One of my favorites from Hill Farmstead. Always fill my fridge with growlers when they brew it!

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A - hazy marigold in color. Thick pearly white foam with decent retention. Leaves spatters of lacing against the hill farmstead stemware.

S - a bit tight upon first few sniffs but a few good swirls and some time to warm it opens up nicely. Notes of sweet orange peel, zippy lime, grapefruit pulp, and hints of unripe mango. An undercurrent of earthy pine and peppery spice add depth to the nose.

T - simple malt profile of crusty bread. Lime zest is the dominate flavor with strong grapefruit rind bitterness plays off notes of pine needles intensifying the bitterness. some tropical fruit undertones of papaya and mango. Finish is crisp and dry with just a hint of lingering bitterness.

M - soft and pillowy texture. Medium carbonation.

O - solid ipa. Love the mouthfeel on this one. Really make the difference.
