Poured from a tallboy can into a Dogfish Head tulip

L: Nearly clear light golden pour. Big foamy head leaves great lacing.

S: Light citrus and floral notes.

T/F: Light malts.. gentle citrus hops. Floral and tropical fruit. Melon. Light bodied... zesty carbonation. The finish is more citrus/fruit.

O: A super easy drinking APA. Great flavor... one you could chug most of the day.

Appearance: The slightly hazy orange colored liquid is capped by a fluffy white head; wispy lacing abounds

Smell: Juicy lemon and grapefruit tones with a hint of pine

Taste: Juicy tropical and citrus tones forward with piney bitterness through the middle; slightly grassy in the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: A touch less bitter than an IPA, this is quite a nice and refreshing beer that hits the spot and pairs well with food

Can poured into a Mountain Rambler Brewing Co pint glass

A: Pours golden amber with a creamy off white head that settles to a dense layer that hangs around for a while and leaves some impressive lacing.

S: Orchard and tropical fruit, bright citrus, crackery malt, and a touch of caramel sweetness.

T: Fruity, tropical, watermelon, peach, and passion fruit, bright citrus, lemon, lime, and tangerine, crackery biscuity malt, and a touch of caramel sweetness.

M: Medium body, moderate carbonation, slightly soft on the palate.

O: Really nice pale ale with a unique flavor profile that sets it apart. At 4.7% I could drink this all day.

16oz can poured in to a nonic pint glass.

Pale golden yellow color with a 1F white bubble cap. There's constant micro bubble carbonation rising through a haze.
Abundant lacing.

Tropical fruit mix, peach is evident. Light cracker-like malt. No sugar or alcohol.

A pop of citrus zest to start then the tropical juice flavor follows. A touch of malt sweetness.

Light body, silky feel. Crisp and fresh with a durable hop finish.

TUNA, a winner.

16 oz can. Pours golden with tall, long-lasting, fluffy white head and nice lacing. Aroma is of citrusy hops, mango and bready malt. Body is light and crisp. Herbal hops dominate the palate with ripe fruit and bready malt in the background. Finish is long and dry. OK brew.

I was really excited for this, But was let down tremendously. It literally tasted like fish, and I don't want that out of a beer.
