32oz growler (Tired Hands) poured into a Hill Farmstead oversized wine glass.

The beer pours a murky, unfiltered, copper color, hues of orange and gold with a big, thick, soapy white head, about 2 fingers high atop the beer that has very good retention and leaves a beautiful network of lace behind. The aroma is great, super dank, herby and grassy, big notes of pine and resinous hop spice that is cut beautifully by tropical fruit and a touch of citrus with only the softest, doughy malt character. The flavors follow well, bitter pine and coniferous character, hop spice, dank grassy and a bit of floral qualities pop up before the malt evens things out a bit. The mouthfeel is great, typical of a Hill Farmstead beer, rich and coating, but soft and gentle with just enough liveliness. The finish is dry and kicks well.

Verdict: A delicious DIPA from Hill Farmstead, great bitterness with a tremendous balance of flavors. It's ripe, juicy but also dank and bitter, wonderful to sip on. It's not the best DIPA he's made, but damn is it tasty.

Thanks to MikeyPNH for scoring this growler for me.

Pours a hazy light golden honey with 2 fingers of thick foamy head. The head slowly dissipates to a light layer of foam that persists.

Smells delicious. Citrusy hops and grass.

Tastes great. The transition from the hoppy deliciousness to the bitter aftertaste is super smooth.

This is another great DIPA from Hill Farmstead. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this to any hop lover.

A - A cloudy Honey yellow with one finger white head.

S - tropical fruits and citrus followed by pine

T - pineapple, citrus, pine and a sweet malt. Perfectly balanced. INCREDIBLE

F - medium bodied and smooth. medium carbonation.

O - This may be the best beer I've ever had. Absolute knock-out! It beats the Heady Topper IMO. I'd love to have it back to back with Pliny The Younger.
