Super Fresh Growler pour from my man Frank. Huge thanks for letting me try this absolutely insane ipa. Pours an ultra murked out yellow gold color with small snow white head and nice occasional lace patterns. Aromas of the juciest and most resinous hop flowers imaginable, tons and tons of grapefruit guts, pineapple, light tang, lemon fuel, mango. There has to be some riwaka or motueka in here, donít get quite the amount of cheese from nelson. Taste is the same as the aroma, and maybe more impressive. Perfectly dry and bitter in the close. Epic!

750ml swing-top, thanks to phaleslu for sharing. Best consumed by 8/22/14. Hazy golden orange color. Totally hazy. Thin ring of white head. Leaves some kinda loose bits of lace. Awesome big zesty grassy grapefruit kind of lime. Flavor is an explosion of tropical flavors, pretty impressive. Not as bitter as most hop forward beers, the aroma of the hop shines, rather than this just being extremely bitter. Not as assertive, good balance to this, really impressive hop aroma. Grapefruit. So impressively clean. Just a mild plain crackery malt. Moderate bitter taste, but not bothersome at all. Like the opposite of astringent. Mild to moderate sweet. Medium-plus body, lighter than the ABV would suggest. Could be like a bigger bodied pale ale. Super smooth, lighter carbonation. Super easy drinking, refreshing, bright DIPA. Fantastic stuff. I usually raise an eyebrow at HF hype. But this one is bonafide outstanding.

Growler shared by Kyle! Pours a hazy pale gold with a white head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has a sweet citrus note with a bit of bitterness with a light sweet grain backbone. Flavor has a bit more bitter citrus with some sweetness and a light sweet grain backbone.

sloth (2464) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - JUN 3, 2014
Medium sized, fluffy white head that really lasts, lacing is thick, coating and lasting.Seriously murky, blond in color. Citrusy, resiny, piney nose, lightly earthy and somewhat dank. Med/full body, velvety on the tongue with a really soft carbonation, juicy and fat, mouthwatering. Danky, green hop flavors, largely citrus with notes of pineapple juice and some burnt wiring, hint tropical and spicy. Dry finish with a lighter than expected bite, some stone fruit notes. Just juicy goodness, fresh. Props to WillRunForBeer for the growler, awesome! Thanks again Brian!

pinkie (462) - New York, USA - JUN 2, 2014
Pours hazy and like grapefruit juice. Yellow and with a thin white head of foam that fell pretty fast. Leaves some lace. Nose is citrus! Orange, grapefruit and a little sweet grass. The malt peeks itís head out with a touch of sweetness on the nose. It drinks lovely. Not a hint of alcohol on the palate. Just beautiful citrus. sweet orange, sweet earth, a touch fo grapefruit and some grass. Finishes with a perfect bitter that does not reside too long and that reminds you to take one last notice of all that fruit. Malt is a bit of weight on the palate but has a sweetness that seems to come out of no where and so delicately. Drinks clear and fruity and finishes dry but with a bit of tartness to keep your mouth watering long into the finish. Another fabulous beer from Hill Farmstead.

Bottle @ Chriso May 14 tasting. Pours hazy pale gold, fruity aroma with a resinous hoppy double IPA character, fresh with zesty citrus and hoppy grapefruit bitterness. Tasty.

Growler drank one day after purchase. Pour a beautiful blond with a foamy white head. Aroma is very citrusy along with the usual Hill Farmstead dankness. Taste is grapefruit zest, some bready malts and a lingering resinous bitterness. Full bodied with lively carbonation. Another stellar hoppy beer from Hill Farmstead.
