UPDATED: JUN 11, 2014 Sampled at the brewery. Pours cloudy golden with a lacy, white head. Aroma of citrusy and floral hops plus some caramel and pale malts. Flavor a perfect blend. Average texture. Great. Edit (6/11/14): 750ml growler in a Hill Farmstead glass. Pours the same color as most HF hoppy beers. Aroma strong of the citrusy and floral and fruity hops, some pale malts with a nice crispness. Flavor the same with an amazing blend. Still amazing. Imagine that, HF keeps making great beers.

750 ml flip top from 46er3498. Pours a clear light orange color with a medium fizzy head that lingers nicely, leaves a little oily webbing. Aromas are perfumy flowers, lemon zest, musty grass, and grapefruit. Taste is all hops fresh perfumy hops. Flowers and lemons mostly. No malt detectable. Different spices and herbs show up in the finish as well. Light body and a slightly oily mouthfeel. Overall, this is good but I’m surprised at so many rave reviews. I would expect to taste some malt in an APA.

Pours a cloudy light orange with white head and so e lacing. Aroma of mangos, peaches, grapefruits, lots fruity caracters. Taste is full of the same fruits with a nice little malt backbone. Little bitterness. Low body and medium carb. A winner here!

Very hazy gold beer, little white head. Palate is light and crispy but turning softer. Semi dry. Very mild malt cream under marvellous fresh pink grapefruit hops. Touch of yellow grapefruit hops and lesser orange citrus. Mildly bitter seltzer minerals. Finishes fairly neutral with a nice citric bitter aftertaste. Beautifully put together and very refreshing.

2L growler thanks to Nick poured in HF stemware. Pours a typical Hill opaque yellow orange with a massive white head that dissipates to a slight bubbly film. Smell is citrus, orange, hay, and a little bread. Taste follow with a slight piney bitterness. Really excellent session brew.

Lukaduke (2444) - Portland, Maine, USA - MAY 15, 2013
Pours a hazy yellow golden color with a two finger foam. On the nose its got some nice juicy orange, earthy straw and a trace of pine. The palate follows the nose but is more rustic and grassy. Heavy carbonation scrubs the citrus notes away quickly and the bitter earthy flavors hold strong as the finish comes across clean and focused.

Damico (2747) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 10, 2013
Pours unclear golden with an orange hue, thicker for the style which is nice. Aroma is the only thing that is not balanced here because it is so light. What you do get in the nose is so juicy and delicious, some citrus sweet hops. The body and flavor are perfectly balanced, as usual for HF. It brings juicy hops with just the right tang, and citrus, soft without any hop bite at all. Each sip gets better, refreshing the palate on a warm spring day just like ana APA should do. Lingers on the tongue just long enough until you are going back for more.
