Draft at Farmhouse in Burlington- thanks to Jeff for having this one on tap for my visit! Pours a lovely hazy orange with that classic dense, gorgeous frothy white Hill Farmstead head. Nose brings a stunning initial hit of grapefruit rind, both more bitter white zest character with sweeter pink flesh flavor, along with tangerine, clementine, apricot, honeydew, and assertive pine. The flavor continues to bring wave after wave of immensely flavorful citrus backed by subtle but beautifully bittering evergreen and balancing nectar fruit sweetness. The mouthfeel is just full enough, but beautifully drinkable with a lasting bitterness that almost seems to provide a 5 second respite causing the facade of a smooth finish, then attacking you again for that lingering hop bite. An absolutely stunning lower alcohol IPA; could be my favorite.

Clownoisseur (268) - 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!

Slipstream (2076) - USA - NOV 20, 2014
Draft at HF. This is getting very high ratings, but I didn’t see it somehow. I thought it was a fairly yeasty, saison-like IPA, with some grassy hops. All right.

SlovakSniper (3371) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 18, 2014
Beau verre de soleil, d’orange, de tangerine, de pêche, de fruits japonais et d’ananas avec des herbes et des aiguilles qui piquent sur un fond céréalier qui craque à chaque inspiration. Saveurs juteuses, fruitées, vitaminées, vertes, campagnardes et épicées. Superbe présence en bouche. Quel beau travail! Arrière-goût fantastique avec une solide présence de pamplemousse et de fleurs. Aromatique, houblons ajustés à merveille, jamais agressive, excessivement facile à boire. Totalement éclatante.

Tap @ Mikkeller & Friends. Pours hazy orange amber with a white head. Aroma is fresh hop forward with lots of dankness, grapefruit, herbs, mandarin mango and citrus fruits. Just a stunningly good aroma. The taste has those same tropical and citrusy fruits, also a slightly mint-feel and some lemon peel. So refreshing and drinkable. Wop!
