Completely hazed golden with dense white head, strong lacing. Tropical nose mainly pineapple, other berries maybe. Taste is bitter, not much malt presence, grapefruit juice in an ale. Mouth coating resiny feel with below average body and carbonation.

Hazy orange pour with an inch of white fluffy head
Smells of mango, pineapple, peach, papaya, kiwi
Taste matches the nose with a slight grassy, metallic hint
Pillowy mouthfeel, awesome for the style reminds me of TH feel
Only dinged for the look, but otherwise outstanding -one of my favorite HF!

On tap at Malt & Mold. Poured a completely opaque golden orange with a nice foamy head to it. The nose is very fruity with citrus playing lead. The flavor follows the nose, definitely a juice bomb with the slightest amount of bitterness and malt. The feel is medium, decent carbonation, and a quick finish. This one has been on my list for a while and glad to finally be having it. A northeast IPA done to perfection.
