4.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Growler fill from the brewery. 2nd best IPA I’ve ever had. Is it the well water or just a well balanced and hoptastic brew? Either way it’s mighty tasty. Cheers!

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
750ml growler. Huge thanks to Onebigtymer11. Pours a murky straw color with two fingers of fluffy white head. Lots of lacing. Aroma is "punch you in the face" grapefruit, some pineapple, peach, and just loads of sweet citrusy hops. Taste is again loads of grapefruit bitterness, notes of pineapple and other citrus fruits, some bready malt, grass, and some pine in the finish. Holy S$@# this is good!

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bright golden-orange body, medium sized white head, soapy lacing. Massive grapefruit presence supported by pine, orange and some tropical fruits. Medium bodied, assertive bitterness, clean finish, appropriately carbonated. Reminds me of fresh Blind Pig with some tropical notes

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample at the brewery on 7/6/13. Clear orange in color with a medium white head. Malty and piney nose with grassy and spicy hop notes. Malty flavor with some onion and pine before a bitter grapefruit finish.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Hazy golden orange color, thin white head. Sugary tropical aroma of orange, grapefruit, peach, and mango. Mild sweetness followed by residual orange peel bitterness. Creamy, smooth, and crisp. Light- to medium-bodied, a pleasant bit of booziness, and refreshing

On tap. Pours a cloudy yellow amber. Very beautiful fruity aroma. Incredibly rich and smooth. Balance of hops and citrus. Awesome.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
At the brewery October 2012
A- unfiltered opaque tangerine yellow with fair lacing and a finger of fluffy white head.
S - Big grapefruit. Pine and some grass and a bit of soap. Hints of orange and lemon as well with other less pronounced citrus and tropical fruits.
M- light, tart and effervescent with a light to medium body and medium palate.
T- more big grapefruit. Kiwi, mango and honey in the middle with long but smooth finish of more juicy grapefruit. Some resin and grass in the front as well. Pretty smooth from front to back, consistent, with no real high highs and low lows in the taste curve. Straight forward, but a good beer regardless.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Harvest festival and a week later in a 2L growler. Poured into HF taster again the classic Hill opaque yellow/orange in color with a healthy two finger white fluffy head. Heavy citrus scents, grapefruit and orange. Taste was mostly citrus, grapefruit. Had high expectations for this given how great #4 was. This was good, but didn’t quite measure up to #4.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This poured a darker yellow color with an off white head. The description certainly fits this one. Straight grapefruit rind in the noze. very citrusy, light orange, showing light grain as well. Flavor was fairly bitter grapefruit, but not mouth puckering, great feel on the mouth, not cloying, but refreshing. One dimensional and interesting experiment, but not mind blowing like a few of their other IPA offerings.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap. Very hazy gold pour, almost white, white head. Aroma is really quite fruity and pungent, lots of grapefruit, the hops are wet and sticky. Taste is fruity, not particularly bitter, very grapefruity - bitter and citrusy tart at once. Alcohol is not perceptible. Palate is lightly-med carbed with med body. Not a huge fan of the Hill Farmstead Beers; however, I have to give them a B for effort.
