4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

Draft in tulip. Very hazy goldish orange with a short white head. Aroma is citrus, grass, and yeast. Lemon, grapefruit, honey, pine. Just a little funkiness.

Hazy gold pour. Aroma mild hops. Tastes mild hops. This was very light tasting for a supposedly hoppy brew. There are better hill beers.

I'm not an IPA person, but I can respect it when it's done well. And this is most definitely done well.

Sample pour at the source. Pours a cloudy gold with a foamy white head. Aromas of tropical fruit, some grass. Flavor nicely of peach, mango, and some grass notes. Medium body, thick texture and solid carbonation. Mildly bitter to finish. Amazing.

Bottle sample @ The Stein & Vine, Brandon. Thanks Ty!
Dorée-orangée, pas de col.
Arôme offre une superbe profondeur des houblons, fleuri à souhait, résineux, rappelant un Simcoe et Amarillo. Malt reste en retrait.
Palais est malté léger, sur un houblonné vert très frais avec un renforcement houblonné rappelant les pellettes. Houblonnage à cru? fini est sec légèrement poudreux, et les houblons sont tous simplement divin.

Several pours out of a growler. Poured a hazy golden color with a smaller sized head. Juicy. Fruity, pine, and citrus. I could drink this all day and every day long.

Shred growler at Craft Ale House beer share. Turbid gold pour with white head. Nose was that classic piney and tropical fruity, juicy hop nose. Tasted hoppy, with layered tropical citrus, some funk, spice, and amazing complexity.

on tap at Abbye in Worcester. Pours a messy brownish hazy murky color. Two inches of fuzzy head. Great grape and peach aroma. mouthfeel is light and smooth. Taste is extremely well balanced with zero bittnerness. Slightly creamy, probably due to the fact that it’s not filtered. Lots of peachy mango with other light flavors. Really, really good.

Pours a hazy orange with a dense white lacing. The aroma is orange forward followed by grapefruit and other citrus notes. There is some booze towards the end. The flavor is bitter and the palate finishes somewhat dry.
