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 (1453) - 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 (1842) - 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.

Draught at Farm House Tap and Grill. Orange gold with a high, pillowy, fine head. Big fruit noce, mostly tropical, with peach, mango, grapefruit, grass, honey biscuits. Very biscuity, grainy flavor, ckae, big sweetness, tropical fruit salad, esters, bread, sweet orange. Soft, silky body. Wonderful.

thirdeye11 (5393) - Dallas, Texas, USA - AUG 11, 2012
(draught) cloudy medium to light gold, creamy white head that laces well. Nose of candied grapefruit peel, slight farmhouse funk, and light grass. Taste of grapefruit zest, lightly bitter but really well balanced, cream, funk, not as complex as some other Hill Farmstead beers.

Pours a hazy honey color with a medium white head. Aroma is loaded with mango...touch of pine...great fruity/bitter balance. Flavor follows suit...beautiful stonefruits. Mouthfeel is medium and silky with a bitter dry grapefruity/mango finish.
