What do you expect from Hill Farmstead? It's another near perfect beer. It is well balanced wirh a hop profile that is created with expertise and skill. I will wait in line for an hour to get this beer any day of the week. It's no Abner or Everett, but it's worth every penny spent and every minute in line.

2L growler served in a HF becher glass. Huge thanks to kevanb for the share.

A: Pours a semi-clear golden yellow color with a nice one finger thick white head forming on the pour. It recedes to a thick cap that leaves sticky sheets of lace down the glass.

S: Sweet malts with a nice grassy undertone. Nice berry bit with a tropical fruitiness to it.

T: Wow, what a fruit explosion. Just simcoe and amarillo? Tons of mango, pear and lemon peel with a light grassy bitterness. Biscuit malt sweetness to round it all out. Really nice.

M: Light bodied with a nice, medium carbonation level. Sweet and fruity finish.

O: Super fruity and delicious. I really enjoyed this one and being a big fan of Amarillo really put this one in my wheelhouse.

Pours a very slightly hazy delicious golden orange, a with few floaties in the glass and a single stream of bubbles. Nice just off white 2 finger head reduces quickly to a foamy bubbly collar with good lace.
Smells exotic with tropical fruits, loads of mango, touch of pineapple or star fruit. A dank pine and candy malt base with some grapefruit citrus and hint of spice.

Loads of soft fruits up front maybe not as much as the nose would suggest. Mango and grapefruit. Increadebly well balanced as most Hill Farmsteads are. A nice hops bitter comes through in the middle and gives a little snappy balance to the soft fruits. The snap is a bit dry and lingers into a grapefruit skin finish. Candy malts and pine become more apparent as the beer warms. Not a hint of alchohol cmes through.
Feel is soft and luxurious overall with a dry snappy hop balance just the right amount of carbonation in this medium to full body beer.
