06/2014 - Massive pine, some tropical fruit, grassy aromas; flavorful, clean, bitter, sharp hoppiness all over the palate; light bitterness, with some more tropical fruit on the finish.

From growler (under 2 weeks). Bright yellow-orange completely opaque/hazy appearance with a good bit of frothy foam and carbonation upon aggressive pour. Very citrus and tropical aromaticity. Loads of citrus fruit flavors. Sweeter taste. Creamy mouthfeel and little bit of a different finish than your typical NE IPA (different from Tree House and Trillium). Hard to describe but it works well and balances the citrus fruitiness.

Poured from a 12 ounce can into a wine glass.

Pours a muddy light yellow with aggressive lacing.
Smells underwhelming. Citrus peel, orange juice, light hops.
Tastes great! Really thick and complex flavors. The initial impression is NEIPA, with murky fruits, bitterish-pleasant hops, and a light dryness. The endtaste though is loaded with spices, with spicy, almost savory notes. Robust, beefy, and compelling, I keep coming back for more.
Overall, a wonderful IPA that may not be particularly memorable, but damn sure is tasty! recommended.

First IPA from HF. Absolutely fantastic beer. Super juicy but there is a great balance of bitterness. It pours super, orange-yellow with lots of lacing. It’s creamy and delicious. Almost impossible to tell this is a double. One of the best IPAs I’ve had this year

Beautiful deeply hazed golden yellow body and a super fine bubbly white head. Aroma is Citrus. Tangerine, orange, mango, grapefruit pith. Taste is super smooth citrus - tangerine, orange juiciness, grapefruit pith, touch of tropical fruit, mango. Light notes of caramel and biscuit. Crazy smooth and pillowy mouthfeel. Zero trace of abv heat, finishes with a touch of lingering bitterness which cuts through the delicate malt breadiness and sweetness just right. The aroma and taste aren’t truly explosive but everything else it exceptional.

So glad I got to visit Hill Farmstead!
