Decorated with a cute, hilarious and somewhat filthy can label, the talented hop sculptors and adolescent marketers at Hoof Hearted put together an equally filthy good imperial IPA that's certain to bring people together. I think I have to bathe now.

Did We Just Become Best Friends? pours with a deep straw, moderatly turbid haze and topped with a light and arid meringue. Citrusy aromas spill onto the senses along with tart tropical fruit scents and hints of wine, orchard fruit and melon. Malt flavors seem of the sweetness of fruit juices, equipped with a fructose simple syrup, light honey and with a light pastry character.

But the hops simply bloom on the tastebuds as the sweetness dissolves and the fruit forward flavor of hops build into a juicy lather. Pineapple, passionfruit, white grapefruit, tangy under ripened orange, hints of gooseberry and kiwi, and then a refreshing honeydew softness. Smooth bitterness carries a bite of juniper and gin, with a kiss of white wine, spruce and freshly muddled herbs in the beer's waning bite.

Crisp, clean and refreshing from start to finish, the medium bodied beer relinquishes its weight early in the session and provides a dangerously drinkable dryness from the middle onward. Trending bitter and almost tart, the taste of citrus and tropical fruit rinds continue that gin-like zing deep in aftertaste.

Love the story on the can.
Pours very hazy with bright white head. The nose is not as thick of hops as I expected, but they are there. The taste, like the nose, isn't as heavy on hops as I figured, but again they are there. The follow through is juicy and hoppy, with a follow up of bready hiccup. Great beer that doesn't drink like the Abv
