Certainly a top notch IPA. Simcoe brings loads of floral and grassy hops that also express orange, grapefruit, and lemon peel. The body is creamy and smooth. Balanced flavors with the bitterness and the juicy citrus.

Finally had it at HF on a day I was there. Growler purchased 4/9/16, consumed 4/13/16. Poured into Lawson's tulip glass.

L: Hazy pale gold with 2F head with good retention and lacing.
S: A lot of tropical fruit from the Citra hops, pine and citrus from the Simcoe. Very nice.
T: Definitely leads with grapefruit, lemon, citrus from the Simcoe. Some pineapple/mango in back with the barley/oat malt profile. Crisp and zesty, but not overly bitter.
F: Light to medium bodied, light to medium carbonation. Pretty sessionable despite moderate ABV. Well-constructed I always say it's that good well water in Greensboro Bend.
O: Definitely a solid bridge between a session pale ale and a world-class IPA. Would drink anytime. I'll add in a useless plea that this should be canned.

Poured from a 750 ml growler from HF on 3/30/2016. First time drinking Legitimacy.

Hazy yellow, clear white head, tons of lacing.

NIce hop bitterness, but also quite juicy. Extremely drinkable. Nice, not overblown carbonation. Good aroma and mouthfeel. Personally, I think it blows Edward away.

Gave my 78 yr. old mother a sip and she enjoyed it too. There's a recommendation!!!!

Solid American IPA, refreshing, piney, hoppy and juicy, would be an excellent summer beer. Yet another fine offering from HF.
