On tap at Black Back Pub. Served into a stemmed HF glass.

A - Light orange/yellowish murky appearance. Looks like thicker pineapple juice. Beautiful lasting fluffy white head. Lacing is great. Usual story with HF beers.

S - Awesome mix of pineapple, mango, citrus and grapefruity hops. Big tropical notes.

T - Taste? Tastes like candy. There's a nice sweetness with great tropical flavors in there. Follows the nose.

M - Smooth and creamy. Perfectly carbonated. Credit to Hill Farmstead and to Black Back for serving it correctly.

O - Great, great beer.

750ml growler (Tree House Brewery swing-top) filled at HF this past weekend (a few days ago). Thanks a ton Don for sharing this with us after we barely missed it the last time we were up there.

A- Pours a very hazy non-translucent yellowish orange with a white head that quickly dissipates (most pictures I've seen has a nice fluffy head with great retention so perhaps even though this growler is still very fresh some carbonation loss might have occurred). This is probably one of the haziest beers I've seen, even though it is fairly light in color there is hardly any light that penetrates.

S- Very aromatic with nice strong tropical fruity aromas of oranges, grapefruit, and pineapple. Easily one of the best smelling DIPAs I've encountered.

T- Similar to smell with tropical presence of pineapple, oranges, and grapefruit. Very flavorful with a nice bouquet of tropical fruits.

M- Medium bodied, very easy drinking, finishes with a slight alcohol bite that lets you know it's there but isn't very noticeable, a little bit fuller bodied then your average IPA.

O- This was another fantastic HF beer that was extremely flavorful and is one of my new favorites from them. I wish they could make this year round along with Abner. Although maybe slightly overrated this beer definitely lives up to it's hype and is well worth checking out.

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!
