Thanks to chippo33 for sending this one. 750ml growler poured into a snifter.
A: Pours a very hazy golden-orange color, with a paper thin white head. Carbonation looks to be lacking a bit.
S: Wonderful juicy, tropical aroma I've come to expect with Citra hops. Loads of citrus fruits, pineapple, and mangos. Sweet sweet nectar.
T: Much subtler than the aroma. Still tropical and citrusy, with a slight bitterness, but it just seems to be slightly lacking. Fruity and refreshing.
M: Very light, with minimal carbonation.
O: Tasty and refreshing, but I had higher hopes. Not sure if the lack of carbonation is due to the growler seal, but it seemed to somewhat flat. The aroma was top notch, but I would have liked more bitterness or a dry finish to go with the juicy fruity flavor. Still a really good refreshing APA, but not the awesomeness I've come to expect from HF brews.

From 03/10/14 notes. Big thanks to BeerLawyer85 for sharing this one; thanks Ross! 64 oz. growler split 2 ways, so got a good 30 oz's of this or so. Poured into a tulip.
a - Pours a murky, bright yellow color with two inches of bright white head and moderate carbonation evident. Looks really nice.
s - Smells of citrus hops, lemongrass, lemon zest, floral hops, fruity malts, light grapefruit, and some bready malts. Lots of citrus. very nice nose.
t - Taste follows the nose pretty closely. Tastes of citrus hops, lemon zest, grapefruit, honey, floral hops, light pine, fruity malts, earthy notes, and light tropical notes. Taste is lightly bitter as well.
m - Medium body and moderate carbonation. Very easy to drink with the tiniest bit of bitterness.
o - Overall I thought this was a very good beer. It is not their hoppiest beer, but it is very good and still has a good amount of citrus hops to it, and it is very drinkable. I wouldn't put it on the level of Zombie Dust or Hoppy birthday in terms of pale ales, but I think it is on par with Edward and still great.

On tap at Prohibition Pig. In a tulip the beer was a hazy yellow color, very pretty, with a medium-sized white head. There was a bit of lace.
Aroma was citrus and floral hops, with some sweet malt.
Grapefruit. Flowers. Bread.
Shaun Hill can certainly brew beer.
