On tap at Three's Brewery in Brooklyn

Pours copper, hazy, short white head

Very piney but maintains its lightness. Intense citrus taste and smell.

Really nice effervescence

This is another great HF offering.

On tap, pours a fairly hazy orange with a finger of dense foam that leaves thick rings of lacing down the glass. I could smell this beer the moment it arrived. Classic grapefruit, with some pine and lemon. Taste is similar, along with a little breadiness. Decently bitter finish. Feel is just a touch thin, but wonderfully smooth and creamy. Amazing IPA, one to seek out--though like other HF beers I've had, it is more restrained and sophisticated than punch you in the mouth.

Look: very hazy, fast fading head, plenty of lacing, light orange color
Smell: Citrus, resin, pine, malt
Taste: Citrus (orange/tangerine), tropical hops, pine, starts sweet, a little malt flavor, ends with an assertive, but pleasant bitterness.
Feel: Starts smooth, then finishes with a dry prickly carbonation
Overall: A really nice, well rounded beer. Lots of complexity in the smell and taste.
