Thanks to BearsonAcid for providing this in a recent trade.
Another treat from Hill Farmstead.
Good looking pint of beer. A somewhat creamy off white head sits atop a slightly hazy peach/orange/amber colored beer. Rings of lace line the glass.
Very nice aroma that certainly screams hops, but also hints to a nice balance ahead (yes, it delivered on this) Juicy citrus, slight green grass and a whiff of light toasted malt..
Wonderful balanced Pale Ale. I could drink this all day long. Frankly, I would love a keg of this for the house. Really a testament to a balanced beer with a nice hop presence. Fruit in front.. Lots of nice bread flavors in the rear. A consistent and wonderful hop bitterness from front to back. This beer screams fresh…. The bread flavors are so inviting it’s wonderful. A touch of yeast at the end.
Really feels unfiltered. I want to say gritty, but I don’t want it to sound like a negative. It isn’t.. Opposite of slick. Just a hint of carbonation.
What a great pale ale. The freshness is unreal. Balance, flavor and feel. Well done.

Poured into HF stemware
A-Frothy white head with some mild retention. Thick lacing that quickly runs down the side of glass. light golden hazy beer.
S-Aroma hits as soon as the growler was opened. Aroma is strong and is a precursor of things to come. Lots of sweet smelling hops. Tropical fruits. Peach, oranges, mango. some grapefruit and faint pine
T-not as sweet as the nose at least at first but may change as it warms. Peach, orange, grapefruit, lemon/lime, some bitterness. flavors really pop as there is something about the beer that makes the flavors very bright and upfront. some maltiness to keep the hops in check. Bit of a bitter finish with some lingering pine and bitterness
M-medium bodied beer with ample carbonation. leaves you with a mouthful of flavor
O-strong showing here easy to see why this breweries beers are in such high demand
