Softer mouthfeel, lots of flavor and aroma, pours a hazy golden yellow. Had on tap. One of the best beers I've ever had.

Had on tap. Pours cloudy bright gold color with one finger white head with ample lacing.

Modest aroma of citrus and pine. Very clean smelling.

Hop forward with pine and lemon notes. Super smooth with the lemon kicking in late alomg with a lingrring light sweetness.

Soft feel with a moderate to high bitterness.

Well balanced, clean and just the right flavor. This is a testament to the high quality coming from these guus

I've been lucky enough to drink this beer on tap last summer. As good as it gets. Highly recommended; drink it if you ever get the chance.

Lucky enoug that Upright Brew House in the West Village (NYC) was pouring drafts of Susan. Never a surprise to be impressed by Hill Farmstead.

L: approachable orange haziness
S: dank sweet sugary peach pie with a doughy pleasantry
T: clean and easy fruit with peach in the forefront. Almost sessionable
F: hit all parts of my palate with good balance of fruit, slight pine, sugars, and just the right hop notes without being muddled
O: A top go to when I’m lucky enough to find
