Citrus and pine. Wonderful hazy color in the glass. Mouthfeel is light and tangy. It’s an IPA with an APA label.

Pale hazy golden orange with head and lace. Medium fruity orange creamsicle sweetness with medium spicy grassy fresh bitterness. Fresh orangy hop aroma. Nice refreshing medium light body. Excellent pale ale.

poured from a growler filled at the brewery, this pale ale is best fresth, even one day after first opening the growler, the taste starts to deteriorate. It pours cloudy yellow with a nice head, and has subtle hints of citrus hops, though much less so than the IPA’s brewed at Hill Farmstead. Next trip back, I probably won’t buy this, their IPA’s are too good to pass up!

Such a quality pale ale. Very light aroma, sweet initial taste and great after taste of citrus-y hops. Very well balanced.

Fresh growler from Joe. HUGE thanks! Shared with Pops. Pours slightly hazy golden color with a small fluffy white head. Beautiful aroma of fresh hop pellets, grass, hay, lightly sweet malts, very light citrus peel. Incredibly light bodied and fresh hops, sweet citrus and malt finish. Super easy drinking, medium carbonation, crisp and clean finish. Just awesome. My first HF experience and it is an excellent one.

Beautiful full yellow color, strong pine and citrus aromas. Very outdoorsy fresh taste... like you’re eating an orange and a lemon while walking in a pine forest.

Sampled from bottle @ CBC 2014, thanks to whoever brought this. Hazy a bit pale yellow color, small white head. Quite hoppy aroma. Taste is lightly hoppy, lightly bitter, fruitiness of peach, grapefruit and nicely refreshing. A bit thin texture, but a decent body and suitable carbonation.
