4.18/5 rDev -5.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
Pours cloudy gold/orange with a couple fingers of white head. Tons of lacing as usual for a HF beer.
Very bright and hoppy aroma. Citrus hops (grapefruit, lemon) jump out with a little pine as well. Just a touch of caramel malt.
Tastes follows the aroma. Bright citrus fruits with a little cereal graininess to provide some backbone. Finishes a little drying while picking up some pine flavors. Nothing spectacular, but a very solid combo of hops and malt. Passed the bitterness taste with my IPA disliking companion, so definitely a great pale ale.
Medium to light bodied but with a wonderful creamy mouthfeel. Finishes somewhat dry with just a bit of resin on the back of the tongue.
A very solid pale ale. Pales in comparison to some of the other HF hoppy offerings, but still a pale ale, I'd be glad to order anytime.
Serving type: growler

4.55/5 rDev +2.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Poured into HF stemware
A-Frothy white head with some mild retention. Thick lacing that quickly runs down the side of glass. light golden hazy beer.
S-Aroma hits as soon as the growler was opened. Aroma is strong and is a precursor of things to come. Lots of sweet smelling hops. Tropical fruits. Peach, oranges, mango. some grapefruit and faint pine
T-not as sweet as the nose at least at first but may change as it warms. Peach, orange, grapefruit, lemon/lime, some bitterness. flavors really pop as there is something about the beer that makes the flavors very bright and upfront. some maltiness to keep the hops in check. Bit of a bitter finish with some lingering pine and bitterness
M-medium bodied beer with ample carbonation. leaves you with a mouthful of flavor
O-strong showing here easy to see why this breweries beers are in such high demand
