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.

Nice juicy, citrusy, light IPA. Drank this all weekend at Magnaball in Watkins Glen, NY August 2015. Not one of their better offerings, but that probably is not the point with this one. I really drinkable, balanced, super flavorful and refreshing IPA/APA.
