750ml swing top opened on 6.16.13

A - Pours a very hazy, cloudy light orange with a huge soapy light tan head with good retention.

S - Citrusy, tropical, and some melon.

T - Tropical fruit, floral, melon, orange, a touch of wheat.

D - Smooth light body with good carbonation.

O - #3, and another good one. It didn't blow me away, but HF may be spoiling me with all these amazing beers.

Growler courtesy of Luke. Thank you very much for the opportunity!

Yellow-orange pour into my Tired Hands teku with a big white bubbly dome. HF hops just look good in a glass.

Herbal minty citrus jumps from the growler. There's also a white cake batter underneath.

Juicy orange on the front of the tongue for the briefest of moments. Immediate segue into dry baby aspirin and big catty dankness. Remember when you'd blow bong hits through a toilet paper roll stuffed with fabric softener? Hey the potheads are doing laundry again. Well, this is like exhaling a gnarly sticky nug straight through Mr. Whiskers crap den. Prickly bitterness along the finish with an herbal feline fade.

Next time you decide to fire one up, call your kitty in on the session. My guess is you'll have a lot to talk about.
