375ml growler courtesy of JeepCop. Poured into a snifter.

4.0 A: Opaque brownish yellow color. Two and a half fingers of white, pillowy/creamy head. Retention is good and a decent amount of lacing is left.

4.0 S: This has a raw, fresh hop vibe in the nose. It smells like I've shoving my face in some hops right before throwing them into the boil. Primarily floral with earthy and grassy secondary. Yeasty with bready malts. Very nice.

4.0 T: Tastes like it smells. Raw, resiny hops that focus on floral, earthy, and grassy flavors. Moderate yeasty breadiness. Very light sugariness. Light bitterness. I'd prefer this to be a bit cleaner and less yeasty, but it's still pretty good.

3.5 M: Heavier medium to heavy body. Good carbonation, especially from a growler. Reasonably creamy. The thing that I'm not a fan of is that this is a bit too chewy for my liking.

4.0 D: Another more than solid beer from HF. This has a lot of the things that I don't like in a DIPA (big yeasty breadiness, chewy mouthfeel) and still manages to get a good score out of me.

Enjoyed on tap at the Black Back pub. Cloudy grapefruit coloured body. Apparently with rice and Brett. A good mouthfeel. Lots of orange citrusy taste. Some tropcal fruit.Very smooth drinker. Complex and good drinkability. I would like to try it again.
