Cloudy golden, good-sized white head. Great retention, good lace.

Nose contains lots of citrus and tropical fruit. Very bright, lots of pineapple, orange, mango, tangerine. Great.

Flavour is similar. Sticky tropical and citrus fruit; pineapple, tangerine, orange, mango. A touch of grapefruit. Moderately bitter. No significant malt presence to speak of. Very flavourful.

Medium bodied, low carbonation level. Oily.

Overall, an excellent IPA. Very citra heavy. Super juicy.

Thanks to Wowcoolman for sharing this one at his tasting.

Pours a murky light orange with a foamy bone head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus fruit, citrus zest, and slight tropical aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus zest flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer with some great citrus and tropical aromas and flavors that make it super easy to drink.

Poured from the 750ml Growler to my HF Tulip, #properglassware bitches. The growler is approximately one week old.

A: Typical color you'd expect here, the lighting blows in my office where I'm writing this however its a nice burnt orange w/ a tinges of yellow. A fair amount of lacing but not as much as some of the other HF beers I've had.

S: Very nice smell, perfectly balanced - lots of citrus, hops, mango, pineapple.

T: Pretty much knew what was coming - love the taste of this, kind of disappointed I didn't get a 2L of this vs. the SS#7 as it definitely beats it out as my favorite. Lots of tropical fruit on the tongue here with almost a perfect finish, no harshness or even hoppiness - the fruit just fades gradually. Hell, even my burps taste good.

M: Susan feels great in my mouth.

O: This is a fantastic little concoction from Hill Farmstead, I certainly agree with the previous review that this has become one of my favorites and I definitely prefer it over some of the all time favorites of most like Edward.
