Growler 75CL. Very cloudy, looks like orange juice. 2 finger sold white head. Sweet aroma like grapes, juice oranges and rich grapefruit with pine resin. Thin body, more oily than carbonated. Rich tropical fruit flavor, white grape and grapefruit finish. Very tasty.

This one did not stand out for me in any way, and earns MEH rating. Not much of a nose, typical uninspired IPA taste. I had been exposed to some great IPAs in the days leading up to this and expected so much more.

On tap at the Farm House Tap & Grill in Burlington with John, Anne and Patty for dinner. A golden hazy pour, with a nice white head with lace. Aroma of tangerines, white grapes and bread. Taste is mango's, light grapes, wheat and lots of citrus. Light body with a little bitterness.

One of the most disappointing hoppy HF beer so far for me with almost no aromatic hops and plenty of spicy herbalness.

Growler (750 ml), partagé par JulienHuxley, merci! Apparence laiteuse, couleur jaune surmontée par un mince col blanc. Au nez, c'est étrangement épicé avec des notes fruitées de raisin blanc et de mangues. Au goût, le profil est assez similaire et l'amertume est modérée. Corps moyen. Carbonatation modérée à moyenne. Finale herbacée. C'est peut-être un problème avec le growler, parce Julien qui l'a bue en fût sur place trouvait qu'elle n'était pas l'ombre d'elle-même. Néanmoins, c'est décevant et se range parmi les moins bonnes bières houblonnées d'Hill Farmstead que j'ai bues.

Filled a 750 ml growler at the brewery. Aroma is very fruity, mango, pineapple, kiwi. Wow, very mild pine in the finish. The Nelson hop is much more forward than Simcoe. This comes off this fruity. White grape, straw, citrus, just the lightest pine hint in the finish. Pretty nice overall, highly drinkable.

Poured from growler thanks Airforcehops hazy peach orange with a nice white head. Aromas of juicy citrus orange mango light floral notes with light pine. Taste is juicy orange grass scallion with a balanced mouth feel and a nice bitter finish.

Growler shared by AirForceHops. Thanks, Chris! Pours straw yellow with an off white head. Aroma is tropical, mango, grapefruit. Not what I expect with Simcoe/Nelson. Flavor is mostly grapefruit citrus. There's a hint of pine, but I can't believe that this is only Nelson and Simcoe.

T Hanks Shaun E, Pours a golden, hazy glow, with a nice, dense white head. Lots of lacing left on the glass. Aroma of tangerines, white grapes, hay and doughy bread. Taste is of oranges, mango's, light grapes, and wheat. Light body. Bitter bite. Drying finish. Refreshing. Well done.

3.8
MacBoost (1983) - Victor, New York, USA - OCT 8, 2017
Can, maybe 2 weeks old. Pours hazy, bro. Aroma of some catty hops but also some tropical juice. Taste is semi dry and semi bitter. Mouthfeel is kind of watery. It's good, but not their best effort.

4.1
JulienHuxley (6001) - Sherbrooke, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 6, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 6, 2017 On tap at the brewery. Milky pale yellow pour with medium super lacy white head. Aroma is sweet, fruity, lightly dank. Taste is very lightly bitter, grassy, superior juicy. Palate is med bodied, really creamy. Tasty
