Amber in color with a tropical fruit nose. Smells super, wait for it...juicy. Taste follows the nose. Very fruity and tropical hops with flavors of mango and papaya mixed with clean crackery malt undertones and slight vinous wine barrel. Very floral as well. Juicy, tropical and floral overall. Medium body, tingly carb, smooth, mouthfeel that's lightly greasy with a surprisingly solid bitterness. This beer is still going strong.

Reviewed from notes:
Consumed 5/21/14 with my buddy an hour before his wedding. Thanks again jstillwell!

A: Hazy dark copper body topped with a creamy one finger head that persists for a long time. As per usual from HF, the beer is absolutely glowing.

S: Dear God... Can literally smell this across the room. Tons of fruit upfront including mango, pineapple, and zesty orange. Tart white wine and bretty funk take up the back end of the aroma. One of the best aromas I've ever encountered from a beer.

T: Tart citrus followed by acidic white wine grapes. Brett has clearly taken over at this stage, and gives off notes of musty tropical fruit. Grainy malt rounds everything out. Not as mind blowing as the nose, but extremely balanced.

M: Medium bodied and airy mouthfeel. Typical superb HF mouthfeel. What does Shaun Hill do to his water?!

O: An amazing beer that I only wish I could have tried fresh when the hops were still a factor. Hopefully I can now that's it's been rebrewed. An extremely appropriate beer to be sharing with friends before such an important event.

375 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Reviewed from notes.

Appearance - Hazy orange. A little hazy and murky looking. Nice white head. Gushed a little.

Smell - Citrusy. White wine. Bright and acidic. Hoppy orange with some lemony aromas.

Taste - Very bright orange citrus. Acidic white wine. Grainy malts. White wine lingers past the citrus flavors, but the hops come through to provide some bitterness in the back.

Mouthfeel - Crisp. Dare I say refreshing. Well carbonated.

Overall - Extremely impressive. This review is from the first time I had this beer, which was pretty fresh. I was surprised to find this review after years. It does lose its punch and unique hop flavors after a while, but it remains a good beer.
