3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
From 750 ml growler on April 27th. Hazy gold pour with thin white head. Typical Hill Farmstead know-how, great balance of resinous piney hops and lots of citrus to pair, smells fresh and refreshing. Very crisp flavor, lots of citrus, balanced bitterness. Palate is maybe the weak point, a bit oily/soapy, feels stronger than 6%. Still very enjoyable.

Growler at home with friends. Pour is beautiful hazy orange creamsicle with a fluffy white head and great lacing. Deep citric undertones, grapefruit juice, orange peel, super fruity, light grass, straw, biscuity aroma - super fresh squeezed juice. Taste is big citrus, grapefruit juice, so fresh, light weed, lemon peel, zesty, somewhat doughy, piny, somewhat pithy, and a touch earthy with a medium bitter finish. Full mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Another winner from HF.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bouteille réutilisable 750ml avec swing-top achetée au fût sur place à Greensboro. Une belle trouvaille signée slovaksniper. Bue le jour même à Longueuil. Liquide jaune avec une mousse durable collante sur les parois. Le nez est tout en citron, en malt blond. Ça sent bon ! La bouche est un peu acide, sur le citron, c’est piquant sur le bout de la langue. Il y a une sorte de goût de maïs en crème dans cette bouche. Il y a aussi du pamplemousse et une finale sur les agrumes. Très près de la single hop Citra.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours from a swingtop bottle a slightly cloudy orange color with a medium thick and foamy white head that recedes slowly. Rings of lacing on the glass. Citrus, hops and pine in the nose. Light, crisp body with flavors of citrusy hops, toasted malt and herbs. The finish is fruity with a lingering pineapple and hops aftertaste. Another winner from this brewery.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours and tastes like most any other HF hoppy beer; which is to say awesome. Hazed dark amber orange with a frothy off white head, medium full well carbonated body. Citrus resin and juice aroma and nose, with a pithy and pulpy texture, mild grain and spice in the finish. Think I prefer Tired Hands The Light That Spills... but when I’m splitting hairs between these two beers I’m clearly the winner...

Overall amazingly drinkable clean soft and fantastic pale ale. Lots of stone fruit and orange flavor with a very light bitterness that is reminiscent of orange zest. Light herbal grassyness and a clean quaffable finish.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap @ The Reservoir and from a growler brought back from HF and drank the day after filling. Hazy yellow/straw with a small white head and heavy lacing. Aroma is of juicy hops...intense citrus and tropical fruits along with resinous notes. Taste is also of intense citrus (grapefruits, pineapple), tropical fruits along with some resinous notes and a subtle earthy presence. Medium body. Moderately dry finish. I’m not as high on this one as many other, but it’s superb sessionable/drinkable IPA. Well done.
