Thanks to Mark for sharing, and to Dan for hosting :thumbup:
Quick review from written notes.
Pale pastel straw yellow, canaries on a yellow submarine. Thin ring of spotty lace haloes the glass with a thin veil across the surface.
Soft aromas of lemon zest, pale malt, and citrus.
Flavors of tangerine and passionfruit, hop forward and moderately bitter. Dry grassy green finish. Light bodied and supple, ultimately where HF excels, never too heavy or sticky on the malt side of things. Not all that far off from other iterations of HF IPA's though.

Growler picked up at the bottle release on Thursday, drank Friday. shared with rudzud.
Pours a light creamy head that fades fairly quickly, touch of lacing, super hazy whitish yellow color.
Nose is great, fresh hops, nice citrus with tangerine and bit if stone fruit, mild resin, little earthiness and rich of a grassy almost chewy hop, touch of grapefruit pith and just a touch of tropical fruit.
Taste is like hop water, malt is very light and light feeling, little watery. Hops are fairly bitter, floral grassy almost dandelion like floral, little resin and hint earthy like hop. Citrus like little tangerine, nice grapefruit, juicy citrus light generic tropical fruit. Fair bitterness that overpowers any malt. Finish is dry with little resinous hop character, hint of mint and grapefruit lingering, little watery malt.
Mouth is thin and watery, decent carb.
Overall ok, nice hops but very lacking on malts, so too watery. I expected more from a Shaun Hill IPA.

Growler shared by Lunch. Thanks Paul!
The beer is hazy and yellow with an inch or more of pure white head. The aroma brings fresh hops, lemons, oranges. Lots of citrus in the flavor. Cracker, malt, biscuit character as well, with some lingering toasted bread in the finish. A tad tart, with a hoppy lemon bitterness. A solid beer and easy to drink, albeit less refined and amazing than my favorite Hill Farmstead IPAs.
