tasted from a 4-day-old growler in a hf stemmed glass.
A - hazy goldenroad with a huge head that makes an appearance at the end of the growler pour. excellent lacing on this one.
S - tropical aromas like pineapple and mango are what's happening here. they're backed up by citrus and maybe a little booze.
T - lots going on here, including slightly sweet malts, citrus, and dry piney hops. grapefruit predominates as you get near the finish, which is dry but not that bitter and leaves the slightest bit of sticky hops in the back of your mouth. ridiculously balanced with a hint of warming alcohol.
M - medium body. carbonation is lively and flawless for the style.
O - very smart and balanced double ipa with interesting fruity components in the aroma and taste. hf could probably make a thousand citrusy ipas and it would be hard not to love each and every one.

750ml growler poured into a tulip.
A- Golden orange pour with a nice haze. Two fingers of white foam. Moderate lacing on the glass after each sip.
S- Strong fruit and pine scents. Really picking up a grapefruit scent with other citrus fruits present. Moderate hops smell but not overwhelming.
T- Nice citrus taste. Grapefruit notes jump out right away, and linger in the aftertaste as well. Other tropical/citrus fruits coming through after the initial grapefruit upfront. A perfect amount of bitterness detected, definitely well balance and not too hoppy.
M- Dry, light to medium bodied mouthfeel. Nice citrusy/bitter aftertaste.
O- This is an excellent DIPA. Very smooth and easy drinking. Does not drink like 8% at all. Love the great balance of citrus, earthiness, and hops. Would love to be able to have this all the time. Drinks excellent in the FL summer heat.
