Canned September 20, 2015. This is a sticky, dank beer. I get lots of orange and tangerine - the malt is fairly heavy, I would not call this a west coast style double. Hoofhearted is putting out some amazing stuff.

Pours a murky dark gold with a quick to retreat finger of off white lather that settles to a lasting cap and leaves creamy lace on the glass.

Weed, dark toffee, herbal bitter, bready sweet, other fruit mixed in to make this a wonderful med./full aroma delight.

Wooahh talk about taste not following aroma. This baby opens with the more bitter aspects forming a gentle partnership with melon, mango, citrus pith, peach, crackers and jam, and some nice pine to the rescue at end of sip. As it warms the fruit flavors really come into their own

Soft mouth and gentle carb. are the setting that is this gem's success. Clean flavor presentation, and a nice finish.

What a different and remarkable beer. Highly recommended.

L - "epitome of hedonistic pleasure"? We'll see about that. Initial pour is a cheerful orangey yellow. It almost glows. Huge head.

S - been catching whiffs of this ever since the can crack. Bright pepino melon. A deeply penetrating dark peach candy juiciness. Sticky dank lemonheads.

T - lots going on here. Tipping back and forth between juicy dank hops and oniony pine. Stringy pineapple, orange jam, and spicy tanginess. Sweaty, meaty, sticky onion resin. Simply dripping. Not much bitterness to speak of, just straight scallion juice. The flavors melt away on the finish, leaving naught but a faint numbness on the gums.

F - perfectly complements the oniony flavors. Smooth and stretched out. Gushing with creaminess.

O - quite good and very flavorful for its high ABV. Drinks like it's in the 8% range. Sinfully delicious flavors and sensations of juice, dank, and raw, earthy hops.

1/22/17 can, poured at about 50 degrees. This seems like the bastard child of New England & West Coast DIPAs. 10.2% & 98+ IBU are both essentially completely cloaked. Juice & hops both prominent, neither dominant.

I've had many hazy and juicy IPA's at this point and hold no prejudices. Definitely in support of the sub-style when done right. This beer is very soft and fragrant - looks like papaya juice in the glass, the normal descriptors. Such a disappointment though. Fusel alcohol flavors up the wazoo. Thin and astringent on the back of the palate, and what could have been a beautiful, round hop profile is completely undermined by booze and lack of balance. This is a hop bomb in the worst way, and is far from drinkable. Don't know what people are talking about when they say it drinks like 7%. I've had a couple of hoof hearted beers that were really delicious (dragon saddle was the most successful) but everything else has been disjointed and sloppy

Poured a hazy orange, with only a smattering of foam. It's got some staying power though. A blast of tropical fruit hides the fact that this thing is 10%. It's easy to down the whole deal before you realize whats happening.

Maybe I had a bad can. I get the pine and some of the tropical elements, but I got a big malty sweetness, especially on the nose and the finish. I'm basically with the other reviews except for the nose and the finish (yes, that's a lot of it). I'll probably try to get this one more time. On top of all the other reviews, I just find it... sweet in a unique way.

16 oz can poured into snifter canned on 6/12

A: hazy murky amber orange in color and a small creamy white head

S: oranges, apricots, light mangoes a little bit of a grainy oats smell

T: nice mango, apricots, a little cantaloupe and a little bit of alcohol beer is very juicy and fruity

M: light to medium feel a little bit dry on the finish

O: This beer is excellent its so fruity and juicy the only thing that I have bad to say about this beer is that it tastes a lot like hoof hearteds other IPAs which isn't a bad thing but blindfolded I don't think I could tell them a part.

This brewery has churned out some impressive beers during its short existence, and this one is no exception. I would put this beer up against the best Vermont has to offer; nothing in Ohio compares. It has officially replaced Bodhi as the #1 DIPA out of the state of Ohio in my humble opinion.

This pours a beautiful orange with a thick, fluffy white head. The nose is very powerful, with loads of tropical fruit, a touch of pine and the dankness you can smell from a few feet away. The taste starts with just the right touch of bread notes, which are quickly overpowered by the citrus notes - predominately grapefruit. The finish is very bitter, and it lingers. The mouthfeel is a touch too thick, but I suppose that is to be expected from a 10.2% DIPA. Speaking of that, the alcohol is very well hidden and will sneak up on you quickly. This is definitely something I grab a 4 pack of every time it is made available.
