Big thanks to Bilco for the growler.
Appearance: Hazy peach-tinged gold. White head starts off huge with loose large bubbles. Drops to a tiny wispy cap and small collar. Sticky lacing. Moderate carbonation on the pour.
Smell: Juicy mango and peach laced with a hint of pineapple. Some backing oily pine. A touch of mint with some backing dank herbal notes. Malt runs a little bready with some mild pale malt sweetness. Nice and clean with some hints of yeasty esters. Fresh flowers. Leafy.
Taste: Solid pine and pith bitterness up front. Juicy mango and peach follow. Soft pale malt sweetness with an almost powdery yeast finish. Hemp seed with some lingering mint. Nicely bitter. Some pith and bright tropical fruit. Oh yeah mango. Some nice backing pineapple. Warms nicely, offering a decent balance with an assertive lingering bitterness.
Mouthfeel: Carries that distinct medium and creamy body I've come to expect from draft Hill Farmstead. Moderate carbonation. Slightly dry on the finish, with a juicy initial sip. Easy drinking, especially for the style.
Overall: Build me a cabin and put this on tap and I'll go Walden.
A nice, if slightly less than mind blowing beer from Hill Farmstead. I really dig the balance and the hop profile. Nicely bitter. Carries all the trademarks of a Hill Farmstead pale ale and that's a mighty fine pedigree.

Pours a nice yellow beer. Nice head, foamy. Nice hoppy smell. Taste pretty good, very bitter and very fresh. A straightforward Double IPA. Very nice body, and nice thickness. Not very memorable, but a really nice beer. Wouldn't mind having more.

64oz growler (Harvest Fest)
New Belgium Globe
A: Hazy as hell golden orange color. About a finger of bright white head. Leaving some sticking lacing sheets. There is some yeast in suspension floating around. Again, so cloudy.
S: Tons of piney grapefruit notes. Very reisinous. Smells so inviting. Low malt bill. Hop bomb. Right in my wheel house.
T: Lots of crazy hop bitterness on tongue. Just really attacking it. Tons of pine and grapefruit. Hop bomb. Low malt bill. I like the lower ABV for a DIPA. Not as sweet with the lower malt too.
M: Medium bodied. Lighter than most DIPAs.
