On tap at the Reservoir, Waterbury, VT. This was poured into a tulip. The appearance was a hazy semi-burnt orange color with a bar pour’s kind of slim white head that dissipated evenly and at a nice pace. Light semi-foamy lacing ran around the sides of the glass nicely. The smell took on some sweet onion and then rolled into the dank sweet to juicy danky grassiness. Slight floral qualities slide in underneath. The taste was pretty much the same as the smell with a nice danky sweet onion aftertaste running into the finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a fairly nice sessionable quality about it. Carbonation runs fairly light. Danky juiciness smooths out over my tongue. Overall, I’d say this was a pretty nice APA that I would have again.

Poured from a growler filled on 2/13/16 into a Hill Farmstead stem glass.

A: Orange hue that is just slightly translucent. White foamy head that dissipates. Nice lace left on the glass.
S: Slight hints of citrus. Not overpowering.
T: Some citrus and grassiness initially that leads to a bitterness that sits on the tongue.
F: Carbonated and somewhat bubbly. Leaves a bit to be desired.
O: Pretty standard pale ale. Very well made, but not one of Hill Farmstead's best.
