Yay, a new Hill Farmstead DIPA treat!

A: Pours hazy orange with nearly 2 fingers of white fluffy head. Moderately good head retention, leaves a ton of lacing.

S: Fresh hop juice. HUGE tropical fruits: Pineapple, mango, a little grapefruit. Lots of pine, some floral notes, and just a touch of herbal dankness. Pungent with a sweet candy aroma in the background. Can't wait to get into this one.

T: For the first time ever, a HFS beer doesn't taste as good as the nose. More herbal and dank than the nose suggested, the pine and grapefruit are more forefront. Moderate to light bitterness for the style. Touch of sweetness, though it does have a slight candy quality. Dry and piney finish.

M: Medium body, moderate to slightly high carbonation. Crisp finish. Extremely resinous. Not all that clean, though fairly drinkable for a 9% DIPA.

O: This is probably the least favorite DIPA I've had from Shaun... though it's still damned good and better than what most brew.

Fantastic fresh growler from today's Hill Farmstead release.

Incredible appearance that is a cloudy yellow hay with degrees of radiance. Grapefruit in color. Just incredible.

Smeels are Floral, grapefruit, lemony, incredibly balanced. Slightly buttery as well. Very bright.

Super slick mouthfeel in a very good way. The head is like cake batter and just lingers. Incredible taste - hops are exploding. Super creamy, buttery. Really well balanced.

As a non IPA person this is amazing. On par with any double IPA available
