Growler filled 8/31, consumed 9/6.

Appearance: Vibrant, glowing pale orange with an effervescent bone white head. Beautiful.

Nose: A bit subdued, surprisingly, but still excellent. Big juicy citrus: oranges, lemons, grapefruits. Some sharp apple and overripe mango. Tons of fruit. The galaxy adds a nice floral grassiness to everything.

Taste: One of the juiciest double IPAs I've tasted. Rich orange juice, fresh mangoes, lemon zest. There's a good bit of fresh-cut grass and white flowers mixed into the middle and a crisp, light toast backbone. Finishes sticky and lightly sweet.

Mouthfeel: Just about perfect. Full, sticky, maybe a hint too carbonated but its really hard to complain.

Overall: This may be my favorite IPA that I've had from Hill Farmstead. The juiciness is intense and the balance of it all is excellent. This is definitely in my top tier of double IPAs. I very much hope to get to drink this again someday.
