Was fortunate enough to have Susan back when it debuted in NYC at at the Blind Tiger last November, along with a handful of other HF rarities. The scene was absolute chaos, with the entire place packed floor-to-ceiling and people ordering as many as four 12-ounce pours at a time for themselves; I’ve never seen anything quite like it. I was fortunate enough to score a seat at the bar about 10 minutes before keg-tapping, and got my hands on one of the first pours of Susan ever in Manhattan. Glad I got it when I did, because the sixtel kicked in 30 minutes.
Bursting with all of the wonderful citrus flavor and aroma of many of my favorite IPAs, I quickly realized what Susan reminded me of more than anything else — Zombie Dust. Citra is the star of the Susan show, but it’s also a showcase for Riwaka and Simcoe. To date, Susan is one of the few beers I’ve had that has given Zombie Dust a true run for its money. Absolutely one of the finest IPAs I've ever drank.

Another shout out to Ineedabeerhere. Pours a dull orange hue with a hazy clarity and a frothy, textured, bright white head. Nose expresses tangerines, simcoe hops and a hint of grain. Taste follows nose - a little less bright than suggested by the nose with the addition of a light, slightly lingering medicinal bitterness at the finish. Mouthfeel is light-medium with a slight acidity and a carbonation that falls just short of crisp. Overall, very good, but closer to an APA than an IPA in my opinion.
