3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pretty huge DIPA here. Aroma kicks off with tropical and citrus fruits with some fresh cut grass, and flowers. Taste is quite sweet and very bitter and boozy. Really hop oily with lots of abrasive flavors. After the great aroma the taste was a bit of an overly sweet and boozy let down for me. Glad I got to try it but not my favorite.

On tap at the source... Pours a slightly hazy cidery orange brown hue and topped with a creamy white head...sweet tropical fruit and mild mango-ey notes to begin with and ample malt profile to go with it. Dark malt sweetness present throughout. Touch of earthy bitterness but generally sweet mostly. ... Flavors are earthy, herbal and somewhat sweet at first. Pretty caramel malt forward meshing, little butterscotch, with the aforementioned while giving way to a healthy bitterness. Alcohol presence is felt coinciding with the malt sweetness and big bitter finish. Slightly bigger than medium bodied with semi-lively carbonation. This is a big guy and let’s you know it.

Growler shared by Sarro and crew who very graciously hosted us during the Hill Farmstead 3rd anniversary snowstorm. Clear gold pour with nice rocky white head. Dank hop aroma, citrusy, piney, lemon, grapefruit, weed, still quite fruity, really good hop aroma, light honeyed malt notes. Taste is bitter, very hoppy, lots of fruity hops, piney resinous finish. Very light body for the abv. Excellent IIPA.
