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.

16oz can dated 7/11/17.

Pours clear gold with an average head and decent retention. Grapefruit pith with shades of pine and lemon zest on the nose. Spicy with a sharp citrus character. Medium bodied with a crisp mouthfeel. Solidly bitter on the palate with plenty of pithy citrus and earthy pine. A trace of toasted biscuits follows though along with some warmth on the throat. Finishes with plenty of bitter citrus.

Tasty and certainly plenty of hops but the bitterness is a bit heavy-handed.
