Holy intense aroma! The nose on this is redonk! Immense blast of grapefruit, citrus, mango and pine. This is a fruity, yet dank IPA! The malt balance is also exceptional and even apparent on the nose. Iím thinking there may be some malted rye in this, as I get almost a spicy/rustic malt presence from the aroma. Appearance is a murky copper color with a nice white creamy head. Taste is spot on - grapefruit, tropical fruits, citrus, pine and dank marijuana-like herbals. This also has a great mouthfeel - perfect carbonation for the style yet full bodied. This is extremely well balanced and it shows. This might be one of my favorite IPAs to date.

Draft at Good Beer, 2/5/16. Aroma crosses through all the hop tropes, with tropical notes, pine/resin, spice, earth, and even a hint of grass. Flavor is much the same, solidly bitter. It is slightly heavy on the carbonation but has a pretty good overall mouthfeel. Not the best thing Iíve ever had from Hill Farmstead, but still pretty stellar.

UPDATED: FEB 8, 2016 Growler at the Rate Beer Awards Festival Bottle Share. Dank-ass nose of grapefruit, diesel, lemon, orange. Rich, malty grapefruit and dank flavors, nice bitterness. Very good.

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.

migwell (209) - Northampton, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 28, 2016
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 sonís 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 Iíve had since summer.

yngwie (16045) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 2, 2015
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

UPDATED: NOV 25, 2015 Pours cloudy pale golden color with white head. Aroma is grapefruit, peaches, and mango. Slight oily mouthfeel. Flavor is juicy grapefruit, fresh peaches and mangos. Finishes with grapefruit and dank pine resin. A truly amazing brew.
