Draft. Glowing orange with little head. Aroma doesn’t propel much but gives off some sweet malt and peach noted. Taste adds tea leaves, light citrus and pine. Very delicate mouthfeel. Excellent.

Growler: Thanks, Alex. Cloudy, dense, basically opaque sunburst & burnt orange color with a soapy, sudsy eggshell head that foams up nicely & leaves lots of sticky wet webs of lacing all along the glass. Lovely aroma of wet pine, grapefruit peel, under-ripe pineapple, bitter tangerine, herbal grass, faint hints of green onion, & an underlying tropical essence, maybe a bit of mango or even passion fruit. Lightly dank & oily. Flavor is more pine heavy with lots of alpha hop oil, resin, & sticky wet grass. Dry cracker malts, dough, bitter citrus peel, pineapple, grapefruit pith... Bitter without being abrasive. Not sweet at all. Pretty light on the palate, crisp & dry in the finish. Crazy drinkability. Could slam this indefinitely.

On tap at The Farmhouse in Burlington. Pours a nice clear golden-yellow. 2 finger white head that last nearly the entire time I drank it. Aromas are light, but pleasant floral hops, light citrus zest and light malt sweetness. Taste is unadventurous compared to some of the other HF pales, but crisp and clean none the less. Floral hops with light citrus zest, just as the nose suggests. Mouthfeel is soft, mild bitter punch in the finish, but extremely clean. Good stuff.

On tap at Farmhouse Tap & Grill (Burlington). Pours hazy peach-amber with thick white head and some lacing. Aroma is a great mix of citrus, floral notes, hops and pines. Taste features a strong (and well balancd) citrus bitterness. Dry finish and long lasting bitter aftertaste. Medium to full bodied. Silky feeling. Among the best of its kind.

On tap in Burlington. Pours a orange, darker than Harlan. Aroma is very light, could use more. Taste is light, dry, hoppy, citrus, not overly bitter. Another easy drinking beer. Very nice pale ale.

750 growler, filled 6 days ago, thanks Dany. Cloudy dim yellow. Aroma is unsweetened grapefruit and citrus. Taste is very light grapefruit and orange juice pulp. Super clean finish with no lingering flavors. Sort of similar to the other HF IPAs in that the flavor is really good but very soft and no bitterness. And this is the lightest one I’ve had so it’s even more gentile. This would be a great session beer. Too bad I can’t slam a six pack as opposed to drinking 1/4 of a 750.
