Hazy gold gold. Aroma slight grassy hops. Tastes funky deep hops. Dusty and dry. Hill farmstead at their best - doing a pale ale.

Growler. Pours a hazy light golden with a small white head that leaves really nice lacing. Nose is of weed, citrus, tropical fruits and pine. Taste is lightly bitter and not quite sweet, offers some white grapes , tropical fruits and dankness. Body is light to medium, carbonation moderate and mouthfeel a tiny bit oily. Incredibly drinkable. Overall a really nice pale ale by HFS again! I could drink that again, and again and again...

This really get straight to business it’s all about the hops. A hazy lemonade color beer with a constant slight head. When I had the 2oz sample at the brewery I swore I was getting a big pizza spice aroma. Not really getting that anymore. It’s fresh green citrus hop aromatics the taste is similiar and very dry and easily palatable. Not my favorite hill farmstead but still solid.

A hazed golden ale with a thick frothy lacing white head. In aroma, nice biscuit malt with fragrant nelson Sauvin hops, light grapefruit, pleasant. In mouth, a nice sweet fruity biscuit malt with grassy floral hops, Nelson Sauvin, well done. On tap at Hen of the woods.

Fresh grower from today. Looks beautiful going into the coffee cup my motel kindly provided while I am on the road. Smells a touch sweet, kind of an artificial white wine aroma with dank notes. Taste is wonderful. Some light initial sweetness up from, but a clean bitterness takes over and lingers. Medium bodied, average carbonation, a touch soft.

Arômes de fruits sucrés: fruit de la passion, melon d’eau et orange et ce parfum de fraicheur dont seul HF a le secret. En bouche, on a droit a une brève explosion de fruit. Brève car un goût amer et sec envahit rapidement le palais et s’étire longuement vers la finale. Je crois que cette bière se déguste et s’apprécie mieux pendant une chaude journée de juillet que pendant un journée pluvieuse d’octobre comme je l’ai fait,

Bomber, courtesy of a kind soul... shared in a location remote of my dining room back in late October.
Pours a very hazy pale blonde with a good head and nice lacing on the glass.

The aroma is impossibly melony with a bit of white grape and some citrus. Very bright, very appetizing, pungent, dank, generally a very nice complexity for a single hop aroma.

The flavor is lightly bitter but nicely balanced. It’s got lots of fresh bright hoppiness, some citrus rind and a bunch of melon. It’s pretty dry all around but the fruitiness from the hops keeps it from coming off as "too" dry.

Just terribly drinkable.
