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!

Thanks to Bobby for this one. Enjoyed around the fire with family while camping...can't think of a better place to consume. Nice fluffy head is all can say for appearance as this was consumed at night out of a plastic cup. Hoppy nose hints at what is to come. Really actually pretty balanced once it hits the mouth with bitter hops up front kept in line with medium body malt goodness. Enjoyed this beer immensely if not for the great taste but the company and atmosphere alone.

750ml Growler drank the same day and 1 week later. The fresh growler was more fruity and had more carbonation. I didn’t notice any major differences. Appearance: Deep opaque orange with thick white head. Aroma: Tropical fruits (orange, pinneaples) at first, then there is a rustic touch, wood, dank and grass. Taste: Very bitter, some spicy hops, a nice citrus tartness cuts through the bitterness and accentuates drinkability. Full bodied and very dry. Nice mix between rustic and fruity, quite complex. An average Hill Farmstead double IPA, which means a world class DIPA.
