On tap at both Pro Pig and Blackback in Waterbury, VT. Had three times over one night because I loved it so much. Super hazy golden color with a fluffy head that leaves moderate lacing.

Smell is a punch to the nostrils of Nelson hops, very tropical, juicy, dank, slightly earthy. Very limited malts on the flavor lend some fresh dough and sweetness to the start. The rest of the beer is pure hop juice. Big citrus, pineapple, resin, grass, earth, dusty grape notes. Lingering oily finish, feels like a solid beer despite the low ABV.

Another killer from the Greensboro guys, cheers!

Wish I had gotten the 2.0 liter - pours a hazy lemon orange with a white head, terrific citrusy aroma and taste and, as with most HF beers, it has a nice medium body for a relatively light beer. Very smooth and drinkable - the growler didn't stand a chance.

Yup, this was legit. Classic HF bright and clean with tons of grassy, guava like Nelson.
