The beer comes in a beautifully hazy golden yellow.

The aroma is Mosaic all the way. The essence of grapefruit peel, guava, kumquat, hints of tropical, but not sweet, ripping, or juicy.

The flavor follows with those flavors along with almost a fake candy flavor, or powdery candy. A fake blueberry candy or jam. But still, it’s that hard to describe guava, essence of citrus and mango, peach, kumquat, big pink grapefruit. There’s a beautiful citrus peel bitterness on the finish, a medium to medium minus bitterness.

A extremely clean, easy drinking, definitely the best hoppy beer from Hill Farmstead, even over Abner.

Quite possibly the best beer I have ever had. Reminiscent of all the best elements of Double Sunshine, Focal Banger, and King Sue. The ultimate expression of proper dank and seductive citrus hops. From the nose, to the tip of the tongue, to the mid palate and aftertaste, perfect in every way. A compellingly lascivious masterpiece!!!
