Can snagged from Gator Beverage. Pours very clear golden with a nice white fluffy head. Dank and grass aroma, pine, some floral notes unique aroma and this is a new hop to me. Flavor is earthy and a bit muddled with an awfully dirty unpleasant finish like a cheap wheat ale. I get the dirty finish from all of those in this series but this takes it to a new level. Some light sweetness and mostly like biting into a pile of dirt and dead grass. Resinous and medium carbonation with a slick mouthfeel. Really not feeling this one.

12 oz. can poured into a snifter. December 20th, 2013. This is old.

Appearance - Orange body. Huge white head. Great lacing and retention.

Smell - Piney hop. Musty. Toasty malt. Getting weird.

Taste - A little tropical. Sweet and citrusy. Pine and grassy hop bitterness and some toasty malts.

Mouthfeel - Bitter. Medium bodied and well carbonated.

Overall - Probably way too old. But I didnt like the hop profile.

12oz can poured into tulip.
It must be noted that this can is 3 months old - beyond it's prime.

A: Pours marmalade-orange with 2 fingers of off white head. Clear, but for the many clumps of hop resin floating around.

S: Pretty weak overall. Some citrus, banana, and pineapple. A touch floral and stale.

T: Pine resin up front, followed by a floral taste and moderate bitterness.

M: Seems a little heavier than the other HotHS, but it could be just me. Pretty smooth.

O: Can't really say this is a bad IPA, but there are much better options. As far as the HotHS series goes, I'd stick with the 'Citra' as it is in a league of it's own.

Reviewed from notes. Poured from 12 oz. can into a Russian River pint glass.

A: Mildly hazy gold color, with a thin white head that fades quickly. Medium visible carbonation.

S: Light hoppy aroma (grassy and melons), a light cracker malt - but not much aroma here at all.

T: Bitterest of citrus pith, grapefruit, and bitter resin. This seems to be one of those bitter bombs without much accompanying flavor. Minimal cracker malt character.

M: Light body, good carbonation sensation, and the alcohol is well-hidden.

O: I really didn't enjoy this one much. Strangely low aroma and flavor, just letting flavorless bitterness come through. Nothing horrendous but I don't think I'd seek it out. Worse than the Simcoe version by a significant margin.

Clear golden hue with bright white craggy head. Lots of citrus fruits on the nose, lemon zest and tangerine. Very oragney. On the lighter side of being medium bodied with brisk carbonation. Sweet citrus fruits through with sweet bready undertones. Bitterness is pretty high. A littler hebal and earthy on the back end. Lots of citric rind bitterness. Sweet breads combined with hearty herbal bitterness and bitter sweet citric marmalade. Pretty good.
