Growler from gnosis.. thank much. Pour is a cloudy straw gold.. Aroma is floral hops, citrus, grass. Taste is very bitter upfront.. deliciously hoppy.. smooth bitter finish. Lots of citrus and earthiness. Silky mouthfeel. Loved this one.

Draught @ Milk and Hops - Chelsea. Hazy bright yellow with small frothy white head, sweetish citrus peel aroma, low carbonation, very well balanced, slightly sweet citrus peel taste, thickish body mellow palate, medium bitter finish. Incredibly smooth and mellow for this ABV.

On draft at the brewery. I tend to think of Double Citra and Double Galaxy as mirror images of each other. Double Galaxy is substantially more full-on, with waves of pungent, sticky grapefruit and citrus hop flavors, laid on top of the pillowy soft mouthfeel that Hill Farmstead is famous for. One of the best DIPAs in the world.

750 mL growler filled 5/27/16, drunk 6/9/16.
Deep sunset-orange with strong brass-gold hues and a good deal of haziness, though no soupiness. White head atop is medium-sized and well-retained.
A truly juicy experience in the nose as the tell-tale spicy, dank, marajuana-tinged notes combine with a massive orange juice-like character. Very little "dry" or "acidic"-like notes from the nose with plentiful honey-like maltiness and no alcohol or flaw.
Wow. What a bizarre flavor....it’s definitely not bad, but it’s almost like a blend of marmalade jam, fresh squeezed orange juice and flinstones chewables. Was discussing with a friend citric acid additions and this one is definitely a candidate. The orange juice character just seems a little forced and/or lightly artificial. Definitely not like any galaxy ipa I’ve ever tried. Otherwise, same deliciously soft texture with ample, very sweet malts (everything here seems sweeter than most of HF’s other beers) and tight carbonation. Will revisit/rerate soon, no doubt, though interestingly wasn’t as blown away by Double Citra either, so maybe these two just aren’t my thing.

Flight at armsby abbey. White head that leaves a shitload of lacing in the glass. Slight leafy note on the nose. Like biting into a pine cone on the tongue which I quite like. Has some nice bitter notes on the finish. Great beer but since I didn't get the aromatics it's not quite a pantheon beer for me. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: MAY 8, 2016 Growler. Merci Charles. Couleur jaune éclatant, presque orange, assez voilée, mousse blanche, elle est belle et invitante. Nez explosif de fruits jaunes, pêches, mangues, ananas. En bouche, belle texture, céréales fraîches, houblons qui apportent des notes de fruits à la tonne. 8% et pintable comme s’il y avait pas de lendemain. Wow.

På fat Onemile Ale house. YEEES en världsöl !!! Ljust grumlig höliknande Dipa. Doft fräscht av Apelsin Citron Grape. Smak? Tydlig Salmiak inslag fin sådan . Sen kommer lite smaker som du kan läsa om tidigare i denna text. Medelfyllig krämig lagom kolsyrad i klassisk världs Dipa stil. Dock INTE i yttersta toppklass som Other half.
