RR growler sent by a friend in San Fran. I believe it is this Hop 2 It based on ABV...

A: crystal clear deep blond. bright white head. good retention. lots o lacing.

S: smells like melon and pineapple. a decent pine underbelly. grain as well. a light toast backs up the major hop aroma.

T: very similar to the nose, except I get more pine flavor on the forefront. the melon fruit seems to follow and linger into the finish. very pleasant. a juicyfruit bubblegum lingers on the palate. not bitter in the least.

M: unfortunately my growler lost a little fizz. light to moderate body.

D: super drinkable and certainly my favorite part. incredible ease to come back to this glass. no complaints about having to finish this growler.
