On tap @ Monk's Café in Philly

Look - Golden/orange color. Hazy. Fluffy pillowy head.
Smell - Grapefruit, citrus, pine
Taste - Grapefruit juice! Grapefruit pith/rind, lemony citrus, pine, pine needles, dank
Feel - Dry finish, sticky, slightly creamy

Overall - My first HF beer. Delicious but not my favorite DIPA. I've tasted better local beers (Kane/Carton). None-the-less world class.

L: Hazy color that has a lingering hop dust look
S: a traditional VT IPA that is not overpowering
T: Subtle but not weak, doesn't leave any doubt of taste
F: All HFS beers have a specific body to them unmatched
O: Def worth it if you can find it

I prefer s and s #4 but this is world class as well. Beer and brewery speak for themselves. Best

'approaching drain pour status' is what my notes say during a blind taste test - this growler may have not held up well. really bummed
