Poured into speiglue glass from 2L growler filled 10/17. This is a beyond excellent flagship IPA from HF and one of the better beers I've had from that brewery.

On tap at BBD's in Rocky Point, NY; pours hazy yellow gold color with a big foamy 2 finger snow white head that stuck around forever and left incredible lacing and a foamy iceberg floating on top that swirled around after each sip.

Smell and flavor are both top notch, pretty close to perfect with fresh citrus fruit/citrus hops, grapefruit and lemon zest, grassy notes, piney hops and a malty, graham cracker background to make it balanced and masterfully constructed. Real mild bitterness, it was a pleasure to take down each sip, which was simple and yet complex all at once.

Incredibly easy to drink, an outstanding IPA as it was so tasty and refreshing at the same time that it seemed like a session IPA. Seek this out, it's that damn good.

4/15/2016-Had this again on tap at the Lark in East Northport, NY, and it was fantastic. Very fresh and hoppy smelling, but not over the top; extremely tasty with the perfect amount of bitterness and a ton of hoppy citris notes to completely hide the ABV and flow down effortlessly. Even better the 2nd time around.

On tap at some joint in Waterbury.

Hazy orange color with a 1f white head. Some lacing. active rising carbonation.

Orange color leads to a citrus aroma of...oranges, as well as grapefruit and pine oil . Lots of citrus and some pale-ish malts.

Mostly malt forward flavor with citrus hop taste also. Piney.

Smooth feel with good carbonation. Hop tang, not too bitter.

Tasty and drinkable., quite refreshing as well. Not dank.
