4.78/5  rDev +3.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 5

Growler driven back from Vermont by me. Also sampled at the Three-Penny, Armsby Abbey, and a sampler at the brewery. Just outstanding every time!

A: Perfect golden straw body with a huge white head. massive lacing.

N: Sharp citrus liquid sunshine nose. I want air freshener that smells like this!

Flavor is incredulous hop juiciness to the nth magnitude! Serious sunshine on my tongue with citrus character on the order of fresh squeezed orange juice.

Mouthfeel is thin, slick, slightly toothstrippy. Medium carb, hides it's ABV well.

Overall is just outstanding! My favorite IPA ever...maybe.

Serving type: growler

look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

Served from a fresh 750ml growler into a HF stemmed Tulip

Review #200

Appearance- Hazy orange with big 2 finger bubbly white head that left great lacing.

Smell- Big tropical fruits, nectarine, peach, tangerine, clementine, mango, pineapple, white grape, light malt background, and a slight hint of booze.

Taste- Big citrusy hops with light grassy/pine notes. Peach, grapes, oranges, earthy floral notes. No hint of booze in taste at all.

Mouthfeel- Well carbonated, with a medium body. No booze heat, very drinkable. Not very bitter, but very fruity.

Overall- A very well-crafted IIPA from Hill Farmstead (obviously). Very good beer that I could drink all day.

Serving type: growler
