On tap at the Blackback Pub. This was poured into a tulip. The appearance was a hazy burnt yellow/orange color with an ever so slight transparency about it. Some carbonation could be seen to fill a one finger white foamy head. Speckled lacing ran here and there around the glass. The smell started started off with some full bittersweet citrus, sweet grass, "iced" pulp and rind, malts underneath. The taste was basically the same with a subtle sweet citrus malt aftertaste and finish. The finish is semi-dry but nice. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a pretty good sessionability about it. Carbonation rides good - fairly low, enough bitterness still nothing overbearing. Overall, whale finally slain, damn good, and would definitely have again.

Growler from the brewery. A light, slightly hazy, silky-smooth pale ale that makes for pretty easy drinking. The aroma was all floral hops with a hint of citrus, and the flavor was a great mix of grain and hops. The bitterness was stronger than I was used to for Hill Farmstead, and I think it would have improved the beer if it was half as bitter. Still, 32ozs of this went down dangerously easily -- its delicious stuff.

En ft la brasserie. On me sert une coupe que je ne me lasse pas dadmirer. Une belle coupe orange, vivante, ptillante, vigoureuse et qui prsente une paisse couche de mousse blanche, semblable la neige qui couvre les champs de la valle du Richelieu. Cest vraiment superbe! Nez de riches cultivars et dun houblon balanc par cette levure saison que seul Shaun manie de la sorte! Crmeuse, douce, vive, balance et parfaitement quilibre, je suis charm. Magnifique quilibre entre les malts qui pavent le chemin aux houblons mi rsineux mi fruits. Cest soyeux et ample. Une parfaite reprsentante de son style!

Draft at Fools Gold, 12/5/15. Murky yellowish color with a decent amount of lace. Lemon/citrus, a bit of spice, done herbal notes as well. Fairly dry but with a decent balancing act from the spice and light sweetness. Quite tasty, though not quite as good as what they usually do with this style.

Tap, at the brewery. Murky yet bright, honeyed gold. Frothy, messy, sticky white head. Lots of citrus hop. Grapefruit pith. Grapefruit juice. Hint of lemongrass. Vanilla ice cream malts. Taste is citrus pith bitter. Some soft dryness. Smooth, fairly full body. Bitter finish, with a light dry close. Delicious.

750 mL growler . Originally reviewed 6/12/2013. Very hazy golden orange. Small white head that lingers. Thin layer of foam rests atop the beer. Bright citrus hop aroma. Grainy malt. Mostly hops. Strong citrus hop flavor. Grapefruit and slightly tropical flavor. Grains behind it with almost no sweetness. The slightest hop bitterness. Oily hop flavor lingers on the palate Light bodied and quite drinkable. Medium carbonation. Another great pale. Very tasty, clean, and drinkable as hell.

bigda83 (854) - Jamestown, New York, USA - OCT 8, 2015
Draft at Reservoir. Poured a bright yellow, fairly clear, foamy white head. Aroma of tropical fruits, grassy, herbal, slight floral hints. Flavor had some mango, lemon, grass, and herbal. Light body and slick texture to it. Bubbly carbonation and really smooth and slick finish. Another hoppy hit from HF.

Stoned99 (1502) - St-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 28, 2015
750ml 3 days old growler from the brewery. Aroma: tropical fruits, grassy hops. App: hazy golden with thick white head and good retention considering this is 3 days old. And also leaving lacing. Taste and palate: fruity and herbacy in mouth, resinous, dry medium bitter finish. Overall: great. Pretty much the same as their other IPAs but more clean and less hoppy.
