Thanks Jason for the bottle!
Pours cloudy gold with a pillowy white head. As usual excellent retention and lacing.
Smells like fresh fruit juice. Loads of mango, pineapple and grapefruit.
Starts off with a little bitter floral flavor. Cracker malts in the middle before finishes with a huge grapefruit rind finish. Do yourself a favor and let this one warm up a bit. It's good cold out of the bottle, but the tropical fruit juices really come through more as it warms and the grapefruit is delectable tart.
Good light creamy mouthfeel with medium carbonation.
Fantastic beer. Perhaps liked S&S #4 a bit more, but this is still delicious. About the only nitpick I have, is it took the beer a bit of temperature to hit its sweet spot. Absolutely love the grapefruit presence.

Looked like an extremely cloudy, vibrant color yellow, not dissimilar to many American wheats or hefeweizens. White head, looked distinct and respectable. Aroma was out of this world, heavenly luscious tropical fruit aromas, this is the creme de la creme of new proprietary hop aromas coming out, this ain't your daddies C hop bomb (nothing wrong with that though).
Taste is replete with solid citrus and tropical fruit bursts, very juicy, the bitterness is very doable, fruit stripe gum kind of pleasantness without all the coppery bitter bite of bandwagon jumper double ipa fools in recent years. A distinct amount of peach to it. Malt aspect of the beer is only enough to keep the hops running in ridiculous amounts of flavor punch. Its light. Pineapple and peach together at last, with all kinds of mango, lemon and tangerine thrown in to round out the hop mouthfeel. Yowza! Typical for Hill Farmstead, the alcohol is nowhere to be found tastewise, its just a massively enjoyable beer. Extremely dry finish, this is just one of many beers to seek out if you call yourself a hophead.
Massively awesome stuff.
