look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.75

Growler picked up at HF 10 days ago (I know, shame on me). But it turned out very well.

Pours with a healthy 2F of fluffy, bright white head that fades to a skim film over a very cloudy golden body. Awesome lacing.

Aromas have a LOT going on. Dull mango, guava, lime, herbal oregano, earthy, and leafy.

Mouthfeel is clean, dry, and refreshing. Medium body. Flavors continue the herbal and tropical fruity qualities. Mango, peach fuzz, guava fruit, some bready malt - wheat crackers. Even a kiss of lime in the finish. Light bitterness, some funk, but not distracting.

What a kick ass pale ale. Just exudes pure quality. Glad I made the huge trip, and can't wait to share the two other growlers of Susan and S&S #7 with beer buds on Monday.

Serving type: growler

Pour is a cloudy pale yellow with a fluffy pure white head. Nose is heavy tropical fruit of pineapple and grapefruit with a nice balance of grain and bread crust. Taste is very balanced, strong clean grain, less hop forward than the nose. Carbonation is strong and the body is light with a powerful bitterness on top of the grapefruit on the rear end of the palate.
