The pour was hazy and cloudy like the sky yesterday except the color of gold with a white head. Aroma hop bomb for sure with a lot of citrus on the nose. More citrus on the taste with a plethora of hoppiness. Oh, what a wonderful beer!

Flip-top growler from joebones3. Thanks! Hazy gold color, tight white foam on top, spotty lacing left on the glass. The aroma has big whiffs of tropical fruit; lemon rind, mango, and grapefruit coming to mind. Theres some pine noted as well. Not really any malt here. Going down this is medium-bodied, getting a little doughy malt flavor underneath a blast of tropical fruity hops. A bit herbal. The finish has a lengthy dry and bitter finish with notes of pine. Some alcohol heat sneaks in there toward the back end. Incredibly drinkable, though. I like the lower abv for a Double IPA. Excellent stuff.

Oh my. NOT disappointed. Holy crap. Hazy yellow/orange with a large long-lasting fluffy off white head. Smells like heaven - floral, citrus and tropical fruit, not much alcohol. Taste follows, a little more alcohol and the floral bitterness asserts more than the tropical fruit, and wonderfully catty too - could go 9/10 too. Perfect light body, moderate acidity and alcohol with a medium-long bitter finish - so good, and soooooo easy to drink too.

UPDATED: MAY 14, 2012 Huge thanks to a great trader for getting this growler out my way. Served in a Hill Farmstead long stem tulip. Pours a nice orange color with a good white head and a bit of lacing. Nose carries loads of dank hops. Columbus heaven. Cant get enough. Body is light-medium with really nice bitterness. Fantastic. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Shared a growler. Poured a slightly hazy golden color with a white head. Aroma is grapefruits, hops, sweet malts. Flavor was a nice tropical fruit hop mix with nice sweet malts. Flavor was great, bitterness is good, with a balanced finish. Surprised.

750 ml growler from the Farmstead. A slightly hazy light orange brew. Lacy head. Good carbonation. Sweet-spice aromas. Flavor profile has a very well balanced sweetness. Hop profile is fruity-spice-citrus. Some grapefruit. More spice. Some spruce. Lingering bitter-citrus peel flavors. Very nice - better than Heady Topper!

UPDATED: APR 18, 2016 Capping bottle, or half a growler. Cloudy orange colour, lots of lace. Hoppy, fresh and citrus aroma. Above average mouthfeel, but hop pellet bitterness. Raw and not the greatest drinkability. Dissapointing experience. I was even more disapointed when having it again from growler 4 years later.
