On tap at HF anniversary. Hazy yellow pour, white foam, heavy lacing. Delicious citra aroma, fresh lemonade, resinous hop smells and a touch of honey. Taste is hoppy, lots of lemon flavours with a bitter finish. Very refreshing palate, my favourite IIPA from HF thus far.

pineypower (2504) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - JUN 5, 2011
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.

Floral, hops aroma on this hazy orange pour. Bitter yet pleasant hop flavor with a sweeter, malt backbone. Smooth and small lingering bitter finish.

This poured a darker cloudy yellow color with a white head, so excited to try my first hill farmstead IPA!. Aroma was straight lovely citra hops, nothing more nothing less, just juicy fruity hops. Flavor is just a little bit less intense than the aroma, but still very well done, and extremely refreshing. A hop flavor bomb, but not overly bitter at all which I love.

12 oz snifter at Pinocchio’s in Media. This poured a cloudy golden orange with a finger-and-a-half, off-white head which settled to a coating. Lacing was spotty. Nose was citrus, especially orange and grapefruit, and pine with a slight alcohol back. Taste includes the citrus, of course, but there is a strong caramel malt presence as well. The finish is dry and bitter with little hint of the 8% alcohol. Body was slick, medium with moderate carbonation for a DIPA. This is a very drinkable and I would not hesitate to go for it again.

Lightly hazy golden orange with a big retained white head... huge aroma of orange grapefruit... livelyish, loads of citrus, decent body, quite drinkable, not very bitter, possibly some honey...

UPDATED: APR 23, 2013 In short: A big uber-hoppy blonde IPA full of exotic and tropical fruits and way too easy to drink
How: Tap at the brewery
The look: Cloudy yellow-blonde body topped by a small white head
In long: Nose is classic Citra to me, which means tropical/exotic fruits and cat urine. I just can’t help it but get cat urine from any heavily Citra-hopped beer. Taste is big bed of fresh chewy cereals and a lot of exotic and tropical fruits and light notes of cheese. The bitterness level is probably pretty high but the beer is never aggressive, this is not a biting harsh bitterness, it is round and only slightly resinous. Overall this beer is as good as a Citra monster can be but there is something with me and Citra (cat urine) that prevents me from enjoying it as much as other Hill Farmstead double ipas. But objectively, this is a great beer. I don’t know I seem to be the only one to notice cat urine aroma in Citra-hopped beers, maybe I’m better at noticing things than any of you guys, I bet none of you has noticed that that the word "OK" looks like a little person lying on his side.

Growler, thanks to GlouGlouBurp. Had this with the Galaxy, and wish I would have cracked this one first. Much more subtle and less bitter, but not in a bad way. Sweet and juicy citrus fruits and candied sugar flavors. Slightly mellow and on the lighter side. No harshness at all, even when you want a little bit. Simply delicious.
