Hill Farmstead Susan Review

If I spot Susan on draft in the wild, I plan a swift attack to get it into my (or my husband's) glass. But Susan in a can? I'd be leaving with an armful. Susan's expertly blended use of the strong, citrusy Riwaka hop, along with Citra and Simcoe, creates a sweet orange essential oil aromatherapy in the glass. That sweet citrus is accompanied on the palate by delicate floral and melon flavors. All of that fruity, grassy goodness buoys in soft liquid grist that's a little creamy. Susan became available in cans for the first time this year. It's been available on draft, albeit scarcely, since 2012. It’s high time for the release — while we've swooned over this beautifully balanced, soft, citrusy beer for the better part of a decade, it happens to land in a retail-friendly package at a time that its obscure star hop, New Zealand Riwaka, is beginning to gain popularity.
