A: Hazy orange bodied beer. Looks similar to orange juice. Lots of lacing left behind. Poured a solid 2 finger head out of the can.

S: Lots of fruity hop flavors coming out. Noticing some grapefruit and other sweet fruit smells.

T: Lots of fruit flavors. Tasting grapefruit and pineapples. Taste one this one is really nice.

M: Very smooth mouthfeel. Soft texture and hides the ABV fairly well. This could be a quick drinker.

O: Probably my favorite of the handful of Hill Farmstead beers I have had. Easily one of, if not, the best NE style IPA that I have had. Awesome beer.

Pours a solid murky straw color with a tinge of green. Strong white head. Strong smell of grapefruit and sweet pineapple. I'm immediately impressed. Taste is very tropical. There is a forward sweetness of juicy mango and pineapple that settles down to bitter grapefruit. Medium mouthfeel with good carbonation and slickness. This one is amazing and I see why nelson hops are popular.

Pours a super hazy pale straw-light orange in color with nearly two fingers of dense white head. Aroma is white grape, a touch of candied pineapple, and some grapefruit. Taste is very tropical and smooth; pineapple, mango, some grapefruit, and only a touch of white grape. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. I found this to. E greater than the sum of its parts and it became more enjoyable Over the course of the growler.
