Nice hay colored DIPA, lots of good hop aroma and tropical fruit aromas. Really well made beer, clean, balanced and tons of hops. HF makes classic hop beers so well

Poured an opaque yellow/orange color with a fingers worth of bubbly white head. The nose had a lot of citrus fruit with pine and spices. The flavor has a ton of citrus fruit with a splash of tropical fruit, earthiness, and finishes with the slightest bit of pine. The feel is medium, well carbonated, and slightly resinous. This beer is outstanding! Well worth all the praise it gets and I will definitely seek it out again.

Creamy yellow orange look. Smell is fresh citrus hops, taste is juicy and smooth like a cloud in your mouth, no alcohol taste at all. Very nice color, smell is perfect and taste is even better.

Tap pour into tulip. Smaller head with minimal retention and nice medium sticky lacing. Aroma is assertively citrus and dank tropical fruit. Flavor follows and is beautifully balanced with the nice malty background. Delightful fluffy mouthfeel and no hint of the alcohol. This beer is a winner
