4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Thanks to tderoeck! Pours a hazy yellow orange color with a tight white cap. The smell is grapefruit and tropical fruit. The taste is red on grapefruit initially with some softer tropical fruit notes coming in later with a touch of honey sweetness, ending dry and somewhat bitter. On the light side of medium with the typical Hill Farmstead wonderfully fine, elegant carbonation. Great stuff!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap during DLD 2014. Pours a cloudy yellow orange with a white head. Aroma came across like a fart laden grapefruit at first. Kind of light on the hop aroma. The taste is light and on the bitter side of balanced. Not as amazing as people make it out to be. KingSue was the star of the show that day.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pour is hazed golden yellow with an off white head. Nose is juicy, tropical fruit and citrus, a hint resiny and oily in back. Light grain profile up front and some malt sweetness to balance. Taste has more bitterness than I thought it would, lighter body and softer carbonation. The grain is soft up front, hop driven. Citrus, pine fades to a more leafy herbal note, a strong grapefruit bitterness lingers with a fairly dry finish.

4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Growler thanks to GT. Pours a glowing light gold color with medium sized white head. Can smell this from a mile away, big aromas of overripe grapefruit, mango, pineapple juice, slight hop spiciness, marshmallow. The palate is juicy with flavors of tropical fruits, round citrus, sweetness but not malt sweetness more of a fruit sugar sweetness. Still manages to be light on its feet, finishing clean with some leafy bitterness.
