A. Hazy straw, very light color with plentiful white foam that leaves a light lacing.

S. Floral. A little orange, and maybe a little dank. Mild. A light malt sweetness comes through as well.

T. Follows suit from the aroma. Floral, orange citrus, dank. And mild. A certain pilsner malt bread-like flavoras well, especially as it warms.

M. Light bodied, medium to light carbonation.

O. Tasty, for sure. It just didnt wow me. I guess I am so used to HF knocking it out of the park, that a decent beer ended up disappointing me. Very plain, with a very subdued hop profile.

Growler shared with Curran and Umberto last night.

Pours a golden yellow, with some orange tinges. There's a one inch head, and some good lacing down the glass.

Smells and tastes pretty stereotypically Amarillo-like, a little bit of citrus (grapefruit and lemon, mainly), slightly catty, a bit of pine. Not much malt to speak of. Fairly floral as well, with some up-front bitterness that lingers on the palate.

Light to medium bodied, crisp, biting mouthfeel. Very drinkable.

Hill Farmstead strikes again, not really a surprise.
