Glouglouburp (6023) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 11, 2012
UPDATED: JUL 2, 2013 In short: A superb refreshing and highly aromatic hoppy blond IPA bursting with floral and tropical fruits hops
How: A few times on tap. This rating for a growler consumed fresh the day of purchase
The look: Cloudy yellow-blond body topped by a medium white head leaving lots of lacings on the glass
In long: As usual from HF hoppy beer, hereís a highly aromatic hoppy nose, fresh an vibrant. This one proposes a strong floral character backed by tropical fruits. Body is typical blond IPA malt bill, a mix of fresh baguette, crisp crackers, low sweetess, soft bubbles. Hopping provides a clean and flavorful bitterness that is more refreshing than intense. I had this beer on tap on many occasions at the brewery and it is surprising how a few weeks can change a beer. Once I noted that it was the least bitter of all the very hoppy beer Iíve had, a few weeks later I found the bitterness was rather sharp. But it was always excellent, and maybe my favorite of the all the Hill Farmstead single IPAs. And if you are drinking this beer and a major in philosophy asks you what you are drinking, lie, make up a beer name, donít answer, just donít say the beer name, trust me on this one.

Stine (1572) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 18, 2012
On tap at Prohibition Pig, Waterbury VT. Delicate aroma of flowers, white fruits and banana; thereís a creaminess and tartness to it that suggests wheat. Itís dry, and deep, but still somewhat simple. Flavor is a brisk blend of grasses, flowers, and citrus skins; again, dry, and deeper than it seems. Light body; finish is pithy and zesty, and surprisingly long; easy, and quenching, very well composed.

Pours a hazy light golden color with a small white head. Aroma is of a grassy citrus and tropical hops with some pine mixed in. Taste follows the nose with a thiner body and a mild malt build. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Lubiere (9999) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 29, 2012
A hazed golden ale with a thick lacing white head. In aroma, superb mix of pungent grassy and citrusy hops, meaty, menthol notes, wonderful. In mouth, nice and smooth lactic malt with loads ofl resinous hops, yet silly and smooth. On tap at Somerville Summerfest, July 14, 2012.

samami (4) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 26, 2012 does not count
If there can be such a thing, then it is a perfect beer. Not too bitter, not too sweet. Complex and wonderful. Makes me want to move to the area. The brewery is way, way, way off the beaten track, but well worth the effort to get there. Aroma: bread, cereal, herbs, citrus, floral APPEARANCE: pale, hazy, frothy TASTE: medium sweetness, medium bitterness PALATE: medium body, average carbonation, long finish

Acquired in a trade from Adam. Big thanks for this one man! Shared this growler at home with my dad. Poured a hazy orange color, with a nice white head. Aroma is citrus, somewhat floral, grapefruit, orange peel, some bread, and wheat. Taste is sweet tropical fruits, citrus, grass, grapefruit, biscuit, and lemon peel. Mouthfeel is medim with high carbonation. So glad to taste another pale ale from HF and another winner. Cheers!

On draft at Cigar City, poured a cloudy golden color, aromas of lit caramel, citrus, and some grassy hops. Flavors are the same, blended nicly, light bitterness at the end, solid beer would easily drink again.

Pours a hazy golden/honey color with a medium creamy white head...nice retention and lacing. Aroma has grass, citrus, light spice, tea, and mild straw. Flavor has very mild malty/caramel notes and nice grassy/citrusy and spicy hop notes...pleasant bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium and silky with an earthy/bitter dry finish.
