very hazy copper with a decent pure-white head that lasts for a while leaving some decent lacing.
very hoppy aroma giving plenty of pine, fresh cut grass, grapefruit and citrus, with a floral kick.
follows the nose being very hoppy, but not bitter. juicy and refreshing with tons of citrus and an herbal, slightly peppery kick that makes it finish quite dry. some pale malt sweetness lies behind everything.
lighter side of medium bodied with ample carbonation and a slightly resiny feel left behind, but little bitter aftertaste.
as an APA, I don't think there is one better. Maine Beer Co.'s Peeper is close though. almost in IPA territory.

A - Murky golden, with a white head that has great retention and excellent lacing.
S/T - Assertive pine hops up front, with grapefruit notes coming in after. Little malt aroma/flavor until it warms up a bit, then a nice caramel malt backbone provides a nice balance for the hops.
M - Thick body, medium carbonation, doesn't finish as crisp as I like in an APA, but does dry out. Very bitter for the style, which I do like.
O - Really drinks like an IPA more than a standard pale. Regardless, its delicious, hoppy, and bitter. Excellent take on the style, glad I had the opportunity to have it.

16 oz pour into a straight pint glass.
Pours a hazy orange Thin white head.
Smells like a classic ipa, piney, resinous, citrus. Light biscuity notes under the hops.
Taste is amazing. Completely hop forward. Malty sweetness tries to shine but is out weighed by hop bitter deliciousness.
Overall I love this beer. I want to see it everywhere and drink it all the time.

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

On draft at Tap and Barrel, Smithtown, NY.
Poured a murky copper hue with a one and a half ding frothy white head. There was very good retention and lacing.
The smell featured waves of resinous citrus and pine.
The taste consisted of a full piney hop atop a subtle soft pale malt. There was a nice lightly sweet doughiness at the finish along with a lingering bitterness.
The mouthfeel was toward the fuller side of the style.
Overall a superior hop forward APA.
