XPA is a clear straw color with a moderate sized bubbly white head, head doesn't have much retention and leaves low (almost none) lacing. Smells of light bread, sweet and a little fruity kinda like musty citrus rinds. Aroma is a little too sweet for me.

Nice light fruity taste, a little bready, very sweet finish. A little too sweet for me, but still pretty enjoyable. Mouthfeel is light with above average carbonation, a little creaminess - right on for a Extra PA.

This beer really isn't anything special, but it is light and easy drinking. Was hoping this to be a little more hop forward like Hop Fish and Red Fish. Probably wouldn't go out of my way to buy it again, yet would be happy to drink it if I don't have a lot of options.

12 ounce into pint glass. Just about the clearest beer I've ever seen, its like a funhouse mirror looking through the glass. Bottle art on current run is sweet, with great typography, modern but classic. The taste, while somewhat bland, is still good. Its not going to win any awards, but its a local brewery for me and worth the price I got it for at Trader Joes ($1.50 per bottle for a mix six).

12 oz bottle with a imprinted best by date of 10 Dec. 2013, served in a snifter.
Clear light amber body.
A light APA, with a relatively (i.e., for style) light body, light aroma, and light flavor.
More hoppy than maltly, with a slightly bitter and quite mild grapefruit rind aftertaste.
Good medium+ carbonation with a dry, mildly bitter finish.
Improved more than expected with some warming.
