Yellow gold and cloudy with thin white head. Citrus aroma with pine notes. Medium bodied beer with hops out weighing the malt and yeast. Very good for those that like hops over yeast and malt.

Whenever I go a while without HF, I forget how great it really is. Not much else can touch them. Just a different level of craftsmanship. The best aspect of this beer and all HF beers is the lack of filtration. Cloudy, thick goodness at all times. Honestly, this stuff is like hop juice, as all of their other APAs and IPAs have been. Dangerously easy to drink. Perfect balance and a wonderful showcase of how good the Citra hop really is. HF is #1 for damn good reasons.
