4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: NOV 11, 2012 thank you thomas for picking me up a growler, i know this is your favorite.
its a truly beautiful beer, light orange with pinkish hue reminiscent of grapefruit juice.
smell is pine and citrus. sour (diesel) scent which is hilarious, to me at least..........
This tastes so so good... very dry on the palate with an intense rush of hops. The citrus in the nose follows through to the back of my tongue. slightly bitter after taste. Overall another top notch brew from HF

Pour is a hazy golden yellow with tons of tight white head. Nose is huge, tons of bitter grapefruit with notes of pine and hop resin. Taste is more balanced, notes of grain and some underlying sweet malt. Extremely clean with no sugars, tons of hop punch. Strong grapefruit and pine with a touch of resin. Bitterness is present but well integrated through the soft well carbonated finish. Body is delicate and light. Great stuff.

A: Very hazy and yellow/orange in color. Great two finger foamy head that continues to linger for awhile.
S: Very fruity and piney upfront with citrus and tropical notes. .
T: Nicely dry and refreshing. Solid bitterness throughout but not harsh or overpowering. Citrus with a bit of lemon some mango.
M: Medium carbonation. Nicely dry and crisp. Very refreshing.
O: A little over-hyped but really solid and something I would always drink. Reminds me of Lunch.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample thanks to Leighton at CBC Clerkenwell. Amber, hazy, medium white head. Nose is grain malt, lemon citrous rind, grapefruit, orange and lemon citrous, sticky homemade marmalade, soft citrous fruit. Taste is not what I expected. It’s like a really strong American Pale Ale meets a saison. There’s some funkiness, and soft citrous fruit, lemon and grapefruit rind, citrous bitterness, but soft and fresh. Grain husky malty and grain musty.

Golden pour, white head. Nose is citrus, perfect balance of hops and malt, fresh water, earthiness. Taste is citrus, pine, fresh water, grapefruit. So clean and smooth, dissolves into the palate, lingering bittering hops and pine.

Draft. Pours orange with thin bubbly head that fades. Sourish cheese aroma over medium carbonation that sticks to the glass. Nice ipa with medium complexity.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured into Schlitz Chalice from growler; Pours cloudy golden with a thin quickly dissipating white head. Aroma heavy with citrus, pine, floral, pineapple, a little musky. Taste is a little sweet malt up front loaded with citrus fruit, then a nice hop kick on the back end when the pine and floral notes come through. This has a lot going on and it’s all awesome. Medium to heavy body, slightly oily mouthfeel, fantastic beer. The scary thing is that I recall this being even better on tap.
