07/2017 - I've never experienced a beer so full of Nelson and enjoyed it so much! In fact, it's a tour de force of Nelson; creamy, juicy, tiny amount of vanilla; flavorful as all hell!

The cleanest beer out of Hill Farmstead's "Double" offerings. While I prefer the juiciness of Double Galaxy more, the Nelson hops make this a bit smoother while still maintaining the fruitiness. It gets straight 4.5 across the board: the haziness shows off this traditional NE (D)IPA, and the beer has that traditional HF farmhouse smell. As aforementioned, the juiciness is great here, with notes of grapefruit and the it goes down very smooth for a DIPA. For me, smoother than Galaxy, but not as much as Citra and juicier than Citra, but not as much as Galaxy.
