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.

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...

750 mL growler. Unknown original review date. Light golden orange. Cloudy with a small head. Maybe due to the growler? Smell is pine and then oodles of grapefruit. One-note Columbus hops. Grapefruit overload. Taste is sweet and citrusy hops nearly giving it the tartness of a fresh grapefruit. I expect it to turn tart as if I was eating a grapefruit, but it turns very bitter, like the pith. Very bitter flavor, medium-low carbonation. Lots of bitter hops make it tougher to drink that most IPAs. Interesting. Way too grapefruity. Fascinating taste, but maybe too extreme. Another interesting experiment from HF. Had a later batch of this and really enjoyed it.

Draft at railroad. Pours sort of cloudy orange with a medium sized white head. The aroma has some lemon zest, citrus, pine. The taste has a very nice citrus punch, medium bitterness, a fruity, pulpy finish. This guy is very delicate for the abv but excellent.

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 (1252) - Morro Bay via Orange County, 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.

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 (952) - 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.

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.
