Notes: 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.

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!

Super hazy with a nice thick off white head. Nice lacing. Lots of citrus and tropical fruits. Smooth and delicious. Crushable at 8%. This one satisfies. Recommended.

Pours an opaque pale orange with a twinge of white. Head is nearly two fingers of white foam that retains well. Aroma is papaya, tangerine, grapefruit, guava, lemon zest, orange peel and lightly bready yeast. Flavor profile is grapefruit, tangerine, papaya, mango, lemon zest and orange peel in a strong tropical fruit whirlwind. Heavy tropical fruits bring along a notable sweetness. Mouth feel is medium in thickness with a lightly prickly carbonation on the front that prevents it from being soft - just a touch more than soft requires. Overall, big tropical fruits, which are well established and balanced, but that's the one trick here.

Served in a 15.5oz Speigalau tulip from a 16oz can.

Still love the name of this brewery as it always makes me laugh but the liquid inside of this can had me going too as it was quite juicy and full-flavored. This was dank and cloudy enough to make me think that was a New England IPA as this was among the better American Imperial IPA's that I've had in recent months!

Of course, the pour to this was cloudy as the murky goldenrod hue let in enough light in around the edge. Tons of fluffy head topped this off and out of all the 2,100+ beers that I've rated on here, *none* may have covered the inside of my pint glass as much as this as the beautifully thick and soapy rings wonderfully bled down to the next, with a minimal amount of uncovered space between them. Loads of tangy citrus, tropical fruits, vanilla cream, and soft hops on the nose as the taste contained all of these in wonderful proportion. Dank grass, weed, and pineapple came in once I took a few sips as this felt wonderful on the palate without being too hopped, overwhelming, or unbalanced. Hints of lime came in on the aftertaste as the brightness and twang of it stuck on my teeth, with this beer having a clean finish and light amount of carbonation.

The amount of booze was spot-on since it was certainly present but not noticeable and not enough to infringe on the wonderful array of flavors here. Equally sweet and dank, I'd easily reach for this again and loved every sip of this. Give it a go - you probably will too!

Roller Blabe pours a semi-opaque golden yellow with a finger and a half of thick, rich head, which leaves spiderweb like lacing. The smell is a faint pine dankness with notes of tropical fruit including pineapple and papaya, a hint of floral and a sweet malt characteristic. The taste is strong and bitter hops, but quickly fades to a sweet citrus fruit and caramel malt that finishes clean.

subtle dank aromas that barely came through in the flavor which was a little disappointing. Otherwise it was really good. Very pale haze. Overall I expected a little more given Hoof Hearted's reputation.

Hazy, pale orange color with a half finger head and spotty lacing. Smells slightly dank with papaya and pineapple aromas. Taste mimics the aromas with some white grapes. Light fruit sweetness with subtle hops. Medium body with a little fizz on the tongue with some spice on the finish.
