Huge, fluffy, slightly off-white head. It lasts forever and paints thick web-like lace on the glass. Liquid is bronze, clear and beautiful.
Aroma gives clean hops mostly, veering between citrus and pine resin, with just a kiss of caramel underneath.
Taste-wise, hops are still the main focus, and are more herbal on the tongue than what the aroma hints at. There's a pleasant, bready graininess at its foundation. Almost-rough bitterness hangs out for a long time in the finish. It's simple, but successfully straddles the simple old-school pale ale style and the more hop forward offerings of cutting edge new school brewers.
Feel is very nice, achieving smoothness and softness despite very healthy carbonation.
Hugely drinkable. Love these kinds of beers that don't KO the liver after two or three servings, yet bring with them plenty of pizazz and flavor, as this one does.

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
