After having this several times on tap and in a few growlers, I think I've got enough experience under my belt for a review. Super-delicious brew. Notes were taken from a growler. Served in a Hill Farmstead long-stem tulip.

Pours a clear golden-orange color with a large white head and a moderate amount of lacing on the way down. Thin collar throughout. The nose brings a super-heavy hop presence with loads of tropical and citrus notes, as well as a few floral notes. The flavor is overpoweringly full of orange zest and other citrus skin with a bit of mango and other tropical fruits in the background. Taste sticks around for a long time and ends with a beautiful bitterness. Medium body and really nice carbonation. Bitter and dry. Delicious. Highly recommended. Wish I had more.

This poured out as a hazy golden color with a thin white head on top. The retention is thin and some bubbly lacing on the glass. The smell is good but not as great as I was hoping. The nose is slightly fruity citrus on the nose. The taste is big with hops, nice bitter lemon flavors. Some subtle malt in the finish. The mouthfeel is very drinkable, smooth and juicy. Overall this is really good but not as good as some of the HF IPA's.

Double Citra

Growler from bring. Thanks, Barry!

As with the other Hill Farmstead IPAs, Double Citra is rather cloudy, amber hued and topped by a lasting bubbly white head.

Pretty awesome aroma. Loads of tropical fruit, papaya and mango in particular, along with a bit of citrusy grapefruit. Little bit of subdued sweetness, a hint of alcohol. Really showcases the citra hop well.

Like the aroma, the palate has a lot of great fruity hop flavor. Peach, pineapple, grapefruit. The malt foundation is solid, but not necessarily sweet. Very slight buttery note that softens the palate a bit. Dry finish with huge biting bitterness that never feels astringent, the signature of HFS DIPAs. Easy to drink, excellent stuff.

Missed reviewing this for some reason, so here it is finally.

Awesome looking 2 finger head fluffy, fades slowly with lots of lacing hazy clementine orange color.

Nose citrus galore, dank musty resin, hint of tropical fruit, hint of malt, apricot tangerine and other stone fruit like.

Taste fresh musty resinous hops, lots of tropical citrus flavors, pineapple, passion fruit, papaya, tangerine, juicy! Light malt base. Finish is slightly bitter hops, lots of tropical fruit, dry slight resin,

Mouth is med bodied, decent carb.

Overall amazing!

First had: on tap at Teresa's, Wayne, PA

Hazy peach-orange color, with a finger or so of fluffy white head that receded a bit but never fully disintegrated. Nice aroma of citrus and tropical fruits, fresh, with hints of a bready malt base. Tastes like a good AIPA should, hop-dominant, fresh citrus zest, pine needles, tropical fruits, enough bready malt sweetness to give balance but to leave the hops clearly in charge. Medium body, crisp and drying, higher alcohol barely noticeable. Another great IPA selection from HF.
