Hazy golden yellow color with a soft white head that retains well. Nice lacing. Nose of oranges, grapefruit and some grain, almost cracker-like. Pleasant, but not particularly aromatic. Taste definitely gives a good presence of orange flesh and tropical fruit. Has a firm bitterness, but not astringent. Some grain comes through as well. It has an interesting blend of almost sweet fruit flavors and then moves into a bitter finish. Medium bodied, sits on the tongue nicely and then finishes nice and dry. I'm a little torn here; I like the beer, it's very well made (no astringency, no alcohol coming through), but even though my score feels honest, it doesn't fully paint the picture. I'll have to revisit this beer if I'm lucky enough to do so. I'm still very excited to try anything else (especially IPA's) made by Hill Farmstead; the quality of brewing is there.

This beer is phenomenal.
Poured on tap at Farmhouse in Burlington.
Pours a glowing bright deep yellow, hazy. One finger of foam.
Smells of grapefruit rind, hoppiness and sweetness.
Taste incredible. My palate erupts with juicy grapefruit citrus, but not too bitter.
Mouthfeel is chewy and perfect for the style.
This is a reference beer for a single hop citra DIPA. World Class.

Growler pour at the Ithaca Luminous release. Thanks, Bob!
Pours clear and golden orange, with about one inch of fizzy head.
Smells like citrus hops, with tons of floral notes as well.
Similar taste. The signature slightly catty Citra taste is there, but is a bit restrained, which is good. Light to medium bitterness, lots of grapefruit and orange.
Light to medium bodied, low carbonation, crisp mouthfeel.
Wish I could have more of this, this was a good way to start out the release.
