More fresh HF from bwmichaud.

There really is a "house character" to the beers of Hill Farmstead. Each new style seems to always carry a distinct element of comparison with the hoppy variations having the most blatant "Hill Farmstead terrior". It's the way the hops are integrated and the shining minerality that opens on the palate. These beers sing volumes and can usually be picked our of a crowed if need be. Harlan is no different.

Boarding on orange in color, the beer's haze is a welcomed sight. Rich aromas of tropical fruits and tart citrus pour out from the bottle. Not too dank and not overly resinous, in fact the beer is subdued on the hop bombardment and more expressive with enticing aromatics and balance. Very simple but not a flaw to be found.

Dried mangos slices were the first thing that came to mind. Not too sweet on the fruit but there was a distinct tropical flavor. Nutty and even a bit on the dry side with that mineral mid-palate that was felt long after the beer was swallowed. Such a pleasurable beer to drink for the balance was something to really admire.

This style of ipa is just what I look for. Lots of aromatics, not overly grassy or full of overstepped tea flavors, just well integrated and finishing dry.
