20th September 2014
Zwanze Day at the Kernel. Thanks, as ever, to Mr Smith for sharing the HF goodies and this is a goody! Lightly hazy gold beer, big head, very pale cream colour. Palate is airy and a little soft. Mild fine carbonation. Airy malts support lovely hops - Skunk and Motueka like sweet ish floralness. Light hops spice. Pine develops toward the light and semi dry finish. Piney skunk lingers on. Just really nicely joined up and very drinkable.

Growler from the brewery - shared with Team London at Zwanze Day 2014 at The Kernel. Pours unclear gold with a creamy, white head. The nose is loaded with melon and tangerine, some pale bread, pissy hops. Medium sweet flavor with buckets more juicy citrus fruits, prominent tangerine, candied orange, lightly pithy grapefruit, melon. Medium to full bodied with fine carbonation and graceful texture. Lightly oily and resinous on the finish, pretty sweet with low bitterness, more fruity hops, juicy tangerine, ripe orange. Superb balance, great depth. Excellent.

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.
