12 oz. can. Hazy bright orange. Smells of papaya and some orange zest. Malt behind it is substantial as well. Almost smells of oats. Tastes of tangerine and some sweet melon hops. Still has almost an oaty malt flavor. A little sweet and a little toasty. Medium body. Faint bitterness. Excellent.

This one pours a very hazy orange color, with a small foamy head and lots of lacing.

This smells like super juicy citrus, orange and tangerine, with grassy hops and some light biscuity malt.

This is pretty much incredible. There’s just such a clean and expressive use of the Citra hops. It’s deely juicy and super crisp, with a clean and zesty bitterness. This is better than Double Citra for sure.

This is super crisp and clean, with a decent level of carbonation, and a very high level of drinkability.

This is fairly exemplary. Hill Farmstead is one of the few breweries that make hoppy beers that still excite me.

12 oz. can (!!) dated 7/23/18. Purchased at brewery 7/28/18 and poured into Carton Dubvariant glass.

L: 1F+ fluffy white head with lacing and a cap and ring. Beer is a hazy dull amber.

S: Mostly sticky, dank, earthy, with minor orange and mango type scents.

T: Grassy and earthy, minor citrus and tropical notes. This is a different take than I am used to, or it was an unusual crop. Solid malt backbone, slightly bitter, very dank

F: Medium end of light to medium body, light to moderate carbonation. Fairly drinkable, but a bit more bitter and earthy than I would have expected.

O: Sub-par effort for this brewery. Would rather drink a Carton Boat, Lawson's Super Session, or similar beers.
