750ml swing-top growler shared with blankboy and GregClow, via JerCraigs. Quite hazy orange-yellow - decent white head. Smell and taste - citra; juicy, some alcohol, so fruity - screw it, great beer.
Fully hazed pure gold. Generous aroma of lavender, Valencia orange, mango and the quietest touch of sea salt, playing into a baguette like pale malt sensation common to these single hop offerings. Flavor has a coconut and lime fruit component that bleeds into the superb softness of the malt; seamless integration of clean and silky flavors from every source, almost like a custard that leaves no sugar. A fair amount of unripe mango and green banana flavor. Delicious texture as always. Will revisit with a larger sample size. skrip (230) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 2, 2017

750 growler poured into a Hill Farmstead oversized wine glass.
A~ darkish copper orange, nice fluffy white head and a crazy amount of lacing!
S~ lots of citrus, it almost smells like some kind of juice. slight pine earthnessy follows and of course some bitterness.
T~ of course theres a lot of citrus just like the nose. pineapple, orange, lemon, lime, etc... followed by a big piney flavor. and is it appropriate to say this tastes "imperial"? haha aside from the thicker, sightly boozy (not so much in the taste, you can just tell. you know?) its almost the same as regular Citra.
M~ nice carbonation as to be expected from HF, slightly thick, smooth, and a little dryness from the hops.
O~ not bad at all, but nothing compared to the Ephraim that i drank last night lol i love all the citrus notes and thats probably why this stands out for most people. theres not one HF thats not worth a least a taste!
On tap at As Is. Pours a cloudy yellow amber. Aroma is damp, grass, wood, oak, mild hops. Very interesting. Medium to high bitterness. Incredibly smooth finish. Medium bodied. Very smooth and gulpt. Excellent. thornecb (6090) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 9, 2017
Pours hazy apple gold into a shaker. Bright white head with good retention recedes to coat surface. Pineapple, weed and mango aromas. Soft with sweet caramel and dough upfront turning to passion fruit and mango before the lasting mild pith finish. Nice. Chalumeaux (1758) - Middleton, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 7, 2017

Very, very smooth and extremely crushable. Balanced on a knifes edge, though perhaps not as hop pungent as I would like, it is still an exceptional big IPA. MannyGoldberg (259) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - APR 11, 2017

Notes: On tap at Tørst (Apr 17)
4 oz pour on draft at ChurchKey during the Hill Farmstead tap takeover on 4/1/2017. Not an April Fool’s Joke. Hazy orange with off-white head. Aromas of tropical fruit, citrus, floral, pine. Tastes of citrus, pine, tropical fruit, floral notes, garlic. Medium body with a dry finish. Great stuff, enjoyed it more than the Double Nelson. ljthiessen (1448) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAR 27, 2017
Growler. Totally opaque creamy gold-yellow pour with a white head. Aroma is fruity and creamy, mango, pineapple, some soft citrus. Taste is rich and fruity, thick body, slightly tangy with tropical fruit and a touch of mandarin orange. Really nice.
