Served on tap at the Black Back in Waterbury.
Serves up a bright and hazy honey color with a little bit of frothy head.
Smells of Columbus hops quite a bit. Very nice aroma.
Taste is hoppy, very little bitterness. But mellow and refined. Not a hop bomb.
Mouthfeel is solid and inviting for more sips.
Overally this was a slightly more subtle IPA from Hill Farmstead.

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.

Had 4oz pour from growler into tulip glass

A-It pours hazy golden yellow with a thick white head.

S-The nose is fresh, juicy, orange, tangerine, mango, grapefruit and sherbet.

T-The taste is light toast, orange, grapefruit, sherbet, earth, straw, hay, pine, grass and varnish.

M-Mouthfeel has a medium body and fine carbonation. Brilliant balance.

O-Overall a great awesome IPA so glad to have finally tried a HF.
