Canned 4/30 so drinking 5 weeks old. Really hoppy both in aroma and taste with super light in body. A 5% session IPA that I could really get behind regularly if available in my local market and reasonably priced. Another near= miracle beer from HF. Only complaint is that its a touch bitter in finish. Sweeten it up just a touch and it would soar.

Canned 4/30/18

Nice pungent, floral and citrus aroma. Slightly medicinal. Crisp and bitting yeast and hops up front with pithy, earthy grapefruit and melon. Soft, and fluffy in the middle with mineral water/limestone, and a nice smooth mango-orange finish with a touch of sweet berry. Resinous finish with a bit of green flavor.

A beer that is light, easy drinking, yet has body and is packed with flavor. One of the better Citra featured beers I have had.

Poured from a 12 ounce can into a tulip glass.

Pours a hazy golden color with a half-finger of fluffy white head. The head has excellent retention and leaves a nice ring of lacing before settling into a sheet.

The aroma is all Citra with just a hint of Amarillo. Loads of grapefruit, melon and guava followed by some citrus rind and peach.

The taste brings notes of grapefruit, honeydew melon, green tea, peach, and cracker malt.

The feel is light bodied with moderate carbonation. Dry and easy drinking, yet a tad watery.

Overall, a good and highly drinkable pale ale that is respectable by other brewery's standards but highly disappointing for Hill Farmstead. It's light and refreshing but lacks that zesty hop punch of other HF pale ales.
