3.58/5 rDev -12.9%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5
750 mL growler poured into a snifter. Reviewed from notes.
Appearance - Nearly transparent yellow with a very brief head. Some wisps, but dull.
Smell - Light grapefruit hop and other citrus aromas. Almost nothing else. If I struggle I can almost imagine a touch of pale malt.
Taste - Grapefruit hop and bright citrus flavors. Pale malt more of a player here, but still light. Crisp and not at all bitter.
Mouthfeel - Very light, well carbonated. Very dry.
Overall - Yeah, it's a blonde ale. Not a lot to it, but as usual from Hill Farmstead it's beautifully crafted and technically perfect. This one's just a little less exciting than their other beers.

Enjoyed on tap at Black Back Pub. Light yellow and lacey. A new blonde,hoppy blond, yes with valencia orange.Medium mouthfeel, suitably carbonated.Well executed for what it is. Good though not exceptional creation.Refreshing, drinkable, but not something I want daily.

Pours a pale hazy gold, looks almost like a wit.
Exciting citrus aroma, though not sure I can really pick out the orange that I'm looking for.
Really fresh up front with crisp citrus. Clean grain through the middle and a quenching finish. Bitterness is restrained.
Huh. I was really looking out for a big hit of orange, but am not sure whether I picked up anything other than the citra. A really nice summer beer, not sure if a heavier orange punch would help or hinder.
