Poured from a 750ml growler into a HF taster. Pours a opaque orange yellow with a small white head. Smells of earthy citrus, hay, and pretty much like the rest of Shawnís beers. Taste is crisp and clean citrus and a super dry finish.
Our first rating for the esteemed Hill Farmstead from our weekend VT beer tour and itís great as almost everything they do is (some are just very very good). It has a juicy citrusy aroma and pours a dank hazy cloudy orange color. The taste is a little more hoppy bitter than the Treehouse-esque juice bomb one might expect based on appearance and smell, but it is perfectly balanced and complex. This is definitely one of the best IPAs Iíve had. Good for sitting in the grass and debating Leelee Sobieskiís baby name choices while waiting for your friend to get off the phone with his credit card company because he got a phantom hold placed on it while purchasing >$100 of bottles.

Tap. Hazy mellow looking light peachy orange. Some sherbet, wooziness, slight sweat, and tangelo in aroma. Flavor is similar, but heavier on the wordiness. Light to medium super soft body. Palme (4780) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 14, 2017
On tap @ Fools Gold. This one has a lovely glowing bright orangey honey colored body with a nice big dense lasting and hefty lacing cream whiteish heas. Looks flawless. Smells amazing. Super fresh, citrussy without being sharp or too aggressive. Lots of sweet peachy nectar tones, fruity. Just a lovely smelling one this. Tastes really nice also. Itís mild oily in the mouth and itís just below average on the prickling carbonation. Smooth andre light citrussy flavors. A little pineapple, pear. Mellowed and balanced to perfection. Light leafy hoppy herbal tail finished this one off. Smooth an d delicious. 14.06.2017 Prufrockstar (2132) - Moscow, Idaho, USA - MAY 31, 2017
Draft at Blackback. Hazy gold, frothy head. Whoa. Super juicy citrus nose, goddamn. Smells like itll be a bit sweet and herbal. Taste: actually lighter sweetness, surprisingly restrained bitterness, finishes with taste that reminds me of stone ground mustard (5000 knows what Im talking about). Medium body, average carbonation, oily texture. Overall: lovely + mustard. b3shine (8795) - Indiana, USA - MAY 14, 2017
Draft to pint at Prohibition Pig. Looks good; a cloudy pineapplish apricot with foamy eggshell head. Smells good; pineapple and grapefruit up front with a mildly to moderately bittersweet backbone. Tastes like it smells with a pleasantly bitter medium-bodied mouthfeel. Delicious.

On tap at Blind Tiger. Super juicy tropical fruit aroma. Great balance, though definitely on the bitter side. Peach, pine, tropical fruits. Resin finish. Awesome. jonno (2751) - JAPAN - APR 19, 2017
Tap. Now this beer is lethal - Full bodied, big hops in buttering and aroma, dry and tight. This drinks with all the flavour of a 8 to 9% DIPA. Wonderfully balanced as most HF beers are. PotjeBier (3195) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - APR 9, 2017
Draft @ Fools Gold (NYC). Cloudy yellow golden color. Dense white head with good lacing. Aromaís: lovely citrus, light malts. Retronasal itís citrussy sourish hops (3x). Flavor is rather bitter, though not too harsh. Medium bodied. Rather high, but very fine carbonation. Long dryish finish, earthy and herbal bitter. Nice!

4 oz pour on draft at ChurchKey during the Hill Farmstead tap takeover on 4/1/2017. Not an April Foolís Joke. Hazy yellow with off-white head. Aromas of citrus, floral notes, tropical fruit. Tastes of pine, citrus, floral notes, tropical fruit. Medium body with a dry finish. ilovedarkbeer (2737) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - APR 3, 2017
Also very good but was a little less complex compared to Susan. Nice orange notes with some pine. Earth bitter finish and foamy mouthfeel.
