Had on tap at Whetstone Station, Brattleboro

L -- Hazy pale orange body with two fingers of solid white head. Good retention and lacing
S -- Mostly orange creamsicle. Pretty mild with a little leafy woodsiness and new sneaker in the background
T -- Woodsy, herbaceous, piney, and grassy from the Columbus. Only the slightest hint of citrus pith despite the style. What's really interesting though is the fact that almost all of the bitterness dissipates almost immediately. Nice, crackery-crisp finish
F -- Crisp and dry. Medium mouthfeel, medium carb. Very clean
O -- I have to say I appreciate how often HF features oft-overlooked hops in lieu of yet another mosaic or Galaxy bomb, while at the same time still creating a distinctly New England styled IPA.

Pours a very hazy, golden to light tangerine with a nice, fluffy white head. Beautiful looking beer.

Aroma is a little underwhelming. Amazingly, I smell hints of tropical fruits, yet it was dry hopped exclusively with Columbus, which is usually not tropical. At least, not in my experience.

Taste is where this beer shines. Tropical fruits with pine and a touch of spice. Just so drinkable and at only 6% ABV, you could have a few of these. Mouthfeel is amazingly medium plus with a perfect amount of bitterness.

I've had many of HF's highly hyped IPA's and IIPA's and, for my money, Harlan is as good, if not better, than many of those. Perhaps it's because my expectations weren't high. Not sure. What I do know is that I love this beer!
