Big thanks to DaveHack for the hookup o this one. The beer poured out as a nice hazy yellow color with a massive fluffy white head. The smell of citrus fills the air after popping the growler and pouring out into the glass. There is a beautiful soft grapefruit aroma on this. There is a very nice citrusy flavor too with subtle waves of wheat ad grains in there as well. The mouthfeel is soft, light bodied and refreshing. Overall this is a great IPA. Very good stuff.

Big thanks to Michael for the growler. Served in Hill Farmstead stemware. Pours a slightly-hazy orange color with a full, fluffy white head with great retention and lacing.
The nose starts off with some nice bursts of tropical and citrus fruits. As it warms there is a bit more citrus and just a touch of resin. Flavor is stunning, with the perfect bitterness level to complement the hop flavors. Light-medium body and extremely drinkable.
Another hoppy home run from Hill Farmstead.

750 mL growler, served in a HF wine glass.
Pours a hazed golden copper with a dense fluffy white head. Nose has heavy with resiny tropical fruits and earthy pine. Flavor is a little sweeter, with grapefruit rind, pineapple, mango and peach and a dry earthy pine and grassy finish. Medium thick body, soft carbonation and a sticky, bitter finish. Great balance of hops as the Simcoe pine plays nicely with the leafy NZ hop tropical fruitiness. The Riwaka single hop was a little more "exceptional" and a better showcase for that hop, but Susan's subtlety and balance make this much easier to drink.
The smell and overall scores are more of a 4.75 but I refuse to use the new quarter intervals in scores since I never had access to them the previous 6 years of reviewing. Just...whatever.
