From notes (11/21/15). An amazing IPA with a ton of well chosen hops. It all blends together to make a "greatest hits" of modern American IPAs -- grapefruit and orange juice, a fair amount of pine, and some floral notes too.

On tap at Armsby Abbey, Woosta. A trip to Worcester has saved me an all day drive to Northern Vermont to sample some HF brews. Great stuff. Visually lovely even in the under-lit Abbey. Clean, fresh flavor and aroma, a burst of citrus and hops with a very nice malt background and the mildest bitterness. Very well balanced, easy drinking... a very classy IPA.

Glowing light orange with a big white head. Aroma of citrus, pine, apricot and mango. Taste quite juicy of tropical fruits with a restrained bitterness, nice mouthfeel. Had this blind next to PseudoSue & Zeelander, at this landed at the bottom.

Purchased growler at brewery after son’s ski meet in next-door Craftsbury. Pours a frothy, thin head with golden-yellow color. Citrus and bread aromas but piney-citrus taste dominates. Medium-light carbonation with grapefruit peel aftertaste. One of best beers I’ve had since summer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Hill Farmstead. A yellow-orange colored beer topped by a creamy, off-white head of fingerthick size. Grapefruity aroma with resins and a touch of pale malts. Perhaps a bit low on bitterness, but with a good grapefruity, resiny hoppy flavor on a lightly bready malt backdrop. Medium to full body and a nice carbonation level. Mostly fruity lasting finish. Quenching and quite tasteful. 150610

From a growler, picked up at the brewery. Murky gold. Messy, sticky, milky white head. Big fresh hop to this. Notes of peach. Tinned pear. Lychee. Soft, creamy malts. Very luscious. Taste has a nice balance of juicy sweetness and light, pithy bitterness. Creamy palate. Has definite body to it. Soft chew. Finishes long, soft, rising bitter. Lovely.
