3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap. Very hazy gold pour, almost white, white head. Aroma is really quite fruity and pungent, lots of grapefruit, the hops are wet and sticky. Taste is fruity, not particularly bitter, very grapefruity - bitter and citrusy tart at once. Alcohol is not perceptible. Palate is lightly-med carbed with med body. Not a huge fan of the Hill Farmstead Beers; however, I have to give them a B for effort.
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 (7470) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - AUG 30, 2017
Where and how: Vermont – restaurant, listed @ 8.1%DiarmaidBHK (5339) - 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. ben4321 (6607) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUL 21, 2017
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 (3367) - 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.

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 (1688) - DOVER, Delaware, USA - JUN 30, 2017
Odd aroma w/ a cool pale gold pour. It’s not overly bitter. Decent overall! kaser (6364) - 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. fiery1 (1470) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 13, 2017
750ml growler @ Alex’s. Pours a cloudy golden colour with a thin white head. Nose is sweet, fruity, with some dank hop notes. Flavour is pithy, tongue tingling pith bitterness, while fruit and mildly sweet. beerplace (1801) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 13, 2017
750ml growler (thx, Jonathan J.!). Growlered on 2016-04-01. Pours a cloudy blond with a white head. Aroma is dank, tropical fruits. Taste is similar. This one is quite similar to the beers which Twin Sails, Boombox or Superflux brew in BC. Maybe it is just a little bit better balanced than the beers of the mentioned breweries, which is not a surprise taking into account for how long HF brews this. It is definitely not something from the next level of brewing, since, for example, Superflux Colour and Shape b1 and b4 maybe taste even better.
