3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy golden amber, tight white head. Nose has fairly balanced grain notes, fresh, a lot like Edward. Hops have are herbal and grassy. light grapefruit, a touch light in the nose. Definitely the lightest on flavor, clean fresh grain, light cereal and dough, dry finish with more bitterness than some of the others. Grapefruit and orange citrus are light, hint of peach and grassy hops on a light body with strong carbonation.

(retrouvé dans mon backlog!) Bue au 2e anniversaire: Une blonde agressivement aromatique, florale, tropicale, douce résine dans un corps craquant et faiblement sucré. Une des meilleures pale ale brassée sur cette planète.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Made the long motorcycle journey to Greensboro, VT, braved the dirt roads to get to Hill Farmstead Brewery and enjoy on tap in June 2012.
A: Citrus, hops and pineapple. Strong, amazing pineapple in the nose. The malts break through toward the end.
A: Hazy burnt-golden color, with a small head that fades rather quickly.
T: Mild hop presence and creamy malts up front. The citrus and tropical fruits really shine on the back end. Goes down smoothly and on a warmer day I could put down several of these very quickly.
P: Perfect carbonation. Fairly strong bodied for the style. Crisp and smooth.
O: An excellent representation of the style. One of the best APA’s I’ve ever had. Beg, borrow or steal to get this!

From growler, courtesy of Peter & Yolanda. Beautiful hop aroma - piney, apricot, pineapple - sweet and luscious. Pale golden haze with thin white lacing head. Medium body with medium-high carbonation. Starts medium sweet with tons of hop flavors. Mild bitterness but intense flavor. A delicious APA and a real treat to try.

750mL growler purchased at the brewery. Shared with friends on 7/9/13. Clear gold pour with a medium white head. Aroma of mango, citrus, malt and pine. Malty flavor with grapefruit and pine accents before a bitter grapefruit peel finish. Very well done.

Growler: The aroma consists of moderate citrus, grapefruit, and light dank hops. It pours slightly hazy dull golden-orange with a small white head that fades to a thin film outlined by a slightly thicker ring. The flavor starts with quick dose of citrus. The finish has moderate grapefruit, pine, and a touch of lemon. It’s light-medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Another killer Pale Ale from Hill Farmstead.

Growler @ home. Pours a hazy light yellow orange appearance with a white wheat. Somewhat spicy, light onion, herbal, pineapple, grapefruity aroma. A bit chewy, bready, spicy, lightly dank, grapefruity, garlic/onion, cracker flavor that finishes a bit spicy. Refreshing and just too fucken easy to drink. Really a nice and flavorful APA. Thanks JesusOfVT!
