This poured out as a slight hazy golden color with a nice white head on top, good lacing and retention as well. The smell of the beer is malty with some light hops on the nose. The taste has a good bitterness to it, light resiny finish. The mouthfeel is smooth, soft carbonation and light bodied. Overall it's a good IPA, but Hill Farmstead has better.

750 mL growler poured into a Teku snifter.

Appearance - Hazy orange. Nice surface foam that lasts a while. Nice lacing.

Smell - Lots of grapefruit hops. I'd guess columbus. Slightest bit of sweetness from the malt.

Taste - Follows the nose. Grapefruit. More bright citrus. Balanced very well by the malt. Barely sweet, but the malt is present. A bit of bitterness.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied. Medium low carbonation. Balanced IPA.

Overall - I seldom enjoy a balanced IPA, but this is great. Another hit from HF.

Pours the cloudy golden yellow color typical of a lot of Hill Farmstead beers, same bubbly sticky head too.

Smells of sticky fruity hops, grapefruit and citrus, some pine, and then some dry fruit character that is probably blood orange. Smells pretty dry.

Tastes of bitter fruity citrus, tangerine and orange and grapefruit, floral hops too, some definite blood orange character, light sweetness from the fruit but not much malt character.

Soft and creamy mouthfeel that is typical of HF IPAs, excellent drinkability.

Another great beer, the fruitiness here is more impressive than the hop profile itself, this is not as aggressively hopped as some other HF IPAs.

8.4/10
