12 oz. draft at Rattle N Hum

A - Pours a hazy yellow-golden color with one inch of white head and moderate carbonation. Light lacing on the glass. Very good looking DIPA

S - Grapefruit, some light orange, citrus, and light notes of vanilla and pine. There's a faint hint of alcohol too. As it warms up some tropical fruit notes emerge.

T - The hops truly dominate here and they are really impressive. Grapefruit, pineapple, lemon zest, and some strong pine. Some nice sweetness from the malt is a nice underlying note as well.

M - Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, and a crisp feel.

O - Another amazing beer from Hill Farmstead. They really put out some top notch IPA's and beers in general. Can't wait to try more offerings from them.

The keg of this one came and went way to quickly at the Birdsall House in Peekskill, NY. If not for the heads up from Stone's Dennis F. I might have missed it.

Pours heavily clouded, dull, dark tangarine amber, well groomed head, with ample webs of lacing left behind..

Muted ripe mango, lite smoke and some grapefruit on the nostrils.

Ruby red grapefruit, mangoes at back with a note of hot sauce. Nice spicy/sweet balance. Smooth grapefuit pith infused finish. Clear quality, dense and complex mixture of flavors, fresh, yummy and complex. The Hill Farmstead brews have been consistantly living up to the hype/buzz..Well worth seeking out this one

Hill Farmstead Galaxy
Poured from a HF growler which I bought on 3/21/2012 into my glass (date 4/11/12).
A: Pours a brown/orange with a large head. Cloudy but uniformly so.
S: Lemon zest, some pine and citrus notes. Overall a simple but great IPA smell.
T: Musty, some citrus and some hop very balanced and a little malty.
M: Hops and malt fills the mouth all of which are good and balanced.
O: A great IPA. It would have been better fresher, but no worries. I would drink this on a weekly basis the only problem is there really nothing that particularly seems to stand out to me and it’s way too far out of the way to buy this when nothing stands out.

Appearance: 1/3 inch head, orange-brown in color, hazy, moderate carbonation

Smell: big pine and citrus hops

Taste: juicy citrus hops with some caramel in the back

Mouthfeel: medium carbonation, medium bodied, bitter start with some sweetness mid drink, and a dry bitter end

Overall: With apologies to Wachusett Larry, this is the best IPA that is coming out of New England. Certainly one of the most refreshing IPAs I have had. On the hoppier side but what a nice juicy burst of citrus. I could drink several pints of this.

On tap poured into a tulip.

Pours a slightly hazy orange color with a small white head and a thin fine lacing. Nose is Piney and fresh, a bit of tropical fruit and light sweetness.

Taste is a punch of bitterness and floral hops. There's a nice long bitter bite on the finish. Mothfeel is smooth and crisp with some very nice carbonation. Very tasty and refreshing on a hot day like this.

On tap at Blackback pub.

Pours slightly cloudy with a medium sized tight sticky head. The aroma is phenomenal, lemon, grapefruit, mango, passionflower and a little oniony dankness. Taste is more of the same, just not quite as incredible as the aroma. The citrus hits hard up front, gives way to some slightly sweet malt (hint of medium crystal), which then disappears into a wonderful complex hop finish. Medium-light body with just enough alcohol evident to push the hops into your tongue. Smooth and dangerous.

I cannot believe that something this complex only contains one hop!
