Pours an orange-gold hue with loose, bright white head that quickly disperses towards the shoulders leaving a soapy froth. Nose expresses bright citrus notes, hints of melon and a trace of earthiness. Taste expresses subdued tangerines notes with a kiss of grains towards the back. Mouthfeel is light in body with a mild, even carbonation and just a trace of acidity. Overall, an amazing APA. I'd drink this all the time if it were readily available. I think I prefer Sumner to Edward.

Had on tap at Blackback Pub in Waterbury and served in their snifter glass.

All around awesome Pale Ale, like an explosive Edward. Big fruity hoppiness backed up by a touch of sweetness from the malts. Citrus notes and a lot of herbal and grassy flavors from the raw hops here. Some earth and resin.

All in all quite light and easy to drink. Not as good as the Nelson single hop but standing alone this is great.

Had at Rattle'N'Hum West on draft. Honestly, on first taste I thought this was a Belgian IPA, as opposed to APA.

Color is very straw like, aroma underwhelming. Taste is good, but certainly nothing to write home about, and the body is fairly thin.

My first "disappointment" with Hill Farmstead, but still a decent beer, so if recommend folks to try it for sure.
