4.5/5  rDev +5.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

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.

Wow... This hides its 8.3% ABV like its nothing. Super clean and light bodied with hint of tropical fruit. Citrus, papaya, and pineapple. A "light" well balanced Double IPA.

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!

Can poured into pint glass. I expected a hazy golden color and instead was surprised by an rather clear golden color. Smells of lemon, grapefruit and hops. The first sip bites like a DIPA with pungent hops and citrus but mellows quickly; lays nicely on the palate. Well done!!

Enjoyed at a bottle share. Really nice pungent hop aromas fill the nose, the taste is also deliciously on the hop side of the spectrum without being too overbearing. Well done IPA.

Pours a nice golden orange with a bubbly white head. It is cloudy, but has nowhere near the haze of other HH offerings. The nose is fruity; orange and pineapple come to the front, but doesn't have a lot of punch. The taste is tropical fruits and citrus. Grapefruit, oranges, and pineapple are the main players, and the citrus hangs on the palate after each sip. The mouthfeel is soft and creamy with good carbonation. Overall, this is another winner from HH, with loads of citrus and tropical fruits, a great mouthfeel and something you can drink far too many of in one sitting.

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.

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

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.

Surprisingly clear for Hoof Hearted, but still a little cloudy. Yellow, with a thin white head receding to a ring, spotty surface and a little lacing.

Citrusy hop aromas with a savory element in addition to the dankness, like oats with butter. There's a touch of onion as well.

Taste is lemony, tangy, tart even, with a slight sting on the tongue bringing it back into IPA land.

Semi-dry, thin and fizzy yet a little frothy.

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.
