4.49/5 rDev -2.6%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5
A week old, bought at the brewery April 19th.
Poured from the 25.4 oz. bottle into a Tree House snifter
a: Cloudy orange with an inch tall white head which receded to dense patchy surface foam and patterned lacing.
s: Intense citrus and pine.
t: Strong orange/grapefruit citrus and pine resin hop flavor over a solid medium malt base. Bitterness is considerable but only slight bitterness lingers on the tongue. Minor throat burn for a 10.5% ABV.
m; Medium with fine body.
o: A superior DIPA. High ABV is skillfully dealt with. Wonderful sipper with tremendous substance.
Serving type: bottle

4.76/5 rDev +3.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75
Orange yellow in color, nice sticky lace retention. Aroma is a dank, grassy lemon with a juicy grapefruit following. Taste follows the nose except you get so much orange, lemons, limes, a tiny amount of pine and malt finish it off, awesome. Mouthfeel is exceptional as always with a HF brew. Medium body, low carbonation, soft and incredibly smooth.
This is truly world class. Not perfect but incredibly close. So well rounded in terms of it truly being citrus forward with a very light pine/malt base. One of my absolute favorite beers of all time.

4.68/5 rDev +1.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75
750 ml growler
A: Golden yellow, fizzy white head
S: Lemon, grass, earth, herbs, cat pee
T: A lot of the same as the nose. Citrus fruits, lemon, grapefruit, grass. This tastes like a 6-7% beer in my opinion, not a 10.5% one. I'm pretty blown away by the lightness of this beer and how it also contains such a huge and unique yet not overbearing hop punch.
M: So light and easy to drink
O: Hype met. I am thoroughly impressed with my first Hill Farmstead IPA!
