Had as a taster at the brewery. Will update once I’ve dug into the growler for a full glass. PA, rich head, lots of lacing, floral happy note, malt, Carmel, and citrus. Not as in your face hoppy as a traditional IPA, but deliciously smooth. Hazy rich golden color. Long mellow finish. Leaves you licking your lips. Seriously seriously good.

UPDATED: MAR 27, 2014 Growler 750 mL. Au nez et en bouche: mangue, pamplemousse rose et fruit de la passion. Rien d’agressif: le nez est subtil et la bouche est presque mince, mais l’ensemble est joli et particulièrement agréable. Un peu de notes ammoniacales en finale, L’alcool n’est pas perceptible.

Marheb (1749) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 2, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 4, 2014 Un ipa hyper aromatique, kiwi, mangue, pêche, raisin vert, agrumes sucrés et en bouche c’est parfaitement carbonaté avec une amertume qui se dissipe rapidement. Étoffée et succulente bière de soif.

Ataraxia (303) - Massachusetts, USA - JUN 29, 2013
Slightly hazy orangish gold with thin white lacing. Sweet and zesty aroma of orange, grapefruit, mango, peach, and passion-fruit. Bitter, dried orange peel in the taste. A little thin, but crisp and lively. Long, bitter finish. Almost no alcohol presence.

Growler de 2L, frais de la veille. Arômes intenses de houblons fruités, très frais. Robe blonde et trouble, belle mousse et effervescence veloutée. En bouche, la bière montre une texture remarquablement veloutée et crémeuse. Les houblons fruités (fruits tropicaux, pêches et pamplemousses) sont très expressifs et frais. Le malt est légèrement plus costaud que pour les pale ales de la maison (Edward et What is Enlightment), mais demeure tout de même discret. Finale moyennement amère et plutôt sèche. Une remarquable IPA, probablement ma préférée de cette brasserie.

In short: A kickass aromatic pale IPA. That simple.
How: Growler 750ml, consumed fresh a few hours after purchase at the brewery.
The look: Cloudy amber-orange body topped by a medium white head with medium retention and leaving lots of lacings on the glass.
In long: The highly aromatic nose is a pure bouquet of tropical fruits over a bed of flowers. Taste has the typical Hill Farmstead IPA malt backbone, full, bready, crackery, light notes of soft caramel This one seems to be using a bit more caramel malts than many of their single-ipa lineup (almost zero caramel in those) but a bit less than in their flagship Edward. Hopping is dominant but never aggressive, lots of tropical fruits, nice floral character, some grapefruits, light coniferous notes. This is once again HF being HF, pushing strong in the aromas department, keeping it simple, focus on high drinkability more than high intensity. This one is near the top of their kick-ass IPA lineup. If I had to choose between world peace and an unlimited supply of Hill Farmstead I’d be faced with a difficult dilemma, start each day with an Hill Farmstead IPA or with a Hill Farmstead Saison?

Growler courtesy of my Hill Farmstead pusher - Leighton! Cheers Ears! Light hazer on this amber beer, little off white head. Palate is light and a little dry. Nice nose of skunky hops. Mild minerals. Lovely rich marmalade orange hops. Bitterish peel and traces of lemon and skunk. Touch of yellow grapefruit. Intense flavours in a real light palate. Finishes crispy with a good bitter linger.

Scopey (5527) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 8, 2013
Growler thanks to Leighton. It pours hazy orange-amber with a medium white head. The nose is fresh pine, juicy fruit, orange, tangerine, passion fruit and star fruit. The taste is pine, resinous, pithy orange, tangerine, grapefruit, touch of spice, marmlade, nice bitterness and some alcohol warmth with a bitter, lightly citric finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Brilliant on the nose and pretty tasty too.

Growler @ Bruce’s. Cheers to Leighton for all the HF beers! The pour’s slightly hazy amber with a small white head. The aroma’s candied orange peel, potpourri, light pineapple, funky pacific hoppiness. Piss-soaked grass. Inviting, complex aromas. The taste is strong lime, singed grass. Strong cat’s piss. A bit of fruity tangerine sweetness. Strong bitter finish. Light body, effervescent carbonation. Overall, the nose on this is world class. It hits that funky/tropical sweet spot perfectly. The taste is a bit less rounded, but still quite nice.

Flip top 750 growler @ a recent bottle share... Poured golden with a moderate, eggy white head. I think their IPAs are super solid and prefer them over the more Belgiany stuff. This hit the spot. Pungent in your face hop tones yet balanced and adequate. Citrus, grassy, and earthy.
