Buddy of mine had to go on stomach medication after trading for a fresh growler of this, so I inherited most of this growler. Here's a toast to your speedy recovery :)
Beautiful pour: orange body overflows with luscious white head and sticky lace. Fresh, juicy hops tickle my nose as I enjoy the aroma. Grapefruit and other fruits jump out too.
Action-packed flavor profile starts off with aggressive hops which later fade in favor of tropical fruits. Taste remains bold and flavorful without the overly-bitter hop resin character which often characterizes the style. Among the best of its style.
Single IPA is among my least favorite styles. There are only a handful of them I enjoy -- and even fewer that I'd actually purchase for myself. Hopfather falls into the latter.
Serving type: growler
