My first Hill Farmstead IPA experience. Will it live up to the hype?

It pours a deep golden color with a nice white head with small bubbles. Laces the glass nicely as it goes down. Slightly hazy pour. First smell is pungent grapefruit. Some mango and maybe pineapple? Strong smell. First sip is an explosion of hops. Mango, grapefruit, piney, resinous, a little dank, and a very soft malt backbone. It's medium bodied with a low bitterness and a wonderfully soft mouthfeel. Impressive.

It lives up to the hype. Period.

Unbelievably sweet and hoppy. Flavors are completely balanced and crazy delicious.

Poured from a 750mL bomber into a Hill Farmstead stemmed glass, purchased at the brewery a few days ago, enjoy by 12Feb15! Tasted at the brewery but psyched to rate.

Pours a deep orange, hazy body with a 2 finger white head that reduces slowly, leaving lots of lacing.

Aromas a sharp and inviting, super tropical and piney at the same time, lots of citrus, pineapple, pungent grapefruit.

On the tongue is tons of citrus, grapefruit, mango, with an aftertaste of resin and citrus rind, slight hop bite on the finish. very nice. Easy on the tongue with a medium body and drinkable mouthfeel.

Overall it was everything I expected - super tasty, highly aromatic, and very drinkable. Up there with the best.

This DIPA has as it all going on: luscious appearance, complex nose, big flavors that remain enjoyable over a session coupled with a light and effervescent mouthfeel. The restrained brewing technique HF embodies lends itself well to their 'stronger' offerings, and Double Citra is no exception.
