12oz can poured into tulip pint glass; canned on January 15th. Thanks to Jesse13713 for this one.
A: Pours an almost crystal-clear amber-copper with three fingers of frothy, foamy white head, good retention, and great lacing.
S: Lots of citrus hops, a bit of must, and a solid backbone of caramel malts. (It's hard not to devalue this after my experiences with the beer's other categories, but since this was an unbiased reviewing of smell, I'll leave it.)
T: Despite the excitement the smell had built up to this point, my mouth is greeted by a light bitterness and a long, lingering metallic finish. Just a flash of malty sweetness before that finish kicks in, but only if you're looking for it. Something about the taste of this reminds me of the sickening flavor of poppy tea (if you've ever had it, you almost certainly know how disgusting it is).
M: Thin-bodied, with light carbonation and not much texture at all. Thin is the best word to describe this, and it doesn't leave much impression beyond that.
D: Well, it goes down easily, but I don't know that I am too interested in having it again. This glass may be finished slowly.

12oz : tulip
Hazy, golden orange with a fizzy, whispy white head.
Resiny, piney, citric, grapefruit hops with a bready caramel malt backbone.
Medium body, fizzy, foamy mild carbonation.
A very well done lower ABV pale ale. The ABV makes it very easy drinking, while still maintaining a tasty, hoppy flavor.

12oz can poured into snifter.
Upon cracking the can, a strong pineapple and grapefruit aroma is present.
A) 4-It pours a quarter inch head that settles into a fine misty layer on the surface with a bit of glass lining. The beer is an orangy-peach color, initially was very cloudy. It clarifies some, but not completely.
S) 5-It's a session, extra pale that smells like your finest double ipa. Pineapple, citrus, grapefruit and a fine pine, great outdoors rush.
T) 3.75- Bitter in the fore, and bitter in the finish. Not as sweet as was anticipated. Very piny, but more bitter than pine, with a touch of lemon in the finish. The beer boasts a modest 42ibu, but you'd guess higher.
M) 3.5- The beer is very light in its consistency. It has a fine carbonation to it . The beer has a light to medium malt profile, that goes largely unnoticed, the main focus being the hops. The beer has a dry finish, with a lingering bitter and belches that reignite the hop receptors of the brain.
O) 4.0625- Nuff said
