Dorothy was first brewed in 2010 and brought back in 2014 with a new recipe which will become a regular part of Hill Farmstead’s lineup. This is an interesting mix of styles; a hoppy farmhouse pale ale.
Appearance is an unfiltered orange with a huge fluffy white head, it took several pours to get the glass full enough for this photo. Aroma has more farmhouse funk than hops but both are present. Some grass/hay a bit of funk with some lemon. Taste has a lot going on with juicy hops, followed quickly by the saison yeast and finishes with a nice funk. So much going on it is hard to catch all the different flavors.
Overall Dorothy makes the mix of styles of work. I have a couple more bottles of this and it will be very interesting to see how things change.
