4.63/5 rDev +0.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75
Poured from a 750ml HF swing-top growler into HF over-sized wine glass. Growler filled at the brewery two days ago. I've had this beer multiple times from multiple batches but this is the first time writing a full review.
A- Pours a nice glowing yellowish orange with some light translucency and a light haze. About a finger's worth of white foamy head forms that has decent retention leaving spotty lacing as it recedes. Nice consistent carbonation.
S- Oranges, orange peels, grapefruit, balanced malts, a little bit of booze. Nice balance but booze comes through a bit and slightly too zesty, but other then that perfect.
T- Nice juicy oranges, hint of grapefruit, some orange peel, restrained bitterness, very little booze presence, nice lingering orange juice presence on the finish. Awesome balance, nice juiciness, hardly any alcohol presence for the abv.
M- Medium bodied, juicy, extremely drinkable especially when considering abv, nice carbonation level, exactly how I like my IPAs.
O- This is one of my favorite HF IPAs, and easily one of the best IPAs out there. The drinkability and juiciness of this is incredible considering the abv on it, my only complaint is that I wish it was made more often. If you're a hop-head this is definitely one worth seeking out.

Reviewed from notes. Growler shared by Andrew - thanks.
A: Pours a clear straw yellow under a quarter-inch thick white head which fades to a thin cap and rim yielding some spots of lace.
N: Straight up - crushed pineapple.
T: Plenty of juicy tropical fruits. Nearly perfect balance.
M: Moderate body and medium carbonation. Dry, fruity finish.
O: Really, really nice. The ABV is so hidden, but it creeps in. I'm a believer.
