Thanks Fitz for sharing this one. Poured into a standard solo cup, it had a golden orange color, with a thin layer of white foam on the surface, some clusters of larger bubbles clung to the sides of the glass.

Citrusy grapefruit aroma, slightly grassy and pungent with resinous hops.
Taste is also citrus forward, mainly grapefruit that is slightly sweet, a light pale malt presence towards the middle, generally very light and smooth in feel. Light to medium bitterness, it finishes clean and mellow. Very drinkable, but somewhat one dimensional taste-wise. Enjoyed the light body and easy drinkability most of all.

Any better than some of the best local IPA's? Not really, but it's well made and worth trying.

Poured from a growler friends had filled for me 24 hours before this review. Susan pours a hazy honey yellow with a touch of amber mixed in. A moderate creamy head on top slowly fades away leaving behind a nice netted pattern of lace on the glass. I scored appearance a little high because just looking at this beer makes me anticipate the first sip.

The aroma is lemon citrus, a little grapefruit, tropical fruit and a touch of pine. It's a pleasant aroma, but not especially strong.

Each sip of this medium bodied beer is soft and creamy with a mild carbonated fizz. The flavor begins with tropical fruit and orange/grapefruit citrus and some lemon peel. Sweet malt is found in the background and helps balance out the hoppy bitterness. In the middle there's a spicy hint of pepper. It finishes grassy, dry and moderately bitter. Once gone the orange citrus and bitterness lingers on the palate.

Another winning IPA from Hill Farmstead. It's not a hop monster, but has plenty of hop flavor. Not super 'green' as other hoppy beers.
