White head with lace. Hazy golden orange.

Tons of citrus and fruit here. Mango and papaya with grapefruit. Floral and tropical.

Light bitterness and stickiness. A very nice beer.

This is in my opinion the best of the S&S Series. So far I have been lucky enough to get growlers of 1, 3, 5, 6 & 7 and I think that 6 was the best overall with 5 a close second.

Thanks to @walderek for this growler. You are too kind, Sir.
Tagged "Best Consumed By March 10th... Consumed on March 13th.
Pours a hazy golden apple cider hue. Slightly loose head rised up nicely. White. Quickly recedes to an insignificant afterthought. But thankfully it pumps out some serious aroma...Mosaic. Grassy, some onion.
Flavor is a mix of more subtle onion, grass, pine, a slight citrus zest, and some really beautiful mineral rich water undertones as well. Slightly creamy in the mouthfeel and finished dry.

On tap. Nice cloudy mix of oj and grapefruit juice. Great lacing. Retention is only downfall. Great smell. Medley of citrus. Fresh peel. Absolute mosaic bomb. This is the type of beer that made me fall in love with the hop. Super juicy. Grapefruit, touch of lime, hint of mango. Rocks the bitter. Another great creamy feel from the HF folks. Bit of stick and juice. Perfect. Great, great beer.

Pours a golden orange color with a medium white head that dissipates. Nice lacing on the glass. Smell is hoppy and pungent with some grassy tones. Taste reflects the same, nice earthy, grassy flavor. Feel is super smooth consistent with their other IPAs. Outstanding
