I found Susan on tap at Armsby Abbey on a recent trip to Massachusetts - a bit of a detour, but well worth the drive (for food and beer both).

Susan is a tremendous warm day beer - I had no A/C in my car and was quite hot. Susan is tropical, with some pineapple and malt and hoppy bitter fruitiness. It's damned fine and refreshing - I wish that Hill Farmstead distributed or tapped in the Midwest.

Perfect pour from a growler, small fluffy head, lacing all the way down the glass, hazy amber.
Not a strong smell, mostly getting juice some orange juice scent, lots of fruit.
Taste is along with the nose. Lots of orange juice and tropical fruit taste. Extremely smooth and way too easy to drink. You get a little bit of the pine/bitterness at the very end.

One of the smoothest/easiest to drink ipas I've ever had. But it's missing that stone fruit/dank hop flavor that are in my favorite ipas.
