I’m convinced HF can’t go wrong and Susan is right on par with its 100 rating. I had this in a shipped growler fill and it was mind blowing. A good hop malt balance aroma. I loved the balance of the sweet and juicy citrus taste with the sour grapefruit bite. Awesome light body, thin texture balance. Did I mention this beer is well-balanced? Amazing stuff!

Growler filled about a week and a half ago. Pours hazy orange, almost marigold, with one finger of large-bubbled off-white head that settles into a nice layer of lacing. Aroma is aromatic and spicy tropical fruit with dank Nelson-like notes of weed, mountain herbs, papaya, mango, durian, starfruit, peach, and riesling. Just out of control how good this smells – more or less perfect for those who like the Southern Hemisphere profile. Taste is silky mango and orange juice with some prominent white grape notes and somewhat more hard to pin down lychee-like notes, but less syrupy than most IPAs that are this fruity. Instead the second impression, after the initial tastes, is one of crispness and the pale malt base showing through with remarkable balance. Texture is impressive: silky but gulpable. I recall this beer being a favorite when I first had it, in my pre-RB days, at Blackback, and now I’ll say it again: maybe my favorite Shaun Hill IPA for its tremendous balance of aromatics, boldness of flavor, crispness, and "drinkability." Love it.

Belle couleur dorée avec un col blanc mousseux. Aromes d’agrumes, surtout de pamplemousse, un peu de résine, bien équilibré avec une amertume controlé. Une bonne IPA!

lefossoyeur (486) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 3, 2015
From a growler, consumed a couple of hours after fill. Hazy dirty blonde with a generous white head. Gentle citrus aromas with some mild flowery hops présence. Nice carbonation, crisp palate, very smooth bitterness, very far from a hop bomb with a superior drinkability. So easy drinking. Very nice sessionable IPA.

Clownoisseur (325) - Buchanan, Michigan, USA - DEC 28, 2014
Growler from Hill Farmstead. Pours a bright yellow-gold, nice frothy white head that slowly fades to a cap. Nice moderate carbonation. Aromas of fresh citrus, flowers, sweet resins and a slight pine. Taste is a nice harmony of fresh squeezed oranges, lemon-lime and light malt sweetness before a nice bitter backbone finishes this off with a nice and dry grapefruit note. Really nice IPA!
