Notes: And he's got me vuelto loco, amigos. Everybody Wants Some, a rotating single-hop DIPA, is the only acceptable response to the call of DLR-era Van Halen + 80's cult classic movies. A giant teddy bear, bigger than you. Sounds great. No, it really does sound good. But look Beth, I gotta go. The Christmas tree is on fire.

Light cloudy pineapple color with a 4F head in a Spielgelau IPA glass.
Fragrant, pineapple, malty, sweet, stone fruit. Light hoppy finish. My favorite from Hoof Hearted. Single hop: Amarillo.

Poured into a Pint Defiance tulip. The body is a cloudy yellow tinged orange with a finger white head. Aromas consist of tropical fruit, such as papaya and pineapple. There's also orange, resin, and honeydew. The flavor is the same, with almost no bitterness. The feel is medium bodied with medium carbonation.

16oz can dated 5/8/19. Mosaic hops.

Pours cloudy gold with an inch of white fluff. Decent retention and lacing. Cracked garlic with green onions in the nose backed up with candied mandarins. Medium bodied with a creamy, tacky mouthfeel. Ripe, juicy, tropical fruit on the palate with zero malt and minimal bitterness. Peach, orange, pineapple, and grapefruit. Finishes with plenty of juicy, dank, hoppy goodness.

can to tulip glass.

LOOK: mostly yellow color with a hint of orange. 80% hazy, thick juicy look, Big white head. very good retention.
AROMA: light grapefruit and pineapple, grass.
TASTE: grapefruit, ash, hay, grass, lemon sneaks in a bit. Later in the beer it tastes more like lime.
FEEL: Medium to full body; Thick, but easy to drink.

Very Good DIPA. Sweet and hoppy. Very good peripherals. The name and can art are also a bonus: Better off Dead was one of my favorite 80's movies.

16 oz can , no date, poured into a tulip glass , a murky hazy gold with a half finger white head that hangs out for a bit. The aroma is magnificent, a hoppy dank grapefruit onion/sea salt citrus compository. Spell check doesn’t like my made up word. The taste is much of that with some herbal/stone fruit gradients entering the mix. The feel is medium, with a slightly below medium amount of carbonation. Bitterness is slightly drying. Overall, an enjoyable double.

Double IPA poured from a can into a Goose Island tulip (I like the label - it makes me think of the movie "Better Off Dead"). The pour is bright gold, slightly hazy, and sports a finger of rocky white foam with good retention. The nose is bright and fruity with citrus notes and a little sweetness. Main aromas are lemon, orange, pineapple, and a faint whiff of vanilla.

Medium-light body with a firm feel and a very pleasant hoppy flavor. Up front there is a cracker-like graininess with some lemon, then the hops creep in and flavors of orange and pineapple join. The hops seem to contribute far more fruitiness than bitterness as the malt backbone provides sweetness in a perfect balance. In addition, the sweetness even manages to prevail and linger a bit on the finish, keeping the hops in check even after swallowing.

This one showed up at my bottle shop last week and it was very sought after by the local beer nerds. I can see why. It is obviously a first-rate IIPA. My only gripe is that it was pretty expensive given the contents. The single can cost me $6. I don't think the value is there and I wouldn't buy it again at that price, but I would be interested in other offerings from this brewer.

Poured on draft at Other Half.

Pours a hazy, near opaque orange color with a finger of white head. The head leaves a nice ring of lacing as it settles into a thin film.

The aroma is dank as hell. There's also some pineapple, grapefruit, lemon, and caramel.

The flavor is all about the citrus; oranges, tangerines, and grapefruit lead the way. There's some subtle pineapple and mango followed by a rindy bitterness.

The feel is medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Creamy and smooth with just enough bite. Alcohol is present but only just.

Overall, a great and flavorful DIPA. It's full of citrus flavor and has just enough malt presence to provide some balance. Great beer.

1 PINT can
Served in an oversized, stemless, wine glass

This beer pours like pineapple juice. It is yellow and turbid. It is topped with an inch of beige head that leaves lacing rings as consumed.

The aroma is citrus, lemon grass, and is a little dank.

The flavor starts out with citrus. Through the middle I get grassy notes. The finish is pretty clean.

Medium mouthfeel

This is another super easy drinking DIPA from Hoof. Well done.

A hazy yellowish orange double IPA. Strong butterscotch nose and taste but still very smooth, light, and drinkable. Very different from a regulation DIPA and very, very good.

Dangerous since it has a nice lemon finish and seemingly light, fizzy mouthfeel, but it packs a whallop at 8.0. One could quickly drink 4 and then be incoherent. Enjoyed it.

Great local beer form a a small but mighty brewery. Wonderful citrus notes and aroma. Color is a hazy amber with nice white head. Still have 4 in the fridge and waiting for the next release.

Eureka hopped, canned less than a week ago
16oz can poured into a tulip

A- pours a hazy yellow-orange color with a one-finger creamy white head that retains for a while before leaving some lacing behind

S- fresh orange pith and grapefruit peel up front, followed by some earthy/green notes, hints of pine & resin. Clean underlying malt

T- resinous and slightly peppery hops up front, with plenty of herbal notes following. Leafy green mid-palate before finishing clean, a bit of resinous burn on the throat

M- medium body with low carbonation leads to a flat mouthfeel at first, that eventually turns slightly creamy into the finish

O- aroma was a little more complex that taste, but still very enjoyable overall

L - pours a pale, nectarine-like opaque orange juice. Let's just a sliver of light through. Creamy head with some nice legs.

S - lemon meringue. Light orange with a piney sappiness in the back end.

T - more of that robust lemon drop candy up front. Crisp, piney bitterness. It's, like, really bitter! Slight malt sweetness toward the end. Marshmallow. Grapefruit with a dry finish.

F - balanced mouthfeel. Slight bit of prickling, but I'm not sure if that's the hops or the carbonation!

O - solid DIPA, but that's about it. Not a whole lot of different flavors, but it is unique and a good showcase for the Idaho 7 hop, something you don't see very often!

Really well made dipa. Decent aroma with a typical haze that's the craze. But this beer really shines with it's juicy but all at the same time feel. Citrus flavors with a slight malt touch to round it out. Hoof Hearted all the way.

Thanks to fiver29 for my first taste of this mysteriously emerging brewery. Bright yellow 16 oz. can with what appears to be a band of oatmeal cookies on it. Someone needs to quit sniffing powdered hops. Citra release.

The pour is straight twilight zone - pulpy orange juice mixed 50/50 with lemonade you’d have to strain with your teeth. The minimal head is more like a Rorschach test of while whirls on the surface. Smells like a crushed grapefruit, more fruitiness than I’ve ever smelt in a non-fruited beverage. If they didn’t add fruits to it, that’s impressive.

Everybody Wants Some might be a slight exaggeration. The grapefruit from the nose drops about sixty eight stories into plain old grapefruit, tangerine, orange juice, bright sunshine, dash of Anita Bryant, moderate bitterness, pine, a small kitchen sink, pool cue chalk. The finish is all earthy orange juice. A bit heavy, this could use a dose of carbonation, but I could have done a bomber nonetheless.

Hits the unique button with both opposable thumbs. If it was as good as it was different, it’d be in the top 1% (no offense to the 99%). Very good beer.

Appearance ... Pour opaque, milky yellow-gold in a Brussels glass from can... I like the look but many might be turned off by it its think, cloudy appearance... Honestly if not familiar with the beer I would swear this was a bottom of keg yeast bomb lol

Smell is acidic, grapefruit and citrus

Taste... Much like smell very tropical grapefruit and citrus with dank undertones... Bitterness lingers in a very subdued way...

Feel... Weird for me personally... Has a watery feel with a ton of acid bite but not a carbonated type I am accustomed to...

Overall... It's a good beer... Ended up rating it as. 4.12 on BA.... It has a lot of flavor but not a ton of complexity.... Middle mouth feel is solid and carries over the flavor a of dank grapefruit and citrus but does not open up to any other flavor as it drinks.... If that makes any sense.... Beer remains consistent in flavor as it warms.... I dig it but one can is enough in one sitting :0)

On-draft at the brewpub.

Pours dark yellow to orange with a quite a haze to it. It actually looks murky more than hazy in my opinion. I tried several Hoof Hearted beers in this sitting and this was the murkiest/haziest of them all.

Flavors of mango, dirty orange juice, citrus, hop funk, musk, and bitter hops meld together in harmony. It finishes bitter and tart on the sides of my tongue.

Medium bodied. I wouldn't drink several of these, but I would have one or two again.

Cloudy bright light yellow.

Dry citrusy and hoppy.

Not drastically different than Wangbar, slightly fizzier and more bitter without the rounding out of the oatmeal.

A tad more bitter than their other beers I've had, but still closer to East coast styles than West.

Bottle share from last night. A nice imperial IPA to break up the endless parade od sours. Thick and meaty, in your face hops, but not overdone, and best of all, tasty stuff. Kudos for the label shout out to "Better Off Dead". Equinox version

Equinox. Tulip glass. No date.

L. Light orange with full haze. 2 finger head with moderate lacing.
S. Lots of sweet mango, pineapple and grapefruit. Mild hops.
T. A bit more hop forward. Some nice pine notes with sweet tropical fruits mixed in. Finished with a mild bitterness.
F. Not overly carbonated, but as someone else mentioned, it has a bit of tongue tingly to it.

Nelson (there needs to be separate listing for each hop release) review.

Pours out like grapefruit/pineapple juice, completely murky and hazy.

Aroma is full of white wine/white grape notes and grapefruit with a bit of tangerine.

Taste is super dominated by grapefruit zest, peel and juice flavors. Decent bit of white grape notes that are typical of Nelson and some tangerine sweetness on the finish.

Medium bodied and light mouthfeel, but kinda chalky/yeasty which I'm not a fan of. Hides the alcohol VERY well! Another tasty Hoof release.

Had the equinox version on tap at the 1/10/16 can release of Wangbar. Nice unfiltered IPA that looks like orange juice. Thick mouthfeel for the style - which in my opinion is a good thing. Really an impressive beer. Watch out for hoof hearted.

Another Hoofie special. Had the Equinox and the Nelson versions. Both were similar, with Nelson being more bitter and Equinox less "juicy". Combo review.

Looks like juice. Opaque as hell. Turbid and chalky. Not appealing at all.

Smell is nice - great citrus notes. Nelson has cattiness, Equinox has more tropical. Really great, bright nose.

Taste is OK. There's a chalkiness and lack of balance (not enough bitterness) in the Equinox, while Nelson is more bitter but a bit astringent. Just an unpolished beer in terms of taste.

Mouthfeel is OK, I think the yeast makes it a bit chalky.

Overall, this was OK. I'm not a fan of IPA's that look like Hefe's because the yeast messes up the taste. That, unfortunately, was the case here. For example, Fat Heads had a single hop Equinox out at the same time and it ran circles around Hoofie's.
