2l growler. Cloudy light yellow. Very heavy on the grapefruit, yet light. Kinda tastes like grapefruit juice pulp and water. Subtile and easy drinking. Pretty good, but one of my least favorite HF IPAs.

This is an excellent beer.

Most breweries would kill to be able to produce a beer this good. Yet, at Hill Farmstead, it's not even a Top 3 beer.

My only complaint is that when I mixed a growler of Double Citra with a growler of Double Galaxy, it tasted even better than S+S #4.

That being said, this is still a beer that is worth buying every time it is available.
