Served from a growler into HF tulip

A: Poured a murky bright yellow with orange highlights. 1.5 fingers of a bright white head

S: Wow. This is where this beer shines. HUGE tropical and stone fruit notes: sweet peach, papaya, pineapple, coupled with nice citrus elements - lemon peel, orange, and grapefruit.

T: Ton of that tropical fruit in the front of the mouth. Lemon peel emerges a little bit towards the middle of the tongue. Finishes quite dry and bitter

MF: Spot on. Medium body with carbonation on the lower end. Works perfectly.

O: Super drinkable, refreshing, at at 8%, the alcohol is not present at all.

I could drink this consistently. Paired great with spicy food. HF does not disappoint once again. Was worth the 2 hour wait in the cold. Cheers!

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.

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).
