Hill Farmstead Harlan Pours a hazy orange color with a thick, creamy, off-white head. The lacing is quite good, as is the retention.

Citrus peel, pine and the promise of bitterness fill the aroma.

The flavor begins with a good bit of pine and bitterness, but it softens to reveal grapefruit and other citrus fruit, as well as a hint of sugar from the malt. The citrus is quite bright and vivid. The malt backbone, in general, is lightly sweet, with grain and caramel flavors both represented.

The mouthfeel has a crispness from both the carbonation and bitterness, but the body still manages to feel smooth and creamy.

Hill Farmstead just knows how to make hoppy beers, and I'm beginning to think that maybe Vermont water might also be well-suited to the task in general.

The aroma is aggressively perfume like, floral, pine, with citrus and juicy tropical pineapple.

The flavor follows of dried peach, apricot, citrus, a light bready malt, again those floral notes continue with a dry finish.

A really fantastic brew compared to Edward.

Can't think of anything bad to say about this beer. Had a Centennial afterward for comparison sake and there was none...and I LOVE Centennial. Had 3 other growlers with it but the seal was bad on the Citra so it was flat...bummer.

HF knows what to do with hops.
