From tap at the brewery. Pours dark brown with a creamy, dense and tan head. Aroma is solid hoppy with a dark roasted malt in addition. Bone dry, breadish and dark roasted malty. Bitter and citrusy finish. Lingering hoppy and dry finish. Nice.

Leighton (18222) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 28, 2016
Growler from the brewery. Pours deep brown with a hefty, frothy mocha head. Great snout, with some burnt pine, cocoa and lightly charred brown bread. Medium sweet flavor with notes of silky chocolate, moderate burnt earth, pine, floral hops, orange rind and a little grapefruit. Medium bodied with fine, massaging carbonation. Finishes with burnt sugars, more toast, bittersweet baking cocoa, burnt brown bread, light resinous pine, more floral notes, grassy and rindy citrus bitterness. An excellent CDA from top to bottom.

mcberko (14059) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 24, 2012
750mL growler, sent from Glouglouburp (thanks Dany!), pours black with a medium beige head. Aroma of lots of roasted malt mixed with citrusy and piney hops, maybe a slight wheat quality, but it smells typical of a black IPA. Flavour is like a wheat version of a black IPA, with roasted malt and citrus hops, overlaid with wheat / hay and some rye somehow without muting the roasty / hoppy notes. Finishes with a rye finish. Wouldn’t have thought this concept would be too great, but count on Hill Farmstead to exceed your expectations.

Growler shared. Pours very dark brown with a medium tan head. Aroma of grassy hops, grapefruit, dank hops and light roast notes. Far more forward on the IPA side. Flavour is light moderate sweet and over moderate bitter. Medium bodied with light carbonation.

Fliptop shared by Kan. Pours a near clear deep brown with a grayish brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a combination of roast malts, coffee and pine hops. Flavor has a good amount of pine hops that is backed by a bit of roast and dark grains.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - JAN 31, 2013
750mL flip-top growler big thanks to yourefragile! Dark sepia pour, clearish. Thick mocha head erupts. Sheen, rocky retention. Big swathes of lace. Nose is soft, peaty, some spicy melon like chili powder rubbed pomelo (Thai snack),chocolate milkshake. Taste is light bodied like a 5% oatmeal stout, bitter, roasty, coffee heavy, some light soil and earthiness. Palate is lighter, bitter, easy to drink than expected. As it warms, it really gains some silkiness, mild alcohol warming, fudge, ganache. Palate really improves density at warm temperatures. Really nice improvement. Goes from a 3.7 to a 3.9 for me. Delicious but delicate, could easily be under appreciated if you don’t let it warm up and see how it evolves. I really liked it, especially how it is sessionable at 6.5%. Well done.

Draft at Capone’s. Poured dark brown with tan head. Nose was black patent roasty malt, resiny hops, rye. Tasted patent malty, with a big piney and citric hop presence, and some piney roastiness in the finish.
