On tap at Mule Bar

A: Pours a lightly hazy golden yellow color with 2 fingers of head that fades down to a thin cap that leaves good lacing

S: Citrus and pine up front along with some lighter floral notes

T: Follows the nose. Starts off with a bit of citrus and then goes into some lightly bitter pine and floral notes. Finishes with lingering floral and citrus

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation

O: A very good DIPA that highlights the simcoe and amarillo nicely. Very easy to drink. Well worth a drink

12oz. can into Night Shift stemware. A huge thanks to GrumpyOldTroll for this one.

Nose is dank mango, papaya and citrus fruit. I get clementine, pineapple, cane sugar and honey. Juicy, aromatic and almost pulpy. Beer opens citrus, pineapple and starfruit. Dry on the palate with some grapefruit and orange notes in the middle. End is piney with a sprinkle of fresh cut grass, tree sap and more citrus. This is excellent. Body is light with moderate to ample carbonation. Prickly on the palate and goes down dry with a bone dry aftertaste that coats the inside of my mouth.

In a world where everyone is doing a NE style IPA, Hill Farmstead never forgets to remind us who started the trend and who still, after all these years, does it the best. Nobody else really holds a candle.

On draft. Willi becher glass.

Cloudy golden copper body, hazy with a one finger thick white head, good retention and rings upon rings of lacing.

Aroma is grapefruit and pine with faint leafy floral notes. Mild caramel, a bit of grainy biscuit. Fairly aromatic indeed.

Flavour follows. Big grapefruit and pine, big resinous bitterness up front that fades ever so slightly as the palate advances to the end, leaving a mildly soft floral bitterness lingering on the end. Very aromatic yet clean and well executed. It doesn’t have any sort of sloppiness that a lot of hopped up beers can have.

Medium in body, good carbonation. Moderately bitter, a bit more carbonated and prickly than I am used to from Hill Farmstead hoppy beers- 4 and 6 had a bit more of a softness to it that blunted the hop bite. This one is a bit more unapologetic in that regard and I enjoy it even more for that reason alone.
