Thanks to tderoeck! Pours a hazy yellow orange color with a tight white cap. The smell is grapefruit and tropical fruit. The taste is red on grapefruit initially with some softer tropical fruit notes coming in later with a touch of honey sweetness, ending dry and somewhat bitter. On the light side of medium with the typical Hill Farmstead wonderfully fine, elegant carbonation. Great stuff!

On tap during DLD 2014. Pours a cloudy yellow orange with a white head. Aroma came across like a fart laden grapefruit at first. Kind of light on the hop aroma. The taste is light and on the bitter side of balanced. Not as amazing as people make it out to be. KingSue was the star of the show that day.

UPDATED: AUG 30, 2014 75cl growler, fresh batch (best consumed by 8/30/2014), no mention of ABV, new exclusive American brew Anno 2012, from De Hopduvel Gent, very complex bitter brew, fruity/bitter and slightly woody/floral, balanced, cloudy, rocky head, very good brew, yet expensive!

Draft. Light yellow pour with some scant head. Citrus, grapefruit, or grassy hop aromas. Flavor is milder than I thought it would be, floral, citrus and grassy flavors.

cpetrone84 (1467) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 11, 2014
Pour is hazed golden yellow with an off white head. Nose is juicy, tropical fruit and citrus, a hint resiny and oily in back. Light grain profile up front and some malt sweetness to balance. Taste has more bitterness than I thought it would, lighter body and softer carbonation. The grain is soft up front, hop driven. Citrus, pine fades to a more leafy herbal note, a strong grapefruit bitterness lingers with a fairly dry finish.

ChinoSkillzian (167) - The Hills, California, USA - JAN 14, 2014
Growler thanks to GT. Pours a glowing light gold color with medium sized white head. Can smell this from a mile away, big aromas of overripe grapefruit, mango, pineapple juice, slight hop spiciness, marshmallow. The palate is juicy with flavors of tropical fruits, round citrus, sweetness but not malt sweetness more of a fruit sugar sweetness. Still manages to be light on its feet, finishing clean with some leafy bitterness.

VT (1413) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 8, 2014
Growler. Pours a cloudy orangeish with a short lived white head. Aroma is fruits (oranges, grapefruits and other citrus). Flavor is fruits, yeast, tons of citrus, spruce and resin. Finish is hop oils, and tons of bitterness. Medium body, soft mouthfeel, average carbonation. Very solid.

750 ml growler shared by a local. Pours a hazy golden orange color with a medium sized white head. The aroma and flavor have a wonderful grapefruit citrus, some tropical fruits, dank hops, and some resin, not a bitterness monster, but very fruity and aromatic, juicy. Enough malt backbone to stand up to the hops. I still look forward to trying anything from these guys.
