750ml growler purchased at the brewery on 8-8-13. Poured into a Sam Adams 'perfect pint' glass.
AP: Colour reminds me of orange or peach marmalade or fruit spreads. Looks rather chewy for an APA, like it has a good malty body to it. Head poured a fluffy white 1" that settled down to 1/4" with minimal lacing on the sides when the glass was tilted so good head retention.
AR: Bready (like toasted baguette) and biscuit malts with a hint of caramel malt. Grapefruit and pine hop aromas. There's more fruity aromas but it's like they're trying to hide from you instead of boldly making their presence known. Peach, nectarine, tangerine and guava are what I'm getting out of this after several more whiffs.
T: The malts flavours are like dinner rolls and chewy grainy bread loaf. Peach and apricot fruits mostly towards the front end with a slightly bitter lemony bite at the finish, reminding me of a Berliner Weiss. A little bit of pine and grapefruit on the lingering aftertaste.
M: Mildy carbonated, medium body, slightly dry finish.
OV: As with Susan, this is a very solid and high quality beer that I would drink regularly if I was able to do so. However, this beer also didn't 'blow my mind' and while I think it's very good, to me it's not quite World Class. I am glad I got to try this.

Great pour, heavy nose.
Appearance looks like a double. Good head but disappears within minutes.
Taste -floral notes with Piney finish but as it sits the pine gets lost.
One would think it has a higher abv it is only 5.2
Overall great beer excited to try more from this brewery.

Pours a hazed orange color with a white head. Aroma is piney and full of tropical fruits. The taste is also tropical, lots of pith, pine, pineapple, papaya. The taste is very fruity and hoppy. Nice pine, resin, mild tropical punch, light citrus. Refreshing take on a pale. Light body, light to medium carbonation, slightly drying hop finish. Overall, this is a great brew, thx to K0IZ for the pickup.

In a tulip this beer was a hazy orange color. There was a medium-sized white head and an abundance of lace.
Very much citrus for aroma. Tinge of pine. Sweet malt.
What a taste! Grapefruit, tropical fruit, a bit of pine, some grassy hops. Bready.
A nice hoppy beer, but still somewhat restrained.
The first Hill Farmstead beer I've tried. Am looking forward to many more.

On tap at the Farmhouse Tap & Grill in Burlington, VT. Pours a glowing ruby tinged amber, under a delicate off white head, tiny bubble film. collar and respectable sheeting, then well developed fine lacing. Nice looking ale.
Soft and mild pine infused nose.
Respectable pale, packing a better then average hop package.
Nice pale, moderate fruit, ample malt, counter balancing a gritty hoppy finish. Tight, flavorful and enjoyable. I'd love to be able to order another and another.

Poured from a growler into my Hill Farmstead stem glass.
A: A Beautiful yellow orange with no head. Cloudy, but perfectly uniform.
S: Belgian, funk, sour and hops with some pine on the end. Absolutely the best smell from a non-stout yet.
T: Orange, and some lemon, incredibly balanced with hops on the end.
M: Pine, hops, and some sour funk on the end of the gulp.
O: Wow, this is my first hill farmstead after the February 18th, 2012 release and it’s amazing. Absolutely one of the best beer’s I’ve ever had. A

Had on tap at the Three Penny Tap Room
Appearance: 1/4 inch head, orange-yellow in color, hazy, moderate carbonation
Smell: toasted malt, and tropical citrus hops
Taste: pineapple, tropical fruit, citrus hops, and light toasted malt in the back to balance the beer out nicely
Mouthfeel: medium carbonation, light bodied, slightly bitter with some sweetness built in.
Overall: Another Hill Farmstead beer where the citrus just jumps. If all hops jumped like this, I could turn into a hop head. This certainly tastes more like a well crafted IPA than a pale ale. It may be my favorite pale ale. This is a bitter beer, but not overly so. Just really flavorful.

Pours a hazy yellow orange coor with a white head leaving some good lacing. Nose jumps out pretty well with all sort of citrus, bitter grapefruit with a little dankness and some biscuity character. Taste opens up immediately with hops, grapefruit at first, but I also get some mango and orange coming through too. Malt is almost not even present save for the faintest bit of bread hidden beneath all the hops. A touch heftier than light bodied with a little under medium carbonation levels. I fill up a growler with this regularly if I could.
