daknole (10112) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAR 30, 2014
Lightly cloudy gold pour, white head. Delicious piney hips up front then lead into a citrus zest flavor with a slight backbone of malt. As usually, supremely drinkable.

JulienHuxley (4033) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 18, 2015
Hazy gold pour with lacy white head. Aroma is grassy, peppery leafy hop, light dank notes, fresh cut grass, bready malty notes, maltier than most Hill Farmstead hoppy ales. Taste is lightly bitter, grassy, with nice chewy malt flavor. Palate is med-light bodied with good carbonation. Good stuff.

En fût. Couleur jaune paille légèrement voilée, mousse blanche onctueuse laissant une légère dentelle. Arôme de citron, houblon fruité, malt. Goût de houblon résineux, citron, zeste de citron, malt. Carbonatation moyenne, corps moyen, texture habituelle de Hill Farmstead.

adnielsen (10028) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 28, 2015
Growler thanks to McBoost. Hazy yellow orange appearance with a white head. Aroma is very herbal and grassy, light spiciness, with some citrus fruit. Medium light body. Clean. Moderate low bitterness, low sweetness. Some orange citrus and light tropical fruit, but mostly herbal and clean. Not sure if the fruit faded en route to Colorado but I found this mostly herbal. Pretty good. Chuggable.

MacBoost (1474) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - APR 24, 2015
Fresh growler I bought from the brewery. Pours a medium shade gold with a white head. Aromas of straight up citrus fruit. Taste is semi dry and moderately bitter. Flavors consist of a beautifully woven tropical fruit explosion interwoven with bursts of sunshine, some blue spruce tree needles and light cracker malt. Like a drinkable Picasso. Mouthfeel and carbonation is spot on and the finish is citric and gently bitter. A work of art.

Drake (9999) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - MAR 13, 2015
Growler from the brewery, shared at a tasting. Pours a hazy orange with a large creamy tan head. Good head retention. Aroma of floral, tropical, citrus hops, crackery malt. The taste is tropical, citrus, grassy, piney hops, pale malt. Medium bodied, well balanced.

Small hf growler thanks to Adam. Pours a clear copper color with a large white head. A nice sweet fruity nose. Lemon, oranges, fresh citrus, bitter at times. A light sweet biscuit malt base.

jackl (5495) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - FEB 26, 2015
Growler thanks to Drake. Pours hazy gold with a prominent white head. Pretty strong orange peel accents on the nose. Mellow sugar cookie. Sea grass. General minerals and green biomass. Slightly pissy. Flavor is a bit more directly bitter than most HF IPAs I’ve tried. Bitter lemon and orange. Sweet cantaloupe. Just a touch of caramel. Dry grassy finish. Medium body, soft carbonation. Overall, not as delicate as some of their other offerings. Still good, however.

bytemesis (4267) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - FEB 16, 2015
Growler with thanks to BigKlip74! Pours hazy to cloudy golden amber with a medium creamy white head that mostly dissipates but leaves nice residual and lacing. Aroma is very citrus, with grapefruit and passionfruit as well as blood orange. Mineral water, just a bit of forest floor dankness. Flavor follows, light sweet to the point of dryness, light bitter, fruity and minerally, easy to drink. Medium body, standard creamy silky HF mouthfeel. Nice IPA.

hopscotch (10009) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - FEB 1, 2015
Growler... Pours hazy and golden with a small, creamy, white head. Decent retention. The aroma is of melons and peppery hops accompanied by a slap in the face with armpit muskiness. Light to medium-bodied and watery with jazzy carbonation. The flavor is fairly well-balanced, but leans a hair toward the bitter side of balance, as it should. There are bready and musky components as well. Finishes astringent, lightly bitter, and then dry. Growler provided by landhoney!
