4.44/5 rDev -1.6%
On tap at Blackback Pub in Waterbury, VT. Served in a 12 oz tulip glass. Consumed on 11/1.
A - Light orange in color. Cloudy with a bright white head. No lacing. Moderate carbonation.
S - Extremely fragrant. Orange, pine, pineapple, and fresh hops.
T - Somewhat tart, mandarin/orange, lemon and apricot flavor. More noticeable malt backbone.
M - Creamy with a medium body. Nice tingle throughout mouth. Standard HF quality.
O - Very very good, but preferred Harlan (consumed same evening), although Susan is higher rating. Like all HF products, it is a must try.

Poured from a growler into my Lawson's snifter.
A: Hazy, orange/golden color with a nice white head. Looks creamy.
S: Wonderful citrus/tropical smells with a hint of grassiness at the end.
T: Taste is not as intense as the smell. Amazing citrus(grapefruit) and mango taste. A little floral too.
M: Medium bodied with little carbonation. Creamy/oily mouthfeel.
O: Another home run from Hill Farmstead! Delicious hop profile.

Thanks so much for sending this to me, baconsausage!
Cloudy, hazy, murky dark orange, but nearly a light brown because of all the residual sediment. This leaves the glass very messy with sheets of sticky irregular lacing all the way down. Gorgeous IPA, and unique in it's incredible lack of clarity. Is that due to a wheat addition?
Stinging citrus notes abound in this IPA--lots of grapefruit flesh and zest, juicy orange and mango, and a bit of pine sap. There's a touch of a sweet malt character underlying the fruit, but this is simply, yet outrageously citrus-forward.
The flavor is similar to the aroma, with huge amounts of grapefruit and pineapple making up the abundance of the flavors' notes, along with an assertive, yet complementary earthy bitterness that lingers on the back end. Extraordinary.
Medium bodied with moderate to high, yet slightly creamy, carbonation. Marvelously drinkable.
An exceptional IPA. In the upper echelon of IPAs and my favorite from Hill Farmstead.
