Excellent beer from hill. Heavy citra hop taste. Great carbonation, slightly hazy. Liked about the same as double galaxy but not as much as Abner or S&S 5.

Pours an extremely hazy golden orange color. Cannot see through it at all. Very nice, fluffy white head. Aroma is very familiar. Mostly citrus fruits. Tangerines and oranges. Not overwhelming aroma, but solid nonetheless. Smells very similar to many other citra hopped beers. Taste is citrus as expected with a touch (a very slight touch) of dankness. Goes down easy as none of the flavors overwhelm. There is just enough to let you know it's a highly hopped beer without destroying your palette. I'm not getting any bitterness whatsoever. Mouthfeel is medium and soft. Pretty much perfect as always from Hill Farmstead. This is a very good beer, but I think it's just a tick below the other great HF IPA's and IIPA's that I've tried.
