On tap. Pours a hazy golden orange. Aroma is pungent. Piney hops along with that splendid Hill Farmstead fruity hoppiness. The malt is smells like sweet pastry. The flavor is immediately grassy and piney. Then the greener hops settle down and in come the fruitier flavors. All of the hops are blanketed by a very yummy maltiness that is sweet but finishes dry. Medium bodied. Cushy mouthfeel. Fairly bitter. It's described as an over-hopped Edward. It's not as good as Edward but it was still a pretty tasty beer that I killed quickly.

Had 2 8oz. pours on tap at Pony Bar HK in NYC today.

Pours a hazy medium orange-yellow, with one inch of white head and moderate carbonation evident. Tons of citrus hops, oranges, tropical fruits, honey, pine, resin, fruity malts, and grapefruit. Light bitter bite in the taste. Medium body and moderate carbonation with some bitterness.

Overall very good. A little bitter for 6% but super hoppy so that's great. Highly recommend it, would love to have it again.

the aroma of the columbus hop is so familiar to me, I know it so well, could pick it out of almost any beer, it is a remnant from my days as a brewer, and its with me all the time. its rare that something so familiar could be presented so differently like it is in this beer, I learned something here about I hop I have spent a whole lot of time with, and I think that's pretty cool. that said, it isn't my favorite hop in the world, and this is pretty aggressively hopped, I think I prefer the more delicate and slammable Edward a little more, but this is pretty great beer all told. there is a lot of bitterness with the familiar resin and vegetal nature of the Columbus hops, almost too bitter for how light the base feels, it lingers long in the finish. I like the feeling of all the oils from the hops in a beer that's no more than medium in weight, and fluffy like this, a neat duality. I was lucky enough to have this on tap at the prohibition pig, I was amazed and delighted to see all the hill farmstead beers they were pouring. this was great, but not the best of the group, that title belongs to Dorothy! still, a great ipa brewed in the unique Vermont style these guys pioneered.
