Type: 8-oz. draft
Glass: Clear tulip glass
From: Alpine Beer Company Pub in Alpine, Calif.
Purchased: June 9, 2016
Consumed: June 9, 2016
Stopped in to pick up a gift certificate and saw Hill Farmstead on the board. Insta-purchased. After looking up some more information, I don’t think it’s actually Hill Farmstead, but Grassroots (which may just be a part of Hill Farmstead). Either way I was looking forward to trying it without even looking what the group thinkers on Beer Advocate and Untappd were saying.
Poured a golden orange clear color with 1-to-2 fingers of off-white, fizzy head. Some bubbles coming up from the bottom of the glass. Very good spotty lacing. Average retention. (Sight - 4.00)
Smelled spicy up front, then got orange blossom, blood orange, hibiscus, floral aromas, lime zest, pear, citrusy notes, grassy notes and light green apple. (Smell - 4.25)
Tasted even better than the nose, getting lime zest, citrus, blood orange, grass, herbal, pear, kiwi, hibiscus and hints of cinnamon spice. (Taste - 4.50)
Light body. Oily texture. Lively carbonation. Long, citrusy finish. (Feel - 4.50)
This one just grew on me. Really liked it, but I feel like I overrated it just a tad. (Overall - 4.25)

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Thanks king hippo! Pours a hazy light orangish/yellowish color, with a fluffy white head. Beautiful looking beer in the glass. Aroma of lime, lemon zest, citrus, hay, grain and funk. Taste is a mouth puckering lemon and lime flavor, orange citrus, grapefruit, with some light grainy malts, funky tartness, and slight bitterness. Medium to light mouthful. Easily drinkable on a nice spring day. World class! Yes ma’am, may I please have another.

Fat CBC-16. En riktig bra saison sauvage med mycket funk, frisk och syrlig med citrus, vete, jäst, lite blommig. Som jag önskar att varje saison skall smaka. Riktigt gott.
