VERY hazy and thick when poured. There wasn't a head to speak of. The nose is like a freshly picked citrus fruit, with equal parts hops. The taste is the same, like a thick orange juice with hops. This is a super New England style IPA.

Fresh can poured into fluted snifter.

Looks nice. Hazy straw with thick foamy white head. Settles and rings my glass with a thin collar.

Citrus and mango come through on the aroma with a hint of herbal or vegetal kicking around in the background.

Flavor is a bit more subdued than expected. Some tropical fruit, hint of sweetness and citrus zest. Grapefruit pith bitterness.

Moderate carbonation and medium body.

Hints at being a big hoppy brew but lacks the punch in its flavor.

Very clear pale golden body with a soapy white head. Aroma is a balance between citrus and pine. Flavor is a little more fruit and tropical, with the citrus and pine balancing out the big hoppy flavor. Feel is smooth and medium bodied. Solid beer.

Pours hazy and yellow, but with 2/3" white head on top. Good aroma of tropical fruit and citrus hop notes.

Taste, pretty good stuff. Bitterness in the 50ibu range, still dropping plenty of hop flavors similar to those in the nose, but this time in the taste/mouth feel. Not abrasive. Mango, passion fruit, pineapple, mild sweetness. Nothing really in the way of malt flavors on this one, you'll be searching for something beyond the usual caramel, toffee or toasted pale malt descriptors here. Doesn't finish dry, too much sweetness going for it to land in that descriptor.

I liked it, thanks to whoever sent them to me.

This is pretty tasty -- real nice tropical nose with a hint of dank. Taste is dank with a hint of tropical. As it warms the tropical approaches a balance with the dank. Slight bitter hop bite at the end that is a nice compliment to this one. Very drinkable. Thanks to BierRunner for three HH offerings. This brewery has my attention. Looking forward to more in the future.
