Growler dégusté en compagnie de ma famille chez Paul. Bière pâle, blonde, voilée et mousseuse qui colle au verre comme toutes les bières de cette formidable brasserie. Beaucoup de houblons verts au nez, d’agrumes telles la papaye et l’orange. En bouche, j’ai trouvé les saveurs inégales et malheureusement pas à la hauteur des arômes que j’ai humé si avidement. Amertume sèche à mi palais malgré un corps d’une onctuosité remarquable. Les saveurs rappellent encore une fois les agrumes mais sans être véritablement affirmées. Le bouquet m’a paru un peu mou et sans identité. Bien que bien faite, cette bière ne m’a pas enchanté.

Stoned99 (544) - Quebec, CANADA - AUG 14, 2015
750ml bottle bought today @ Hill Farmstead. Aroma: loads of citrus, grapefruits, pines and some floral notes. App: hazy straw, white ring in the middle of the glass and all around it lacing a nice lacing. Taste and palate: medium body, resinous but soft texture on the palate, soft carbonation, crisp dry bitter finish. Overall: this is good. This is really good. It literally pets my palate. What a great pleasure to drink this. A great offering from HF. Glad I drank it fresh like that.

Growler received in trade. Pours hazy pale golden with a frothy white head that leaves some thin lacing on the glass while dissipating. Smell is fruity and tiny grassy with crackers, freshly baked white bread, pink grapefruit juice, mango, pineapple, papaya, freshly cut grass, pine needles, lemon zest and hints of minerals. Taste is tiny sweet, bitter, fruity and slightly grassy. Mouthfeel is slightly round, slightly round, slightly astringent and medium bodied. Finish is tiny sweet and bitter with white bread, grapefruit juice, mango, papaya, star fruit, freshly cut grass, pine needles, orange zest and lemon zest. Just great! Bitterness, fruitiness and grassiness in perfect balance. Yum!

Draught at Three Penny, 7/24/15
Lightly-to-moderately hazy golden-brass body is topped by a medium-sized white head showing strong retention.
Simcoe has to be one of the most amazing dry hops....no garlic, onion, cat pee issues with it and when it’s used in a dry/late-hop capacity, you don’t get the heavy pine/resin that is associated with boiling it for too long. Instead, juicy red grapefruit, tangy pine, sweet mango and light wintergreen surge forth. There’s a lot more leafy, lush, rather spicy floral notes here, which are well-appreciated and highly enjoyable. The pale malts, well-attenuated, provide soft, unobtrusive balance in the background. Clean yeast character, flawless and with no resin problems or alcohol.
The flavor has the creamy texture of the Excursions #4 I just had, but with a tighter carbonation that helps lend crispness to the beer. Light wintergreen, spruce, lime and red grapefruit flit about the palate, while a very gentle maltiness balances just like in the nose. Bitterness builds some towards the finish, but never to the point of fatigue. Extremely drinkable, flavorful and lacking any harsh pine or heavy bitterness. Nothing flashy, and some may not be wowed by it’s relative tameness, but the execution and elegance here are right up there with the best IPAs I’ve ever had. A real god damned treat!
