750 mL growler poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Very hazy orange body. Light wisps on the surface. Clings a little bit.

Smell - Oh yeah. Buckets of hops. Excellent citrus hop smell but it still manages to have a grainy malt presence. Sweet hoppy nectar.

Taste - Juicy citrus hop. Orange and grapefruit flavors. Nice sweet flavor behind it. Very monotonic, but deliciously so. Grainy malt and the sweetness drops off.

Mouthfeel - Medium body. Medium carbonation. Clean and just a little heavy.

Overall - One hop makes it a bit one-note, but the flavor is excellent. Definitely a top IPA.

Serving type: growler

2 day old growler from the brewery

The beer pours a slightly hazy amber with a thin, whispy white head. The nose is subtle yet potent, slightly citrusy/lemony, and has a great sweetness. The taste is saturated with flavor - sticky, fruity hops, a touch of alcohol, and sweetness, all of which is incredibly well balanced. The mouthfeel is drinkable, medium bodied, hop forward...it's a beer you could drink endlessly. This is definitely worth getting a growler of, even if you're not impressed after trying the sample size (which I was not).

Big thanks to dujayhawk for hooking me up! Reviewed from notes. Poured from HF growler into Russian River pint glass.

A: Pours a hazy gold with peach highlights. Medium size white fluffy head over fairly low visisble carbonation - perhaps due to the serving type, though this was a very fresh fill.

S: Wow, hops. Grass, pine, citrus, tropical fruit, all atop just a bit of biscuit malt.

T: Follows the nose well. Melon/spice hops show up big on the tongue, along with the big tropical fruit, and citrus. There are flavors of dank, resiny, citrus, and some grass hops. Surprisingly, though, it seems only moderately bitter amidst the cavalcade of hops. Just a big of chewy malt noticeable just before the swallow.

M: The alcohol is well-hidden. A big, heavy, sticky body for an IPA with good carbonation sensation.

O: This is very tasty, and I'm glad to have had an opportunity to try it. It's a very well-put-together beer, but the hop profile isn't my favorite (or I may have scored it even higher). Very impressive nevertheless.
