Filled a Treehouse growler. Consumed the next day. 2/15/18 " Imperial single hop pale ale".

A dark and seriously hazy muddy golden color, classicly healthy, chunky, long lived white foam cap. Very chunky lace is left high up on the glass and streams down. Very solid. Looks like a tropical pinch blend with black pepper and lemmon added.

The nose is full of freshly cut grass, lemmon zest, spicy citrus, sweet pineapple and mint leaves from the Galaxy hops. Mild but sweet malt tones, grains and honey. Lemmon zest, grasses and citrus pop out most. Smells very fresh, like a wet field on the first hot day of spring but with spruce and pine tree's dropping sap all over it.

Whoa!! This liquid is pure fire. Deep layers of Galaxy hops just crushes the taste buds. Grains and dry grasses pop right out, the earthy tones are awesome. Spicy citrus, zesty herbs, pineapple, white grapes, black pepper and light melon round out what the Galaxy hop provides within the flavor spectrum. The malted barley is very light and gives a crispy grains and wild honey effect for balance. With an 8% abv. You would never know, in fact, it has the complexity of a session ipa in the mouthfeel and flavor. The tag on the growler does note: " Imperial single hop Pale Ale, the body and flavor does fall on the Pale Ale, not IPA side. Very mild bitterness but tons of earthy/fruit effects regardless.

The mouthfeel us actualky very lush, long and practically full for the style. A crisp bite happens first with layers after layer of heady liquid. In one way it's a very light feel but then it rides along in a full , smooth effect. Juicy finish, not really ever dry.

This is a unique brew. Excellent complexity with some very original aspects to the hop flavor. Very eell rounded hop taste with minimum bitterness. Makes the drinkability extra high. Cannot believe this is 8 % abv. Double Galaxy vs. Double Citra.....too close to call. Hill Farmstead just needs to keep crushing the hops!
