Huge expectations for this beer because New Zealand hops are my favorite at the moment. Super cloudy, bright golden yellow with a massive bleach white head that's soapy, sticky, and tall leaving behind great last and retention. The nose and flavor are all massive NZ hops. Sticky resin, bright tropical fruit, pungent earth and pine. Delicious hops cling to the palate and don't let go. Finish is incredible, although slightly chalky and cloying after a few glasses. Another incredible PA from HF.

Serving type: growler

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.
