Pour is a hazed golden yellow with a tight white head and thick lacing. Nose is big and delicious, light clean fresh grain, strong hop profile, citrus, light grassy, just a hint of resin to add depth. Taste follows the nose, grain is clean, a little bit more of a presence in the flavor. Loads of citrus with just a hint of resiny hop and a light but presence bitterness through the finish. Extremely drinkable, soft delicate body, moderate carb.

Serving type: growler

A- Poured from the 750ml growler to the large, snifter/tulip shaped HF glass. Large haziness to a golden body that has some apricot hue to it. Creamy white head to two fingers with good retention. Lacing starts with ample thick sheets with webs covering most of the glass below.

S- Citrus hops off the top with a large Columbus presence that brings some major dank notes into this aroma. Just a slight bit of stone fruit and tangerine fruity hops. Fairly clean beyond that with some HF house yeast and cracked grains.

T- Hop-centric without being overly pungent or destroying the palate. Citrus hops with orange zest, grapefruit, pine and lemon rind notes with a support of dank Columbus, tangerine, stone fruit and apricot hops. Very slight bit of yeast as well as pale grains.

MF- Light-medium bodied with a frothy and creamy texture. Carbonation is moderate even after being in the growler for several days. Finishes with a light, clean bitterness.

Citrusy hops followed up by some dank and stone fruit varietals. I seem to enjoy each sip more and more and as usual it is a quality brew made by HF.

750ml growler filled at the source.

Appearance - Very hazy and very pale orange pour into a pint glass. Big ol white head falls to a finger or so and remains as such. Great retention, lots of lace, very nice.

Smell - Lots of earth, grass and piny hop, with grapefruit and pineapple hangin' in there too. Some sugar cookie malts. Decent strength.

Taste - Taste comes through a little better, still a earthy+pine resin forward hop profile with danky tropical and citrus as well. Sugar cookie and biscuit malts coming through in the finish mostly.

Mouthfeel - Good body to it, carbonation a bit on the low side for an IPA but it's fine overall. Bitterness is high but balanced decently with a nice flavorful malt finish. Average drinkability.

Overall - I prefer Edward to this variation, but as usual for HF IPAs, not much room for complaints here. Great flavor all-around, would gladly have this any time.
