Had this at a share from a friend. Poured a nice golden rod. Citra, citra, citra on the nose. Pine and grass on the palate, with a little citrus and just enough malt. Very clean and dry finish.

Growler share thanks to homer321. Pours an orange color, with white head. Aroma is full citra, lots citra, did I mention citrus? Taste is citrus crazy too, almost abut bitter with the fruit notes. Light bodied, hides the boost really well. Could drink all day, very yummy.

Tap. Amazing fresh citrus nose, loads of grapefruit and a bit of dank weed, a touch of cotton candy sweetness. The taste is very dry for the abv, moderately bitter, but itís smooth, not chunky. Tastes of pineapple, apricot, pithy citrus peel and just a touch of honey. Incredible.

Hazy orange amber color with a medium sized, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of tangerine, floral hops, light pine, citrus, toast, and tropical fruits. Taste of tangerines, apricots, orange, citrus, light pine, some toast, grapefruit, and a bit of alcohol in the finish.

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, Iím 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.

Pours a cloudy golden, white head an good lacing. Aroma of piney hops, lots of tropical fruits, light citrus. Taste is full of tropical fruits, light citrus, faint malts (for the abv), medium body and medium carbonation. Very drinkable, delicious!

Growler - thanks Del! Pours hazy yellow-amber with a medium creamy off-white head that dissipates with very nice lacing. Aroma is citrus, pine resin, a touch of passionfruit. Flavor is about the same, light sweetness, light to medium bitterness, but very controlled bitterness as compared to the flavor explosion in the mouth from the hop resins. Medium body, prickly carbonation, oily mouthfeel. Yummy.

750ml Growler shared with bytemesis - thanks for the pour Mike! Removed the swing top with a slight "pop" sound and small traces of C02 glass leaking out. Poured deep and cloudy yellow with a nice fluffy head. Right away the aroma attacks the nose with resins, some grapefruit, tangerines, citrus, pine, crackers and slight straw/hay/grass on the exhale. First few sips I swished around in my mouth and got a massive sticky resiny mouthfeel with fizzy/tingly carbonation. The bitterness sits on the tongue, but isnít overpowering, unlocking lots of grapefruit, citrusy zest, crackery malt, doughy biscuit, with that awesome dry finish. Medium-to-high carbontion but soft on the palate. The mouthfeel on Hillís IPAs have yet to let me down. The lasting finishing are not too bitter, and has no astrigency. Killer lacing and decent sized legs. Very little trace of the ABV. Flavorful and delicious... I enjoyed this much better than the Double Galaxy
