Thanks to Deuane for grabbing me a growler of this one from the brewery.

A - Pours hazy golden orange with a dense two finger tall white head leaving sticky rings of lace down the entire glass.

S - Smells of fresh citric fruit zest, pungent hops, fresh cut grass, pine needles and some light caramel malt sweetness.

T - Starts off with a ton of hop bitterness that lasts through the finish. The galaxy and citra hops work well together but they are hard to tell them apart at times. Hints of citric fruit zest, grass and pine as well as some sweet caramel help round things out. The finish is quite bitter, lingering on the palate long after the finish.

M - Medium body with moderate carbonation. Lots of bitterness throughout with a dry finish, no alcohol detectable at all.

O - A very good DIPA yet again from Hill Farmstead. Not as good as some of their other hoppy beers but it was still a very enjoyable, easy drinking beer.

750ml growler thanks to Huhzubendah!

A - Pours a a mirky golden orange color, white frothy head, sticky lace, thick collar, and some wisps on top.

S - Big mango & tropical fruit sweetness up front on the nose along with some citrus and pine that quickly follow. The hops are there, big time, but the fruit & citrus help balance things out very nicely...not overpowering (which I prefer).

T - Grassy, tropical fruit sweetness, some earth, pine. A little more dank then the nose and the hops are showcased here a bit more. There still a nice orange citrus peel note here as well. Alcohol is there, ever so slightly for 8%. Finish is super-bitter pine & resin.

M - Medium body, good carbonation, oily bitter finish.

O - A really nice DIPA that makes two special beers combine into one. I have to say, I'm a fan of the Galaxy DIPA over this beer, but prefer this one over Double Citra. That said, it's all meaningless chatter because this beer is very enjoyable and I will be drinking more in the very near future. Cheers!
