16 oz can. Packaged around 4/9/17. Poured into a teku.

L: Pours a hazy yellow/orange color. 3 fingers of white head that quickly subsided. Lacing was great. Stuck around the whole time.

S: fruit bomb. Melon. Big Oranges. Candied fruit. Small hop punch. Slight alcohol. Slight sweet maltiness. Slight berries.

T: hop bitterness hits you but not too big. Dank. Slightly sweet. Resin and slight pine. Grapefruit. Nice malt finish.

F: nice and soft. Flavor lasts but not like I would like it to.

O: great beer. Not as mind blowing as other HHB but real good.

Pours out a slightly hazy golden yellow (much clearer than usual).

Aroma is big on juicy orange, orange peel, dank notes, bit of stone fruits and a hint of pineapple.

Taste also follows the nose with layers and layers of different juicy, sweet orange notes. Definitely earthy dankness, some peach, mango and pineapple with a grassy finish.

Lighter medium bodied, crisp, clean and easy to drink. Very refreshing too.

Something different from Hoof and I really like it! Not my favorite or least favorite.

Brilliantly clear golden, unusual for this brewery. Aroma is very grassy, piney, with citrus notes of tangerine, lemon, grapefruit, and a bit of an acetone quality. Slightly skunky.

Flavor is more earthy throughout, with a hit of sharp citrus upfront that fades to pith mid palate, finishing biscuity and moderately bitter.
