4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tasted on 7/11/13 from a 32oz growler obtained in a trade. Pours hazy, bright orange with a thick, fluffy white head that slowly recedes to rocky and messy lace. The nose is super fresh with tons of citrus, pine resin, and a hint of tropical fruit, with just enough light bread malt to back everything up. The flavor is almost exactly the same, with the resin, citrus peel, and tropical fruit the focus, and just enough balancing bread malt. The body is medium with average carbonation and a long super balanced hoppy finish. This is perhaps the most balanced double IPA have had, with every element melding perfectly.

Growler filled 13 days ago and we are allready drinking it now on the otherside of the pond! Poured a deep murky orange colour with a Nice white head. Still a lot carbonation. First sweet juicy aroma of orange, Peach, tropical fruits, mango, lot of pine bitterness, citrus, lemon zest, . Bready malts, resin, taste is Nice and fruity upfront lots of juicy with a full pine bitter kick in the end. All combined perfectly! The best part is the mouthfeel in the aftertaste.

Tap at Hill Farmstead. Pours a beautiful hazed banana peel yellow with a large white head. Aromas of floral and tropical hops, some alcohol detected in the nose. Bitter but gentle flowers and citrus juice. Wow.

UPDATED: MAR 24, 2015 Draft from HF, thanks to Adrian. Superb aroma on this strong IPA. Plenty of bitterness - a touch harsh at first, but once my palate grew accustomed, I was loving it. Full funky floral aroma. A good amount of sweetness also. Some fruit hanging around the edges. Very good indeed.

Growler in trade. Pours a cloudy yellow. white head. Aroma is super piney. Taste is light, piney, with some more hop diversity. Better than the aroma. Would have liked some different hop profile, maybe some citrus, dank, etc. Mouthfeel and body is great, not just my hop style.

Growler shared by beechber224. Nose is super piney and woody. Like a line tar. Very hazy to cloudy. Taste is better and more hoo forward.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Belle couleur dorée avec un col blanc assez résistant. Aromes de fruits tropicaux, comme la peche,mangue,ananas,agrumes, résines, un petit coté épicé, très interessant. L’alcool est plutot bien caché. Une de mes top DIPA!
