Can. Full-on hazy peach color with frothy off-white head with very good retention. Aroma has overripe tropical fruits, juicy hops but also some more classic herbal notes. Taste has a biscuity malt base, even slightly nutty with the hops leaning towards the herbal and grassy side. Aftertaste lingers with grapefruit rind bitterness. Medium body with medium minus carbonation. Extremely drinkable DIPA with no hint of the 8% ABV. It's not a juicebomb like other hazy IPAs these days but it's very hoppy and well put together.

04/2016 - As much as I love Double Citra, this is next level - just a perfect representation of my favorite hop - Galaxy! From the nose, to the palate, to the finish, this ale crushes and is easy to crush, too, despite the ABV!

From a growler picked up at the brewery today. Hands down the best use of galaxy hops I’ve ever had in a beer. The high ratings are spot on!

From can (2 weeks).

Might be the best Galaxy hopped beer I’ve had to date. Beautiful yellow-orange color with loads of frothy foam upon pour. Abundant tropical fruity aroma that follows into the taste, but without making it overly sweet like many NE IPA brewers tend to do with Galaxy hops. It’s really well balanced and clean in the finish with a good mouthfeel. It is extremely enjoyable and easy to drink. Absolutely love it.

Opaque pale yellow, almost like banana puree, with a large, off-white foam that settles in thick lumps to a fuzzy collar leaving pock mark lace on glass.

This smells like a tropical fruit cup--pineapple, mango and orange--with some eucalyptus, citronella and biscuit.

Taste is surprisingly acidic for Hill Farmstead, but still quite tasty, with notes of mango, pineapple and lemon rind, but also resin and toasty biscuit.

Thin of body with a sharp acidity, the finish chalk dry.
