Poured from a 750 ml bomber into a Hill Farmstead stemmed glass.

Appearance is light golden and hazy in body with a thick white frothy head that reduces slowly to leave thick lacing.
Very floral on the nose, lots of pine , citrus and caramel too.
On the tongue is sweet malt, citrus, floral, earthy notes. Some onion-ish notes, slight bitterness on the finish.
Medium body, low carbonation.

Very nice. Not my favorite HF IPA but delicious nonetheless.

On tap at Hill Farmstead in Greensboro Bend, Vermont, filled two growlers of it.

Pours a murky hazy bright golden yellow/orange, with a 1.5 inch head, and a little bit of lacing.

Smells like orange zest, pine, grapefruit, orange juice, pineapple. Juicy as all hell.

This one tastes amazing. The bitterness level is understated, and perfect, just there right at the back, lingering the whole time, reminding you it's an IPA, but on top of that, there's a whole of citrus and tropical fruity goodness, pineapple, orange, and grapefruit. There's really nothing malt-wise in this one.

Susan is light and sprightly, with a very crisp mouthfeel, and a moderate amount of carbonation.

A most excellent IPA, it's crazy how drinkable and easy this one is.
