stevoj (3931) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 1, 2016
Bottle share on 7/30/16, thanks to Jeremy. Hazy straw colored pour, small wispy head. Fruity aroma, tropical, melon, mango, citrus. More big fruit flavors in the taste, but still allowing some maltiness to make itself known. Very refreshing on a hot day, almost too fruity for an IPA, but delicious.

Clownoisseur (424) - Buchanan, Michigan, USA - JUL 26, 2016
Growler from brewery. Pours a golden/honey color with a fluffy off-white head that breaks into fine lace. Aromas of oat/cereal, keylime pie, hints of papaya/mango, earth and floral accents. Taste follows the nose with a keylime hop note...bold malt bill...almost too much for my tastes. Sweet cereal with some resin/grass/floral notes building into a semi-bitter mid-palate. Finishes semi-dry with some sticky sweetness and dank notes of passionfruit/mango. Really tasty beer, but a bit too "big" to put it at the top of my HF rates.

Oh the superlatives I could throw at this stuff. Beautiful hazy gold pour with a thick, creamy cap that looks like a pillow in a five-star hotel. It also lasts longer than a Kurosawa movie and leaves more lace than Peter North. Nose is a tropical fruit bomb (balm?). This stuff smells so ridiculously pleasant and faraway: pineapple and papaya and mango and litchi and tangerines and jesus why doesnít every beer smell this good? Much like the Society & Solitude #8 this stuff is just so fucking smooth. This is probably only the second or third time Iíve given a beer 5/5 for palate, but this brew is flawless. I donít know how many times I can say smooth and balanced but good god this is smooth and balanced. Full-bodied, velvety texture, equal parts sweet and bitter....I could drink this forever.

A Day old 750 ml growler drank with god thx Alex for buying A: Nice tropicaliness coming through mostly composed of litchi, grapefruit, a touch of mango, passion fruit and some pine needle App: hazy pale smallish white head and some lacing. T/p: med body with long bitter finish. Moderate carbonation. O: Upon drinking this God asked me the inevitable question : "Was that beer better than having sex with two girls ?" I told God that since he didnít put two girls disappareted enough on my path, Iíll be force to answer yes. In all seriousness, a mighty good beer with incredible fruity aroma. It only get better after it reaches 10 c or so. My beer fridge is set at 8 C and I was a bit disappointed once I first smelled it. Ps God: Iím always in for new experiences meanwhile, Iíll keep enjoying the reminder of my growler of this brilliantly crafted beer.

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.
