4.01/5  rDev -7.6%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Rather light in the glass with a nice orangish-straw color. A bit hazy and capped by a sticky white head.

As expected, orange is the dominant note on the aroma but it's not quite as 'in-your-face' as I thought it would be. Instead it's a nice orange note alongside the more typical fruity hop notes and a bit of malt.

Juicy and a bit floral as well in the mouth. Not really a palate-wrecker of an IPA, instead just a nice well balanced beer with tasty orange highlights. Overall, a fine beer for a quiet evening but not quite as memorable as some other HF IPAs.

Serving type: growler

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

750 mL growler poured into a Teku snifter.

Appearance - Hazy orange. Nice surface foam that lasts a while. Nice lacing.

Smell - Lots of grapefruit hops. I'd guess columbus. Slightest bit of sweetness from the malt.

Taste - Follows the nose. Grapefruit. More bright citrus. Balanced very well by the malt. Barely sweet, but the malt is present. A bit of bitterness.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied. Medium low carbonation. Balanced IPA.

Overall - I seldom enjoy a balanced IPA, but this is great. Another hit from HF.

Serving type: growler

4.19/5  rDev -3.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Friendship & Reunion pours a hazy straw yellow with a moderate sized fizzy head on top. As the foam dissolves it leaves behind a nice netted pattern of lace on the glass.

The aroma has lots of orange and tangerine citrus with a little lemon mixed in. There's a little hint of bready malt in there too.

Each sip of this medium bodied beer is dry on the palate with light carbonation. The flavor is much like the aroma, lots of orange, tangerine and lemon citrus along with some tropical fruit. Some bready malt and a little sweetness helps balance out the hops. It finishes dry with lingering citrus notes.

This beer has lots of hops, but the flavor doesn't over power. The bitterness is light to moderate which makes this a fairly easy drinking beer.

Serving type: growler
