6oz pour at Farmhouse Tap and Grill in Burlington. Hazy orange with thin lacing white head. Nose is both musty and juicy, fresh orange peel, orange juice, grapefruit juice, pine tar, pine needles, soap. Flavor is almost exactly the same, grapefruit zest, orange juice, dried pine tar, meyer lemon, lime zest. Dry, lightly bitter, refreshing finish. Superb.

This poured a light orange color with an off white head. Aroma was citrus, light grain, some grass, and some earthy notes. Flavor was much the same, very well balanced between juicy hops and light grain. Great example of the style.

UPDATED: DEC 20, 2013 Sampled at the brewery. Pours cloudy golden. A lot of hops and some malts. Flavor of a lot of citrus and bitter hops. Average texture. A great pale ale. Edit: Many, many growler pours after the original sample. This is the best pale ale in existence.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Dark gold and hazy. Huge thick off white head. Stunning appearance. Oranges, fresh cut grass, and slight earthy/piney aroma. Flavor starts out with oranges, light bready malt, lemon, grapefruit, resin. Ends crisp, dry and bitter. Medium carbonation and medium to light body. Awesome lacing down the glass. This APA is a true masterpiece.

Poured from a 20L keg in my garage into HF glassware. A nice opaque glowing orange color with a one finger head. Scent is floral orangy citrus with a slight hay/farmyard hint, really fantastic. Taste is tons of citrus with a nice hop bitterness on the finish. This is the beer that changed my life when it comes to craft beers... really a fantastic APA

Thanks to Turd for sharing! Another superb, richly flavorful, and impressively balanced pale from HF. Nice deep orange pour, medium cloudy, with a generous head. Nose is massively floral, with a slight sharpness to it. Full, vibrant mouthfeel with a touch of a dry finish. Some more hop leaf and resin in the taste, green and fresh, but not at the expense of the modest fruitiness. Excellent stuff overall.
