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 (750 ml). Filled at the brewery 8 days ago. Unclear glowing straw color with a beautiful medium persistent white head and good lacing. Aroma is of intense tropical fruits, citrus, slight resinous notes and sweet malt. Taste is slightly to moderately sweet (never cloying) with intense tropical fruits, sweet malts, slight resinous presence and a moderate bitter finish. Medium body. Good carbonation. Dry. Very good DIPA. Extremely drinkable. Intensely hoppy aroma. Another great hoppy beer from HF.

Growler, 05/06/2013, thanks to quackus42. Pours hazy orange, creamy head settles to a nice crema on the surface, sticky lacing left around the ring of the glass. Aroma is juicy, cantaloupe, passion fruit, pineapple, tangerine, soft bread malts underneath giving a base. Taste is soft cantaloupe, tangerine and grapefruit, pulpy and juicy, nice fruity bitterness. Full, creamy palate, not sticky at all. Wow.

750 ml. growler. It pours a hazy light orange color with a tall white head. The aroma is really nice and fresh with grapefruit, pineapple, a little onion and garlic… really good and nicely balanced. The flavor is wonderful with an incredibly soft mouthfeel (HF well water??) and intense hop flavor of grapefruit, pineapple, a little peach and onion spice. Very subtle and smooth bitterness. It’s amazing how well this growler travelled across the country. Perfect carbonation, freshness and no signs of oxidation. Just beautiful.

750mL growler, pours a cloudy opaque golden orange with a small white head. Aroma of various tropical fruits, citrus hops, that typical "cat piss" smell that the citra hops, and some cereal malts. Flavour is quite bitter, with citrus hops, some dry tropical fruity notes, a little grassy hop notes, and some dry cereal malts to back. Very bitter, but also wonderfully robust on the palate. Citra not being one of my favourite hops by itself, I didn’t enjoy this as much as Hill Farmstead’s other IIPAs; though this is exceptionally well-made and very highly drinkable. Excellent.

Marheb (2052) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 24, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 20, 2014 L’arôme ne laisse aucun doute sur ce qu’on a devant nous, un citra séquestré et soumis à une minutieuse torture par la main de Shaun. Les saveurs de tangerine, ananas, mangue enduits d’une résine me font saliver entre chaque gorgée. Le liquide est tout en puissance mais garde le confort et la délicatesse typique HF. Le corps est douillet avec une effervescence suave.

Liter bottle from the brewery. Pours foggy haze with a little head. Tastes very great with a large grapefruit finish. Very citrus. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

750 ml growler. Huge thanks to Tom again! Pours a cloudy gold color with a medium foamy head that fades nicely to a ring. Leaves some nice oily lacing, I always love the appearance of HF beers. Aroma is an assault of citra hops, more than any other citra IPA I’ve had. Light mustiness with oranges, grapefruit, lime, and tropical fruit. Tastes like chewing on citra hops, so much citrus and tropical fruit. Very light sweetness and moderate bitterness. Smooth and oily. Another awesome DIPA from HF but I still think I like Abner and Ephraim better.

Leighton (11027) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 25, 2013
Growler from the brewery. Pours cloudy gold with a foamy white head. Tons of rich citrus in the nose, orange, grapefruit, mango, melon. Medium to big sweet flavor, some lightly bready pale malts, hints of tangy lemon, more pithy orange and grapefruit. Medium to full bodied with fine, massaging carbonation. Light sticky and pithy citrus fruits in the finish, melon, tangerine, grapefruit, orange. Delicious stuff. Rich and well balanced.

Growler: Thanks, Alex! Super murky, radiant yellow body with a soapy, foamy, bone-white head on top. Aroma is just as you’d expect... Explodes with citrus peel, orange zest, grapefruit shavings, mild peppery & herbal leaf notes, faint lemon, & a back-end hint of some dankness & grassy, green onion. Barely any malt to speak of, a hint of distant bread, maybe. Some of that cracker malt in the flavor up front, but don’t be mistaken - this thing is all about the hops. Dry, weedy hops, crisp orange peel, grapefruit flesh, tangerines, light guava & tropical notes join the citric ruckus, hint of mango. Back-end shows more of the herbal, white pepper coated hop leaves, cut grass, faint green onion... Just a kiss of sugar cookie malt sweetness. Balance? No. This is hop crazy, but it’s lovely. Alcohol is barely detectable. Another great DIPA from Hill Farmstead.
