Growler to vessel

Light hazy yellow with a solid quilt of whites. Smells of resin, grapefruit, some light malts, a little bit of orange zest. Some bits of peach also in the nose. Flavor is light malts, some sweetness, some grass and pear juice, some interesting chemical character. Really not seeing the appeal others are getting here; seems really simple and not really all that special. Medium on full bodied for the style with fairly hi carb and an off dry finish. Meh.

750 mL growler poured into a Hill Farmstead wine glass.

Appearance - Hazy pale orange. Small white head. Doesn't retain very well. Wispy surface.

Smell - Very grassy and herbal. Slight sweetness.

Taste - Grapefruit hop. Sweetness kicks in. The herbal and grassy notes hold off until the finish. Moderate bitterness in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Medium body. Sweetness keeps it from being light. Medium bitterness and medium low carbonation.

Overall - Pretty good, but one dimensional. Very clean, but I'd go for a different hop profile.

Pour is hazed pale yellow with a tight white head. Nose is mango, citrus, and grapefruit extremely strong. Faint touch of pine and herbal hop. Taste is not as fruity and bright as the nose. Taste has a hint of malt up front, lightly toasted. Hops take over, more grapefruit and less tropical fruit. Light herbal tea hop in back with a moderate bitterness in the finish. Well carbonated and soft body.
