World-Class
Notes: The series of experimental Double IPAs continues. This one is hopped with ample amounts of Columbus and is reminiscent of… an Imperial Harlan?

This is a dank, piney, catty IPA! I expected all juice and tropical, but I guess I should’ve known better based on the labeled hops! Old school West Coast IPA monikers. This is the first time I’ve seen the acknowledgement of the trademark on Simcoe hops...seems odd. Cloudy, golden, fair head retention. Smell is fairly modest: sweet and hoppy, with a faint allium whiff from the Simcoe. Mouthfeel is prickly and Bitter with a capital ‘B’. A good one, but not your typical tropical juice bomb of a NEIPA. Thanks warnerry!

Hazy golden look. Aroma is floral and fruity. Taste is fruity but rounded, hoppy but not too bitter. Light body, easy drinking, very well balanced. It has the nice HF character.

Very hazy yellow color, small white head. Smell is orange and peach. Taste is orange, starts sweet and ends with a nice firm bitterness. Light carbonation, somewhat thin mouthfeel for style. Overall: a very refreshing, easy drinking beer, but one that lacks complexity.

Poured from the 750 growler into HF stemware.
Pours a very hazy and glowing vibrant blonde with ample thick head.
Aromas are lots of citrus and lemon rind, dank hops, HF distinctive yeast.
Flavors right in line with aroma. Soft, almost no bitterness, lemony hoppy.
Mouthfeel was fantastic.
Overall, an incredible hoppy beer.
