16oz can dated 12/1/17.

Pours cloudy gold with a pillow head of white. Nice retention and lacing. Mild hop notes of peach, melon, and grapefruit in the nose. Medium bodied with a creamy, fluffy mouthfeel. Pithy and dry on the palate with a slightly coarse bitterness. Grapefruit pith with bitter pine and zero malt. Finishes with a coarse, hollow bitterness and citrus pith.

A bit rough and bitter with a nose that lacks.

A bit underwhelmed but ok. Light in color..faint nose and flavor. Kinda like a session NE IPA in its muted aspects.

Pours a very cloudy muted gold colir with a one finger soapy head that settles to a film quickly with not much lacing.

Aroma is surprisingly sweet with solid orange tones, maybe a little grapefruit behind it.

Taste is more tart up front with grapefruit and lemon rind notes while the orange lingers far in the background, coming through in the finish only. Very light malt and bitterness is fairly low. Makes for a very crisp beer.

Feel is soft and clean with no stickiness.

This is a crisp and refreshing beer with a very pleasant flavor profile. Loving it!

Had this on tap at Night Shift. Hazy gold with a sticky head. Citrusy aroma. Flavor is more earthy. Fairly crisp. Quite good, though not my favorite hop variety.

Pint can. 11/30/17. Opened on 12/11/17

A hazy straw gold color. Thick and rocky white foam cover. Holds up well. Big lace.

The Ella hop aroma is rather extraordinary, sweet tropical fruits, pineapple, pear, apples and cream. Very juicy, slight citrus and wicked tropical. Not much eathiness or green notes to be detected.

Oh my! What an excellent hop flavor. A very complex hop effect that includes: dry, herbal earthiness ( unlike the nose) rustic citrus, earthy grains and sour fruits. The malt rides right along side with a dry, herbal bite, wheat and crystal style malt. Soft tropical fruits like, honeydew mellon and starfruit keep it interesting. Grainy, slightly earthy fruity effect overall.

The mouthfeel starts out with a nice, crisp, grainy malt kick. Juicy in the middle with a slightly smooth, then dry finish. Complex body.

Overall, a very impressive and complex hop strain, well executed with a bold and sweet fruity aroma. Much more well rounded and complex flavor that includes serious earthiness. This one covers alot of ground.
