jkwood04 (3850) - Connecticut, USA - APR 22, 2013
On tap in a tulip at the brewery. Pours cloudy golden with a white head. Aroma of citrusy and floral hops, some pale, caramel and grainy malts, and a little dough. Flavor the same, with a nice hoppiness but something about the grains seemed slightly off. Average texture. A good beer but not the standard HF greatness.

On tap at Capone's in Norristown, PA. Tasted after Blind Pig and the Plinys. Step above Blind Pig, but a step below the Elder.

SlovakSniper (3092) - Candiac/Frelighsburg, Quebec, CANADA - APR 18, 2013
En fût sur place. Une belle robe voilée et dorée. Une tête bien tenace. Une superbe dentelle. Rien d’étonnant que cette présentation soit si parfaite. Un nez intense, houblonné pour me plaire, avec des notes fruitées, des herbes épicées et des vapeurs de conifère. Un malt qui se dépose comme une fine couche mielleuse. Sur les papilles, un jeu céréalier plus marqué parmi cette représentation houblonnée efficace, fraîche et même envoûtante. Des agrumes, de la résine et autres choses amèrement savoureuses. En bouche, un corps construit autour du concept de la buvabilité. En finale, des herbes et de la résine bien senties et très asséchantes. Un coup de cœur.

obguthr (3754) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - APR 7, 2013
Growler: Lilly and grapefruit nose. Cloudy yellow, greenish head, thick head. Lilly flavor, lemongrass finish. Fizzy. Not brewery fresh, but if it was I’d say it is overrated.

italarican (1481) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - APR 1, 2013
Sample from the brewery. Pours a clear matte canary. Medium pineapple and grapefruit presence. Lots of fruity rind. Subtle but very delicious.

ThirstyBird (1506) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - MAR 30, 2013
Tasted on tap at the Blackback Pub. Appears light honey color with a nice white head. Smell is a big citrus and tropical fruit nose. Taste is great citrus - a lot of grapefruit, some nice malr sweetness in the middle and ending crisp and very slightly bitter. Light body with elegant carbonation. So damn good...as always!

czar (4264) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 25, 2013
growler. hazy, almost cloudy, pale yellow with a very nice white head, very good retention and lacing. citrusy floralness, few pine notes, crisp and clean malts, tropical fruitiness. short to medium long herbal-grassy and citrusy finish, average carbonation, light body. refreshing, a tad harsh in the finish, very well executed again. i still prefer edward..

50belair (2210) - Florida, USA - MAR 18, 2013
Growler shared by Seth. Murky yellow pour with a white head. Grapefruit and pine aromas. Big grapefruit and piney hop notes. A little unbalanced, but not in a bad way with just enough malts to keep it enjoyable. Very nice mouthfeel with good carbonation. A fantastic IPA..

750mL growler, sent from Glouglouburp (thanks a lot, Dany!), pours a cloudy golden yellow with a lingering medium white head. Classic Hill Farmstead aromatics, with loads of fresh floral hops, citrus zest, a little bit of farmhouse notes, and a big biscuity malt backing. Flavour is even more intense, with monolithic floral hops, dry grass and citrus coating the tongue; there is some biscuity malt providing solid support without ever interfering - no malt flavour at all really. The meadow-fresh floral notes absolutely engulf the palate, with a pronounced astringency. Very dry palate - one of HF’s driest. Gorgeous blonde IPA from the masters.
