Growler to hfs sniffer

A: golden in color it is semi transparent but not necessarily cloudy it had a big fluffy white head that goes away quickly and leaves an average lacing around the edge of the glass.

S:lots and lots of hops upfront and there are different smells too. It is mainly resinous piney hops (mosaic) but there are also notes of citrus as well. Hop bomb and I love It

T: follows the nose with lots of resinous hops upfront that stick to your tongue throughout the finish. Though there is definitely some citrus flavors in the form of mango and grapefruit as it is almost bitter and a little tart at the same time though it is quite bitter in the finish.

M: the resin extends to the feel as you can feel the stickiness for like 30 seconds after one sip. It is oily, crisp and fairly thick for a dipa but it goes down easy and the alcohol is completely hidden. It's a little sticky for my taste

O: really high quality dipa lives up to other S&S I've tried other hfs beers. It is hop bomb with lots of great unique hop flavors. Get this beer if you can.
