750 ml poured into Spiegelau glass.
A: Bright golden color with an orange/copper hue. Pours with 2 fingers of white frothy head that reduces slowly and leaves a lot of lacing.
S: Bursting with citrus and pine. Buried underneath of the upfront aroma is a bit if bubblegum sweetness.
T: Flavor hits up front with a lot of grapefruit, orange, lime, and pine. Very good balance.
M: Carbed well, finishes slightly dry.
O: Harlan is a very well balanced IPA, which gives a slight edge to the citrus tones both in flavor and aroma. Solid beer from a solid brewery.

4.5/5 rDev +4.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
L: Super hazy pale yellow with a thick creamy head. Great lacing as well.
A: Big dank, pine resin notes with earthy, garlic undertones and a nice fruity edge. Classic Columbus. The fruity esters from the yeast really amplify the fruity notes from the hops, keeping it from being overly dank. Malt is clean and bready, giving a nice backing to the hop character.
T/M: Firm, sticky bitterness upfront that moves into massive pine resin and hop spice. Citrus notes linger on the palate with a faint breadiness thanks to the very dry finish. Very nice body as well considering the dryness.
Overall, an amazing IPA for those that like columbus. The esters from the yeast play some nice tricks as well, accentuating the fruitier side of hops and creating a very complex aroma and flavor. Delicious.

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.
