Very Good
Notes: Brewed with Pilsner, Vienna, and flaked oats. We rode it hard with Citra and Mosaic. The Gull displays intense tropical fruit, berry salad and a touch of pine.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

L - opaque unfiltered yellow stream, good, quick head that dissipated quickly; not much lacing TBH.
S - So if it "looks like a Pilsner" it actually smells like a smaller version of some of their bigger IPAs. Reminds me a bit of Vallejo or Gone Away. In any case, just think Pacific breeze meets dank pineapple orange grove and it's close.
T - Good, but a little thin on taste; more of the aroma. Tropical, weed, a little lemony. Interesting not mind-blowing.
F - Good but not thunderous carbonation or finish on this. Drops off a dry Fijian cliff.
O - a good, but not great, pale ale from HABC

Tasted in a Spiegelau IPA glass from a one pint can on June 15, 2018. Canned 06/11/18. Brewed with Pilsner, Vienna, and flaked oats. We rode it hard with Citra and Mosaic and touched on a bunch of mod slants on packing hop luster. Displays intense tropical fruit, berry salad and a touch of pine.
