Collaboration beer with Shaun Hill from Hill Farmstead Brewing.

Last pour from the growler, day after opening the growler.

No carbonation to speak of. Yesterday when I first opened it up, there was some off-white head that would build with the typical reverse cascade look going on. Now, nothing. The color is a hazy peach. I am trying to be forgiving for this score, because it is off the last pour and it is from a growler.

The aroma is very powerful and aromatic, not to mention quite attractive. Perfumy...some floral notes, like notes of lilac. Some citrus fruit, or tart fruit in general showing up. Notes of kiwi and pineapple.

Light in body, with a low to medium bitterness. Really wuite fruity and citrusy. No carbonation. Slightly bitter aftertaste. Very mild. This is an IPA that pretty much anyone could get behind. BIG, Juicy and appetizing aromas and flavors that are not a part of anything "imperial" or experimental.

It is straightforward and one of the best American IPA's (though I think it would be smarter to list it as a Pale Ale) that I have had.

Pours a golden amber color, full, dense white head, some sticky lacing. Strong notes of juicy, yet bitter, grapefruit, tangerine and tropical fruit, lightly floral and spicy, crackery malts burried beneath juicyness. Taste brings firmly bitter, lightly sweet and juicy hops, clearn and fresh but delicate, more floral notes, crackery with a spicy kick. Medium bodied, dry. Solid collaboration with fantastic scent, just maybe a touch meek in hop flavor.

Big thanks to yourefragile. Served in Tired Hands stemware. Hazy light yellow. Short head. Nose is insane with dank hops and lemon rind. Citrus. Flavor is over the top. Great lemon. Bitter. Dry. Hands down one of the best hoppy beers I've ever had. No surprise given the brewers involved.
