Picked up a sixer of cans a couple weeks ago - not a fan of the NEIPA style (which this is? Isn’t? Who knows) but Hill Farmstead are masters of coaxing out those exceptionally nuanced flavors of hops. The make magic especially from those new age varietals.

I prefer my IPAs on the clearer end of the spectrum so that’s the only sub-excellent aspect of the beer. This brew is like a hop-orchestra without any one instrument playing too loud and nothing is out of tune: tangerine, orange, pine.

Smooth and soft but appropriately bitter. Way too easy to drink quickly.

Poured into a Tree House glass a very nice cloudy yellow color, very nice carbonation, with a very nice one-finger plus creamy white head, which leaves some very nice sticky lacing behind. The nose is very nice, hoppy, malty, with a very nice citrus complex (orange, tangerine, grapefruit, pineapple), pretty nice diesel like. The taste is very nice, hoppy, malty, with a very nice citrus complex (orange, tangerine, grapefruit, pineapple), pretty nice diesel like. Medium Body, ABV hidden very well, with a nice dry/bitter finish. Overall, a very tasty brew. Glad to have gotten a chance to try it. Addictive! Orange Julius! Thanks Kyle!

Canned on 2/5/18 opened on 2/15/18 12 oz. Can.

Look at me! I'm like a pilsner and a glass of o.j some how got mixed together. A white froth, low lying style, constant cover with fat lacing.

Big citris, tropical juice, o.j, white wine, pine sap, floral bouquet with sweet honey and pineapple. All from the hop duo. Vanilla, sweet golden wheat, honey oat style cereal and a funky, light pils style malted barley thing under the hops dynamics.

The taste is sooo damn juicy!! Tropical fruit juice, white grape, earthy-spicy tones, golden wheat, super light and jazzy pilz malt, green veggie, garden fresh herbs....it's a pretty wild hop taste profile. Sour earthy taste later on with some herbs and spice style kick in the finish.

Body is pretty light, fresh but somehow deep and lush, all while slightly dry in the finish.

Everybody get a drink!
