750mL bottle, sent from my sugar daddy, pours an opaque golden orange with a medium white head. Nose is certainly a West Coast hop bomb, with resinous hops, tons of different juicy fruits, like tangerine and mangos, candied sugar, and maltier backbone than most hoppy Hill Farmstead beers. Flavour is along those same lines, with a sweet flavour profile than typical for HF IPAs, bringing out resinous hops, lots of tropical fruits, some residual candied sugar and a caramel bready malt backbone. It’s a kickass IIPA for sure, but perhaps not up to the usual standard of HF’s hoppy beers due to the higher sweetness. Still, excellent stuff.

Malts mielleux et concentrés surmontés de houblons machables floraux, agrumés et sucrés. Pas dans la même gamme céréalière et croustillante auquel je suis habitué, néanmoins savoureux.

Scopey (6865) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 20, 2014
Growler thanks to Leighton. It pours hazy golden-orange with a medium white head. The nose is soft, juicy, orange, tangerine, passion fruit, light soap and sherbet. The taste is crisp, juicy, orange peel, light booze, mango, peach, grapefruit, candied peel, sherbet and earth with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation foamy mouth-feel. Juicy and fruity. Nice.

Courtesy of the man, the myth, the legend... Leighton. Pours a beautiful bright golden orange (the looks are legendary), fluffy white head. Aroma is tangerine, citrus, grapefruit, grass, funky pithy citrus mold, melon, faint pine. Flavor is light and fruity, pale bready malt backbone - completely masks the ABV, no sign of alcohol just deliciousness. Fairly light body, finish of the beer is not very full.. Actually a little dry. Overall, high end stuff.

Reynolds314 (2334) - Connecticut, USA - SEP 14, 2014
Growler poured into teku glass. Hazy goldenrod color with thick white head that leaves nice laceing. Aroma is mandarin oranges, grapefruit rind, light lemon and cheesiness. Taste is dry and sharply bitter finish. Flavor comes off like citrus fruit salad and citrus zest. Great beer. Oh how I missed fresh hf pales.

hopscotch (9163) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 18, 2014
Growler... Hazy yellow pour with a small, creamy, white head. The aroma offers a melding of grapefruit, passionfruit and spicy, peppery hops. Full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and vibrant carbonation. Excellent bitterness and breadiness in the flavor - rindy, tannic hops upheld by a fragile, cracker malt foundation. Crisp, bitter finish. Bottle courtesy of the one and only, ever-generous landhoney!

yourefragile (138) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - APR 10, 2014
On tap at HF, growler shared by Starr, thanks. Pours a dark hazed golden orange with a dense white head with sticky lacing. Sweet throughout, over ripe pineapple and mango with a pine and grass bitter finish. Not my favorite of the SS series.

750 ml flip top on a couple occasions. Pours a hazy golden color with a small white head. The aroma and flavor have grapefruit citrus, some tropical notes and big catty hops (especially in the nose). The flavor shows much more balance with the malts standing up to the grapefruit, earthy and catty hops. Solid bitterness to the finish. Another solid beer from HF.

750 growler pour shared by alexsdad06. Light golden. Nose pine mango fruit hop. Taste grapefruit bite up front. Floral hop and some fruit hop. Mid palate sweet and very pleasing bitter finish. Really nice, exceptionally clean flavors.

apotekhin (57) - ISRAEL - OCT 13, 2013
Strong aroma - but not as strong as other DIPA. Sweet and and smooth with grassy flavor. Caramel and malt flavor, very rich and full body with a semi dry bitter finish. Not a huge fan of the style but that was perfect.
