L: Hazy yellow with an orange tint to it. Nice fluffy head and good lacing.

S: Tropical fruits, pine resin, peach, candied malt.

T: Moderate bitterness upfront, big juicy fruit character follows. Mango, papaya, peach and a resinous pine character. The malt adds some sweetness enhancing the juiciness of the beer.

F: Full bodied, but drying on the finish.

Overall: A superb DIPA, just your average Hill Farmstead hoppy brew. You really can't go wrong with these guys.

It’s very pretty for a beer. The perfect Instagram shot can be has for anyone with this given it’s bright colors. There’s a little lacing that stays around. I don’t get as much on the nose as I’d like from the absolute favorite IPAs I’ve had. It smells grapefruit zesty and you get that on the tongue. The beer shines through in its bitter balance with sweetness. Alcohol is very well hidden. Why do they make these in only 12oz cans!! My favorite Hop Butcher IPAs often have a softer mouthfeel than this guy, but this is still wonderful. Wow, a great IPA and so glad to be able to have some. Would never pass on it.

Poured into a tulip glass via draft

Color is banana yellow

Smell is dank and pungent pine and tropical fruits

Taste follows the nose very nicely..no alcohol burn here at all..very smooth

Carbonation is medium

Mouthfeel is creamy

Its easy to see why this rates so high..a textbook example of a New England IPA
World Class stuff

Picked up some cans at the brewery at the end of August. This is a tasty vermont IPA, hazy but not gritty. Excellent mouthfeel for the style. Great tropical aromas and flavors but this came in just a touch behind Double Galaxy for me. Good beer no doubt.
