750ml growler poured into a Grimm tulip

A~ light brownish/yellow, with a nice head and a bit of lacing.

S~ vomity, earthy, grass. bland and weird...

T~ dry, bland green tea that was spilled on a pine tree then juiced haha! but yeah not too much going on, maybe i just don't like cascade?

M~ refreshing for sure! nice carb too!

O~ this may just not be my thing. could be the hop... very surprising though! still very drinkable though and better than most =]

This beer does not scream Hill Farmstead. In a blind tasting, I might not love this one so much. Good in a taster but not good enough to warrant a growler fill.

On tap at the Positive Pie in Montpelier.

This is probably the least assertive HF beer I've ever had. It might sound like a strange complaint, but I was really expecting this to taste more like Cascade hops. Which isn't to say that it doesn't taste like Cascade--it does--but it's surprisingly malt heavy. The result is a super smooth and drinkable IPA with a flavor profile that's stable throughout.

This would be an excellent intro IPA, and were it readily available around where I live it would be a go-to session IPA. So it's very good, but just not "OMG I have to trade for that"-level good.
