Draft at Capone’s during PBW summer 2011. Poured hazy coppery orange with 1-finger off-white head. Nose is caramel malt, big mangoey resiny hops. Tasted complex, heavily IBU-laden, with that awesome crisp peppery fruity Citra hop just juicing all over the palate. This beer was excellent.

Bright yellow/orange. Nose is juicy hops, skunky, well water. Taste is super juicy hops, balanced bitterness, orange, slightly tangy finish, just so smooth and clean.

Sampled at the brewery and now drinking a growler I brought home, poured right into my brand new Hill Farmstead glass. Pours deep hazy yellow/golden, can’t see through it, with a big creamy white head on top. Aroma is lots of grass and hay mixed in with both tropical and citrus fruits. Aggressive in the bitter hop notes, and this shows in the flavor as well. But as it warms it takes on a pineapple flavor alongside hay, grass, mango, and lots and lots of citrus. Dry body, very drinkable, slightly creamy, and really nice. Another winner from these guys.

Pour moi, le mot «Bonheur» - avec un B majuscule, rime avec «Double Citra». Growler rapporté de l’endroit et dégusté le lendemain avec Ju-Lo et Dominique; cette bière sublimissime est le témoin du début de nos vacances estivales! Couleur jaune doré, teint éclatant - voire scintillant, tout de cette bière est spectaculaire pour l’ensemble des sens (sauf peut-être pour l’ouïe). La mousse - cette mousse blanche comme neige qui s’agrippe à mon verre n’en finit pas de dessiner des dentelles me remplit de bonheur et témoigne d’une bière onctueuse, affirmée et structurée comme peu d’impériale IPA peuvent se vanter de l’être! En regardant le tout, je ne me rends même pas compte que machinalement, j’approche mon grand nez de mon verre, comme hypnotisé. Le verre est encore à une distance d’un avant-bras de mon nez qu’une bague de jus de mangue me fouette en plein visage. Oh là là que c’est olfactif! Ça sent la mangue, la pêche, l’annana... Un nez totalement enivrant! En bouche, tout est absolument exquis. En plus d’avoir du corps, cette bière n’est pas qu’une explosion gratuite de houblons. On reconnaît la signature fermière et sauvage de la Maison qui manoeuvre étroitement entre les styles Saison et IPA. Pendant que Dominique reste sans voix, les yeux grands ouverts incapables de cligner, je savoure ce liquide complexe,, prodigieusement savoureux, explosif comme de la dynamite et délicat comme la soie. C,est long en bouche sans être trop amer. L’alcool n’est pas. Ça goûte l’arc-en-ciel Le Citra est magique. Hill Farmstead est magique! Une Grande parmi les Grandes IIPA !!!

UPDATED: JUL 11, 2012 On tap at Hill Farmsteads first anniversary celebration. Hazy golden pour with a massive white head. The nose held every type of citrus incarnation ever imagined. Orange, orangepeel, lemon, lemon peel, and grapefruit. A nice floral resin complemented this nicely. The flavor held the same citrus onslaught, with a light caramel malt that provided excellent balance. Dankly thick palate with a resinous finish.

Pours a hazy pumpkin orange, with medium head, and great, sporadic lacing throughout. Aromas of grapefruit, honey, pineapple, vanilla, white oak. Taste is some of the creamiest, and juiciest collection of hops, malts, and caramel. Absolutely amazing. Tons of citrus flavors mixed in with a nice malt sweetness. It Kind of reminded me of a jucier mongo or hop 15. Great beer, Cheers to Sean Hill.

on tap at hill farmstead harvest festival. bright straw, slight haze, with a nice white head, good retention and lacing. loads of mangos and citrus goodness. hint of ginger, fresh, never boozy or cloying - light malted sweetness. lively and soft carbonation, medium body, silkyness, medium long citrusy finish.

Hazy golden orange color, moderate white head. Grapefruit, orange, peach, mango, and grass. Initial sweetness balanced by mild hop bitterness that lingers briefly. Crisp, light-bodied, and refreshing. Small alcohol presence that is more an afterthought.

Got this growler via trade. First Hill Farmstead beer ever!! Pours hazy golden with a medium head a good lacing. Quality piney hop aroma with slight hints of citrus. The taste is wonderfully smooth with piney citrus flavors shining through. The mouth feel is somewhat creamy and leaves a great hop taste on the palate. A wonderful IPA that is incredibly smooth and refreshing. Can't wait to visit the brewery! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: NOV 10, 2014 Growler @ another tasting. Aroma is huge, and I mean huge, Citra, like opening a fresh vacuum bag of Citra, massive citrus. Intense. Flavour is creamy citric citrussy Citra madness. Bunch of other stuff. Whatever. Wow.
