I poured this beer into my tumbler at 50 degrees. The beer poured one of the most fat and puffy heads I have ever poured or seen. Held on good also. Beer Color was amber/orange and beer was cloudy. The smell was hoppy as was the taste. The beer had a bit of a bitter finish also. I will not buy again.

Drank straight from the bottle. In my hotel room.
A: Loads of suspended sedinemt in the bottle. Whispy tendrils of yeast slowly float through the bottle.
S: Mildly piney with notes of grass and yeast. Caramel malt adds some balance.
T: Nice harvest hop flavors. Thankfully, the caramel takes a back seat to the hops.
M: Initially, quite dry and bitter. Eventually its' hop oil side shows itself and makes for a slightly sticky and spicy finish.
O: No freshness date, but this seemed like a very well made and fresh APA. Nice!

Slight floral notes on the nose with a little bit of grass. Its a bit weak, unfortunately, because the scents are good - just wish they were more pronounced.
Hop Pocket brings a hazy dark honey color liquor topped with an off-white head that just doesn't go away. Seriously, I think this is the most stable head I have ever encountered in a beer before. I wish it was filtered, might add to the appearance a bit. Really really really nice lacing earns much of it's appearance score.
Flavor is nice! Starts off with a bit of a combination of carbonation bite and bitterness that work in conjunction with each other. The individual flavors are pretty good too: freshly mowed grass, grapefruit, and then it finishes with a sweet note like kiwi or something a bit more on the tropical side. I really like the flavor combinations.
Highly highly carbonated, not to sound gross, but the belches alone are plentiful. Moderate body and a 6% ABV make this quite easy to drink, though not entirely session able. Overall, this beer is okay. I wouldn't buy a 4-pack again, but I wouldn't turn one down if someone wanted to treat me.

12oz bottle into a tulip. A careful pour yields a monstrous beige head atop an amber beer w/ moderate carb. Rocky head sticks around and just doesn't quit, leaves behind ample lacing.
Aroma is floral herbal hops and sweet fruity malt.
Taste is a nice balance of amber malt and floral NW hops, a little spice. Mango & apricot in there too.
Mouthfeel is smooth and thirst-quenching with a clear hoppy finish.
Overall this is a really enjoyable beer that I sucked down before I knew it from a brewery I'd never heard of. Kind of like a slightly maltier NW IPA. Thanks again IrishColonial!

A: Dark, cloudy brow/orange color that produced a solid head and good lacing throughout.
S: Cascade hops and caramel malt
T: Average. Not overwhelmingly bitter, but the finish for me lingered and lasted throughout the pint.
M: Medium bodied, slightly oily
O: Decent beer. I got it through a trade, but I wouldn't trade for it again. The aftertaste just was not enjoyable.
