3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours straw colored with nice fluffy head. Aroma is fruity and different with interesting citrus and berry notes. Taste is a bit muted but still quite good. I wanted to try this hop variety but it isnt as great as I hoped.
750ml growler poured in a Hill Farmstead oversized wine glass.
A~ glows like the sun. glowing yellow on the outsides which fads to a bright orange in the middle. nice white head and a lot of lacing.
S~ earthy pine, all kinds of citrus, and a little bit of that delicious vomit smell. in the best way possible of course haha.
T~ pretty much follows the nose and reminds me a lot of Enjoy By and Bitter Valentine. Nelson must play a huge roll in those brews. the citrus opens up even more here with lots of tropical guava, mango, and papaya.
M~ i should really just start giving the mouthfeel for all HF brews a 5 lol. well maybe except for BoT haha. anyway... amazing carbonation, smooth as can be and super refreshing.
O~ Nelson the boy who threw up the earth haha. i really enjoy that vomity, earthy pine in IPA’s. i now believe i know where that comes from but i could still be totally wrong lol. this is definitely one of my favorite hoppy HF brews (i might say that too much lol) but in my defense i don’t usually enjoy (by) single hop pales/IPA’s. this is surly amazing though, go for it! hopscotch (11236) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 26, 2017
Draft... Pours murky and golden with a mid-sized, frothy, white head. Thick lacing. Fantastic retention. No nose - what’s up with that? Maybe some sweet, crackery, pale malts, but that’s about it. Light-bodied with airy carbonation. The flavor offers fantastic balance. Plenty of hop flavor and just enough bitterness to tame the crackery sweetness. There are some citrus rind-like notes her as well. Crisp, lightly bitter finish. SHIG (4964) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - DEC 26, 2016
Draft: Poured a yellow straw with white head. Aroma is super nice hops nose. Taste nice mix of citrus fruit hops. Alpha10 (830) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 14, 2016
2016/09/10- Pours hazy pale gold with a foamy white head that quickly reduces and leaves moderately splotchy lacing. Aroma is ripe stone fruit, raw honey, floral notes and earthy, slightly dank hops. Taste follows nose; ripe stone fruit and tropical fruits, honey as floral/ earthy/dank hops. Mouthfeel is medium with biting carbonation and a juicy, moderately bitter, lightly drying finish. Nicely balanced.

750 mL growler from Corbet on his trip. Thanks man. The pour is a dirty golden yellow with a thinner dense cap of white foam that falls to a film leaving awesome lace. The aroma is pretty good. There is a nice hoppiness up front. There is a light juiciness and a little zip with it. I like it. The flavor is good as well. Nice and juicy with a hint of funk and a beautiful bitter and floral lingering out the back end. Damn this is good. The mouth feel is incredible. It’s got a thickness not really found in pale ales with a brighter carbonation and a lovely hitter and floral hoppy finish. This is excellent. Damn do I love the farm.

From a growler acquired on August 20, 2016. It is a hazy, cloudy pale yellow pour with a modest white foamy head that fades a little. Notable citrus, tropical fruit, pineapple, and lemon zest esters with the toasted bread hovering around the back ground. Medium to full body. IN the taste the citrus and fruity characters are less in your face but they do present themselves with a slightly more noticeable toasted biscuit and bread note. Juicy and semi[-dry finish. A very good beer for hop heads. furthur (1229) - Eagle River, Alaska, USA - AUG 18, 2016
Draft at anchorage brewing, yellow beer, nice white head. Aroma grapefruit malt and lychee, resin. Taste is grapefruit, malt, lemon orange, resin. Palate is light, carbonation average. daknole (11402) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JAN 28, 2016
Pale yellow, lightly cloudy. Bright white head. Delicious! Tropical fruits, dank, grassy, soft abs fluffy on the tongue. Love this beer. AdmiralVernon (1200) - SWEDEN - JAN 13, 2016
Backlog 6/8 -15
A bit "greenish" and cloudy. White head. Smell and taste of yeast. Quite bitter, loads of Nelson hops, tropical fruits, grapefruit. O: Decent, not to crazy about it. rodenbach99 (4678) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 6, 2016
En fût au Blackpack. Un liquide jaune paille. Un nez et une bouche tout en Nelson Sauvin soit de la pisse de chat tout comme des sauvignon blanc qui ont manqué de maturation sur les vignes. Une buvabilité incroyable comme presque tous les produits de Hill Farmstead.
