Served from a fresh 750ml growler into a HF stemmed Tulip

Review #200

Appearance- Hazy orange with big 2 finger bubbly white head that left great lacing.

Smell- Big tropical fruits, nectarine, peach, tangerine, clementine, mango, pineapple, white grape, light malt background, and a slight hint of booze.

Taste- Big citrusy hops with light grassy/pine notes. Peach, grapes, oranges, earthy floral notes. No hint of booze in taste at all.

Mouthfeel- Well carbonated, with a medium body. No booze heat, very drinkable. Not very bitter, but very fruity.

Overall- A very well-crafted IIPA from Hill Farmstead (obviously). Very good beer that I could drink all day.

Hill Farmstead - Double Galaxy, poured into a DFH Spiegelau IPA glass.

Look - Cloudy straw golden with an amber hue and a small soapy head. Great lacing. Great looking brew as per usual from HF.

Smell - Dank citrus from Galaxy hops, touch of malt but otherwise hops take center stage. Hill signature yeast.

Taste - Mouthful of juicy Galaxy hops. Dank citrus followed by some lemony zest and pine.

Mouthfeel - Light-medium bodied with light-medium carbonation. Rests citrus and pine bitter. Slight warm booziness but definitely well balanced. Great drinkability.

Overall - Great Galaxy hop brew, HF almost goes without saying that it's going to be a treat.

Growler is two weeks old. Teku glass.

A: Pours a slightly orangish straw color, hay with a half finger of attractive, snow white head. A good portion of the bubbles are quite large. Very good retention and some dots of lacing.

S: Predominantly delicate fruit (passion and stone fruit) with some herbal/floral notes, dankness and the occasional whiff of blue cheese, with a mild malt backbone. with some sweaty socks/blue cheese thing going on.

T: Again, some mild fruit (grapefruit, now, but also stone, tangerine) with a more prominent herbal note, finishing quite dry with a mild bitterness.

M: Soft mouthfeel with light carbonation and medium-light body.

O: Not the most exceptional DIPA, but delicate and highly drinkable, esp. given the ABV. Like all HF, this is well crafted, though more on the subtle end.
