2L growler poured into a Hill Farmstead tasting glass.

A~ glowing neon yellow, nice fat fluffy head and some lacing.

S~ bright earth, pine and grass. Smells just like Vermont on this rainy day. Followed by a nice amount of citrus. Mostly unripe orange and lemon.

T~ perfectly follows the nose with way more hop bitterness. The hoppy eathyness kind of takes over the citrus and transforms your palett from sweet to bitter in no time at all.

M~ great carbonation of course, how many times do I have to say that haha. Very smooth and unbelievably refreshing!

O~ an all around perfect 4! Complex, yet straight forward. I could drink this all day, perfect ABV and once again as refreshing as could be.

Serving type: growler

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Growler filled 9/1, consumed 9/4.

Appearance: Bright deep yellow with a nice big-bubbled white head.

Nose: Grassy, cheesy, slightly medicinal, tons of orange rind and grapefruit pith. Light touch of toasted wheat crusts underneath.

Taste: Most of the Amarillo character comes through in the nose, this is an excellent aroma hop. The flavor is a little bit more subdued, but there's still plenty of herbaceous spiciness and grassy notes accented by a light white bread maltiness.

Mouthfeel: Effervescent, clean mouthfeel. Easy drinking, no issue putting down a growler of this.

Overall: An excellent showcase of a really versatile hop. Complex and unique aromas and an infinitely drinkable refined flavor make this a very nice pale ale.

Serving type: growler
