After having had this each time it has been brewed (on tap and from growlers), it's about time for a review.

A - Hill Farmstead has the best looking IPA/DIPAs. Hazy orange with a white head. Sticky lacing all the way down. Just beautiful.

S - Fantastic. A hop explosion. Citrus, orange, tropical fruit, with a bit of pine/dankness thrown in. All this from one hop variety.

T - Follows the nose. Citrus, dank fruits, bright orange, etc. Any malt seems to cower in the background and fear for its life. This is the kind of DIPA I love. It's not too sweet or too malty, just beautiful hops. It's also bitter without being overly so.

M - Mouthfeel is very good. Nice and full and moderately creamy.

O - This is one of my favorite DIPAs. I have had all of Shaun's DIPAs, and not a one has failed to wow me. This is fantastic. I'm happy to see that it has become a regular in the DIPA rotation. I can't wait to see what new ones comes down the road.

This one really blew my mind; had a really sudsy (but not bubbly) carb, with a dank, earthy hop flavor that lingered long after the take. Not to mention it looks beautiful.
