A - murky yellow orange. Typical VT IPA appearance. Lovely.

S - legitimately might have thought this was fruit juice. Amazing tropical notes.

T - same as the nose. Big tropical fruit, citrus, the lightest crackery malts.

M - the legendary Hill Farmstead creamy mouthfeel. Perfect.

O - another Hill masterpiece. Bravo.

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.
