Served from a 2 day old growler into a Lost Abbey Teku.

Appearance- Cloudy golden color with one finger white head that left miniam llacing.

Smell- Some lemon, pine, tangerine, peaches, and white grapes. Minimal malt characteristics. No booze.

Taste- Pretty much follows the nose but with more grassy and piney notes. Finishes medium hop bitterness and lingering earthy/grassy notes.

Mouthfeel- Very light and extremely easy to drink. Medium carbonation with a moderatly dry finish.

Overall- A very nice single hopped pale. Extremely easy to drink.

A-Pours a cloudy, pale yellow color. This brew sports a pretty little cap of soft white foam. Decent lacing.

S-The Citra hop is in full bloom. Citra has such a magnificent, delectable aroma and Hill Farmstead has showcased it in masterful fashion. I could go on and on with descriptors but instead I will say that this beer smells of glorious Citra.

T-Citra hop, perhaps the best hop in my opinion. The flavor packed into this beer is laughably intense. The whole cornucopia of hop-driven fruit flavors is present here. I loved up the finish; it finishes like a Pale Ale. A nice little sweetened doughy character that keeps the spotlight on the hoppiness.

M-Water substitute.

O-I have wanted to try this little beaut for quite some time. I am so impressed with this beer. Flavor, drinkability, texture. Hill Farmstead-Thanks once again.
