[From Notes | Consumed 8/11/17]

@ Armsby Abbey

Hazy yellow hue topped with a thick layer of soapy pure-white bubbles. Soft, gentle, nuanced hop aromas with a great green hop pellet edge emerging. Creamy soft spicy pine resin and green hop dankness with some light grapefruit. Easy-going medium bodied feel with light carbonation and a dry finish. I loved the deceptive simplicity of this one - big fan of the general green hoppy dankness that some brewers can harness.

750ml growler, filled around 8.6.17, poured into a Hill Farmstead oversized wine glass.

The beer pours a hazy and cloudy orange color, copper and golden hues with a foamy and soapy white head, good retention and beautiful swatches of lace. The aroma is nice, plenty of overripe stone fruits, candied grapefruit peel, dank weedy floral notes with some grass and pine, bitterness builds as it warms with the signature doughy malt and mineral water character from Hill Farmstead. The flavors are good, bitter and assertively earthy at first with a really nice fruity and sweet expression. Lots of stone fruit, peach, nectarine, mango, candied grapefruit, very floral and bright, a bit of stale grain, nice doughy malt with the signature well water character. The mouthfeel is great, medium to full body, coats the mouth super well, very smooth and almost creamy, dry and easy finish.

Verdict: A nice IPA from Hill Farmstead. The Columbus hops really add to the bitterness and dryness of the beer, but don't take away from the balance as much as I expected. Plenty of soft and delicate fruit flavor that makes for a refreshing and pleasant IPA.

On draft at Hill Farmstead.

Deep hazy orange appearance with a good bit of foam head upon pour. Lemon-citrus aroma and taste. Creamy, soft mouthfeel. Low bitterness. Very easy drinking. Perfect for summer.

Cloudy, dirty gold color. Lasting, thin layer of bubbles. Nice streaks on the glass.

Tropical and pineapple aroma from the hop.

Surprisingly dry with a full body and an equally high carbonation level. Strong bittering hop but it doesn't leave a harsh aftertaste. It does linger a long time. A bit oily from the high alcohol content. Very brief malt presence.

Floral, citrus, soft. Growler filled on 7/6 and enjoyed on 7/8. Follows the profile of all the incredible IPAs I've had from Hill Farmstead - hazy orange pour but not turbid or opaque; citrus, but not fruit forward, in aroma and taste; moderate bitterness that balances the crisp citrus; velvet-smooth and pillow-soft mouthfeel. Just an incredibly well constructed beer from start to finish, head to toe. There's more of a tropical citrus element with a hint of pineapple and papaya. Not acidic, tart or pungent.
