look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Growler to worthy sniffer

A:golden yellow honey color with bright white heavy head totally opaque

S: when it is first poured it smells like a tropical hop paradise this pungency fades a little but it remains

T: first of all it tastes mainly as described like grapefruit so tip if the cap to Sean there. It is tart and juicy with lots of hop bitterness in the finish but it tastes like a just ate a grapefruit with that harsh tart sour aftertaste that lasts for awhile

M: smooth and somewhat oily with a light amount of carbonation that compliments the bitterness well.

O: I really like this both as an ipa and because it tastes like grapefruit plus it smells amazing its a great beer if you can get a hold of it hill farmstead does it again I'm convinced they brew nothing but greatness

Serving type: growler

4.43/5  rDev -2.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Pours hazy and like grapefruit juice. Yellow and with a thin white head of foam that fell pretty fast. Leaves some lace. Nose is citrus! Orange, grapefruit and a little sweet grass. The malt peeks it's head out with a touch of sweetness on the nose. It drinks lovely. Not a hint of alcohol on the palate. Just beautiful citrus. sweet orange, sweet earth, a touch fo grapefruit and some grass. Finishes with a perfect bitter that does not reside too long and that reminds you to take one last notice of all that fruit. Malt is a bit of weight on the palate but has a sweetness that seems to come out of no where and so delicately. Drinks clear and fruity and finishes dry but with a bit of tartness to keep your mouth watering long into the finish.

Another fabulous beer from Hill Farmstead.

Just picked up yesterday from the brewery.

Poured from the 22 oz.bottle into a Hill Farmstead snifter.

a: Hazy gold with an inch tall head which receded to rocky surface foam and dense lacing.

s: Citrus

t: Juicy citrus over a very smooth medium malt base.

m: Light on the tongue but with great body.

o: Great DIPA, nicely citrus juice-dominated. Reminiscent of Stone Enjoy By at its best.

Serving type: bottle
