3.6/5 rDev -6.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Poured from a can with a canned on date stamped on the carton and the bottom of the can. Slightly hazy, golden hue with a foamy white, sustained head.
The aroma exploded upon opening the can: massive fresh, piney aroma with spicy, sweet malt.
This 4.4 ABV ale packs a lot of flavor. It begins with a zesty, lemony flavor with some refreshing hop bitterness. A faint sour flavor lowers the taste score.
Light-bodied with spritzy carbonation (perhaps a little too much). A mellow sweetness coats the tongue.
It is always a treat to have a flavorful but low alcohol ale. While this ale was good, the over-carbonation and the faint sour flavor kept this one from being truly sessionable.

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
