4.45/5 rDev -0.7%
Growler thanks to m100, poured into a snifter.
A: Pours a very hazy orange, with a half inch white head. Very sticky lacing.
S: Very tropical smelling. Pineapple, grapefruit, orange. Very nice.
T: Loads of citrus up front. Bitterness cuts the tropical fruit, but it still manages to finish sweet. Slight alcohol taste at the end, but subtle for such a big DIPA.
M: Creamy, full bodied brew. Carbonation is just right.
O: Another very solid offering from HF. I continue to be extremely impressed with their IPA/DIPAs, and this one is near the top.

750ml poptop Growler poured into a Duvel tulip.
Pours a hazy yellow to orange color with a small white head. Nose is licorice, fruit and a light earthy hop.
Taste is all tangarine juice, citrus and bright fruit. Super tasty and hoppy but not too bitter but super drinkable. Very good beer kind of out of nowhere too.

Growler poured into a GI tulip
A - Golden, hazy yellow. Has a nice head that settled down to a rocky layer of foam.
S - Light honey sweetness mixed in with tropical fruits of tangerine and pineapple
T - Light honey sweetness hits the palate first. Then, there is a mix of tropical flavors with pineapple and orange. Next, on the finish, the is a slight bitter pine that cuts through that I didn't notice in the nose. Overall, nicely flavored and balanced IIPA that brings a nice mix of flavors.
MF - Light body overall but has plenty of carbonation that gives this a nice, thick mouthfeel. This actually works out well for the beer as it makes it easy to drink while still having a nice thick body you expect from the style.
O - Overall, a solid DIPA from Hill Farmstead. I was really impressed by the mouthfeel and the array of hops t hat show themselves is this one.

Enjoyed on tap at the Black Back pub. Cloudy grapefruit coloured body. Apparently with rice and Brett. A good mouthfeel. Lots of orange citrusy taste. Some tropcal fruit.Very smooth drinker. Complex and good drinkability. I would like to try it again.

On tap at Willard's Tap House. Served in a Unibroue tulip.
Appearance - Very hazy orange. Nearly completely opaque. Nice fluffy white head that leaves some lovely lacing.
Smell - Tropical fruit hop aroma. Floral, too. Hefty sweet malt aroma as well.
Taste - Juicy tropical fruits. Orange and mango. Sugary malts back it up. Maybe a touch too sweet. Bitter finish.
Mouthfeel - A bit heavy. Just a bit too sweet and just a bit too bitter. Otherwise, quite nice.
Overall - A tasty treat to find in Florida. Maybe not Hill Farmstead's best IPA, but better than nearly everything down here.

Inflatablechair busted out this bottle (really this is a 750 growler) recently... very cool Sam... excellent.
Pours a hazed pale orange... fluffy white head with good lacing and retention.
Nose is like a tropical fruit bowl... smells pretty sweet... the fruity hops punctuate that sweetness.
Flavor is fantastic mix of tangerine.... light pineapple and melon.. definitely fresh hoppiness, but I think the malts are a touch heavy, though they really help carry the hops. Not nearly as bitter as most DIPAs, instead the flavor hops whallop the palate.
Body is a solid medium with a nice prickly carbonation.
Thanks again Sam... I really liked this one.

Served in a 10oz snifter for $6.50
[A] Arrives with a bright white finger of fluffy foamy head resting above an orange creamcicle colored body. Light orange with a pale white softness. Opaque as all of Shaun's IPAs are. Lacing in thin sedimentary layers, connected every so often by a few craggily strands.
[S] Bitter orange and white grapefruit. Non-descript malt bill. High gravity is evident but not offensive. Straightforward.
[T] Bright citrus flavored hops with near bracing bitterness. Fleeting melon-like flavors poke thru every once in a while on the finish. Spiked honeydew and cantaloupe.
[M] Creamy smooth initially with a firm persistent carbonation immediately after - and thru to the finish. Semi-fine and moderately coarse. Medium body, leans dry.
[O] Man, the grading curve sure is tough for Hill Farmstead IPAs... To put it into perspective: Nor is probably better than 98% of DIPAs out there - but it doesnt even make Top 5 hop-centric beers in Hill Farmstead's portfolio.

Thanks to SneezyAchew for the trade.
Pours a cloudy gold with a big 3-4 finger white creamy head.
Smells wonderful! Big citrus notes with some grapefruit and a great citrus peel. Bursting with aroma.
Taste follows the nose, but is a bit more subdued. Big citrus notes with a touch of caramel sweetness, but definitely hop forward. Alcohol shows through pretty boldly towards the end and it finishes very bitter and dry.
Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy with low carbonation levels.
The masters of the IPA strike again. It's not my favorite by them due to the boldness of the boozy flavor, but still top notch. Glad I got to try it.
