Pour is dark amber, very hazy, lots of white head with a thicker lace. Nose has some fresh cut grain, light pale malt and a touch of sticky caramel. Hops are a bit soapy first, then a very strong grapefruit rind, almost a sweaty grapefruit. Taste is a bit sweeter, lots of fresh grains up front, a fairly moderate malt presence, huge tropical hop punch. Still some grapefruit rind mid to late palate, some mangos and a touch of pineapple. Body is incredibly light and delicate, very nicely carbonated, just a clean crisp and slightly dry finish.

Poured in a tulip glass. A nice golden hue with a decent head. This beer is citrus hop heaven. Another brilliant beer from hill farmstead.

Mild grapefruit. Just the right bitter finish. Full body, nice lacing.

Picked up a 750ML from Hill Farmstead. Well worth the 2hr wait. Outstanding tropical smell. Mango-like. Taste is outstanding as well. Would think that Citra hops were used, given how smooth this beer is. The Simcoe and Amarillo hops blend perfectly together. Very well hidden ABV. Overall, a great beer, which is becoming a broken record when in the context of Northern VT brews.
