Slurp up the neon! One sniff and you'll be painted in animal print spandex and sporting a side pony tail and that's just the guys. Ready yourself for the taste of your fanny pack getting sucked into the tape deck. Bodaciously dry-hopped with the Dank n' Fruity combo of Mosiac, Simcoe, and Galaxy hops. Brewed under the watchful eye of AC Slater and Lisa Turtle, I mean John & Cindy from The Daily Growler.

L: thick pale yellow. Large cell foam dissipates with concave lacing holding tight to the sides of the glass.
T: grapefruit smells leap out of the can upon cracking it opened. Some pine clings to the end of a whiff
T: citrus (grapefruit), Pretty solid through the taste. A welcome monotone.
F: carbonation settles nicely
O: a notable triple DH that does the grapefruit thing extremely well. At 8% for double IPA it is worth considering downing a second …or third.

Description: Completely opaque appearance that looks like applesauce (without the chunks). Dirty tan, orange color. Aroma is overripe fruit and dankness. Taste is similar (mango, floral) with a noticeable grapefruit bitterness on the finish. Heavy body with a thick, fluffy feel and medium carbonation.

Overall: 4.25 (This beer is good and I may or may not drink it again) A good but not quite great beer, this is a solid representation of the style. I like grapefruit and bitterness, but the finish was still a little too much for me.

This hoofer is not up to the caliber of some of their others, but it has an understated charm to it.

It pours a nice yellow with medium bubbles and excellent lacing. The aroma and taste are not as out front as I could have taken right now. Definitely not as tangy as I had hoped for, but how can you not praise this excellent easy drinking cloudy IPA. It goes down easy.

Recommended, but I do like ANYTHING I can get from this brewer and I hope to visit one of their pubs again soon. A bit pricey for what you are getting - not up to their other products.

I got a can of this beer off the single shelf from my local beer store located just around the corner. It poured a smoothie thick orangish with white head that is leaving a spotty lace. The scent had strong citrus and orange creme notes. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink with rice fruit start and bitter citrus finish. The mouthfeel was fuller in body and had good carbonation. Overall it is a solid beer.

Canned a month ago.

L -- Muted orange body with a moderate haze and three fingers of billowy white head produced with moderate pour. Great retention and lacing
S -- Mango, green onion, orange creamsicle, pale malt sweetness, wildflowers, new sneaker. Quite dank
T -- Yellow grapefruit, creamy malt, lemon zest, leafy earthiness
F -- Medium+ mouthfeel, medium carb. Smooth and soft, with a bit of rindy bitterness on the tail end
O -- Another solid offering from Hoof Hearted. Seems like this contract brewing is turning out well for them

Can dated 5/7/20 into pint glass. Pours a very hazy golden-amber with a solid, blocky, off-white head that leaves great lacing. Initial impression is a very smooth and well-balanced DIPA, with just the right notes of citrus, malts, pine resin, and caramel. If I had to advance one criticism, I'd say it was just a litle sweet for my tastes, but YMMV. Alcohol is incredibly well hidden. Mouthfeel is just a little thicker than medium, and super-smooth - there are simply no rough edges. Finish fades to a slight sweetness, with no residual bitterness. Excellent DIPA!
