Growler from the brewery. Pours cloudy gold with a foamy white head. Tons of rich citrus in the nose, orange, grapefruit, mango, melon. Medium to big sweet flavor, some lightly bready pale malts, hints of tangy lemon, more pithy orange and grapefruit. Medium to full bodied with fine, massaging carbonation. Light sticky and pithy citrus fruits in the finish, melon, tangerine, grapefruit, orange. Delicious stuff. Rich and well balanced.

Growler thanks to my man, Corey! Hazy orange pour with a frothy white head that leaves layers of lace. Massive, bright tropical citrus, grapefruit, pineapple aroma coming out of the growler before I even pour it and it just grows as it’s being poured. Flavor is juicy citrus throughout with great balance without being noticeably sweet. Clean, medium bodied and a bitter finish. Absolutely fantastic.

This beer is not quite as complex as the Abner or Heady Topper but my gawd it’s delicious. If you like citrus tasting IPA’s then you may find this one to be the best you’ve ever had!

Pours a cloudy yellow with a medium white head that leaves good lacing... the classic Hill Farmstead looks I must say. Aroma is dank and piney, really potent. Taste is a fine balance between sweet and bitter. Medium bodied, good carb for an "old" growler. Great!

Growler 750mL. Merci Sam! Dorée trouble. Nez intense et superbe de zeste de citron et pamplemousse blanc. Bouche longue sur le pamplemousse blanc et les fruits tropicaux. Astringente en finale. Superbe!

Growler courtesy of Cparles.
Poured a hazy orange with a whisp of cloudy head.
Smell is everything I could imagine wanting a DIPA to smell like. Orange pith and grapefruit.
Taste was citrusy,lots of sticky piney hops with a spicy after note. Refreshing and refined. One of the top DIPA ive had from HF or anybody

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 ml growler. Huge thanks to Tom again! Pours a cloudy gold color with a medium foamy head that fades nicely to a ring. Leaves some nice oily lacing, I always love the appearance of HF beers. Aroma is an assault of citra hops, more than any other citra IPA I’ve had. Light mustiness with oranges, grapefruit, lime, and tropical fruit. Tastes like chewing on citra hops, so much citrus and tropical fruit. Very light sweetness and moderate bitterness. Smooth and oily. Another awesome DIPA from HF but I still think I like Abner and Ephraim better.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
En fût et growler de 750 ml. Arômes frais et fruités de houblons américains (pamplemousse rose, orange confite, ananas). Robe orangée et trouble, légère dentelle, effervescence moyenne et texture très veloutée. En bouche, le houblonnage se montre remarquablement frais et fruité, portant surtout sur des notes d’agrumes. Le malt est velouté sans être sucré. Légère présence d’alcool en finale et amertume assez délicate pour le style. Une merveilleuse DIPA, qui n’a cependant pas la complexité de leur Abner.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
From 10/25 notes. 750ml growler purchased at the brewery 10/23, drank two days later. Pours hazy yellow gold with 1 finger head. Nose is citrus aromas that blend together, some lemon, lime, grassy notes. Mouthfeel is rich, malty with a good balance of carbonation. Taste is big lemon, orange, very hoppy but balanced, some fruit, apricot, some faint pine, wheat, restrained. Finish is clean bitterness with sweet doughy honey notes, some citrus notes, complex. Wonderful.
