I haven't reviewed very many beers, but I felt very compelled to do so for this one. Thanks to jsvt for sending a very fresh growler of this.

A - Pours a very hazy, golden yellow with a nice two finger off white head that lingered to the very end.

S - As everyone has been quick to point out, the aroma on this bad boy is incredible! It's exploding with citrus and tropical fruits at every turn. Orange zest, grapefruit, pineapple and piney hop notes. Hill Farmstead really nailed the smell on this IPA.

T - Much of what is present in the nose is exactly what you get upon your first sip of this perfectly crafted brew. Again, citrus and tropical flavors dance all over my tongue. Orange rind, lemon zest, pineapple, mango and maybe some peach. This is all finished up on the backend with a resinous piney bitterness. It's all balanced perfectly. Very drinkable.

M - not overly carbonated. A think mouthfeel which adds to the body. Not overly bitter.

O - This has definitely moved to the top of my list when it comes to IPA's. I highly recommend seeking this out and trying it for yourself.
