Hill Farmstead just sets the bar so high. This was absolutely great.

Had on tap at the Whetstone Station, Brattleboro.

L — Pours an orangey amber haze with a small white head that dissipates quickly but laces well. Doesn’t look as murky as some NEIPAs can - the haze is more inviting
S — Dank new sneaker, orange, pine, chalky yeastiness, hint of weed. Definitely citra-dominant, smells a lot like Julius
T — Crisp, herbaceous, and rindy with nice undertones of tropical fruits, grapefruit flesh, and bready malts. Hop bitterness is more present than in many NEIPAs, but it’s not at all biting or resinous
F — Medium mouthfeel, medium carb. Very drinkable, with minimal bitterness in the semi-dry, fruity finish
O — First time trying a HF brew, and really digging how well put-together all the aspects are. Reminds me of a ‘softer’, ‘updated’ Heady Topper

90/100

EDIT (1/7/2018):

Trying this for a second time and was equally impressed with all aspects. The mouthfeel is right on the cusp of a 4.5
