750 mL growler. Pours an extremely turbid apricot, the classic fluffy HF head. Nose holds gorgeous scallion, lemon rind, white grapefruit, bark mulch, hot wet grass, garlic; lovely. Flavor is softer, with citrus becoming more pronounced, but that lovely dank character still providing backbone. Perfect, clean, crisp and dry palate. I actually think Citra is an overrated hop in terms of its usual character, but sweet lord is this outstanding. Thanks to Shaun, Bob, Phil, and all of the crew!

750mL growler, sent from my sugar daddy, pours a cloudy pale golden with a medium white head. Nose is classic Hill Farmstead, with loads of fresh floral hops, fresh meadows, and pine -- wonderful aromatics. Flavour is exactly the same, with a fresh bouquet of floral hops, some pine, and the unmistakeable "cat piss" quality from the citra. Dry as can be, with a very pleasant astringency on the finish. Another wonderful (I)PA from the masters.

UPDATED: SEP 1, 2014 Pours a hazy light golden with a medium white head that leaves superior lacing. Nose is of citrus, tropical fruits and fresh cereals. Taste is of tropical fruits, light flour with a moderately high bitterness. Some perfumey mangoes. Body is light, carbonation medium-high. Overall a really nice hoppy offering by HFS again!

750 ml fill bottle purchase at the brewery on August 21, 2014. Murky yellow cream, little head. Fresh Citra hop aroma, very juicy. Juicy citrus hop taste, somewhat dry, good dry bitterness. That’s how you respect the Citra hop!

Hazy yellow pour, a thumbs worth of head. Grapefruit, citrus zest and peels. and mildly dank in both aroma and taste. Slick oily mouthfeel. Went back for another pint

On tap at the brewery. Cloudy yellow pour with a big white head. Enticing grapefruit hop bouquet. The taste follows suit with the perfect amount of hoppy bitterness. Perfect balance with a big bold flavor profile. Good body.

Pours a softly pale lemon yellow with a hazy little blush inside. A creamy head of white foam that fell slowly and left good lace. Nose is bright lemon peel. As it warms some tropical mango and beautiful floral come forward. Light and flaky biscuit, with a drizzle of honey. Floral and sweet herbal back notes. Taste is lovely and even delicate. This beer has a superb mouthfeel. It’s got a just a little breaddiness, just a bit of flaky sweet biscuit to make the mouthfeel creamy and give it depth. The hops are floral and lemony. The bright lemon peel with the citric tartness lightly underneath. The tropical softer stone fruits in this are permeating the drink for a juicy and ripe taste. There is a moderate but very soft bitter that is just one of the best bitters I have ever had. Light easy to drink and very flavorful. This beer will be an instant favorite.
