4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
As soon I popped the top on this growler I was attacked with a huge hoppy presence. Grapefruit is huge! Citrus isn’t lagging far behind and a piney aroma brings up the rear. I could of sat there all night long just taking in the aroma of this beer. Amazing!
Now a lot of the time iyou’ll hear me say something like “The taste doesn’t match the aroma” Not here. I think the taste is actually better than the aroma. The hop profile here isn’t “clean”. Instead it’s a deep hop aroma. It’s hard to explain other than say it’s a dank and dirty and it’s just over the top fantastic. Huge amount of grapefruit, citrus, and pine. It just sits there, lingers There seems to be some other tropical fruits mixed in there but the grapefruit and citrus take frontstage and run away with the show. You can tell this beer is dry hopped big time. It just sits in the mouth. There’s a slight bitterness to it that comes in about half way and lingers just a tad on the aftertaste. Everything about this beer just worked for me. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, chewy, and leaves a bit of a dryness on the palette.

Une robe brouillée superbe comme toutes les IPA de Hill Farmstead. Le nez est rempli de fruits tropicaux, d’orange et d’un côté floral tout à fait inspirant. Des notes d’ananas, d’orange, de cantaloup, de melon miel et de fruits de la passion. Une finale composée d’une touche sucrés et d’amertume franche mais pas du tout envahissante. Une douceur en bouche et des saveurs si rafraîchissantes.

Shout out to Magneto aka Klimaet..
Pour a hazy bright orange, with a small and white head.
Aroma is pretty darn delicious, with hops juice all over the place.. Grass, slight floral, plenty and plenty of citrus fruits and orange peel, faint hints of a malty and backbone..
Taste is pretty darn bitter and dry, but very well balanced.
Fizzy carbonation with a rather full bodied, that suits this beer perfectly. Why doesn’t all imported IIpas taste is thise when arriving to Europe? This is gewd.

Aroma of lemon, grapefruit, orange and mango. Taste of spruce, mango, grapefruit. A bit too bitter and not as soft as other Hill Farmstead, and more lackluster.
