Got to enjoy this a few weeks ago, but I just got the time to post the review and picture. This was a growler fill from a trip up to Hill Farmstead of Society and Solitude #4 – one of Sean Hill’s experimental double IPA series. I really enjoyed this one. Here’s my full review:
Final Rating: 4.6/5
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Poured from a 750mL growler into a Hill Farmstead Stemmed balloon glass. Bottled yesterday at the brewery.
Pours a deep orange, hazy unfiltered body with a generous white head, reducing fairly quickly but leaving blotchy white lacing.
Bright, fresh, tropical aromas shine through the foam – pineapple, fresh citrus, raw hops, slight buttery aromas come through at times.
On the tongue is an explosion of fresh hops, a nice combination of juicy tropical fruits and delicious dank, resinous zing. Citrus, grapefruit, pineapple. Malt backbone is there -this makes for a nice, medium body with medium-low carbonation.
I didn’t expect anything less from HF – where some of the best IPAs in the world are brewed. Perfectly balanced, super flavorful, and an absolute enjoyment to drink.
