On tap at BeerShop, NYC.
Pours a hazy straw orange color. A moderately large head forms a nice foam cap, displays decent retention and yields sticky lacing.
Aroma opens with citrus pith and tropical fruit juice. Notes of tangerine, orange, mango and pineapple. Light aromas of bready malt, hint of grass and faint herbal dank.
Juicy overall with dry, even slightly tart, and muted flavors of tropical fruit, citrus and herbs. Flavors of grapefruit pulp, orange pith, lemon, dry mango, pineapple, guava, even pear. Grassy and earthy hops flavors evoke prickly pine needles that gently scrub and balance the middle palate. Little to no hops bitterness. Muted dry bready malt flavor.
Medium bodied, moderately carbonated and smooth drinking. The finish is dry and pithy.
Very sessionable and flavorful. I could crush several of these.

Hazy golden color. Aroma is herbal and grassy with linden flowers notes. Taste is more earthy, even a bit nutty, light bitterness on the finish. Quite light and easy drinking.

Opaque orange-yellow with a thick, persistent white blanket leaving a few waves of lace on the glass.

Smell is orange, pineapple, mango and even green apple with some spicy accents of dank cannabis and smoothing vanilla creme.

Taste is spicy eucalyptic pine with toasty cracker, orange zest, orange rind, dense shortbread, mango and a hint of weed.

The moderate body has a mild, soft carbonation and a paper dry finish.

Had this on tap at Whetstone Station in Brattleboro. The beer had a thick, yellow color appearance with no real head, but some bubbles on top. The aromas were a sharp orange citrus; very full to the nose while approachable. The taste followed the nose well by being an orange juice explosion of flavors. The mouthfeel had a medium body with some good crispness. Overall, this was a great beer to have with my burger.

I have been plowing through the two six packs I was allowed to buy on my trip last month and it seems that each can has only gotten better. Thank you Hill for canning this!

12oz can poured into a Skrip's Big Day tulip.

A~ light orange like a creamsicle with the head. small white fluffy head and a little lacing.

S~ melon and a little under ripe banana along with some earthy hops and fresh biscuity malt.

T~ follows the nose for the most part more fruit presence here with the same melon and under ripe banana. slight bitterness on the end.

M~ extremely soft, nice carb and refreshing.

O~ definitely my favorite of this little series. the Hallertau Blanc really adds some interesting fruit flavors and the mouthfeel is to die for!
