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.

VTHopHead (1511) - Barre, Vermont, USA - APR 7, 2012
Draft at Prohibition Pig - Pours a hazy golden-amber in color with a medium bright white head that held on to produce some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is citrus hoppy with caramel malts and some fruity esters... mango, peach? Flavor is citrus hops, some tropical fruits (mango!) and caramel malts. Finishes with lingering hop bitterness with some sweetness at the end. Really good...

A: Mildly Hazy Golden Straw Hue, Passes Some Light, White Head Ring, Some Lacing S: Citrus, Mildly Piney, Mildly Yeasty T: Citrus, Piney, Mild Yeasty M: Decent Carbonation, Medium Bodied, Mild Drying Overall, good but not a blow away DIPA, the yeast on the back end takes away from the hop character.

thome50 (987) - Boringville aka Irvine, California, USA - JUN 30, 2013
Pours a very light to yellow color with moderate white head. Aroma is muted with some grapefruit zest, slight dankness and pine. Taste is hay, pine, slight dank weed and some mild fruit. Weak mouthfeel. Rated blind in a DIPA tasting flight. Was not at all expecting this to be a Hill Farmstead.

50belair (2144) - Florida, USA - JUN 27, 2013
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.

MJGG (945) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 24, 2013
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.

bytemesis (2928) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JUN 22, 2013
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.
