Growler. Pours a hazy yellow with a small white head that has decent retention and good lacing. Tropical fruits, lots of mango, pineapple. Taste is dry with a lot of pineapple and mango. Quite dry. Finish is very dry with not much bitterness. Might like a little bit more bitterness. Medium body. Medium-low carbonation. Quite good.

Pours light orange-ish yellow. It's quite hazy, completely clouded over. Medium-sized head. Nice and thick. Pure white. Lots of bubbles on the walls of the glass. The aroma is juicy and full of excellent hop flavor. There's pine, tangerine, grapefruit, peach, blackberry, lemon, grass. Nice dank aroma. As it warms, it gets increasingly juicy. Just a little bit of biscuity malt character. I probably wouldn't notice it without a taste, but the mineral flavor also comes through. It's a sorta chalky water note, hard to describe, but it seems to be common to the recent crop of excellent hoppy beers. The taste is juicy with the same dank hop flavor and a very pleasant mineral note. Very easy to drink. Enough sweetness to bring out the hop flavors, but the beer finishes dry. Moderately bitter. Lots of hop flavor in the taste. Smooth feel. Normal carbonation, though I guess that's to be expected as it's a growler fill. Very good IPA. Extremely easy to drink. Refreshing. Lots of flavor. Good bitterness level.

750 mL growler. Thanks Johnny.

Pours a cloudy dark golden apricot color with a dense creamy white head; head fades to a thin collar with soapy clumps of lace. Very aromatic nose; leafy, floral, pine, lemon and little undertone of biscuit malt. Flavor has an initial juicy citrus sweetness before the earthier, more bitter hops take over. Lemon, grapefruit rind and pine before finishing with a floral and grassy bitter punch. Finish lingers a little too bitter for my taste but not much of a problem. Lovely full body, well carbonated, oily and slick with a resiny, chewy aftertaste. Reminds me a little of HF Excursion 1.
