Growler... Cloudy golden ale with a small, creamy, white head. Good retention. The aroma is bursting-at-the-seams with an assortment of citrus and tropical fruits - passion fruit really stands out. Medium-bodied with soft carbonation. The flavor leans way bitter, really showcasing those high alpha Citra hops. Lengthy, bitter finish as well. Growler courtesy of landhoney!

packs a wallop but lets you down gently. just poured myself the dregs of a growler...this baby looks like the beers that moe pours on the simpsons. tastes like a nice pine forest but decently balanced for such a haughty flavorful IPA.

auerbrau (3147) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - AUG 18, 2012
750mL Bottle. Catty, piney alcoholic raw greeness. The aroma does rise up and kiss me like HF’s other Double IPAs. A nip of raw garlic and onion comes through. There’s a slight astringency and a slight dusty quality to the bitterness that shaves a few points off the top. I’m also not getting into the hint of green onion that comes through. Feels drier and less bitter. The alcohol is really warm for the beer, somehow. Still very good, leaps and bounds above most Double IPAs, but in my opinion, not as good as the other HF Double IPAs I’ve had.

grouuuwwwwler. lugged all the fucken way back from vinnie testeverde knows where. big potent bitter dank resin, spruce, and bright pine needles. much more astringent than typical HF hoppy beers. also some bitter grapefruit. wet hops. dry mouthfeel. clean. def hop forward. prefer a bit more balance. leaves a dry resin pine note in the mouth. good, but definitely preferred the society and solitude 1 and 3, which were more balanced.

Thanks to Deuane for grabbing me a growler of this one from the brewery. A - Pours hazy golden orange with a dense two finger tall white head leaving sticky rings of lace down the entire glass. S - Smells of fresh citric fruit zest, pungent hops, fresh cut grass, pine needles and some light caramel malt sweetness. T - Starts off with a ton of hop bitterness that lasts through the finish. The galaxy and citra hops work well together but they are hard to tell them apart at times. Hints of citric fruit zest, grass and pine as well as some sweet caramel help round things out. The finish is quite bitter, lingering on the palate long after the finish. M - Medium body with moderate carbonation. Lots of bitterness throughout with a dry finish, no alcohol detectable at all. O - A very good DIPA yet again from Hill Farmstead. Not as good as some of their other hoppy beers but it was still a very enjoyable, easy drinking beer.

Stine (1464) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 14, 2012
On tap at Three Penny Tap Room, Montpelier VT. Golden, sunny aroma of kiwi, pineapple and mango with a certain earthiness to it that’s darkly sweet, and pungent. There’s a lot of the same stone-fruitiness in the flavor, imbued heavily with weed, green and fragrant and cloudy; malt is comfortably present, lightly flavored but tightly packed. Alcohol lends a mild sheen to the palate which is rich, but still crisp; finishes smoothly, with a sticky, dandelion flavored bitterness. A fine example of complicated simplicity; lowish alcohol, herbal/tropical hop combo, light but substantive malt.

On draft at Hill Farmstead Saison Festival in the retail shop, consumed as soon as it was filled. Beautiful cloudy amber-orange pour with a vivacious frothy white head. Nose and flavor really bring both of the blended beers out, with that beautiful biting lemon zest and grassy Citra character mixing with a more approachable, nectary Galaxy character, though big piney dankness comes through as well. Obscenely drinkable, as usual for Shaun, for a double IPA. Perfect crisp carbonation, but not so effervescent as to hide the complexity of the mix. Outstanding.

Tap from Farmhouse Tap. Pours straw with no head or lacing. Aromas of tangerine with some grass and lemon. Medium resin and pine bitter finish. Nice stuff.

pushkinwow (1955) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 13, 2012
On tap at Farmhouse Tap and Grill during Vermont Brewers Festival weekend. Cloudy light amber with white head. Marijuana, orange and grapefruit, light sourness, quite bitter, more malt and resin towards the end with some grass and fresh. Full body, moderate carbonation, nice bitterness that becomes sweeter on the finish, great balance.
