Oh, Hill Farmstead. Aren't you mortal? Isn't there something that you DO wrong?
Pours a hazy burnt copper with a frothy 1/4 inch top.
Mangos, pineapples, citrus, pine needles and white pepper touch the nose.
The taste starts clean, and finishes with a gracious Galaxy hop presence punctuating fresh grass, hard herbs, citrus and stone fruit. Only a hint of alcohol present for an 8% beer.
Truly a wonderful DIPA, and one I would be lucky to have time and time again.

Aromas of orange, tangerine, pineapple, grapefruit, alcohol and flowers
Taste is so smooth and balanced. Far from the typical over-resinous or sweetened dipa. Citrus, hint of pepper (alcohol?) but not boozy at all.
Bitterness is dry, fruity, smooth, perfect.
Overall, that's the kind of ipa i've always dreamed to drink. One of my best beer from HF so far
