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.

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.

On tap at Prohibition Pig. Pours a hazed glowing gold with a medium sized white head. Crisp musk, light dusty hops. Hoppy up front, musk, soft wheat. Soft and gentle, light musk into hops, dusty. Lovely session beer, could drink this all day. Gently musk and a light hop bitterness on the finish.

djd07 (9533) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUL 6, 2014
Growler thanks to Seth. Pours a cloudy yellow with small frothy white head. The aroma is strong pine, resin hop. Thin mouthfeel with nice light bitter hop, and a bit watery and easy to drink, very impressive.

First tasted at the brewery while waiting in line for growler fills, then shared less than 72 hrs after purchase with my lovely wife over a meal of pesto-prawn salad. Bright, translucent, lemony yellow with a sudsy white head that leaves heavy rings of lace down the glass. Aroma is freshness in a glass-- delicate fresh hops that display characteristics in equal proportion of both crisp, green grassy notes and ripe rind of citrus. Light, biscuit malts support a vibrant but delicate hoppy body, notes of carrot tops, kumquat, guava, and honeydew, leading to a crisp finish of just-right balancing bitterness. The hype is true; this is magical stuff.

arminjewell (9237) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - SEP 5, 2012
Pour out of growler, thanks Steve! Nice hazy yellow orange pour with white head, aroma has notes of grass, pine, biscuit, some nice grapefruit, lemon, touch of pineapple, slight grass and floral notes. Taste is a mix of lemon grass, some biscuit, bread, hints of pineapple, mango, some slight orange and grapefruit peel, finishing fairly bitter, drinkable, really nice beer.

KyotoLefty (9040) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 15, 2012
Draught at the Festival of Farmhouse Ales. Pale orange-yellow. Cloudy, with a low but thick head. Aroma of grapefruit, peach, Simcoe and Amarillo? Biscuity malt and honey. Big peach flavor, some orange, a little grapefruit and grass, and then some sweet bready and biscuity malts. No caramel at all. Would like to have this on tap in my kitchen.

b3shine (7965) - Indiana, USA - MAY 6, 2016
750 ml swing top to pint from Hill Farmstead, filled 5/3 and enjoyed today (stamped best consumed by 5/11). Looks good for the style; a somewhat hazy lemony pineapple with foamy white head. Smells and tastes of fruity and bitter hops with a pleasantly bitter but clean medium light-bodied mouthfeel. Tasty and sessionable.

Desverger (7722) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 18, 2016
Tap@Hill Farmstead Day, Warpigs, Copenhagen (12/05/2016) - medium hazy golden coloured pour with white head. Aroma and taste is a mix of tropical and citrus fruits, medium pale malts, peachy with some grapefruit, satsuma and lemon fruity citrus, refreshing and highly enjoyable sipa.
