A little more bitter on the finish than I've come to expect from HF, and the billing was for strong citrus notes. This came out much more piney and resinous than anything else. All in all still a good IIPA, just a little off the mark of what I was expecting.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Clear golden orange. Decent white head. Good collar and nice retention.

Smell - Simcoe-y. Grapefruit and a little bit of that onion to it. Malty with a doughy sweetness.

Taste - Bright citrus and some pale malt sweetness. The grapefruit builds up to an almost pithy grapefruit flavor. Bitter lingering flavor.

Mouthfeel - Medium to medium heavy. Sweet and bitter. Medium low carbonation.

Overall - Missing the Society magic, I think.

Edit: Had a second growler and it had the Society magic. Rating altered due to magic.
