On-tap at Parker Pie and HF Harvest Fest 2012 into HF wine glass and pint glass (at Parker Pie).
Pours a mirky golden yellow color, white head, thin collar, spotty lace. Aroma is hop-forward without being over-the-hop, light fruity sweetness, some resin in there too. Flavor is grapefruit, pine, and citrus. Hoppy yet smooth...not a palate-wrecker...very well-done. Light toward medium body, good carbonation, oily hoppy finish.
Easier to drink then S&S #4 and I think I enjoyed this one a bit more as well. Very easy to drink for 7.8% and the perfect balance of hops to not kill me after one or two glasses. Great stuff!
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 (4408) - 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 (7483) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - AUG 30, 2017
Where and how: Vermont – restaurant, listed @ 8.1%DiarmaidBHK (5917) - 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 (6739) - 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.

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 (1719) - DOVER, Delaware, USA - JUN 30, 2017
Odd aroma w/ a cool pale gold pour. It’s not overly bitter. Decent overall! kaser (6382) - 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 (1665) - 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.
