750ml growler poured into a tulip. Big thanks to Kegatron for the share. The brew appears a hazy golden yellow color with a white cap about a finger strong. Quite soapy looking cap fades leaving spotty lace on the glass.

The smell is downright juicy with hops. Some tropical fruity and floral notes get grassy to herbal with a fresh grain backing. This is somewhat catty and dank as it warms up.

The flavor brings everything showcased in the nose. Fruity and floral hops are slightly tropical and almost lemony blending to pithy rinds but with a very lowkey level of bitterness. It is somewhat grassy towards the finish with a hint of straw/cereal grains to balance things out.

This is a medium to lighter bodied bree with a modest amount of carbonation. An entire bounty of hop flavor with mild bitterbess. This is effortlessly drinkable, you could kill this by the gallon. Really a show stopper in the style that reaches out of bounds and into the highly hopped sort of session IPA/pale ale territory moreso than the typical blonde. Thank you Heath, this sure was a winner.

Growler filled a couple days ago, shared with rudzud.

Pours a decent creamy head covering, hazy murky blond peach pineapple color. Great soapy lacing.

Nose is great, bright floral tropical fruit, lots of citrus, tons of citra, hint of the kiwi tropical fruits, light floral character, passion fruit, grapefruit pith, orange creamsicle, mild dank resin and musty, papaya, little tangerine, etc.

Taste is juicy, a mix of the juicy citrus tropical fruit with a little blond grainy malt almost straw like, little grainy and crackery with a hint of yeast. Nice mango and passion fruit, less citrus, little orange rind and musty resin. Mild melon like and grapefruit pith, little thin though. Finish is dry and fairly bitter, nice grapefruit and passion fruit lingering, little melon rind, pretty tasty.

Mouth is med to lighter bod, decent carb, little thin though.

Overall very nice, so much citra and tropical hop fruit character in your face, little thin but still nice.
