White head with lace. Slight hazed yellow.

Some juiciness here. Grapefruit. Citrus fruit. Floral and earthy.

Lighter bodied. Nice feel. Light bitterness and a bit of stickiness.

Solid offering.

A solid offering. Not as much Citra as I would have expected from Hill Farmstead in a Citra Single Hop PA but it was solid. I like the S&S series of beers much more..

On tap at the brewery. yellow, hazy. Smells like citrus. Soft mouthfeel and a nice citrus flavor with some malt to let you know it is not an IPA. good but not as good as the mosaic pale ale.
