This one pours a slightly hazy bright orange, with a small white head, and a good amount of lacing. It was poured on tap in Albany, NY at City Beer Hall.

This smells like crisper blueberry, pine, grapefruit, mango with some definite floral notes as well.

Pretty soon I'll try the whole series here. At this point I think I only need number two, number eight, and number nine. The taste is very similar to the aroma. I don't usually much like Mosaic hops, and this is obviously mostly Mosaic. It shows how good this brewery is that despite that fact, I still really love this beer. It's very crisp, with a movie juicy blueberry and mango feel, and a huge grassiness and floral character on the finish. It's the classic build- it starts quite juicy and then descends into pleasant bitterness.

This is lighter bodied, crisp and airy, with a good level of carbonation.

Anther day, another amazing beer from HF.

Great hazy golden color

Smells like a fruity mix of hops guava pineapple goodness

The taste has a huge pineapple juice feel to it.

So smooth, carbonation is perfect and like a cloud in your mouth.
