750ml growler filled at the brewery yesterday, split with Kev.
Hazy light peach-colored body with a white head. Falls to about a half-finger leaving decent lace.
Scent includes herbs, earthiness, citrus/peach, caramel and sugar cookie sweetness. Honestly, tame overall.
Taste is better and more potent with cat pee, peach, pineapple, earthy hops and some dank. Some sugar cookie malts and warm bread there but mostly hops. Low bitterness.
Nice smooth mouthfeel similar to other HF IPAs. Good carbonation, light feel, and way too drinkable for 8%.
This was good, the highlight to me was how crushable it was. Compared to some of their other hoppy ales I thought this too subtle in the flavor-wise.

A - Light tangerine color with a warm glow to it. Small white head
S - Sweet galaxy hops with passion fruit, strawberry, tangerine, and slight caramel. Really a sweet smelling beer.
T - Sweet galaxy hops with orange, tangerine, passion fruit and strawberry. Light bitter hops near the backend to it. Sweet balanced beer
M - Sweet body that is slightly thick with a good amount of carbonation to it. Slight hop resin remains on the tongue in the finish
O - A good galaxy hop beer that brings up the nice passion fruit and strawberry presence that'd you expect with enough slight bitterness to remind you that this is an IPA

Light straw colored body with a fluffy white head. Smell is citrus juice with light pine and almost fruity. This is probably the best IPA I've ever had including many from Alpine, Heady, Pliny, etc. The balance is incredible, and this drinks juicy but not sweet. The hop is incredibly delicate and the star of the show. Nothing gets in the way of the hop. Pretty much a perfect beer.

32oz growler (Tired Hands) poured into a Hill Farmstead oversized wine glass.
The beer pours a murky, unfiltered, copper color, hues of orange and gold with a big, thick, soapy white head, about 2 fingers high atop the beer that has very good retention and leaves a beautiful network of lace behind. The aroma is great, super dank, herby and grassy, big notes of pine and resinous hop spice that is cut beautifully by tropical fruit and a touch of citrus with only the softest, doughy malt character. The flavors follow well, bitter pine and coniferous character, hop spice, dank grassy and a bit of floral qualities pop up before the malt evens things out a bit. The mouthfeel is great, typical of a Hill Farmstead beer, rich and coating, but soft and gentle with just enough liveliness. The finish is dry and kicks well.
Verdict: A delicious DIPA from Hill Farmstead, great bitterness with a tremendous balance of flavors. It's ripe, juicy but also dank and bitter, wonderful to sip on. It's not the best DIPA he's made, but damn is it tasty.

Thanks to MikeyPNH for scoring this growler for me.
Pours a hazy light golden honey with 2 fingers of thick foamy head. The head slowly dissipates to a light layer of foam that persists.
Smells delicious. Citrusy hops and grass.
Tastes great. The transition from the hoppy deliciousness to the bitter aftertaste is super smooth.
This is another great DIPA from Hill Farmstead. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this to any hop lover.
