Pours a rich orange golden color with a finger of sticky foam.. Aromas are dank herbal tropical hop juice. Nice apricot, mango and citrus take the lead with a dank earthy caramel malt backbone to hold everything in place and deliver this big hop juice flavor. Nice lingering fruit.... YUM!

Thanks to Ryan for sharing this with me many months ago. From notes. Hazy gold, white frothy head. Aroma of grass at first, followed quickly by fruit cocktail, mango / pear juice. Some sweetness (like honey, grass). Taste: lightly sweet, dry moderately bitter finish that lasts. Cotton candy (but not sweet), tropical fruit. Palate is the weakness: medium body (feels thin), slick oily texture, lasting bitter finish, a little grainy in the finish as well. Pine and grass. Overall: pretty damned tasty.

Golden pour, fluffy white head. Nose is onion, fresh water, some resin. Taste is the same with a touch less fruit than Double Citra. Soft palate.

Growler from HF. Here is a first class big IPA, and the best Hill Farmstead release I tried on this vacation. There is loads of fresh hop flavor. You encounter flavors of orange, tangerine, and green hops, and a well balanced, subtle tingle on the palate. Another great IPA from the State of Vermont.

Aroma is fruit with orange zest, ripe mango, pine, light biscuit.Taste is light to medium sweet biscuit and ripe fruits, medium pine bitterness. Finish is smooth and rounded lasting bitterness with a pine and grassy notes, some sweet biscuit and tropical fruit sweetness as well. Medium bodied, oily and smooth with a dry finish, soft to average carbonation.

bytemesis (3518) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - NOV 2, 2014
Growler - thanks Jason! Pours very hazy orange amber, medium creamy off-white head that lasts a long time and laces well. Aroma is dank, tropical, some spruce and a bit of pot. Flavor follows, quite light sweet and light plus bitter, bursting with hop flavors, dank, piney, tropical fruity. Some lingering bitterness but not harsh at all. Medium body, soft, HF-typical mouthfeel. Quite tasty.

tectactoe (2337) - Michigan, USA - OCT 30, 2014
Growler: Murky, dense sunburnt amber. Both radiant & turbid all at once. Modest soapy white head settles quickly to a thin bubbly collar. Aroma is loaded with notes of wet pine, grapefruit rind. sticky dank resins, hop oil, sugar cookie malts, juicy tangelo, pineapple, hints of passion fruit, modest grass... Very nice. Flavor is even better. Exceedingly crisp & clean. Slightly herbal & grassy hops, touch of white peppery coated pines, citrus rind lightly coated with table sugar, notes of white grape, tangerine, pineapple, & a little bit of either mango or guava... Some kind of tropical essence alongside the citrus. Sweet tropical & bitter citrus. Lots of backing grassiness. Touch of cracker malt, only enough to provide a base, never intruding on the hops. Nice mouth feel, drinks way easier than 8% with no sign of alcohol. Touch of citrus rind, pine, passion fruit, & bitter grass in the finish. Great stuff.

Excellent brew, smells like grapefruit. Very hoppy with a nice grapefruit flavor. Hops are nice and crisp all the way through and liner around very nicely. Definitely one of the better IPAs out there.

Beerman6686 (4704) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 28, 2014
This poured a hazy light bright orange with a billowing white head. Aroma was of big tropical fruits, mango, peaches, and melon. Flavor similar, big and bright, only.moderate bitterness, light grain in the finish, and mild alcohol showing through. What really sets these HF ipas apart is the body/mouthfeel. Super light, carbed perfectly, very drinkable.

Growler from the brewery. This beer is up there with the best DIPAs I have ever had gets the edge over Citra. Pours a cloudy bright orange with a slight reddish tinge to it. Fluffy white head. Aromas of orange, tropical fruits, mango, and tangerine. Very much like a super light orange juice. Taste was slight bitterness, soft finish. Super drinkable. Juicy.

(I have to rate Double Galaxy and Double Citra (both HF) about the same. It’s like choosing between children. Growler from HF. Hazy gold with white frothy head. Aroma is hay, pine, orange zest, lemon, tangerine. Taste is the same. Crisp and light on the palate. This one has a lingering lemon/pine astringency which I would assume is from the Galaxy hop. It’s amazing.
