A tip of the hat to Adrian. A sharp and grassy IPA. At first I thought it was made with wheat, but it turns out to have some oats in it. Very good of its kind.

Draft at brewery. Another great HF ipa, with light crisp malt and a sort of citrus bouquet, hints of grassy hops. Would love to try a larger, slightly warmer sample. But the foundation is there.

Growler from HF. Pours a hazy yellow straw gold with a large fluffy white head. Aroma of white grapefruit, mango, tangerine and bitter hops. Taste of white grapefruit, tangerine, bitter hops and hints of pineapple and mango. Very nice.

Growler poured into a Hill Farmstead wine stem. Pour: Body is a mostly hazy, bright mango body. A nice, two fingers of fluffy, sticky white head forms and leaves some nice lacing. Smell: Bright, juicy citrus notes explode on the nose. Orange, tangerine, and tangelo. Some pineapple. A nice light raw rolled oats sneaks in the background. Mostly controlled by heavy citrus fruits. Taste: More of the same from the nose - juicy grapefruit, orange juice, orange zest, and tangerine pulp. A touch of raw doughy sweetness. Lightly acidic from the orange juice. Finishes with a lingering citrus juiciness. Mouthfeel: Ridiculously refreshing and bursting with citrus juice. A lightly tingling carbonation mixes well with the acidity from the juice. Finishes with a lingering citrus. Overall: Another fantastic IPA with citrus juice added from Shaun. Ridiculously drinkable. Light a Society & Solitude #5 light.

Deux verres de dégustation en attendant de passer au cash. Une IPA pâle sur laquelle trône une mousse blanchâtre qui disparaît bien rapidement. Au nez, que du beau et du bon avec du pamplemousse juteux bien acidulé et des petites fleurs des champs. Sur les papilles, un jeu habille des houblons fruités et floraux avec la présence d’une base maltée bien pâle (blé, avoine?) et bien croquante. C’est bon, c’est facile à boire et ça fait drôlement sourire. En bouche, le liquide est mince, bien remué par les bulles et plutôt huileux. En finale, c’est amer et bien acidulé. Décidément, il est difficile d’être difficile avec les créations de cette superbe brasserie.

Multiple times. Looks like a HF IPA. Cloudy straw orange color with a dense, streaky off white head. Juicy grapefruit, orange peel, grassy bitter finish. Like a more citrus forward Edward.

Growler, 04/07/2014. Pours light golden copper, hazy, white head rests thick and foamy on the surface, lots of sticky lacing. Aroma is fizzy orange citrus, floral hops and touch of other white fruits, bed of fresh spruce, subtle earthiness near the end. Taste is melon, peach, sharper citrus and lemon hop character, medium spruce bitterness, grapefruit. Medium body, crazy smooth. Excellent.

Hazy lighter gold colour, loads of lace. Big citrus aroma, peach, grapefruit, pine. Sweetness up front gives away to all of the above mentioned. floral is the adjective I’m thinking of. Medium body.

cpetrone84 (1330) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 2, 2014
Pour is hazed pale yellow with a tight white head. Nose is mango, citrus, and grapefruit extremely strong. Faint touch of pine and herbal hop. Taste is not as fruity and bright as the nose. Taste has a hint of malt up front, lightly toasted. Hops take over, more grapefruit and less tropical fruit. Light herbal tea hop in back with a moderate bitterness in the finish. Well carbonated and soft body.
