growler. pours hazy almost cloudy pale yellow-grey-ish with a minimal white head, some retention and lacing, which is quite nice for a 18 days old growler. very fresh and bright citrus, green goodness, some dankness, soft pine needles, pale malts and wheat, hint of acidity. average carbonation, light body - never watery, relatively short and very nice citrusy-lightly piney finish, much more aromatic than bitter. good balance. dangerously quenching and good!

UPDATED: JUN 13, 2013 Growler shared by czar, muy thanks! Pours a really pale yellow and cloudy. Aroma is fresh, piney, dank and feeling juicy too. Quite a nice blend of hops I must say! Taste is bone dry with a medium level of bitterness lingering for a while. Flavors are once again only hoppy, mostly piney with no discernable malt. Ultra drinkable. A good one!

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.

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.
