From the 12 fl. oz. can. Sampled on December 29, 2017.

The pour is a milky looking pale yellow-orange under a long lasting white foamy head. Maybe some sediment.

The aroma emits a big character of floral and spicy hops and a lower character of sweet white bread.

Medium to full body.

The taste has a semi-sweet malt note that is immediately usurped by the floral hop bitterness that fills up at the end. Enjoyable.

Golden, slightly hazy, fluffy cap of foam. Aroma is pungent citrus and resin. Flavors are super juicy with citrus and stone fruits. Not as much malt/breadiness as I enjoy most, but it's there - a faint biscuit in the background. Excellent hop profile makes this very tasty. Somewhat dry finish makes me take another sip, and repeat. Nice.

A- Every so slightly hazy golden yellow pour from the tallboy into a snifter. A one cm, thick puffy head shoots up and remains with good retention. Lacing is a mix of wide sheets and plentiful spots.

S- A well balanced, juicy aroma that spans the citrus, floral and stone fruit spectrum. Tangerine, apricot, peach, grapefruit, orange, melon, bubble gum and floral hops are downright pungent. All hops.

T- Follows up on the aroma with a similar build of juicy hops with tropical and stone fruit hops up front and floral, citrus and herbal notes beyond that. Mango, bubble gum, melon, tangerine, peach, apricot, pineapple and bitter ruby red grapefruit comes to mind. Just basal level of pale barley for the backdrop.

MF- Creamy and silky smooth body with a medium level of carbonation. Overall at a light-medium thickness and it ends with a soft citrus pith bitterness lingering. Ever so soft like a pillow.

Better beer and name than the Hipster dedicated one. Pungent and juicy hops bring a boat load of stone fruit, citrus, tropical and floral flavors.

Lemon, Grapefruit pith, melon, stone fruit and pine. Cracker malt profile. Very dry finish. Lighter bodied. Nice amount of bitterness, lower sweetness. Pretty good.

Sample from the Thirsty Moose Manchester
Hazy light gold in color with a thin white head. Rich bready caramel maltiness with bits of resin and pine with hints of fruity citrus to counter. Tasty beer but a hint too sweet for my tastes.
