So, the beer pours a rich looking, apricot amber color with pretty decent head retention and light lacing. On the nose, there's a huge aroma of mango, papaya, apricot and pineapple. The mosaic hop presence is pretty pronounced in this bad boy. The flavor profile replicates the nose pretty closely, but the tropical fruit flavor wasn't as intense as I was expecting. Mouthfeel was also a bit less full than I was expecting, though I appreciate the fairly light, dry and moderately bitter finish in this beer. The finish is very clean in this beer, and the alcohol is very well integrated into the flavor profile. So drinkability is pretty good. This is a very good DIPA for sure, though I don't think it quite matches up with the #7 version I tried last night. However, I think a bit more sweetness and richness on the palate would improve this DIPA immensely.

Still a very good beer from the folks at HF.

Look is a hazy orange color with a small off white head that is sort of thin and leaves quickly. Decent lacing.

Smells of orange, tropical fruits and mosaic hops.

Taste is a great mix of mosaic hops with orange and pineapple notes.

Superb feel on this one. Full-bodied and a nice dry finish.

Another excellent overall beer here.
