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
