A masterpiece feature of the citra hop, now sold in cans. Was thrilled to bring a bunch of this back home with me. Soft feel, dank citra, clean finish, hard to believe at times that it was 8%.

Tasted from draft. Pours a cloudy yellow with nice white head. Phenomenal nose. Aroma is grapefruit, lemon, pineapple and a little orange. Taste is moderately bitter with a nice malt backbone. A little more bitterness on this then some of the other Hill Farmstead IPAs as well as not as creamy a mouthfeel as some. Flavors of citrus and tropical fruits with some pine and cracker malt notes. Definitely one of the best imperial IPAs I've had.

Look is full on hazy dirty peach color with nice white head.

Smell is citra hops all day.

Taste follows the nose.... citra hops in a big way.

Feel is so soft and smooth.

Overall a fine beer from a fine brewery. Glad I got the opportunity to try It!
