1 pint can poured into a tulip. Thanks to Matt for this one!

A - Clean bright amber, with a sticky and frothy off-white head. The head falls to a thin film, but leaves a nice sticky web of lacing.

S - Pretty hop forward, with some fruity and floral notes upfront as well as some spice. Mild pineapple with a touch of grapefruit and a generous dose of mango. A fairly bright and refreshing hop bouquet, but also a little heavy handed, especially for a pale ale. Sweet caramel malt with a hint of honey. Overall intriguing, but not what I'd expect of a pale ale.

T - This one caught me a little off guard, that's for sure. The nose implied a somewhat one-dimensional hop bomb, but the malty balance is here in spades. Hops are floral and spicy, but not too overwhelming, with a nice fruity dimension of mango and orange, and a touch of pine. But there's a terrific malt character here as well pulling it back into pale ale territory. Toasty caramel malt with honey and a pronounced biscuity character. There's a spicy quality to the finish, like rye malt, which I quite like. Overall it's pretty heavy on the hops, but still remains true to style, and most importantly very drinkable.

M - Crisp and lively. Light without being watery. Fitting of the style and compliments the flavor profile nicely.

D - A very drinkable pale ale, with a generous dose of hops added to the mix, but enough malty goodness to bring it back down to earth. Flavorful, but balanced and tasty. I'll admit I'm not a big time hophead, but I could drink this stuff all day.
