Shared by ejyoung, poured into a tulip.
Deep tangerine, cloudy, and topped with a pillowy head of pure white. Pockets of large, sticky bubbles explode randomly, receding very slowly and leaving marshmallow fluff-like lacing on the glass.
Bright, snappy nose. Smells almost bitter, packed with citrus pith. Campari, maybe. A little lemon, a little grass, a touch of alcohol. Not much malt.
More malt in the flavor, in the form of sweet honey and burnt sugar. Nice floral qualities have met the citrus bitterness, lavender, maybe. Orange juice, grass, a touch of lemon. The swallow brings a bigger blast of bitter citrus that lingers
Silky yet light body, gentle on the tongue. Maybe a notch under medium-light, soft nudges of carbonation. Just a hint of alcohol heat.
Very tasty and well-balanced, but maybe not on the same level as Hill Farmstead’s other DIPAs. Doesn’t have the same dank, complex hops.

750ml growler poured into a tulip.
A- Golden orange pour with a nice haze. Two fingers of white foam. Moderate lacing on the glass after each sip.
S- Strong fruit and pine scents. Really picking up a grapefruit scent with other citrus fruits present. Moderate hops smell but not overwhelming.
T- Nice citrus taste. Grapefruit notes jump out right away, and linger in the aftertaste as well. Other tropical/citrus fruits coming through after the initial grapefruit upfront. A perfect amount of bitterness detected, definitely well balance and not too hoppy.
M- Dry, light to medium bodied mouthfeel. Nice citrusy/bitter aftertaste.
O- This is an excellent DIPA. Very smooth and easy drinking. Does not drink like 8% at all. Love the great balance of citrus, earthiness, and hops. Would love to be able to have this all the time. Drinks excellent in the FL summer heat.
