On tap at Mikkeller bar. Hazy, amber-golden with a thin, white head. Fruity aroma with citrus, caramel malts, grape, sweet exotic fruits. Taste is bitter. Medium to full body with a creamy texture and a soft carbonation. Finishes dry and bitter with citrus, caramel and grape. Excellent, true to style DIPA

2L growler shared by Julien. Pours a beautiful slightly hazy blond with a decent creamy head. Aroma is danky hops, onions, citrus and pine. Taste is juicy citrusy hops, bready malts and light pine. A more important bready malts presence makes this one more quaffable than the averqage S&S. A huge success.

JulienHuxley (3427) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - OCT 4, 2014
2L growler, 2 days after visiting the brewery. Hazy glowing yello pour with lacy white head. Aroma is really nice and dank, light onion, great dank piney simoce, light citrusy grapefruit and lemon notes. Taste is lightly bitter, dank hop flavor, pure hop juice. Palate is med bodied with light carbonation, realllly tasty, damn this stuff is good.

cpetrone84 (1533) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 28, 2014
Pour is dark amber, very hazy, lots of white head with a thicker lace. Nose has some fresh cut grain, light pale malt and a touch of sticky caramel. Hops are a bit soapy first, then a very strong grapefruit rind, almost a sweaty grapefruit. Taste is a bit sweeter, lots of fresh grains up front, a fairly moderate malt presence, huge tropical hop punch. Still some grapefruit rind mid to late palate, some mangos and a touch of pineapple. Body is incredibly light and delicate, very nicely carbonated, just a clean crisp and slightly dry finish.

Growler thanks to Will. Pours a cloudy yellow orange with thick white head that lasts. The aroma is strong pine and citrus. Medium mouth with nice dry hop bite, citrus, nice light bitterness, juicy, very impressive.

Growler split at Zwanze ’14, massive thanks and largesse creditdom as always to Herr Schmidt, 20/09/14. Lightly hazed orange golden with moderate off white spotting and edgework. Nose is skunked up hoppage, pine, bitter citric peel, light smoke, citric sherbets, mandarin, yuzu. Taste comprises mandarin, dank hops, spice, tangy tropicana, peach, pine, light must. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Solid DIPA Aktion !!!

mcberko (7074) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 22, 2014
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.

Marheb (2297) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 20, 2014
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 (7378) - 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.
