Thanks to Collin for sharing this growler. Clear yellow pour with a white head. Grapefruit hop aromas. A little dry with a very good mouthfeel and good body. Grapefruit hop notes dominate. A little unbalanced.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Growler de 2 L, frais de la veille. Arômes moyennement intenses de houblon américain, rappelant surtout les agrumes et la résine. Robe blonde et trouble, effervescence assez faible et peu de mousse. En bouche, le houblon se montre relativement aromatique (en fait, assez peu pour une bière de cette brasserie) et montre un caractère fruité et résineux. Le malt est très délicatement mielleux. Finale moyennement amère, très légèrement sucrée. L’alcool est plutôt apparent pour une bière à 8%. Une bonne double IPA, mais sous les standards de Hill Farmstead.

Growler. Pours cloudy yellow amber with a small white head and some lacing. Aroma is fruity, citrus, cat piss, mineral. Flavor is about the same, medium sweet, mineral notes from the well water, light floral notes as well. Medium plus bitterness. Medium body, typical HF soft creamy mouthfeel. Another nice effort.

Cloudy golden orange, some foam but not much. Citrus and cat urine aroma. Very bitter, dank, mineral. Well integrated flavor but your mileage may vary depending on whether you enjoy this type of hops. Dry.

UPDATED: JUN 22, 2013 Swing-top growler at the parentals, with my Dad. Pour is hazy yellow with a big white head and great lacing. Weedy, grassy, straw, biscuity, grapefruity, light urine, piney, orange peel, caramelly, and dank aroma. Taste is big dank, grassy, weedy, ganja, straw, hay, somewhat earthy, citrusy, candied fruits, and resinous with a huge bitter finish. Sticky mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Really nice DIPA, and very well-balanced for such great hop characteristics.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
A- unfiltered honey yellow with one half finger of white head. S- grapefruit and full citrus, sun tea, spicy herbs, lemon pepper, lavender, honey, floral notes, along with some wet grass and musty malts. M- good carbonation with some stickiness. Medium bodied and a full palate. T- orange peel, grapefruit, honey, malts and some mild rose petals to start. Alfalfa, mild pepper, brown sugar, coriander, lemon and mustiness are up next and mingle with the malts, and grapefruit still present from the beginning. Some metallic and mineral notes also in the middle. The subdued ending is malty and bitter with more grapefruit and minerals that quietly hang around. Maltiness is more prominent as it warms.

750ml growler thanks to onebigtymer11. Enjoying this on my 33rd birthday. Pours a hazy burnt orange color with a fluffy white head. Strong aroma of grapefruit, juicy citrus and tropical fruits. Taste is grapefruit, pineapple, apricot, and biscuit malt. This beer is so well balanced and smooth. It's going down way to easy and fast! Loving this one.

750 ml growler from HFS. Bright yellow color with a steady ring of white head that laced the glass. Nose is mango, pineapple, grapefruit and a touch of piney hops. Flavor is mostly the same as the nose. Big juicy fruits and about every hop combination you can think of. Just enough malt to keep some of the hops at bay. Medium body with a real dry texture. Loads of pine hops with a lingering bitterness. Hops, hops and more hops.

Bright, translucent gold color with a frothy white head. Somewhat milder aroma of sweet pale malts, peach, mango, grapefruit, and citrus fruits. Sweetness is balanced with background bitterness. Smooth, crisp, with just a bit of alcohol presence. In between light and medium bodied.
