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.

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Big bursting aroma of tangerine, touch of grapefruit, tiny bits of pine, hay hitting me before I can even take a look. Brilliant, slightly hazy pink grapefruit, golden color with a rocky head of white foam. medium to light medium body with slightly soft carbonic feel. Balanced in all directions, a touch sour in the finish finish. Shockingly delicious. Very strange.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Growler courtesy of Kermis. Poured a hazy light amber with a frothy white head. The aroma is big pine needle, grassy hop and loads of fresh citrus fruit. The flavour is medium to light bitter with a smooth light refreshing zesty citrus, woody, light pepper palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Quite a light beer but with lots going on. Track this down if you can. I was lucky to get a taste!
