Pours brilliantly clear straw with a huge foamy white head that laces well. I mean this is probably one of the lightest colored beers I have ever seen! Smells weedy, earthy, and spicy from what I assume is the use of noble hops. Taste has a very lightly toasted bread sweetness with the spicy and earthy hops bringing it perfectly into balance. Feel is so light and crisp, very refreshing and dry but not too dry. Overall, another winner from Pizza Port, and I think I've found my new summer beer thanks to it's new can format. Cheers!

On tap at Pizza Port Solana Beach. Grandview was one of my favorite surf spots growing up so I had to try this. Tulip.

A: Gold in color with a finger of white froth.

S: Cracker, biscuit, and doughy malt. There's a whisper of sulfur and a touch of mineral. Just a little fruit and a restrained spicy floral note.

T: Lightly bitter with lots of biscuity malt. There's a little toasted character and some lemongrass. A little sulfur. Finish is crisp, dry, and clean.

M: Light body with upper medium carbonation.

Overall: A pretty good beer. Not overly complex but refreshing and easy to drink with pleasant malt flavors.
