Reviewed as an American Pale Ale
A: Golden yellow. Stronger carbonation. Beautiful, 1 inch white head sits on top. Looks sessionable.
S: Lots of citrus fruit. Orange and tangerines are ever present. Some tropical papaya and mango comes out as well. A light fruitiness sits in the background. The malts really don't add much. A touch of maltiness would have made this perfect.
T: At first drink, this isn't really flavorful at all. As the beer rolls off the tongue, a ton of hop flavors come out. The orange, tangerine and mango flavors really are there after you swallow. The bitterness is really mild for the amount of flavor you get from the hops. There is a lingering piney flavor in the back of the throat. Once again, the malts really do not come out much. There is a light caramel flavor, but it dies out quickly. Unfortunately the flavors die out really quickly.
M: Light bodied. Very clean bitterness. Finishes plenty dry. Stronger carbonation than some pale ales.
D: A very nice beer. A little more flavor would have been great. Otherwise, this beer is great. It is definitely one of the more drinkable pale ales out there. I could have this on tap at my house and be quite happy. However, for the price ($9.99 a sixer), I may be happier with a slightly higher alcohol, more flavorful pale ale.

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
