On tap. Pours a hazy, glowy orange color. Thin, off white head. Aroma is very tropical. Citra nose through and through. Nose isn't quite as intense as some other top-tier Imperial IPAs but the overall aroma is definitely attractive. The flavor of the hops is a mixture of several tropical fruits and some musty/stemmy hoppiness. Malt is semi-sweet, pale and bready. Citra hops are marvelous. Very drinkable. Not overly bitter. Flavor and aroma are great but a little less potent and pungent than I was expecting. I would still crush this if it was available to me. A long time want; just slightly below my lofty expectations.

Wow great looking and tasting beer. We had a couple of the Hills today and this was the winner. Beautiful glow in the glass and wonderful fruity notes of guava, tangerines, and a nice piney flavor on the back end. Get it!!
