poured from a 750 ml growler into a hill farmstead stemmed glass.
A - hazy pale gold with fluffly white head that bubbles off quickly but leaves good lacing on the glass.
S - somewhat faint and unmistakably citrusy. the hop aroma seems to develop over time in the glass, and i got more fresh pine towards the end. befitting its origins, it smells extremely fresh.
T - big citrus, transitioning into a bright, hoppy bitterness. serious citrus zing with each swallow. particularly lemony, in my opinion. finishes off with a pleasant yeast note before you're left with the hops as a lingering aftertaste. maintains some of the ultra-dry, hoppy qualities of west coast ipas but this is a more mellow pour.
M - light, crisp body and perfectly carbonated.
O - like some other hf beers, enlightenment is elegant to the point of confounding. rather than going after big flavors, this is a beer about balance and creating a completely unified sip, from smell to swallow. it took me most of a growler to realize that it's a stunner.
Serving type: growler
