Tasted from draft. Pours a super cloudy pale orange with thick white head. Tons of lacing. Aroma is big time tropical fruit. Notes of mango, passion fruit, pineapple and orange. Taste is incredibly well balanced. Mild to moderate bitterness with malt backbone. Really no bitter bite at all. I really think non IPA drinkers would love it. Creamy and smooth mouthfeel with no hint of alcohol. Flavors of oranges, grapefruit, passion fruit, mango, pine, biscuit sweetness. Incredible IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Swing-top growler from Greg. What an awesome surprise! Cloudy pale orange with white froth. Nose is orange, pine and grass with hints of cat. Medium body, resiny with a soft tingle. Taste is citrus peel, toffee, grapefruit, funky pine and lemon candies. Rindy goodness.

Draught @ Hill Farmstead Brewery, Greensboro, VT
Pours hazy yellow with a white head. Aroma has notes of malt, citrus, grape, grass, hint of caramel and alcohol. Taste is medium sweet and medium bitter with a long malty, citrus, grape and piney finish. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

BMMillsy (1750) - Florida, USA - JUN 9, 2015
UPDATED: JUN 19, 2015 Growler from the brewery. Pours cloudy yellow with a big creamy white head that just sticks all over the glass. Aroma of grapefruits, pineapples, mangoes, some pine and grass, really nice. Flavor is off the hook. Lots of bitterness here, but it gets your palate ready for the sweet pineapple and mango, along with lots of citrus fruits, and then a final kick of bitter dry pine. Finishes clean as can be (no surprise there for HF). Body is relatively light for a DIPA, but creamy with nice sweet malt backing. Goes down way too easy. This is fantastic.

Growler at home. Apperance is hazy yellow with a small head. Aroma is citurs, Grape, hops. lots of tropical fruit. Taste is crisp bitterness, citrus, a bit malty, but still a very good feel. Unfortounly the growler had popped, but this was still amazing. very light carbonation due to the popping..

Sampled at the brewery and rated from a 2L growler. Oddly enough seemed to benefit from sitting in the growler for a while as I was not originally too impressed by the sampler. Hazy dark amber with an off white head. Old lemon and grapefruit rind, mango, some papaya, some peach and semi-floral hops with a background malt presence. Moderate carbonation and full body, crisp, balanced, easy to drink and enjoyable with a refreshing bitterness.
