Growler pour courtesy of Vinny. Pours literally glowing honey mustard yellow with a tasteful, smooth white head. Lacing is clean and spotty. Aroma is pineapple and orange zest. Taste is full of pineapple, orange, lemon, and some clean resin in the finish. Juicy upfront transitioning to pleasantly dry in the finish. This beer is fucking superb; inspired, elegant, and wonderful. Beautiful IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

amazing nose which spoke of its taste prior to drinking, hazy farmstyle beer which likely exceeds IBU which can be determined by a human, life changing brew

Arômes d’orange, zeste de citron et une touche d’alcool. Un parfum de fraicheur me dit d’arrêter de sentir et de boire! En bouche, c’est un party de fruits. Tout est trop et très balancé. Le houblon citra est dominant, frais et gouteux. Des effluves d’orange, citron, pamplemousse et d’ananas se font sentir. Un peu d’astringence mais à 8% d’alcool, c’est plutôt normal. L’amertume est puissante avec des pointes de pin et de zeste d’orange. Un autre chef-d’œuvre de HF. C’est comme boire un jus de fruits au déjeuné. J’en boirais tous les jours.

Location: Pour from a two litter Hill Farmstead growler I just picked up at the brewery, 7/7/15




Aroma: The aroma is full of bright tropical and citrus hops, peach, mango, floral notes, and some light malt. Amazing. It really just hits all the marks of a tropical forward, hoppy beer.


Appearance: From the bulbous growler it pours a murky looking bright (like almost highlighter level) orange with a thick, frothy, white head and some lace that pretty much coats the glass.


Flavor: This one drinks really nicely with a strong tropical/fruity hop flavor, great balance. The hops shine through here with just a right on mix of the bitterness and the sweetness.


Palate: Medium-plus bodied, with a smooth, creamy feel, soft carbonation, and a clean, dry finish.


Overall Impression:
This is one of those beer that the more I drink the more I like. From the sample at the brewery, I thought this was my favorite of their excellent beers that were pouring that day, but I’ve had a good 2+ glasses of it at this point, and know I know, this beer is an absolute knockout. The brightness of the fruity hops, the perfect cleanness of the bitterness, the smoothness of the mouthfeel, everything here is just right on. Seriously, for anyone who wonders if it’s worth driving out to the middle of fucking nowhere to get their beers, my answer is yes.

UPDATED: JUN 13, 2014 On draft at Capones. Pours a deep orange caramel with a small off white head. Aroma of fresh citra hops and grapefruit. Taste is bitter and much the same as the aroma. Excellent.

DocLock (11110) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 7, 2011
Draft at Capone’s during PBW summer 2011. Poured hazy coppery orange with 1-finger off-white head. Nose is caramel malt, big mangoey resiny hops. Tasted complex, heavily IBU-laden, with that awesome crisp peppery fruity Citra hop just juicing all over the palate. This beer was excellent.

Bright yellow/orange. Nose is juicy hops, skunky, well water. Taste is super juicy hops, balanced bitterness, orange, slightly tangy finish, just so smooth and clean.

BMMillsy (1788) - Florida, USA - JUN 10, 2015
Sampled at the brewery and now drinking a growler I brought home, poured right into my brand new Hill Farmstead glass. Pours deep hazy yellow/golden, can’t see through it, with a big creamy white head on top. Aroma is lots of grass and hay mixed in with both tropical and citrus fruits. Aggressive in the bitter hop notes, and this shows in the flavor as well. But as it warms it takes on a pineapple flavor alongside hay, grass, mango, and lots and lots of citrus. Dry body, very drinkable, slightly creamy, and really nice. Another winner from these guys.

Pour moi, le mot «Bonheur» - avec un B majuscule, rime avec «Double Citra». Growler rapporté de l’endroit et dégusté le lendemain avec Ju-Lo et Dominique; cette bière sublimissime est le témoin du début de nos vacances estivales! Couleur jaune doré, teint éclatant - voire scintillant, tout de cette bière est spectaculaire pour l’ensemble des sens (sauf peut-être pour l’ouïe). La mousse - cette mousse blanche comme neige qui s’agrippe à mon verre n’en finit pas de dessiner des dentelles me remplit de bonheur et témoigne d’une bière onctueuse, affirmée et structurée comme peu d’impériale IPA peuvent se vanter de l’être! En regardant le tout, je ne me rends même pas compte que machinalement, j’approche mon grand nez de mon verre, comme hypnotisé. Le verre est encore à une distance d’un avant-bras de mon nez qu’une bague de jus de mangue me fouette en plein visage. Oh là là que c’est olfactif! Ça sent la mangue, la pêche, l’annana... Un nez totalement enivrant! En bouche, tout est absolument exquis. En plus d’avoir du corps, cette bière n’est pas qu’une explosion gratuite de houblons. On reconnaît la signature fermière et sauvage de la Maison qui manoeuvre étroitement entre les styles Saison et IPA. Pendant que Dominique reste sans voix, les yeux grands ouverts incapables de cligner, je savoure ce liquide complexe,, prodigieusement savoureux, explosif comme de la dynamite et délicat comme la soie. C,est long en bouche sans être trop amer. L’alcool n’est pas. Ça goûte l’arc-en-ciel Le Citra est magique. Hill Farmstead est magique! Une Grande parmi les Grandes IIPA !!!
