Draft at brewery. Another great HF ipa, with light crisp malt and a sort of citrus bouquet, hints of grassy hops. Would love to try a larger, slightly warmer sample. But the foundation is there.

750ml growler pour at Hill Farmstead. Pours slightly hazy, golden yellow. Natural citrus flavor, bitter hop finish. Not too overwhelming. Goes down easy and very enjoyable. In terms of IPAs, one of the best out there.

From notes. Had this one at Doug’s house for a celebration of his birthday on May 14. 750 mL flip-top. Hmm. Didn’t realize this was the Grassroots label. The pour is a hazy straw yellow color with a large white head that falls to a film, leaving a good bit of lace behind. The aroma is interesting. There is a very floral hop to it, with a light tropical fruit. There is a slight grassiness and a light malt backbone. It’s pretty good. The flavor is very similar. There is a strong floral hop and grassiness to it with a light maltiness and a decent tropical fruit addition. The mouth feel is a little heavy for an IPA and the carbonation doesn’t help. The aftertaste is grassy and floral with a light fruitiness and malt finish. Not my favorite Hill Farmstead IPA, but it’s a good brew.

Growler from brewery. Pours slightly hazy straw with some frothy head and lots of clumpy lacing. Nose is floral and juicy citrus. Taste of bright citrus, grapefruit, some lemon. Taste medium bitter, light/medium sweet. Full sticky body with lively carbonation and lasting bitterness. So nice.

SG111 (1268) - New York, USA - JUN 29, 2016
UPDATED: JUN 29, 2016 Tap at Hops Hill, Brooklyn. Pours hazy pale yellow, big fluffy white head. Aroma is tangerine, peach, mango, really bright and aromatic citrus notes, pine, floral notes, lemon, orange. Some mild dank notes as it warms and bit of grass. Flavor is pine, peach, orange rind (that?s prominent), floral, lemon. Really nice. Bitter piney finish. Pleasant mouthfeel, nice effervescence, I wouldn?t mind less (ala Maine Beer Co style light carbonation) but still quite nice.

750ml growler. Hazy golden yellow with a frothy white head. Flavors are sweet cereals, grapefruit, melon, lime zest and garlic with dank and grassy notes. Medium body, moderate carbonation, smooth texture.

Mep3222 (1273) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - APR 19, 2016
Lemon citrusy hoppy aroma with a grapefruit almost sour aroma. Very nice. Taste adds in a resinous piney hop which goes all the way to the finish. Balanced nice ipa, piney dominates the hop profile though. Light palate, strong piney hops but still easy drinking. Well made ipa, would like less piney but so well made I can’t knock the rating much due to that. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mansquito (5343) - Nueva York, New York, USA - APR 17, 2016
Mekelburg,s, Brooklyn tap: pours hazy orange yellow with a white head. Aroma is lemony citrus, biscuit, other tropical fruits, and maybe a hint of flowers. Taste is not very bitter. Does not seem like a really hefty IPA. Nice dry fruitiness. Nice light finish. Pretty splendid.

Pas ma préférée de Shaun Hill. On remarque d’entrée de jeu une belle couleur jaune vivante, qui la diffère des grandes IPA vermontoise tirant plus sur le orangé. En bouche, c’est assez amer, c’est assez citronnée. C’est assez mince comme liquide, ça manque de profondeur. Content de l’avoir essayer, mais c’est pas le genre de liquide que je reprendrai un growler lors de mes prochaines visites à Greensboro.

10 oz. draft at RR. Pours cloudy with moderate foam that leaves nice lace. Aroma is lime rind, pale malt, and mild biscuits. Taste is similar with a nice mouth feel, and bergamot finish. One elegant beer.
