Can. White head. Lace. Hazy golden sunset.

Juicy, tropical, fruity. Mango, papaya, orange, pineapple. Grassy, earthy, floral hops. Some bitterness. A bit of the abv shows. Solid, but I think I prefer their lower abv offerings.

On tap at Parker Pie, West Glover, VT. This one is all about the nelson, which hill seems to source better than just about anywhere else. It's catty, dank, zesty, piney, and crisp. The mouthfeel is quite astringent and mineralic, which seems a bit of a departure from most of their S&S offerings, which I find tend to lean creamy and soft.

Can to snifter.

LOOK: deep dark hazy yellow with maybe a brownish-greenish hint. Healthy foamy eggshell head. Excellent retention.

AROMA: tropical fruit, melon, copper-metallic. Yam. Sweet and savory notes in the nose. Also a fairly strong yeast aroma. Grass, pine, hay round out minimally. A lot going on here. Very juicy with some other tempering notes.

TASTE: apricot, melon, guava, grapefruit, grass,pine, hint of ginger. Very tasty. A touch of puckering accumulates at about 6 oz in, surprising since citrus is not overly present.

FEEL: well balanced, medium body and excellent carbonation. Typical awesomeness in mouthfeel for HF.

Really nice beer and 2 of my favorite hops.

12 oz can into a tulip glass.

Pours a hazy bright orange color with a finger of fluffy white head. The head leaves a crown of lacing as it dissipates into a thin sheet. Beautiful color.

The aroma brings a wave of citrus up front; namely fresh grapefruit, tangerines and orange rind. Then comes some notes of grape bubblegum and white wine. Subtly piney and spicy. Wonderfully simple.

The flavor starts off citrusy, with notes of ruby red grapefruit, orange candy, and tangerines with just the foggiest idea of lemonade. There's a bit of honeydew melon, mangoes and grape skin before an earthy, piney finish. The doughy malt is subtle but present. Excellent as always.

The feel is pretty much what you come to expect from Hill Farmstead: Medium-full bodied with moderate carbonation. Soft, creamy, and exceptionally smooth. Dry on the finish.

Overall, this is an outstanding DIPA. It's a Hill Farmstead DIPA so that's pretty much a given. It's flavorful and complex with shocking drinkability.

L: Hazy yellow with tints of orange and a nice creamy white head. Excellent lacing.

S: Not over the top, but full of white wine, ruby red grapefruit, pine, apricot, and a little bubblegum.

T: Very mild bitterness for the style, moves into juicy grapefruit and and grape flavors. Pine, apricot, and mango are also present. The malt is very restrained but provides a nice bready backdrop for the hops.

F: Soft, creamy, but not thick or sweet. A nice drying finish.

Overall: Another incredible DIPA from Hill Farmstead. Very unique hop character combined with an incredible body and mouthfeel make this a must try in my book.
