Growler shard by jc1762. Thanks Jon!

Yellow hazy body with a small white collar. Lovely aroma. New Zealand hops - yum. Fruity, juicy, amazing. Medium body with moderate bitterness. Perfect carbonation. Terrific.

750 mL growler. Bright orange body with a medium white head that leaves nice lacing. Smells of pine and grassy hops with some orange and fruity undertones. Cracker malt almost with a hint of wheat. Tastes of bitter orange up front. Immediately turns resiny. Tropical fruits come through behind it, especially as some of the grassy bitterness dies down. Lightly grainy malt backbone. Medium carbonation and very drinkable. Nonstandard hop profile, especially from Hill Farmstead. I can't remember the last resiny pale ale I had from them. But, as always, it's on point.

On tap at Blackback Pub in Waterbury, VT.

This one pours a hazy light orange, with a small head, and lots of lacing.

Smells like pineapple, pine trees, and a sort of interesting musty earthy aroma.

This isn't perfect, due to the kind of musty and earthy flavors on the finish (from the Equinox?), but the flavors from the Vic Secret up front- pineapple, grapefruit, and clean pine, are very nice.

This has nice clean finish- as all HF IPAs tend to do. It's got a good level of carbonation.

Not my absolutely favorite HF IPA- but that's probably because Equinox imparts weird flavors for me.
