look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

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.

Tapped straight from the keg @ Rochefort10nh's place. Reviewing from a growler.

Price - $130 per 1/6 barrel

Pours turbid with a shade close to that of apricot accompanied by a fluffy white two inch head. Laces nicely with polka dots. The appearance is like a 9.0 on the beach.

The aroma is strong with hemp resin and herbal hops. Oranges, lemon, mango and pine are all there behind the backdrop of grapefruit. The fruit and pine blend well together and add to the balance.

The flavor is much more earthy than what I was expecting. Not as fruity and sweet as the nose would suggest. Grapefruit, orange and caramel are hidden in there. No sense of the 8.0% punch lurking in the dark so beware.

The mouthfeel is intense and sticky with a bitter dry finish. It does settle down a bit as it warms. Has a medium body with a near perfect carbonation feel.

Overall I enjoyed this beer many times over several days. As a DIPA this is very dangerous due to it's high drinkability. Perfect for this time of year and another solid offering from the areas best brewery.

Growler courtesy of Barnesy148927; thank you very much for getting this out to me. Hope the Expo Hop made it worth it!
Filled ~ 8/13/11

Poured from Swing-Top Fill to Oversized Wine Glass.

A: Deep bread crust orange/yellow with some bold foam sitting over the beer like clouds. Really very lofty foam that leaves rain drops of lacing as it recedes. This is a very deep orange/persimmon jam in the glass. I would say marmalade, but it's much thicker and darker than that. Organic raw honey look that makes me excited to taste.

S: Huge tropical fruit character that exhibits those more unusual fruits: Passion fruit, Mango, and a bit of guava with rind. A bit of tangerine citrus mixes with lemony zests. Though I would say the only thing very citrusy about this is the zesty spritzy essence, while the smell character is actually tropical in a slightly unusual way. This reminds me a bit of the Kern River IPAs in the nose. Which I think are some of the best smelling beers on the planet.

T: The taste is a bit more ordinary than I would have hoped (It's single hop, I know, but I can dream). A really rounded grapefruit rind and connective tissue flavor that lingers closer to mandarin oranges/clementines. A very light bitterness that doesn't come off harsh in any way whatsoever. There's a big "oily" character to the flavors that I can't quite pinpoint, but it soothes over any potential room for alcohol to peak in the flavor. Oily flavors mix with alcohol to create a cloak for the alcohol.

M: Okay, this mouth is phenomenal. This is so buttery and so creamy I can hardly believe it came out of a growler. I'm very glad that it's held up this well, but really this is just an outstanding lightly bursting bubble mouth that just slips down the throat like some delicious broth. Even if the taste wasn't that good, the mouth feel would make this crushable for me. Fortunately the flavor is good, and the mouth almost convinced me it tasted better than it does. light burstings of small bubbles match a silky slipper nectar mouth.

O: It's impressive to see what HFS can do with a single hop DIPA, but I have to say I felt teased. The look and the smell gave me that same sort of build up that non-fresh Just Outstanding IPA does. It looks awesome, it smells fantastic, it tastes.... not quite as good. Don't get me wong, exceptionally well made, but it doesn't compete with its other characteristics. Before you light the torches and cry blasphemy, let me just say that this is still just a single hop DIPA. Galaxy tastes good, but I still want a cocktail of hops in my glass. All things considered, this is super good. I just wish more was there in the flavor to compliment the amazing aesthetics and feels. If nothing else, this beer makes me want to try ephraim quite badly. If HFS can do this well with a single hop series, then I've got to know what other potions they can concoct. The brewers up there are certainly masterful in their creations, I just want to know what they can do beyond the limitations of a single-hop. A good beer where the flavor stood out far too much as the weakest link.

From 07/07/11 notes. 750ml growler shared by Thorpe429; thanks Mike, always interested in trying more beers from these guys. Poured into a Fantome tulip.

a - Pour a hazy yellow-golden color with one inch of white head and moderate carbonation evident. Light lacing on the glass, looks pretty nice.

s - Smells of tropical fruits, citrus hops, pine hops, and light floral notes. Lots of fruit, I found it pretty enjoyable.

t - Tastes same as the nose, with some moderate bitterness. Pine hops, citrus hops, and some tropical fruits.

m - Medium body and moderate carbonation. Moderate bitterness up front and then especially in the aftertaste.

o - Overall I thought this was a really nice DIPA from Hill Farmstead, though I personally prefer Ephraim. Would certainly have it again.

A: Cloudy dark amber in color. Forms a huge, off-white, bubbly head. Good retention and some light lacing.

S: Hugely aromatic. Oranges, mandarine, tropical fruit, passion fruit. Sweet tropical fruit.

T: Reminiscent of the aroma, but, unfortunately, toned down a bit. Light to mild sweetness. Orange, citrus, and tropical fruit with a mild-moderate bitterness.

M: Medium to heavy bodied. Light to medium carbonation. Somewhat creamy or velvety.

O: A very good beer. Absolutely drinkable, though I did find the aroma to be more inviting than the flavor itself, but this is a minor flaw.

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.

750 growler poured into a nonic glass.

Hmm, can't give this much props for appearance. Very turbid in the body and resembles pear juice or something of that variety. Excellent lacing however and a nice frothy head. 3

That nose gets us back on track. Mango and pineapple leap out at me. It's so potent I feel like there are strands of fruit fiber stuck in my nostrils. How this is achieved I don't know, but I'm mighty impressed. It's bitter and citric to boot, but those are minor role players. 4.75

When I shared this beer with friends earlier in the day, I got much more pithy and zesty grapefruit peel, but for whatever reason, more mango emerges with my second visit of the day (alone and able to focus entirely on the beer). Still, it's got a strong bitter grapefruit flavor followed by an injection of floral flavor that suggests a saison. 4.25

Has what seems a trademark of Hill Farmstead beers, an excessively easy-drinking quality and smoothness, at least for 2/3 of my palate. The finish is much more aggressive, yeasty, pithy and bitter. It's easy to miss the spicy hop bite too, but it's there. 4.25

Hill Farmstead. Good beer. I'm being redundant.

Tap at the Armsby Abbey Hill Farmstead takeover.

Light fizzy 1/2 finger head, soapy lacing, super hazy carrot wheat color.

Nose fresh hops, light musty resin, pine, citrus, very light malt, tangerine, peach etc.

Taste starts grainy and malty, then earthy hops, light floral, then citrus galore, light tropical fruits, tangerine, mango, even slight pineapple, hint of pine and resins, light malty sweetness but little balance. Big malts and bitter hops, would be astringent if it wasn't for the malty sweet balance. finish is fairly bitter, little sweet but dry, hint of fresh pale malt, more hops, long pine and reason, lots of fresh tropical fruit hops late, and gets boozy as it warms.

Mouth med bodied, good carb.

Overall nice, big hops and malts, nice malty balance overall, a bit on the boozy side, decent tropical fruits and citrus hops, overall not too heavy but a sipper.

Split with angrybabboon.

Appearance: Hazy dark golden yellow. Head is a loose dense white with tons of sticky lacing. Solid retention leaves a small clumpy cap and slightly thicker collar. Moderate carbonation on the pour.

Smell: Earthy and grassy with a pronounced but not aggressive bitterness. Pine needle lingers on the back. Tropical, but more like guava, mango, etc. A less sweet fruitiness. Malts are the expected pale malt sweetness with a slight push of cracker and undercooked biscuit dough. A touch of yeast adds some slightly fruity esters. Some grapefruit rind and oil in the mix as well. A bit more aggressive than the other single hop beers.

Taste: Woody pine branch. Slightly earthy and herbal as well. Some pithy bitterness coupled with some grapefruit rind. Pushes guava, mango, some passion fruit, and a touch of ruby red grapefruit. Flash of bitterness cleans out rather quickly. Malts are very lightly sweet with some mild bready elements. Slightly mealy fruit. Flower petals. Some hints of grass thrown in there. Fresh biscuit dough. Some very mild fruity esters. Bitter pithy fruit.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with a moderate carbonation and a decently dry finish. Initial sip is slightly creamy and smooth. Easy drinking.

Overall: The Guardians might have trouble protecting this Galaxy.

Throw on your favorite mixtape and sit back with this and enjoy. As far as a single hop goes it has decent depth and plays quite well with the malt base. Slightly sweet and properly bitter. It lingers.

Thank you, Eric. This review took me about 40 mins, as I allowed the beer to evolve and my sobriety to be compromised.

Pouring a hazy yellow orange with a dense, white head with excellent retention but surprisingly little lacing, this looks pretty decent. The nose is a beautiful expression of fruit hop notes. Tangerine zest, mango, passion fruit, a little floral character, fragrant honey, all bright, with minimal bitterness, this smells _excellent_. There is also a little bit of semi-ripe pineapple present. I can't perceive much malt character here. While the nose isn't explosive (like, say, Heady Topper), it does display depth and delicacy, which I enjoy.

The palate opens bright with a blend of moderate bitterness and plenty of tropical fruit. The layered flavors of citrus, mango, passion fruit and pink guava juice are delightful, but there is something that's a little lacking here. The hop flavors, while beautifully layered, aren't as bright and redolent as I'd hoped. Bitterness is moderate, delicately so, working well with the flavors. There may be a hint of pale malt somewhere here, but it doesn't particularly stand out, this is all about the hops. Given the delicacy of the flavors here, the medium-high carbonation is distracting. It makes this a blend of creamy and frothy on the palate, which when combined with the lack of aggression as far as the hop flavors go, seem a little muted. Once the carbonation does fall off, this does gain a slightly ethereal feel, which is nice. Drying, moderately bitter on the finish, with a lingering fruity hop flavor, this beer is pretty excellent.

I initially gave this beer a 4 for MF, but as I keep drinking it, it really does get better with subsiding carbonation, and so, I'm upping the score a hair. I guess what I was looking for was just a little bit of snap

Growler. Poured like pure fruit juice. Tropicana. Aroma is denser and has less pop than I was expecting. No matter, it still smelled pretty impressive. Galaxy, to me, always has such a ripe, tropical fruity aroma and then the flavor is more assertive. The nose here is mixed citrus with passion fruit. The flavor is more pungent than the nose. A really strong, tropical fruit medley. Passion fruit and some grass. Creamy, full bodied ale. Slightly below my expectations but my head was in the clouds for this one.

Thanks to AndrewK for sharing this one at jmgrub’s tasting.

Pours a murky honey orange-brown with a foamy beige head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of tropical fruit and some herbal and peppery hop aromas. Taste is the same with some big grapefruit flavors. There is a somewhat mild bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a fantastic DIPA with awesome aromas and flavors that showcase the galaxy hops used.

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.

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

Presentation: 64 oz. growler (they were out of the nice Hill Farmstead swingtops) poured into a tulip glass. Growler split amongst a couple friends.

Appearance: Pours a really impressive, white fluffy and full head. Cloudy orange in color. The growler certainly did well in holding the carbonation as this is exactly how it tasted earlier in the day on tap.

Aroma: Big grapefruit, pine and sweet tropical fruit notes dominate the nose. Impressive hop presence here.

Taste: The hops truly dominate here and they are really impressive. Grapefruit, pineapple, lemon zest, and some strong pine are all here in full force. Some nice sweetness from the malt is a nice underlying note as well. The aftertaste is a tad bitter and can wear thin over a couple glasses.

Mouthfeel: Full bodied and creamy. Coats the mouth wonderfully.

Overall, a really impressive and strong IPA. A great way to showcase this hop. The flavors are big and bold. This is certainly not for the timid. A really nice hop bomb and something I would love to try again.

for a single hop... this is one amazing hop. there are subtle characteristics of a collection of other hops in this one. pour is nice and lacy but not a sugar bomb. the nose is citrus... this is a DIPA on the fruity side. some pine earth hints. nose of mango, tangerine and hints of grapefruit. palate is a bit citrus tropical. beautifully refreshing for a DIPA. it good to see something this nice when there are so many trying.

On the tap at Blind Tiger, this beer had the misfortune of being sampled directly after the magic of Ephraim. How could anything top that sick bastard? Well, this one would attempt to use my memories against me, trick me into thinking it was better. Even though this was a new hop, a descendant of Perle, it reminded me of standing in the gigantic Hopunion refrigerated warehouse, swaying, intoxicated by the brilliant and bold aromas of citrus assaulting me. In an instant with my nose in the glass, I was transported back to Yakima, a kid in the nose candy store. The flavor was nice, some sweetness, oranges, tangerines, and the resins lingered with the sweetness nicely. Ultimately, another awesome DIPA, but quite a different brew.

Enjoyed on tap at the Armsby Abbey during Hill Farmstead tap takeover. Reviewed from notes.

A - A Nice golden hazy pour with a rocky two finger head that leaves massive side lacing.

S - Dank hops, citrus, must. Very sharp and enjoyable.

T - Dank citrus (orange) hops, light sweet malts. Super well balanced with the fruits and juicy orange. Very nice.

M - Very nice carbonation here. Not too bitter at all and the ABV is incredibly well hidden.

O - Overall this is a very, very, very good beer. That orange stands out so nicely almost like fresh squeezed juice. Delicious.

On tap at Ginger Man in NYC. Served in a large snifter.

A - Arrived with a finger-plus of creamy white foam that settled to a thin cap, leaving behind splotchy lacework. Hazy peach body.

S - Initially it's big grapefruit, some light orange, candied 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 - Again, plenty of intense grapefruit pith and rind mingle with light caramelized sugars and tropical fruit flavors. Initially quite bitter, particularly in the finish, but gains sweetness and complexity over time. Alcohol is better hidden here.

M - Medium body, medium-low carbonation, a super dry finish, and plenty of residual hop resins. No alcohol warmth. Pretty much what I expect from a Hill Farmstead DIPA.

D - A very hop-forward DIPA for the East Coast - Shaun E. Hill knows how to get it right. I downed my glass in record time, and could have gotten quite hammered from a few of these if I hadn't had elsewhere to be. Looking forward to the bottles/growlers Sean is bringing back from the VT.

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.

I will preface this by saying that Double Citra is my favorite IPA, and I love galaxy hops, so I was very excited for this one. It's not as juicy as I was expecting, and it's not as well-balanced as its Citra sibling, but this is still a world class IPA. Beautiful to look at, refreshing, finishes clean. If I could drink these everyday, I wouldn't live long.

1232nd Review on BA
Growler to HF stemmed glass

Thanks to CliffBrake for this one

App- A big hazy, creamy, orange, yellow mixed with creme color. A solid fast receding 1-1/2 in off white head with tons of sticky cling and lace. Just a great looking beer.

Smell- Large amounts of tropical fruits with pineapple, tangerine taking over. Layered with a small piney large hoppy nose. Well balanced without either side dominating the other.

Taste- Really a creamy large and smooth IPA. Has a wonderful balance between the two flavors of tropical and hoppy. The hops are a very small bitter component and blend well with a creamy fruit layer.

Mouth- A very large medium carbonation. A bit too thick for my tastes and has a medium creamy carbonation. Residual citrus and small hop bitter.

Drink- A very good DIPA. Large flavors abound with a wonderful balance and texture. The rest of the beer makes up for the thickness, but just lovely.

Big thanks to dujayhawk for hooking me up! Reviewed from notes. Poured from HF growler into Russian River pint glass.

A: Pours a hazy gold with peach highlights. Medium size white fluffy head over fairly low visisble carbonation - perhaps due to the serving type, though this was a very fresh fill.

S: Wow, hops. Grass, pine, citrus, tropical fruit, all atop just a bit of biscuit malt.

T: Follows the nose well. Melon/spice hops show up big on the tongue, along with the big tropical fruit, and citrus. There are flavors of dank, resiny, citrus, and some grass hops. Surprisingly, though, it seems only moderately bitter amidst the cavalcade of hops. Just a big of chewy malt noticeable just before the swallow.

M: The alcohol is well-hidden. A big, heavy, sticky body for an IPA with good carbonation sensation.

O: This is very tasty, and I'm glad to have had an opportunity to try it. It's a very well-put-together beer, but the hop profile isn't my favorite (or I may have scored it even higher). Very impressive nevertheless.
