750ml growler poured into a sampling glass.

Pours a nice amber color with a small white head, nose is fruity, pine and well, classic simcoe.

Taste is awesome its super fresh and fruity, mango and grapefruit all over the place. Mothfeel is smooth and creamy

I think this is there best Pale Ale besides the Abner.. This beer is about 5.5% alcohol and the hops are intense.. It has a very light yellow look to it.. Smooth as heck this beer.. One of the best pale ale's i've had... Every beer I had from Hill Farmstead has been on point.. I put this among there best beers..CHEERS to this beer...

big thanks to baconsausage for this

pour is a dirty golden yellow and orange. fluffy white head with lacing running down the sides. great retention.

light pine with a balanced dose of citrus

a great combo of pine and citrus blending with a bread like malty backbone. the finish really brings out the pine as it lingers in the mouth.

nice moderate to mild carbonation. body is light and easy without feeling thin.

a delicious pale ale with a near perfect representation of simcoe

4.33/5  rDev +1.6%

Pours a hazy, light, golden straw color with a half inch off-white, frothy, soft head. Some lacing lingers on the edge of the glass. Can really smell and taste the simcoe hops. Earthy, piney, slight citrus and apricot flavors can be detected throughout. A hint of the malts linger in the background. The mouthfeel is just spectacular. Smooth, not overly bitter. A perfect balance between light and medium body. A great example of the style by simply utilizing a single hop variety.
