From 07/07/11 notes. 750ml growler shared by Thorpe429; thanks Mike, always interested in trying more beers from these guys. Poured into a Fantome tulip.

a - Pour a hazy yellow-golden color with one inch of white head and moderate carbonation evident. Light lacing on the glass, looks pretty nice.

s - Smells of tropical fruits, citrus hops, pine hops, and light floral notes. Lots of fruit, I found it pretty enjoyable.

t - Tastes same as the nose, with some moderate bitterness. Pine hops, citrus hops, and some tropical fruits.

m - Medium body and moderate carbonation. Moderate bitterness up front and then especially in the aftertaste.

o - Overall I thought this was a really nice DIPA from Hill Farmstead, though I personally prefer Ephraim. Would certainly have it again.

A: Cloudy dark amber in color. Forms a huge, off-white, bubbly head. Good retention and some light lacing.

S: Hugely aromatic. Oranges, mandarine, tropical fruit, passion fruit. Sweet tropical fruit.

T: Reminiscent of the aroma, but, unfortunately, toned down a bit. Light to mild sweetness. Orange, citrus, and tropical fruit with a mild-moderate bitterness.

M: Medium to heavy bodied. Light to medium carbonation. Somewhat creamy or velvety.

O: A very good beer. Absolutely drinkable, though I did find the aroma to be more inviting than the flavor itself, but this is a minor flaw.
