Hill Farmstead Galaxy Imperial Single Hop IPA has a hazy body that is a mix of orange and yellow hues. The off-white head is thin yet very solid looking, and the retention and lacing are both pretty good.
The aroma is very nice. Lots of citrus, passion fruit, a little bit of leafy hop flavor. Just a hint of pale malt lingers in the background.
Galaxy hops rock. The best way to prove that point might be by trying this IIPA from Hill Farmstead. The flavors are extremely juicy and fruity, with an array of citrus flavors that are not dominated by grapefruit. Hints of passion fruit and lemon also come through. The bitterness is low relative to the hop flavor, and relative to the style, moderate is the strongest I could describe it. The malt is very understated, with just a hint of cracker and bread from what tastes like a malt bill lead by pale malts. The finish has some more hop flavors, with a grassy, fresh taste to them and a little bit more bitterness.
The body is very nice, with a smooth creamy feeling and just a little tongue-rattling bitterness.
This is a IIPA that is worth seeking out for fans of the style, as it is one of the few best that I have ever had. Hill Farmstead absolutely crushes hoppy styles, and this and Ephraim are prime examples of that.

Fantastic beer, but what else would you expect from those guys up at hill farmstead? Found it very different from the edward or their other ipa's it had a bite that resembled some of the Heady hoppiness. Overall the mouthfeel was definitely what I appreciated the most, cant wait to make the trip up to Greensboro and visit again!

A: Poured from a 750 ml bottle "growler" purchased at Hill Farmsted in VT. Body is hazy yellow with a white head. Good lace.
S: Earthy, leafy, garlicky hops dominate. Touch of lemon too.
T: Juicy hops that bring to mind tropical fruit and plenty of apricot. Nice lemony bitterness as well.
M: Medium heft, soft carbonation.
O: Really good stuff. I liked Abner a little better, but this was very good.
