[A] Hazy creamsicle orange with finger high of white loosely compacted head. Retention is well above average. Lacing is fantastic.

[S] The blend of hops covers the gamut. From the light tropical notes, to the blend of sweet orange and bitter grapefruit, all the way to the melon qualities reminding me of both cantaloupe and honeydew. Some spicy/stinky hop character adds balance to the fruit suggestions. A little caramel comes through as well.

[T] Fresh hop flavor first and foremost - same characteristics as above. Integration is a bit lacking. The balance between hops, malts and mouthfeel aren't working for me though as the hops completely dominate the malt (I know, it's an IPA), but more importantly, the mouthfeel almost completely dominates the flavor.

[M] Sharp carbonation that bites the tongue fiercely on all sides. The assault finally fades giving the flavor a chance to poke through before the bone dry finish.

[O] If the flavor and mouthfeel portions of my review seems harsh, let me put it in perspective: I would order this beer 9 times out of 10 on most taplists. It's a great beer, in my opinion, it just falls short of the phenomenally high bar Mr. Hill has set for himself.

A - Cloudy yellow, white head has some retention and lace.

S/T - Can't help but compare this to Edward since its described as a hopped up version of Edward. While I remember Edward being heavy on the pine resin hop side of things, Harlan is brightened up considerably with notes of lemon and tangerine. Still finishes with pine resin and is bitter. Some grassy, hay yeast mid palate.

M - Medium/light body, lively carb, crisp finish, slightly abrasive hops.

O - Another solid HF beer. Easy drinking, yet it maintains depth of hop flavor and moderate bitterness while not being palate-wrecking.
