SS6 fill from a few days ago poured cold. Soapy white head with less lace than hill farm usual. Smells upfront if the mosaic piney, floral, hoppy. Taste is on point with upfront earthy pine needles, floral notes and a smooth coating malt profile. Mouthfeel creamy but semi bitter and dry

SS 6
A- hazy straw color with fluffy white head. White lacing all over the glass.
S- mango, banana, passion fruit, melon
T- follows the nose with light tropical fruits like mangos, banana, honeydew melon, melon pear, and pineapple.
M- light body with moderate carbonation. Sticky hops. Oils coat the palate pleasantly.
O- another killer beer from HF. I love the mosaic hops. The more fruity and tropical the IPA the better. Easy to drink with tons of flavor and no harsh bitterness.
