Growler shared by yourefragile. Thanks Mike! The beer is yellowish, on the fringes of orange. It’s ever so slightly hazy, appearing clear for the most part. The head is about 1/2" thick and leaves a healthy amount of lacing behind. The aroma tells me I am in for a treat. Tropical citrus galore, with oranges, grapefruit, mango, pineapple. Oh yeah... All the wonderfully fresh fruit and hop flavors shine through brilliantly. Malt presence is virtually nonexistent, as it should be. The beer is medium bodied with a creamy feel. The finish is dry, with a lasting hop bitterness. Superb. Highly recommended. Serving type: growler Reviewed on: 06-30-2011

UPDATED: MAY 7, 2013 Growler shared by Seth. Cloudy yellow pour with a white head. Hoppy nose. Pine and floral hop notes. A little on the minerally side. Slightly unbalanced.. Original rating 4.0 Re-rate (another growler thanks to Seth). Enticing hop aromas. This version was much more balanced with fantastic citrus hop notes. Great mouthfeel and good body.

This is an outstanding brew. Pours a light amber with a thin head. The aroma is loaded with citrus and a little pine and fruit. The flavor has the citrus, pine and fruit over a nice malt profile. The finish is crisp and clean.

Draft. Hazy blonde amber with a lovely pillowy head. Citra hops shine through. Strong hop bitterness. Grapefruit pith. Cumquots. Lemon seeds. Citra through and through.

Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured hazy amber color with an average frothy white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Medium to heavy lemon citrus hop and resin aroma. Medium to full body with slick texture and soft carbonation. Moderate to heavy smooth bittersweet citrus flavor with a moderate to heavy bittersweet finish of average to long duration.This is a standout beer.

Looks good; light-orange with thin white lacing. Smells GREAT! Citra all the way! Fantastic! Tastes like it smells, but not quite as mind-blowing. Good on the palate too. Yes!

Growler into tulip. Hazy gold pour with a small white head. Nice aroma... Huge mixed citrus laced with mixed tropical fruit. Flavor follows with a soft piney, bitterness. The malt makes a subtle impact which I love. This is dangerously drinkable. I was able to quickly finish the 750mL growler. I wish I had more! This is up there with abner and ephraim.

deyholla (5972) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - JUL 13, 2012
Growler thanks to a trade! Pours a murky pale orange gold a near white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a nice citrus note with a hint of bitter grapefruit backed by light sweet grains. Flavor has more bitter grapefruit with notes of citrus and pine with just a hint of a grain backing.

Picked this up today at Hill Farmstead Brewery. Thanks Shaun for the very careful filling of this. Put it in the fridge and poured into a Hill Farmstead Glass (of course). Citra being my absolute favorite hop, I’m excited to try this.

A - This beer is beautiful. Subtle tangerine appearance soft and full of clouds. 2-Fingers of off-white head was formed on a slow formed. Not much lacing and subsided quickly.

S - Alright! Grapefruit, tangerines, birch and floral notes. The citra is absolutely amazing! DOUBLE of everything great about my favorite hop.

T - This is an extremely soft beer up front. I get the fresh lemon zest, orange pulp and grapefruit rinds. Bitterness approaches fast and swift as the liquid coats my tongue and leaves behind this very meaty intense bitterness that stays alive for quite a while. The only thing to do is simple take another sip.

M - Wow. Mouth filling carbonation. 80% carbonation on the mouth swish. Light body despite the Double IPA style and dry bitter finish.

O - This beer is perfect, remarkable. I need more. Fact: I would not drink anything else if I lived closer to this brewery. 2.5 hour each way is a lot of driving. Still, Shaun never fails to impress.
