Had this at the Prohibition Pig in Waterbury last week after tasting some Lawsons (Sip O sunshine), Hill Farmstead (Abner, George, Society & Solitude #5) and Heady Topper and this was my favorite beer of the weekend. For me, this is the perfect beer, right now at least.

750mL growler purchased 6/5/13 and poured into a HF snifter on 6/7.

A. Pale gold. Hazy. White head, light lacing.

S. Lemony citrus bordering a light grapefruit. grass. slightly resinous and piney. smells like citra, sorachi, simcoe.

T. Smooth yet intense. Bitter, but not harsh. Same lemon citrus. very tasty.

M. Light and crisp, toungue coating bitterness, but fades fast enough for ou to need another sip. Or another growler.

O. Amazing. I wish I could have it every day.

a - Pours a very light golden yellow. An ever so slight haze can be noted as well. When poured a small amount of head forms, about half a finger width. The head dissipates rather quickly with no real lacing noticeable. This looks like it's going to taste like the perfect beer.

s - A light hop note. Citrus up front and in your face. Slight smell of pine on the tail end. It smells 'perfect.'

t - Lots of the citrus notes to start....pineapple, grapefruit, mango. Bitterness to follow. Not overpowering at all. Very pleasant.

m - Mouthfeel is as expected. Spot on for the style.

o - Overall this is an awesome beer. No big surprise. Would definitely revisit this if the opportunity presented itself. Very sessionable....could kill a bunch of this on a hot day. Head up to HF and pick some up if you can.
