2L growler, 2 days after visiting the brewery. Hazy glowing yello pour with lacy white head. Aroma is really nice and dank, light onion, great dank piney simoce, light citrusy grapefruit and lemon notes. Taste is lightly bitter, dank hop flavor, pure hop juice. Palate is med bodied with light carbonation, realllly tasty, damn this stuff is good.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pour is dark amber, very hazy, lots of white head with a thicker lace. Nose has some fresh cut grain, light pale malt and a touch of sticky caramel. Hops are a bit soapy first, then a very strong grapefruit rind, almost a sweaty grapefruit. Taste is a bit sweeter, lots of fresh grains up front, a fairly moderate malt presence, huge tropical hop punch. Still some grapefruit rind mid to late palate, some mangos and a touch of pineapple. Body is incredibly light and delicate, very nicely carbonated, just a clean crisp and slightly dry finish.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750mL bottle, sent from my sugar daddy, pours an opaque golden orange with a medium white head. Nose is certainly a West Coast hop bomb, with resinous hops, tons of different juicy fruits, like tangerine and mangos, candied sugar, and maltier backbone than most hoppy Hill Farmstead beers. Flavour is along those same lines, with a sweet flavour profile than typical for HF IPAs, bringing out resinous hops, lots of tropical fruits, some residual candied sugar and a caramel bready malt backbone. It’s a kickass IIPA for sure, but perhaps not up to the usual standard of HF’s hoppy beers due to the higher sweetness. Still, excellent stuff.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Malts mielleux et concentrés surmontés de houblons machables floraux, agrumés et sucrés. Pas dans la même gamme céréalière et croustillante auquel je suis habitué, néanmoins savoureux.

Growler thanks to Leighton. It pours hazy golden-orange with a medium white head. The nose is soft, juicy, orange, tangerine, passion fruit, light soap and sherbet. The taste is crisp, juicy, orange peel, light booze, mango, peach, grapefruit, candied peel, sherbet and earth with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation foamy mouth-feel. Juicy and fruity. Nice.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Courtesy of the man, the myth, the legend... Leighton. Pours a beautiful bright golden orange (the looks are legendary), fluffy white head. Aroma is tangerine, citrus, grapefruit, grass, funky pithy citrus mold, melon, faint pine. Flavor is light and fruity, pale bready malt backbone - completely masks the ABV, no sign of alcohol just deliciousness. Fairly light body, finish of the beer is not very full.. Actually a little dry. Overall, high end stuff.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Growler poured into teku glass. Hazy goldenrod color with thick white head that leaves nice laceing. Aroma is mandarin oranges, grapefruit rind, light lemon and cheesiness. Taste is dry and sharply bitter finish. Flavor comes off like citrus fruit salad and citrus zest. Great beer. Oh how I missed fresh hf pales.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Growler... Hazy yellow pour with a small, creamy, white head. The aroma offers a melding of grapefruit, passionfruit and spicy, peppery hops. Full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and vibrant carbonation. Excellent bitterness and breadiness in the flavor - rindy, tannic hops upheld by a fragile, cracker malt foundation. Crisp, bitter finish.
