4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tasted on 7/11/13 from a 32oz growler obtained in a trade. Pours hazy, bright orange with a thick, fluffy white head that slowly recedes to rocky and messy lace. The nose is super fresh with tons of citrus, pine resin, and a hint of tropical fruit, with just enough light bread malt to back everything up. The flavor is almost exactly the same, with the resin, citrus peel, and tropical fruit the focus, and just enough balancing bread malt. The body is medium with average carbonation and a long super balanced hoppy finish. This is perhaps the most balanced double IPA have had, with every element melding perfectly.

UPDATED: OCT 4, 2016 Pours a hazy reddish orange color with a foam head that laces my glass. The aroma is of citrus, floral, and earthy hops. I noticed notes of straw and sweet malted grains behind the hop scents. Tasting I enjoyed the mild bitterness that creeps up and lightly lingers into the finish of this beer. The flavor is balanced very well. The sweetness blends well with the bitterness. There was a good earthy hop and citrus flavors. Overall this was a very good drinkable and flavorful beverage.

Tap into a goblet showing unfiltered opaque orange with a finger of clean white foam.
The nose shows intense and juicy sweet blood oranges with a light citric edge.
The palate is full bodied and smooth but fully carbonated. Flavors of concentrated orange, grapefruit, and light kiwi. Mid-palate shows a subtle grainy malt edge but mostly fruit. Strong grapefruit bitterness with a big grainy malt aftertaste. A big IIPA.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Une robe brouillée superbe comme toutes les IPA de Hill Farmstead. Le nez est rempli de fruits tropicaux, d’orange et d’un côté floral tout à fait inspirant. Des notes d’ananas, d’orange, de cantaloup, de melon miel et de fruits de la passion. Une finale composée d’une touche sucrés et d’amertume franche mais pas du tout envahissante. Une douceur en bouche et des saveurs si rafraîchissantes.
