!!50th Review!!
Growler to worthy sniffer

A: thick orangey honey color with small white head completely opaque with nothing going through

S: wow it smells like a tropical fruit paradise there is some hops and maybe a bit of pine fresh too

T:I don't know where to start there are so many delicious flavors lots strong of melon, orange, and other tropical fruits, there is a piney resiny flavor too, but the hop bitterness is still there in the finish and the fruit comes our more as the beer warms

M:great smooth oily resiny feel to it there is some light carbonation for a bite but it goes down really smooth the crispness is there but goes away as the beer warms up

O: this is a good looking wonderful smelling great tasting ipa with a decent mouthfeel made from 3 of my favorite hops I can honestly say this is not only the best ipa I've had from hill farmstead so far but it's one of the best ipas I've ever had quality stuff for sure get it if you can

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 5

A-Pours like fruit juice. Murky, dull orange in color. Nice little head grows and stays put after exhausting some of its stature. Light speckles of lace.

S-Unbelievably potent hop character. Huge tropical Citra notes and I bet the Riwaka isn't dragging ass either. The Simcoe also brings forth more of the abrasive hop aromatics of biting grapefruit and pine. There's some oniony character here and I'm all aboard with it.

T-Pure, unadutered hop extract. The trio of hops gives me a lot to describe. Melon, guava and mango along with some green onion and moss. Peach and pine. Tropical and bright but also dank and bitter. Just a trickle of sweetness before the bitterness burns it away.

M-Long, lingering bitterness.mmedium bodied. Resiny. Chewy hop feel. Moderate carbonation.

O-Easily one of the better beers I have ever had. Need more! The variance of the hop flavors is exquisite. Yeah, another Hill Farmstead beer that easily lives up to its godly status; I should stop being surprised...I've had enough of them to know by now.
