4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Growler from Hill Farmstead. Pours a vibrant golden/orange color, two finger white head. Aromas how tropical fruits...mango/peach/tangerine...along with a citrus punch of orange/lemon. Taste has a nice initial blast of the hops bouquet, but the finish has a much more pronounced bitterness than I expected. A bit zesty with notes of alcohol peeking through. Still, a very solid offering.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap @ Beachwood Brewing. Hazed golden pour with a white head. The nose is super dank and citrus. Pineapple, some grapefruit rind, and orange marmalade. Super fragrant. Flavor is a touch on the sweet side, but does have a lot of pine bitterness. There’s a good fruity pineapple and peach note. Fairly resinous finish. Pretty juicy.

Growler @ Another Tasting, courtesy of kermis. Thnx for sharing dude! Pours a hazy golden beer with a nice, medium sized white head on top. Aroma is Citra all over.. massive citrus influences, obviously, that’s basically all I’m getting. This beer smells exactly how it’s supposed to be. Flavor is very nice bitter, loads of citric bitterness going on, grapefruits, lemon. Amazing well balanced, great stuff from Hill Farmstead. Very well!!

Fresh growler shared at Another Tasting. Pours very hazy dull golden orange with an off white head. Aroma is super dank, massive citra as expected, I’m getting massive melons from this. Flavor is light to moderate sweet and over moderate bitter. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Superb!

Growler from the brewery. This beer is up there with the best DIPAs I have ever had. Pours a cloudy right orange with a slight reddish tinge to it. Fluffy white head. Aromas of orange, tropical fruits, and pretty significant doses of cantelope. Very melony. Taste was slight bitterness, soft finish. Super drinkable. Juicy.

Holy citrus! And as dank as can be. Upon opening the growler there is a pungent aroma of grapefruit/citrus and hops. The pungent smell is followed right up with the taste. This beer rivals them all and in my personal opinion beats out my long time favorite heady topper.
