Poured from a 750 mL growler into an enlarged snifter. This was filled at the brewery a week ago today.

A: Pours a very hazy apricot and leaves a fluffy couple fingers of white head which take a while to fade, leaving some white atop the beer. (4.5)

S: Juicy citrus, tropical fruits, some floral hops, a touch of spruce, and some creamsicle. Full of delicious fruit flavors, no off flavors at all. (4.75)

T: Big grapefruit, pineapple, apricots, a bit of spruce, some grassy/earthy notes. Very drinkable, full of hoppy deliciousness. (4.75)

M: Medium, slightly creamy body, medium carb with some juiciness in the body. (4.5)

O: A really well done, aggressively hoppy (especially citrus and tropical) IPA that is very drinkable. Hopheads will definitely enjoy this one, as did I. (4.75)

Hazy, unfiltered, tropical, low carbonation and lacing. Delicious member of the S&S line.

Poured from a 750mL growler into a Hill Farmstead Stemmed balloon glass. Bottled yesterday at the brewery.

Pours a deep orange, hazy unfiltered body with a generous white head, reducing fairly quickly but leaving blotchy white lacing.

Bright, fresh, tropical aromas shine through the foam - pineapple, fresh citrus, raw hops, slight buttery aromas come through at times.

On the tongue is an explosion of fresh hops, a nice combination of juicy tropical fruits and delicious dank, resinous zing. Citrus, grapefruit, pineapple. Malt backbone is there -this makes for a nice, medium body with medium-low carbonation.

I didn't expect anything less from HF - where some of the best IPAs in the world are brewed. Perfectly balanced, super flavorful, and an absolute enjoyment to drink.
