4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma: lots of juicy grapefruit and tropical fruit, floral hops, some resin and pine. Some light malts, toast, and honey linger in the background. Pours a hazy straw/yellow color, white head with good retention and lacing. Amazing hop profile - tons of citrus, mango, and some pineapple. Sticky resin and some orange as well, and a pleasant malt presence backing up the hops. Just enough cereal grains and a touch of honey to slightly tame the hops. Bitterness is medium-high, but well controlled and no astringent finish. Light-medium body, medium carbonation, smooth and dry finish. Wow, an excellent brew!
Can from the source. Very pale cloudy yellow orange with lasting head and full lace. Wicked dank melon pineapple grapefruit aroma. Medium light wicked tropical sweetness with light grapefruit bitterness and tropical fruit pineapple finish. Light body (somehow at 7.8%) very soft medium-low carbo. This is how NE IPA is supposed to be done -- not fizzy, not bready, WICKED FUCKING EXCELLENT. LouisP (630) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 30, 2017
Une bière blonde, avec une bonne carbonatation et une apparence trouble. Au nez, beaucoup de mangues avec l’aspect classique de la senteur un peu florale qui caractérise les bières de HF. En bouche, c’est plutôt amer, et très sucré. C’est plutôt exotique, avec beaucoup d’agrumes, ainsi qu’une touche d’ananas. La texture en bouche m’étonne : c’est fort crémeux, bien rond, me rappelant les meilleures milkshakes IPAs sans lactose ni vanille. Bien aimée! johnnnniee (4457) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 14, 2017
Tap at The Farmhouse Burlington.
Slightly hazy dark yellow with a good sized long lasting head. Rich earthy citrusy grapefruit and pine with bits of sweet bread to counter. Very tasty clean well made brew. Radek Kliber (7501) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - AUG 30, 2017
Where and how: Vermont – restaurant, listed @ 8.1%DiarmaidBHK (6137) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 23, 2017
Aroma funky citrus, fresh mango, alcohol well hidden. Smooth, refined.
Top: large long lived top with some lace on glass walls.
Base: light haze on deep gold
Palate : heavy full bodied, average carbonation, longer finish, average dryness.
Taste:slightly funky, phenolic feel, not the smoothest creation unlike aroma. Mild alcohol heat pops out. Aroma promised much more.
Draft at Armsby Abbey. Pours pineapple yellow with a white head. Leaves trace lacing. Lots of grapefruit on the nose and tongue. Not a ton of bitterness which makes this one very quaffable.

Draft at Harbor Bar. Murky yellow-orange, frothy head, lots of lace. Nice, juicy hop aroma.
Grapefruit and resin. Pineapple. Clean, juicy, and mid-bitter. Really tasty. trapped (3774) - New York, TURKEY - JUL 10, 2017
Draught @ The Jeffrey. Hazy, almost millky beight yellow with small frothy whitish head, very faint dusty citrus peel aroma, medium carbonation, lightly bitter taste with pineaple, and bit of grapefruit, smooth body, longish medium bitter finish. Very very smooth and deceptively easy to drink. skrip (230) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 2, 2017
750ml growler poured into a Hill Farmstead oversized wine glass.
A~ crazy glowing light yellowy orange that gets lighter towards the bottom of the glass. big fluffy white head with a ton of lacing.
S~ a lot of natural earth and grass. some citrus notes, grapefruit, mango, lemon, lime, etc... all followed by a lot of hop presence.
T~ follows the nose with way more earthy pine bitterness that over takes your pallet leaving behind the juiciest tropical blend that seems to linger into a... run on sentence hahaha! (into a...) delicious, mellow, all around perfect IPA.
M~ as smooth as could be. extremely nice carbonation and very refreshing. great summer brew!
O~ might be my favorite of the "regular" IPA S&S series, the black IPA comes first for me though! if you’re in a happy, hoppy mood you can’t get any better than this. i’m gonna call it a fruit beer/IPA lovers dream. jrodooo5 (1748) - DOVER, Delaware, USA - JUN 30, 2017
Odd aroma w/ a cool pale gold pour. It’s not overly bitter. Decent overall! kaser (6430) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 30, 2017
Probably could give this a perfect rating. Nothing wrong with it. Orange cloudy draft pour at Prohibition Pig. Juicy citrus aroma. Taste is juicy citrus perfection.
