COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Society and Solitude #3: The series of experimental Double IPAs continues. This one is hopped with ample amounts of Columbus and is reminiscent of… an Imperial Harlan.

Oh my. NOT disappointed. Holy crap. Hazy yellow/orange with a large long-lasting fluffy off white head. Smells like heaven - floral, citrus and tropical fruit, not much alcohol. Taste follows, a little more alcohol and the floral bitterness asserts more than the tropical fruit, and wonderfully catty too - could go 9/10 too. Perfect light body, moderate acidity and alcohol with a medium-long bitter finish - so good, and soooooo easy to drink too.

UPDATED: MAY 14, 2012 Huge thanks to a great trader for getting this growler out my way. Served in a Hill Farmstead long stem tulip. Pours a nice orange color with a good white head and a bit of lacing. Nose carries loads of dank hops. Columbus heaven. Can’t get enough. Body is light-medium with really nice bitterness. Fantastic. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Shared a growler. Poured a slightly hazy golden color with a white head. Aroma is grapefruits, hops, sweet malts. Flavor was a nice tropical fruit hop mix with nice sweet malts. Flavor was great, bitterness is good, with a balanced finish. Surprised.

750 ml growler from the Farmstead. A slightly hazy light orange brew. Lacy head. Good carbonation. Sweet-spice aromas. Flavor profile has a very well balanced sweetness. Hop profile is fruity-spice-citrus. Some grapefruit. More spice. Some spruce. Lingering bitter-citrus peel flavors. Very nice - better than Heady Topper!

UPDATED: APR 18, 2016 Capping bottle, or half a growler. Cloudy orange colour, lots of lace. Hoppy, fresh and citrus aroma. Above average mouthfeel, but hop pellet bitterness. Raw and not the greatest drinkability. Dissapointing experience. I was even more disapointed when having it again from growler 4 years later.

Big thanks to Kan for sharing. Excited to try another Hill Farmstead. As this was my second Hill Farmstead, my impression overall of both of them was that they are very focused beers. They seem to highlight the hops and that’s about it, which is not a bad thing at all. Extremely clean and both beers finished very dry. I could really start to crave this straight forward bold style. In the taste and aroma there is plenty of tropical fruit, piney resinous hops, pineapple and lemon. Huge flavor but not too thick or too sweet. Really just a well made beer.

piscator34 (2300) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - APR 29, 2012
Growler sample via and shared with oakbluff. Murky gold in colour with moderate carbonation. Aromas are a blend of tropical and pink grapefruit smelling hops, a bit of cut grass and mild pale malt. Papaya upfront in the mouth, followed by pink grapefruit, pale malt, minerals, and a bit of grass. Firm bitterness, but less than you’d expect from the hopping level. Kick ass stuff to say the least.

Hazy golden, persistent small white cap, loads of pine and pineapple, some grapefruit pith. Juicy mouthfeel with a lingering bit of astringency

Hazy gold 1 finger of head. Lots of lacing. Grapefruit zest, mango, floral hoppy aroma. Wave of bitter hops up front, grapefruit, pine, zesty with a bit of young pineapple. Good carbonation medium body.
