Cloudy light yellow, a shade darker than Everybody Wants Some.

Creamy but still dry, citrusy and hoppy.

Not drastically different than Everybody Wants Some, creamier, more rounded out and balanced with the oatmeal.

Pours a hazy yellow/orange. Nice smell of tangerine, mango and ? lemon. Taste is pineapple, grapefruit and juicy tropical fruit hoppy goodness. Great mouthfeel. Another Hood Hearted winner!

O man i'm glad i got such great friends who are able to send me some Fresh Juicy DIPA by Hoofhearted brewing. All i gotta say is this is such a juice bomb and the nose is just as awesome as the beer itself. Had it fresh and it was barely a week old. These guys are gonna be BIG !!!!cheers

More delicious hop juice from HH. While visually cloudy and a weaker nose, this DIPA packs in the floral, citrusy hops - with all the patented HH taste.

This is the 2nd Oatmeal IPA I have tasted - first Oatmeal Double IPA. The look is very cloudy. The mouth feel is robust & full bodied. Very pronounce citrus flavoring, bitter after taste. Very enjoyable.

1 PINT can
Served in a tulip glass

It typical Hoof Hearted fashion this beer pours like a hefe weizen or pineapple juice. It is very cloudy and topped with a couple inches of off white head that leaves some pretty good lacing.

I get a healthy dose of citrus and tropical fruit in the aroma. There is also a little dank smell.

It starts out with citrus and finishes with pine.

Medium mouthfeel

This is the first Hoof Hearted beer that I had ever tried a couple years ago. It is good to have it in the can. It is not quite as remarkable as I recall, but I am a grumpy old man now.

Canned 1/10; consumed 1/10 and again 1/11.
L: Pours a very murky orange with a slight tint of yellow-brown. No particles or anything, just murky. Definitely characteristic of what many are calling the "NE IPA."

S: Typical tropical notes of the style, leans more on pineapple than orange, but certainly elements of both. Little to no piney, resiny smell; fruit dominates.

T: Follows the taste. A very slight bitterness at the end that dissipates quickly. Overall, incredible taste!

F: Feels nice.

O: A great DIPA of the sub-style. Would have preferred more brightness than the dull look it has, but if that's the only downside, I'm fine with that.

Fresh can from the release on 1/10/16. Cloudy would be an understatement - this looks like orange juice/pineapple juice. Smells like pineapple. Very thick mouthfeel from the oats and lack of filtration. Another awesome offering from hoof hearted.

look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

First tried the morning canning off the line before the can even had a top
very cloudy and yellow/orange looks like orange juice ( and almost tastes such)
aroma is juicy hops
Taste is lots of juiciness from the hops but not much bitterness from the hops until way on the back end. its almost mild at least for this type of very strong juicy IPA. this is probably due to the Oatmeal added which is nearly non-existent in the taste.
overall- amazing beer, a bit different but i put this and Konky on a level with second fiddle and mastermind. really glad I got a case. if you have a chance to get this DO IT!

Really nice aroma coming off of this with notes of orange, grapefruit, lemon, lime and some dankness. The oats used in this beer give it a creamy mouthfeel and make it super drinkable. Canned a day ago at the release. Really nice DIPA.
