An orange/amber beer. Good-sized tan head that dissipated quickly. A good deal of lacing.
Dank, floral aroma. Sweet malt.
Hoppy. Grapefruit. Caramel.
Smooth. Nice balance.

The beer pours a fairly hazy ruby tinted orange with a perfectly sized head. offers up some caramel and chocolate malty notes first, then the hops kick in with pine and pineapple in the lead. The flavor starts with mold caramel sweetness, and the seugues into some floral flavors, followed by a nice shot of pine, which lingers in the finish with some more caramel and a touch of grapefruit peel. The mouthfeel is fairly full with some medium carbonation. Overall this is a very nice IPA, maltier than I generally enjoy, but the flavor profile is so powerful, that the whole beer just works.

Got on trade! 12oz can served at 4deg C in a draught glass

A- Opens well and pours a 1/2" high white head that lasts for 3-4mins before film out. Dark gold colour and filtered clear

S- Nice hops here. Lots of sweetness

T- Nice hops. Touch sweet and malty though. It's definitely an APA more than an IPA. Just has that high sugar/malt presence.

M- Sticky from the sugar.

O- Not a great IPA but very good. Decent style but will not buy if I see it.

Food Pairing

This pretty good brew went well with...... Beer burritos!

Enjoy

12 oz. can, tulip

A – Deep amber with high clarity, a touch of chill haze that clears. Huge, thick frothy off-white head that lasts forever.

S – Spicy mango, papaya, light pine and resin. Rich bread crust and a bit of caramel.

T – Very similar to the aroma, with stronger resin notes and papaya, spicy on the back end. Backbones of sweet bread crust, and finishes with a blast of hop bitterness.

M – A lot of malt sweetness up front, with moderate-full body, but strong hop flavor and bitterness balances it well. Carbonation is moderate to moderate-low.

O – Just an excellent DIPA, tons of aroma and flavor.

Pours a foggy copper color with an off white head. Nice hop aroma, big malt backbone. Smooth finish. IMHO, a big improvement over Dale's Pale Ale.
