I just deleted a review of this beer based on a bottle whose "best by" date was 6 months ago. I just got a fresh one and there was a world of difference. This is a very good fresh hops IPA. Pours a reddish amber color with a big frothy off white color. Head retention is very good and there are frothy partial rings of lacing on the pint glass. Good aroma of both citrus (orange) and piney hops. Good strong flavor as well. Both piney and citrus hops. Bitterness is just right and there is a good amount of caramel malt too. Mouthfeel is medium in richness (with the caramel malt adding sweetness) and nice and crisp. There is some resinous/oiliness in the mouthfeel as well. A very good IPA!!!!

Not a fan of too much citrus, unfortunately this one falls in that category for me.

12 oz. bottle poured into a pint glass.

L---Amber/orange with a small, off-white head that stuck around for a little while and left nice lacing.

S---Heavy citrus aromas. Grapefruit and lemon and orange.

T---Follows the nose. Grapefruit, orange and lemon. Truth in advertising, it tastes fresh squeezed.

F---Quenching, wet & refreshing. Perhaps a little bit meatier than I expected.

O---Absolutely excellent IPA. I can see myself having several on a hot day.

Shimmering orange with a thick head and a wowing permanent wall of lace.

Smell is fresh orange juice with grapefruit and corn. All from the hops? Wow again.

Taste is more bitter and piney with grass and orange rind.

Crisp with a light froth, yet very dry.

Pours a little dark for an IPA. Fair amount of lacing as well. Aroma is grapefruit. Taste is citrus/grapefruit and a nice bread-y malt. Feel is medium bodied, leaning towards the heavier side. Medium carbonation. Overall, a good IPA that is really about the grapefruit here.

Look: It pours light amber with an off white frothy head. Head retention is excellent. It is also fairly clear.

Smell: There is a strong aroma of grapefruit. There are also aromas of tropical fruit and low spice. In addition there is a low aroma of bread.

Taste: The flavors are more balance with grapefruit and tropical fruit as well as the bready malt. There is low spice in the background.

Feel: It has a moderate body that leans toward the full side and it is slightly slick. The bitterness is moderate lasting long into the finish.

Overall this beer has a good balance between the grapefruit, tropical elements and the bread.

I wouldn't drink this a lot, but it is definitely a unique beer that should be tired. A great hot-weather choice.

Nice hazy, amber look with a small off-white head, probably from the way I poured it from the bottle. Lots going on with the nose. Lemon, orange peel, and some old road. Very inviting. Taste was just as good. Malty on the front end, with a great citrusy, floral, spicy finish. Balance was remarkable. Really liked this beer.

Look - slightly opaque orangish amber with a one-finger off-white head with decent retention and spotty lacing.
Smell - kinda subtle aromas in the form of citrus, pine, and some sweet caramel malts.
Taste - this is super balanced with the same notes blending perfectly. It finishes with a major hit of juicy citrus and dank resin, which both linger on in the aftertaste.
Feel - high carbonation, thicker body for the style, and smooth finish.

Squeeze a lime wedge in it for an extra electric zip. It also mellows out the flavor if you consider this beer a little too robust. 8.7/10.0

Good color, fresh crisp feel, especially Hennit is served very cold. Worth finding along your beer journey.
