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.

On tap at The Bench, Stowe, VT. They poured into a tulip. The appearance was a ruddy burnt yellow to hazy orange color. Bar pour’s kind of slim white foamy head dissipates evenly. The aroma has some light citrus, soft melon, some pineapple, and a light grassy sweet to bitter hoppiness. The flavor blends wonderfully between the melon, the pineapple, honeydew softly skating on into the aftertaste and on into the finish. On the palate, this one sat between a light to medium on the body with a nice sessionability about it. Carbonation felt good and let the hops do the talking as the appropriate bitterness impounding my tongue. Overall, extraordinary IPA that I would love to have again.
