look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured into HF stemware

A-Light golden color, somewhat hazy, white 1/2 head, thick lacing that coats the glass

S-lots of sweet citrus tropical hops, mango, grapefruit, orange, pineapple

T-taste really good but having a difficult time picking out individual flavors...dank hops. some grapefruit, lemon, orange, grassiness, no one flavor seems to stand out but they blend well together. slight bitter finish

M-creamy, mild to low carbonation, medium bodied, real mouthful for the style

O-very drinkable, smooth, taste great as flaovrs blend well.

look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

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.
