Sampled on tap and from a growler.

Pours a bright rose hued, golden color with a slightly pink, dense off white head that fades a little quicker than Edward does. Aroma is floral and hoppy, leafy Citra, grass, lemon, and faint red berries. Medium body, tight carbonation with a dry, slightly tart finish. Hibiscus and Citra add a little more citrus sweetness to front of the flavor than Edward and finish dries out with a grassier Moteuka bitterness and mild tartness. Flavor and body is more like a typical HF APA than previous LWOP beers, but the hibiscus is a nicely balanced addition to make this notably distinct. I suspect I'll like this more than most will but who cares. Super refreshing and crisp, this was a pleasant surprise.

Growler shared by yourefragile. Thanks Michael.

The beer is golden and clear with a soft white head. Fantastic aroma. Fresh hops and oranges. Juicy and smooth. What a delicious beer. I could drink gallons of this. Light in body with a subtle malt presence. Oh my, Hill Farmstead has done it again.

Pour is hazy golden yellow with a tight creamy white head. Nose is light, clean citrus with a fair bit of spice and floral hops. Taste is even more citrusy, fair bit of tanginess to it, light floral notes, gentle carbonation with a medium body body and semi dry finish.
