750ml growler. Pours a cloudy straw color with thick fluffy white head. Aroma of potent tropical fruits and citrus. Taste is full of citrus bitterness. Lemon, orange, pineapple, and grapefruit. Some pine and a slightly spicy aftertaste. My first offering from Hill Farmstead and I'm very pleased! Definitely worth the hype.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cloudy/hazy golden pour with a nice orange tint and a thin ring of white head, light sticky lacing ... aroma of grapefruits, light lemon and light sugar with a rindy and resiny hop quality as well .... mouthfeel is bitter and taste is of grapefruit and citrusy rinds, light lemon, little sugary, mango and light malts on the back end along with a nice bitter bite that continues in to a dry hoppy finish .... I’d say its pliny the elderish minus the piney qualities ... the abv is hidden so amazingly well .... very dangerous, fresh and sessionable

on draft at Capones. Pours a slightly cloudy orange vistalite with a medium sized frosty white head. Aroma of freshly squeezed grapefruit, malted barley, tons of hops and light tropical notes. Taste is much the same as the aroma with a hint of tangerine citrus and lemon.

aged fruit old ale is what i got from this one. full and smooth but not dense in the body perhaps a little oil which killed the head. nice hop quality trying to compete but winning in the aroma. a bit rummy.brandy look to it.

Growler from kfarrell7, thanks Kristin. Unclear yellow body with a medium white head. Tropical fruit, pine needles, grass, pineapple, grapefruit, hops, light alcohol. Yet again Hill Farmstead blow me away. This must be the best brewery in the world.

Clear red-orange pour. Nose holds huge sweet caramel, candied orange, and some surprisingly breadiness. The flavor hearkens more to what I was expecting with awesome notes of sweet sap, green sapling, caramel, and earthy hops. The palate hides the 10% exceptionally well, and the sweetness dries out a touch to a massive resin character. Overall, very very good.

Bottle as part of the Hickster Bimble day, huge thanks for the pour. Pours a lemon straw colour with a white head. Lovely funky veg, fruity aroma. Medium to full body, medium carb. Boozy, very slightly harsh, with light veg, very light caramel, pine, sap, light wood, grapefruit, marmalade. Yes, tasty!

Big thanks to Dany for a ridiculously generous trade that allowed me to share this along side Abner with the Ottawa crew. Cloudy vibrant but somewhat pale yellow with a generous foamy white head. Wet fresh hops, smooth, some farmhouse funk, can’t get over how finely balanced all the hop flavours are - would gladly drink this every day. Moderate carbonation, smooth with a full body, long finish that keeps on giving.
