4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Poured from growler picked up at brewery into snifter. Clear orange body with healthy amount of head. Smells of citrus, slight earth tones and hops. Difficult to describe the taste, with a lot of hop flavors, bitterness from the hops, but balanced. Such an enigma. I wish this taste would stay in my mouth for hours. What a great beer, well worth the trip.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
From 0.75 l growler in tulip. Pours a cloudy orange with a perfect off white head. Huge flowery nose with tropical fruits. Mango and passion fruit. Lots of pine notes too. Taste is full bodied with a burst of citrus and pine hops. Grain, caramel and dough notes perfectly balance the hop bitterness kicking in towards the end. It has this unique Hill Farmstead barnyard touch too. Could drink it every day! Silky moutfeel! Perfect DIPA!

T: Pineapples, apricots, mango, pine grains in the back, caramel malts with just a little bit of alcohol in the back. M: Medium body, soft carbonation with almost no bitterness. O: Not bad, which the alcohol was hidden better but it is still hoppy and well done.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap @ MIkkeller & Friends. Pours copper amber with a white head. Aroma is DIPA hop forward with lots of tropical notes. I get lots of mandarin, orange, grapefruit, peach and some pine. Also a decent malty backbone. Smells pretty bold and has some nice deep DIPA nuances. Taste is fresh hop forward with lots of ripe peach, orange, weak resin, mandarin, weak caramel malts and a slight minty note to it as well. Almost everything you want from a double IPA. Really pleasing and amazing!

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pouring at the opening of Hill Farmstead. Had this both on draught and cask and while the draught was good, the cask was just phenomal and I went back to it 4 or 5 times once it was tapped. Just great stuff. Pours a nice clear amber on draft, and a little more haze on the cask version, big creamy white head. Large pine and soft citrus, which on cask is just blown away by the dripping passion fruit and piles of tropical fruit. Medium bodied, smooth malt. Cask picks up a light sweetness with some pineapple tones. Smooth long grapefruit finish.
