Wow, from the moment you pop the growler top, the aroma is amazing: citrus, hops. Flavor is white grapefruit, coriander and other citrus flavors. Light bodied (not thin at all) and pleasant tingle on the finish

A: Hazy, straw colored. Looks like pineapple juice with a thin white head that dissipates quickly.
S: Hint of tropical citrus, pineapple and mango stand out.
T: Similar to the nose with a hint of grapefruit bitterness.
M: Medium carbonation with a thin body and a slightly bitter/dry finish.
O: Another solid HF beer!

Light golden moderately hazy look, with a foamy white head with some lasting power. Very little lacing. Mild citrus in the nose and taste. Medium body mouthfeel. Good summer drinker.
