Sampling right now on 3/24/14. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a pint glass.

Pours a copper-orange in color with a thin white head that lasted through the drinking. Lots of lacing was seen with each sip. The aroma is of various hops and grains. The taste is the same with a slight citrus and floral coming through, BUT ends with a bitter and dry aftertaste. Seems to get stronger with each sip. Ended up pouring about half of it out since it was too 'hoppy' for my liking.

Perhaps my taste-buds don't appreciate pale ales and IPAs properly, but I have yet to find one of either category that I like. They taste like soapy water mixed with intolerably bitter hops, in my opinion. Could barely finish Goose Island's Ten Hills Pale Ale, with every sip becoming harsher and harsher in terms of flavoring. Perhaps I'm just not one for these kinds of beers, however, I can at least appreciate that more time, effort, and labor goes into these than your average macrobrew. As usual, I'm stuck at the corner of admiration and recognition rather than actual appreciation.

No smell and look is very dark. Taste is basically malty and not that great.

Nice color. Thin head. Generic flavor. Meh.
