Juicy is inspired by our love for New Zealand—the adventures had therein, and the journeys grown from without. Our love for the landscape, the agriculture, and the spirited reflection of its inhabitants a decade ago has led to the vision of what lies before you. After more than a year conditioning in wine barrels with our resident microflora, the beer that we have referred to as Juicy is now ready to be enjoyed.

L -- Surprisingly amber-brown body with two fingers of white head produced with moderate pour. Some retention and good lacing.
S -- Definitely dry hopped! Some nice tropical notes along with a somewhat unpleasant medicinal note, almost like Pepto bismol. Also getting oak, mixed berry, and subtle barnyard funk. I like it more as it warms
T -- The name is pretty spot on here: this is surprisingly candy-like. Not overly tart, but there is some distinct lemon peel character. Great balance between hoppy and funky.
F -- Crisp, effervescent, eminently drinkable
O -- Definitely my favorite of the dry-hopped HF saisons

Bottled on February 14, 2020. Pours a vibrant golden color with a finger of medium density white head that receded to a thin ring. Aroma is excellent. A combination of wine barrels, orange, lemon and miscellaneous tropical fruits burst from the glass. Maybe a little bit of tart funk, but it definitely takes a back seat.

On the tongue, the funk is much more present. The taste leads with wine barrel / oak funk. Mid palate I get some tropical notes, along with wildflowers. I don't believe any dandelions are in this beer, but to me it tastes like they are. On the very long finish, the funk has more of an earthy feel. Surprisingly full body. Well carbonated and smooth, despite a bit of acidity.

Overall, this is an excellent beer. Complex and layered in a way I don't often see. The barrels really add to the experience. An excellent example of what happens when skill and patience combine.
