Pours a cloudy yellow. Sunshine or lemon yellow with an orange blush on it. A fat head of creamy white foam adorns this beer and it looks striking. It has a beautiful tempting nose. Succulent hops, their citrusy fruitiness and some spice. A bit of soft sweetness for malt. It's the fruit peel that comes forward first and then as it drinks, some tangier tropical flavors. Dry biscuit malt that's a touch earthy and a lovely and balanced hop bitter finishes this one with grace and poise. A floral that comes to to the nose subtly and translates into the drink almost unnoticed except for it's lightness , it's flower petal backnotes. Dry with a crisp middle this drinks heavenly. It has stature and a tallness in the glass. It 's the way that the flavors come together with the spice creeping up on you until it ends with a slight flourish. It's the way the malt is softly sweet but not too sweet and how the fruit character seems to soar. It's the balance in the drink and in the end and that the bitterness is complimentary not dominating.
This was tremendous. Thanks Roguer for sharing this on with me.

Beautiful beer: 1 finger Snow White head with good retention and tons of lacing; opaque, pulpy light orange and yellow brew.
Full, classic DIPA aromas. Light biscuit, slight tropical fruit, lots of citrus, a hint of pepper.
Delicious! Tons of juice: mango, lemon, creamy pale malts, biscuit, and slight pepper. Far more tropical fruit than citrus. Some citrus peel and pine resin on the backend.
Creamy, relaxed mouthfeel. Soft yet lively.
Another delicious hoppy beer from HF.
