Growler, consumed 2 days after its purchase. Hazy blond-orange pour and sick lacing. Aroma is dank hops, tangerine, honey, graham crackers and grass. Taste is deep citrus, bready malts and heavy grassy bitterness and flowers. Alcool is perceptible. I’ve had better sample than this one, will have to revisit. Still a very good beer.

Hazy yellow/orange pour. White head. Aromas of citrus, mango, life vegetal qualities. Taste is pretty darn balanced. Light hop bitterness but not much to speak of. Taste was refreshing and lived up to expectations. Looking forward to the next sip, cleans up nicely.

from a growler filled at the brewery, this is the best of the IPA’s currently available there: it has a sweet citrus aroma, lemon & grapefruit & pine resin hop flavor on a well crafted malt backbone, a crisp, boozy mouthfeel and a slightly bittersweet aftertaste. It pours hazy dark yellow, unfiltered (as all the Hill Farmstead IPA’s are) with a thin head that quickly dissipates. I may buy only Abner next time I visit Hill Farmstead!

4/VII/14 - 75cl swing top bottle @ De Hopduvel (Gent) - BB: 1/VII/14 (2014-693) Thanks to Bobochamp for sharing the bottle!
Clear deep blond beer, small aery off-white head, little stable, non adhesive. Aroma: lots of pineapple, citrus, grapefruit, some lychee, little tiny cheesy touch. MF: soft carbon, full body. taste: Wow! Very fruity start, lots of pineapple, some passion fruit, grapefruit, mango, then citrus and pretty bitter when swallowing. Aftertaste: very bitter, bit of an alcohol burn, resinous, lots of grapefruit, hoppy, little sweet touch that is easily overpowered by the piny bitterness. Lovely beer!

Growler. Hazy glowing gold/orange. Taste and aroma are floral with strong apricot and mango notes. Great mineral aspect to the finish. Dry crackly mouthfeel with a short finish. Incredible.
