Draft at Capone’s and Railroad Street. Pours very hazy dull gold with white head. Nose is pinet earthy malt, grapefruit and mango. Not a super vaporous nose, but a complex nose that sets the tone for what is to come. Tastes complex, silky smooth; one of the most velvety beers I have ever quaffed, with a nice piney resiny hop flavor, well balanced tropical fruit, including mango, tangerine, and papaya at mid-palate, and some black pepper at the finish. This one is sublime, and vastly underrated here. I call this one the Big Brother of Two Hearted.

Growler thanks to Rich. Pours super hazy as a usual hill farmstead. Nose is fruity hops, dankness, grass, citrus, noticeable caramels a touch catty. Flavor is similar to the aromas. Punchy bitterness on the finish and a crisp and just a touch of astringent hop flavors. Overally a good beer. aroma is superior.

Growler 750 mL, merci John! Au nez comme en bouche: houblon se rapprochant du pamplemousse blanc d’intensité moyenne à forte. Finale un peu sèche. Excellente.

MadRobin (1828) - Silver Spring, USA - FEB 12, 2013
On tap at Frieda's Taqueria & Grill in Stowe, VT. Served in Hill Farmstead goblet. Hazy, dense golden amber with orange overtones, a large off-white head and excellent lacing. Aroma of grapefruit, grass, pine, peach, mango, orange and caramel. Taste of grapefruit, peach, mango, pine, orange, grass and caramel. Medium body and high/medium carbonation. Overall, a brighter, crisper beer than Edward. Despite the brewery's description, I did not find it more aggressive than Edward. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

750 mL swingtop growler, thanks Brandon! Pours and smells like a HF IPA. Cloudy dark copper with a large off white head; nice retention and lacing. Pine and earthy aroma; mildly sweet and tons of hops with little malt. Flavor is dominated by citrus rind and pine with a light malt backbone. Medium thick with moderate carbonation. A little forgettable compared to most HF IPAs, but still an above average take on the style.

Growler shared by yourefragile. Thanks Michael. The beer appears lightly hazy, with ample effervescence and a small white head. The aroma offers oranges, orange rinds, citrus, various tropical fruits. Great flavor! Abundant citrus flavors. Easy to drink, I instantly want more. Hooray Hill Farmstead. Another terrific brew from one of America’s top breweries. I would drink this anytime. Would love to have this on draft at home. Serving type: growler Reviewed on: 12-18-2011
