Poured from a 2L growler the day after it was filled.

Everything about this beer screams fresh, juicy, sweet fruit; from the appearance (hazy, orangey golden color), through the absolutely bursting fruity nose, to the taste, it is all a poem to oranges, tangerines and mangoes. One of the best hop driven ales out there, bar none. All hail citra hops ;) !!

Pours a hazy yellow straw color. The smell is loaded with bright citrus flavors, pineapple, mango, hay. The taste follows the nose. this is a fruits hop bomb of an IPA. Loved it.

On tap at and Hill Farmstead.

A- nice yellow straw color. Looks creamy and unpasteurized. Two finger white head frothy head.

S- bursting with fruity, citrus goodness. Mangoes, peaches, guava, etc. Love this hop and this is a premier example of how well it can be used.

T- very juicy and hop forward. All the fruits from the nose are present. This drinks very smooth and one of my favorite parts was the smoothness and drinkability of this ale. Definitely crisp and refreshing and something I'd want on a hot summer day.

M- although this has a crispness and freshness, it also had a nice creamy feel to it. Doesn't get much better than this.

O- love most things HF does and this should be on the top of their IPA list. Well worth the beautiful drive to the Hill.

Of what I've had thus far, this is my favorite of Hill Farmstead's IPAs. Got it a couple times on tap at Armsby Abbey in Worcester, MA.Pours a beautiful hazy orange with a creamy white head. Lots of lacing down the glass. Nose and taste are a cavalcade of citrusy goodness; nice notes of tropical fruits as well: guava, mango, pineapple. This one is just so damn good, and the light mouthfeel makes it so tremendously easy to guzzle. Love it!
