3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Hill Farmstead. An unclear pale yellow colored beer with a finger-thick white head. Lacings. The aroma is piney and grapefruity, with some citrus peel and pineapple. It’s dry, bitter and soft on the palate, with flavors of pine cones and grapefruit dominating. Not much malts to be detected. Lasting finish with pine cones and grapefruit. An easy drinkable and quenching beer. 150610

Pours murky yellow with low white head. Aroma of citrus, mango, passion fruit, pine, the entire fruit bowl... Yum! Taste is mellow fruit sweet with a gentle bitterness present through to the finish. Incredibly smooth and balanced. Body is light and smooth with soft carbonation. These guys certainly know their shit!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 mL growler. Originally reviewed 6/17/2013.
Hazy pale orange. Small white head. Doesn’t retain very well. Wispy surface.
Nose is very grassy and herbal. Slight sweetness.
Taste is grapefruit hop. Sweetness kicks in. The herbal and grassy notes hold off until the finish. Moderate bitterness in the finish.
Medium body. Sweetness keeps it from being light. Medium bitterness and medium low carbonation.
Pretty good, but one dimensional. Very clean, but I’d go for a different hop profile.
