Notes/Commercial Description:
This double IPA is a collaborative beer brewed by Shaun E. Hill of Hill Farmstead Brewery with Jacob Storm and Morten Lundsbak of Amager Bryghus (Denmark) at Hill Farmstead Brewery in Greensboro Bend, VT.

The name is inspired by one of Danish writer Hans Christian Anderson's travelogues; the beer represents a vivid but fleeting memory of a productive and wonderful visit by our Danish friends to Vermont's Northeast Kingdom.

Pour is a transparent golden amber with a bubbly white head. Nose is a more muted version of S&S 5. Tropical fruits and herbal grassy notes with notes of stale grain. Taste is a bit more bright, citrus and light pine. The grain and malt presence are cleaner and more balanced. Bitterness is low but present. Carbonation is stronger, body is light and soft.

Poured from a two liter hf growler, not overly carbonated but I waited 9 days before opening.
Mild pine aroma but not strong on the nose.
Has a piney resinous taste very drinkable eight percent abv is very well hidden. Has a sweetness which turns to a bitter hop finish..
Very solid chewy mouthfeel this growler has to be finished today and I don't see a problem at all with accomplishing that.
Very solid double ipa in the hill farmstead grassroots series.

Thanks to slk2go for sharing this 1-liter growler. Poured into a snifter, the brew appears a clear orange color with slight yellowish stain of pillowy fluff. The cap slowly fades leaving a layering of lace at every sip.

The smell is dank with pine and citrus rind/zest and an herbal component. Some grassiness gives way to a mild touch of yeatiness. When swirled sulfur emerges with a hint of wheaty grain.

The taste is rindy and zesty with pith and pulp bit without getting bitter. Some fruity notes have a minirly tropical feel. This is an enjoyable offering that is clean and enjoyable but no singular flavor pops or standa out to make it memorable.

It is medium bodied with a modest level of carbonation. It is nicely executed, easy drinking an enjoyable. Like previously mentioned nothing really pops here to make it a standout. It is just a well done easy drinkibg IPA with a hell hide alcohol level. I know this is a redundant proclamation but it carried a similarity about it like every other HF hoppy offering that hardly distinguishes it from the others...

This Hillstead Farm collaboration beer is amazing! The appearance is mouth watering golden in color. The aroma is Pine and citrus that is heavy on the nose. The taste is right up there with the best DIPA's on the planet. This brew had a beautiful head when poured into the goblet. I could drink this all day! Again the color and carbonation of this brew is amazing!

Bottom Line: Nearing Legendary status
