This is probably my favorite beer that I have had from Hill Farmstead. Nice and 2 finger head, with a gradient turbidity from yellow to orange. S&S#5 smells of strong citrus and tropic fruits. However, the taste is rather mild with some balanced acidic bitterness with balanced sweetness and full smooth mouthfeel. The bitterness remains in the middle notes but completely drops off at the end for a clean finish.The overall notion of this imperial IPA is utter drinkability as its stability between bitter and sweet is completely in tact.
