Tap at Farmhouse Tap & Grill. It pours cloudy gold with a decent white head. The nose is soft, juicy, fragrant, tropical fruits, grass and cracker. The taste is crisp, bitter, clean, minerals, grassy, grapefruit rind, pithy lemon and pine with a dry finish. Light - medium body and fine, foamy carbonation. Crisp, clean and crushable. Not big and showy, just very well-made and sessionable.

Pours from a swingtop bottle a bright yellow-gold color with a thin white head that burns away steadily to an outer ring. Sparse rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, hops and bready malt. Light-bodied with flavors of grassy hops, citrus and biscuit malt. The finish is mildly bitter with a lingering hoppy aftertaste. Well-executed low-ABV Pale all around.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Growler... Hazy light-golden ale with a small, creamy, white head. Decent retention. The bouquet is a medley of fruity, earthy, floral hops. Light to medium-bodied with dancing carbonation. The flavor is of lightly bitter, ultra-flavorful hops, a gentle kiss of acidity and virtually no sweetness. Finishes tangy with a diminutive splash of dry white wine. Growler courtesy of the always generous landhoney! Seth’s a player and this is a kick ass blonde ale. A tip of the cap to Shaun and John for knowing their way around a brewery.

UPDATED: JUL 20, 2013 Growler @ Dan’s house. Thanks Stephen! Hazy, whitish yellow appearance with a white head. A bit spicy, floral, herbal, light veggie, a touch fruity aroma. Slightly chewy, a bit dank, floral, grassy flavor. One of my least favorites from HF.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
750mL flip-top big thanks to Ed5388. Beautiful glowing peach pour with rocky, meringue foam. Nose is beautiful sweet cream butter (Hill Farmstead house yeast), soft butterscotch, peaches&cream ice cream, juicy cantaloupe, whipped cream. As it warms, a flash of exotic/pithy tropical melon comes through (Motueka I assume). Taste is juicy, rich butterscotch is a flavor but not a density. Floats on the tongue with mega buoyancy. Super soft bitterness is not the main character here- juicy hops and tropical fruit are 90% with the remaining a soft bitterness. Soft and refreshing rather than abusive. Slick, soft butteriness on the palate is exactly what I am after. A big improvement over tannic astringency or chemical soap. Exactly the APA I was hoping this would be and much more. A perfect hop combo of some of my favorites, especially Amarillo. Wow. This is the entire purpose of the APA style- delicacy, bright hoppiness, refreshing body unlike IPAs which are bitter for no reason and heavy in mouthfeel. This is the session beer we all should be demanding. I will be dreaming of this beer.
