4.75/5 rDev +4.2%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75
Poured from a 750ml Hill Farmstead growler into a Hill Farmstead wine glass.
Color is a hazy honey with a lacey white head 1.5 fingers high.
Smell is ridiculous. Citrus, especially lemon, crisp.
Taste is right in line with aromas. Delicious, refreshing citrus hops with very little bitterness.
Mouthfeel is lots of tiny tiny bubbles on my tongue, finishes clean.
Overall, flat out amazing douple IPA. Hides the ABV totally. Quenching, refreshing, delicious.
Serving type: growler

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.
