Picked up a 2L growler of this at the brewery 3 days ago. Pours a hazy blonde color with a beautiful fluffy white head. Exactly what you would expect a 'blonde' ale to look like.

Pungently hoppy on the nose with a powerful combination of tropical/citrus fruits showing some grapefruit, mango, and orange. Floralness of the hops gives a lightly dank undertone. Malts have little opportunity to show themselves here.

A lot going on in a small package with this one. Amarillo and Motueka give you a healthy dose of citrusy goodness with nice notes of grapefruit and even a bit of a lemon/lime character. Slight pine resin and grassy character in the background. While only 40 IBUs, the bitterness does come across nicely with such a light malt load.

Mouthfeel is light and plenty refreshing making this one incredibly drinkable. Overall, as expected, HF and the Alchemist worked their magic with an incredibly tasty session blonde. With so many hit or miss collaborations out there, this one was certainly a hit.
