4.43/5 rDev -3.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5
Beautiful golden pour, with a thin head (< 1/2 finger), solid retention, and nice fuzzy lacing. Beer is cloudy and opaque.
Aroma is of the most strong and consistent "cat pee" odors I have ever gotten from a DIPA. Beyond that, dry hops, citrus, and wheat come through.
The beer is wonderfully sweet and hoppy, and very well balanced - the only malt I get is of grain and wheat. I don't get much in the way of particular citrus or tropical fruit; just an overall sweet hoppiness.
HF avoids the syrup DIPA trap: this beer has a fantastic mouthfeel. It's sweet, hoppy, and balanced, and very drinkable.
This won't go down as my favorite DIPA, but that's really more a factor of the hops chosen rather than the craftsmanship; it's really an exceptional brew.
Serving type: growler
