From a growler filled a week ago. Pours cloudy orange-yellow, with a thin, quickly dissipating head. Aroma of citrus, not strong. Pleasant hoppy taste, lingers well. Feels very smooth and creamy. Very enjoyable.

Drank on draft at Armsby Abby brunch today, 8/7/16, in a wine-like tulip glass; another great hoppy brew from Hill Farmstead, completely hidden ABV and very easy to drink

Amazing beer. Perfect mouthfeel. Not a lot of smell but tastes great some vanilla, earthy, just great. Liked it better than the double Galaxy. Complex profile. Poured from growler one week after visit. Get this one!

Growler filled on Saturday, opened last night...

Look: Hazy yellowish orange color with a white head. Looks great.
Smell: Grapefruit, tangerine and melon. I get lots of melon.
Taste: Melon flavors really shine which make this a super smooth drinking DIPA.
Feel: Med carbonation and damn near perfect.
Overall: Another outstanding offering by HF. They are so consistently excellent across their entire portfolio.

Growler filled on Friday, opened Sunday.

Look: Hazy golden straw with a pure white head. Inviting.

Smell: Grapefruit and tangerine juice meets melon pineapple and papaya

Taste: Holy shit. Huge, but refined flavors of grapefruit and honeydew melon shine. Amazing.

Feel: Classic Hill Farmstead perfection.

Overall: Absolutely amazing.
