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.

From notes

Appearance: It has a beautiful deep golden/orange color to it. It has a nice off-white head that dies down moderately and leaves some nice lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of citrus, mango, peaches, floral undertones, some pine resins and sweet bready/buiscuity malts.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has citrus, mango, peaches (more prevalent here), bitter pine resins, some floral hops and bready/buiscuity malts.

Mouthfeel: It has a low/med carbonation with a very nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied by great flavors and aromas. Fantastic IPA!

Serving type: gowler
