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 isn’t 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 Hill’s 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

Draft at Hill 3rd Anniversary. Pours a cloudy orange yellow color with a finger of foam. The nose is ripe grapefruit, citrus pith and juicy orange. The palate follows the nose with a juicy round full mouthfeel and palate pleasing citrus that flows into a bitter quenching finish. Damn this is a tasty beer !!!

1 liter growler from HFS Brewery, poured on Wednesday. Bright yellow color with large lasting head that produced huge soapy lacing. The retention is crazy. The aroma’s in this brew are some of the best I have ever experienced in a beer. Citrus for days…. Grapefruit, passion fruit and tangerine. Hints of bread malts. The flavor is simply juicy fruits. The fruits are so forward that is sweet but not cloying. Lots of hop flavors without the bitterness. Really not aggressive at all which is a marvel in itself. The flavor is truly amazing. Texture is all wet, juicy hops. I didn’t feel the 8 % ABV until after the second glass, alcohol notes doesn’t exist here. DAMN Mr. Hill has done it again!

From 10/25 notes. 750ml growler purchased at the brewery 10/23, drank two days later. Pours hazy yellow gold with 1 finger head. Nose is citrus aromas that blend together, some lemon, lime, grassy notes. Mouthfeel is rich, malty with a good balance of carbonation. Taste is big lemon, orange, very hoppy but balanced, some fruit, apricot, some faint pine, wheat, restrained. Finish is clean bitterness with sweet doughy honey notes, some citrus notes, complex. Wonderful.

UPDATED: MAY 10, 2014 On tap at Blackback Pub 3/22/13. Pours a hazy straw, almost looks like a mimosa or a wheat. Thin white head that leaves loose lacing. Nose is citrus through and through, almost acidic. Taste is citrus, acidic, grapefruit juice aftertaste, bright, floral, great. My first solely citra beer and I’m impressed. Overall awesome. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours out a cloudy orange color with a small off white head. Aroma is of lots of juicy citrus fruits, light cat piss, and some tropical fruits. Taste is of loads of citrus hops, light fruity notes, tropical fruits, resiny hops, with a nice bitter finish. This was rather complex for the lower ABV. Tasty Stuff.
