Huge thanks to Prost76 for this one. Reviewed from notes from election night.
Beer pours a hazy orange-yellow with a thin white head. It looks like most of the other HF DIPAs, which is to say "perfect." I rarely care about the appearance of beers, but something about the site HF's hoppy beers is just so appealing and citrusy looking. Like most HF hoppy beers, this one has an incredible citrus aroma that just hits you in the face. Flavor follows the nose, and this one is just incredibly juicy. It's a wonderful balance of sweetness, hoppy and citrus fruit here that all comes together perfectly. The fruitiness of it is really what makes this one a standout. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied with nice carbonation. Overall, another home run from Hill Farmstead. This is one of my favorite hoppy beers from them. It's maybe not quite on the level of Abner and Ephraim, but certainly right in there with S&S4 and Double Galaxy. Just awesome.

Pour is hazed golden yellow with an off white head. Nose is juicy, tropical fruit and citrus, a hint resiny and oily in back. Light grain profile up front and some malt sweetness to balance. Taste has more bitterness than I thought it would, lighter body and softer carbonation. The grain is soft up front, hop driven. Citrus, pine fades to a more leafy herbal note, a strong grapefruit bitterness lingers with a fairly dry finish.

Served on-tap at the Prohibition Pig on 12/27/13, served in a tulip. Reviewed from notes.
Appearance: A pale and hazy orange/gold, with thick creamy head and thick creamy lacing.
Smell: Disappointingly weak. But what I do get is a lot of floral citrus and pine. Apricot comes through prominently too.
Taste: Lightly vinous, bitter, with creamy malts backing up piney hops. Believe it or not, I even got a prominent bubblegum flavor toward the end. Probably from all that yeast that made the beer so hazy. This was really delicious, and the vinous character made it somewhat distinct from the other IPAs I tried on my Vermont trip.
Mouthfeel: Thick and creamy, with a moderate level of carbonation. The beer seemed to stay forever.
Overall: I should have written this when my memory of the beer was clearer, but I do remember this being delicious, even with the weak nose. Glad I got an opportunity to try it.
Serving type: on-tap
