750ml growler. Hazy yellow with a frothy white head. Flavors are grapefruit, mango, lychee and sweet malts with resinous and floral notes. Medium body, moderate carbonation, smooth texture.

On Tap at Hill Farmstead 1st Ann. Golden pour. Ive been looking forward to this one and it lived up to my expectations. Aroma is a cornucopia of citrus hops with touches of mango tropical fruit. Crisp and refreshing mouthfeel. Flavor explodes on your tongue the second it hits. Grapefruit, Tangerine, and Mango sweetness with bitter tangy hoppiness. Damn good.

From tap. Pours hazy orange with a small to no head. Aroma is solid citrusy, grapefruity and peachy. Dense hoppy and yet smooth fruity. Lingering peachy and citrusy hops flavoured. Bitter and dry, fruity sweet impression into the finish. Nice.

From growler and on tap.
Aroma : Great citrusy hops with notes of passion fruits. Leafy and floral. Nice malt too.
Taste : Quite bitter with lots of citrusy hops. Notes of passion fruits. Leafy and floral. Sharp bitterness on finish with nice fruits. Nice malt all around.
Overall : Great stuff, nice hops and nice malt. One week old growler had significantly less aroma than the fresh tap version. Really nice DIPA but I don’t think it’s better than abner and I think it’s not as good as the best batch of Ephraim. Still a world class DIPA.

Tap at Capone’s for RBSG 2011. The pour is a cloudy, glowing, yellow with a whipped cream, bright white head. Nose is fresh kumquat and creamsickle with orange sherbet. Taste is full sweet melons with peach, kumquat, sweet grapefruit, Valencia orange, even getting a little meaty like durian and jackfruit. Palate is wildly soft, nearing that ridiculously fluffy softness in FFF Apocalypse Cow. Overall, it could be mistaken for pineapple milkshake. This is how DIPA should be. Just delete all those cheesy, syrupy, sticky, red and brown and orange DIPAs that have taken over the world and replace them with either Hill Farmstead Double Citra or FFF Apocalypse Cow. Then I might not hate DIPAs anymore.

MartinT (7677) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 9, 2011
My Bottom Line:
Mango and pineapple allusions proliferate in this magnificent Double IPA, leading to a sustained resinous bitterness.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A creamy sheet of foam lays atop the hazy honeyed yellow.
-There might be more complexity in Abner, but this single-hop Double IPA is just as exciting to drink, over and over again.
-As usual for HFarmstead, the big, soft bubbles and lean residual sugars make this immensely drinkable despite the flavor intensity.
-Malts offer lenient caramel passages, but these mostly serve the bouncing tropical fruit.
-This is a superb supplement to the Hill Farmstead Double IPA family, but Abner is so constantly impressive that I will find it difficult to migrate away from it.

From the growler and on tap at the brewery.

Draft at the Blackback Pub and Fly Shop - Love the citra hops... double the love of the "regular" citra single hop.

daknole (8863) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUN 18, 2011
Cloudy apricot. Grassy, citrus peel, lantana flowers(yes). Flavor is smooth and delicious with tons of grapefruit peel, light bitterness. Damn good.

yobdoog (1888) - Woodridge NY, New York, USA - JUN 19, 2011
Cloudy yellow orange color. Aroma is nice and hoppy. Citrus, grapefruit and lemon zest. Flavor is bright and bitter hops with a touch of floral accents. Grapefruit and some malt sweetness to balance the hop juices. Nice full body, great.

nightrider (754) - encinitas, California, USA - JUN 20, 2011
Pour from a growler sent from the brewery thanks to Tucker. Cloudy orange hues with a nice white head. Aromas of bread and lemon. Flavors are of fresh hops, orange, grass with a good malt back. Not syrupy or too sweet. Long tasty finish and well balanced. Excellent beer and stoked to drink it.
