4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On-tap at Parker Pie and HF Harvest Fest 2012 into HF wine glass and pint glass (at Parker Pie).
Pours a mirky golden yellow color, white head, thin collar, spotty lace. Aroma is hop-forward without being over-the-hop, light fruity sweetness, some resin in there too. Flavor is grapefruit, pine, and citrus. Hoppy yet smooth...not a palate-wrecker...very well-done. Light toward medium body, good carbonation, oily hoppy finish.
Easier to drink then S&S #4 and I think I enjoyed this one a bit more as well. Very easy to drink for 7.8% and the perfect balance of hops to not kill me after one or two glasses. Great stuff!

Medium sized, fluffy white head that really lasts, lacing is thick, coating and lasting.Seriously murky, blond in color. Citrusy, resiny, piney nose, lightly earthy and somewhat dank. Med/full body, velvety on the tongue with a really soft carbonation, juicy and fat, mouthwatering. Danky, green hop flavors, largely citrus with notes of pineapple juice and some burnt wiring, hint tropical and spicy. Dry finish with a lighter than expected bite, some stone fruit notes. Just juicy goodness, fresh. Props to WillRunForBeer for the growler, awesome! Thanks again Brian!

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours hazy and like grapefruit juice. Yellow and with a thin white head of foam that fell pretty fast. Leaves some lace. Nose is citrus! Orange, grapefruit and a little sweet grass. The malt peeks itís head out with a touch of sweetness on the nose. It drinks lovely. Not a hint of alcohol on the palate. Just beautiful citrus. sweet orange, sweet earth, a touch fo grapefruit and some grass. Finishes with a perfect bitter that does not reside too long and that reminds you to take one last notice of all that fruit. Malt is a bit of weight on the palate but has a sweetness that seems to come out of no where and so delicately. Drinks clear and fruity and finishes dry but with a bit of tartness to keep your mouth watering long into the finish.
Another fabulous beer from Hill Farmstead.

Growler drank one day after purchase. Pour a beautiful blond with a foamy white head. Aroma is very citrusy along with the usual Hill Farmstead dankness. Taste is grapefruit zest, some bready malts and a lingering resinous bitterness. Full bodied with lively carbonation. Another stellar hoppy beer from Hill Farmstead.
