What a pleasant suprise from jammalamma, who just kind of sent me this growler. Really appreciate it, Ben! It was filled on May 28th so it was around 9 days old. Really, really cool looking growler, too. Split last night with the La Crosse crew after a great day of mountain biking.
A - A rich, golden amber with a nice creamy white head. Really nice and splotchy lacing along the sides. Beautiful webbed clouds in the center. A nice looking brews.
S - Boom! Citrus, piney hops! Grapefruit, pineapple, large amounts of orange peel. Mango, papaya and star fruit. Dank basement bitterness.
T - Really bitter with a nice citrus backbone. Orange, lemon, pineapple, melon hops. Just a tiny bit malty, but overall really awesome!
M - Citrus tingle with a bitter, drying effect. Really smooth with a nice amount of carbonation.
O - Really, really impressed with this one! Its like Masala Mama meets Pliny, and then they go over to their cousin Abrasive's house for dinner. Really well balanced, smells great and tastes even better. Home run for Hill Farmstead! Looking forward to more of their offerings in the future. Thanks again Ben for this mighty treat!

A: A hazy yellow body with a thick pure white head.
S: Amazing. There is a huge citrus burst in the front end of the aroma. There is a nice mellow caramel/biscuit aroma lingering in the background.
T: A very well balanced IPA despite the 170 IBUs. There is huge citrus, pine, and grassy flavors mixed in the the caramel grains. Well balanced.
M: Thick and buttery body with great carbonation.
O: Amazing beer. Well worth the wait and hunt for this beer.
