Nose of sweet fruits (passion fruit, watermelon, orange) and this typical fresh scent that only HF has the secret.
In mouth, it's a brief fruits explosion. Brief, because a bitter and dry taste quickly invades the palate.
Bitterness is moderated and dry
I guess it would be better to enjoy that beer on a warm day in July rather than a cold and rainy October day.

Pour is a cloudy pale yellow with a fluffy pure white head. Nose is heavy tropical fruit of pineapple and grapefruit with a nice balance of grain and bread crust. Taste is very balanced, strong clean grain, less hop forward than the nose. Carbonation is strong and the body is light with a powerful bitterness on top of the grapefruit on the rear end of the palate.
