Pint glass at Three Penny Taproom in Montpelier, VT on Monday 9/28. Pours a super cloudy straw/gold color with a fluffy white head that leaves good lacing. Nice west coast aroma on this, more citrus-y and resin than what I would expect from HF. Great IPA flavor, nice bready malts first give it a sweet backbone. Middle is all hops, a bit more citrusy than what the aroma alluded to. End is the hop oils and resin with a lingering bitterness, not overpowering. Great light body and easy to drink, just enough carbonation to refresh the palate. Could easily have 2 or 3 of these in one lunch. Overall a fantastic IPA utilizing these Columbus hops.

HILL FARMSTEAD HARLAN IPA 9/28/15

Acquired a 750 ml fill at the brewery 9/18.

Poured from the 25.4 oz. growler into a Hill Farmstead stemmed tulip.

a: Translucent orange with a finger and a half thick white head which receded to thin even surface foam and extensive patchy/spotty lacing.

s; moderate citrus/pine resin.

t; Follows the nose with more emphasis on pine over a medium bready malt base, followed by a good strong hop bite which lingers at the sides of the tongue.

m; Smooth "oily" medium, very good body and carbonation tingle.

o; Another winner from HF, higher end of hop power for an IPA, tasty and refreshing though a bit less citrusy than some. The slick mouthfeel is exceptional.

Got a 750 ml growler at HF a week or so ago MDIH just had it tonight. I try NOT to factor in just where I got it and try to review it as if it wa screwed some place else. Hard to do but I don't want the HF brewery to be an influence. So, based on those disclaimers this was a damned great IPA. HF didn't happen to have it in bottles the day I was there but if they had I would have bought a few.
