Growler thanks to Brandon in exchange for some rot box junk. (Definitely won that trade! ;) ) Pours a slightly hazy orange with small white head. Growler was filled a week and a half after I opened it so shouldn’t be that much of an issue of freshness. Aroma is, naturally, big citrus with more on the orange peel side of things. Taste is at first slightly week for a DIPA but as it warms there is some sweetness and an overly bitter lemon/orange rind. A little thin at first on the finish but evens out ok. I’ll admit that DIPAs aren’t really my go to anymore so I’m probably judging this a few points off of what I used to. Still have to try and tick as many DIPAs as I can since it is my only shot at all 50 of a style.

Draft. Deep cloudy gold with thin white head. Huge citrus and pine Aroma. Taste adds a touch of caramel and peach. Slightly thick and sticky mouthfeel. Huge and excellent.

Growler - Lots of lemon and tangerine. Cloudy gold with a light white head. Just as it smells with a dry bitter finish. Light and easy drinking, very flavourful.

Franckg (440) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 23, 2015
Arômes d’orange, zeste de citron et une touche d’alcool. Un parfum de fraicheur me dit d’arrêter de sentir et de boire! En bouche, c’est un party de fruits. Tout est trop et très balancé. Le houblon citra est dominant, frais et gouteux. Des effluves d’orange, citron, pamplemousse et d’ananas se font sentir. Un peu d’astringence mais à 8% d’alcool, c’est plutôt normal. L’amertume est puissante avec des pointes de pin et de zeste d’orange. Un autre chef-d’œuvre de HF. C’est comme boire un jus de fruits au déjeuné. J’en boirais tous les jours.

5 Kay, 7.5 Kay, 10 Kay Tasting. Big thanks to Leighton for this one. Hazy gold beer, small pale cream colour head. Mild orange and hop skunk nose. Palate is airy and semi dry with good fine carbonation. Mellow and light pale malts. Big skunky hops, slightly dank. Spicy herbal bitterness. Little floral piny sweetness. Bitterish orange morphing in to peel. Light airy finish with a peel bitter linger. Nice. Very nice.

Huge thanks to Paul. Growler filled 12/18/14, shipping got damaged the first time. Almost two weeks past the HF tag, so hopefully still good. Really cloudy golden yellow. Smell is bitter hoppy orange juice. Taste has orange citrus, almost like you are drinking fresh OJ pulp without the pulpy mouthfeel. Slightly bitter, slightly sweet. A very good IPA, but not the best from HF.

Catching up on older ratings from notes. From growler shipped in from the Northeast at a bottle share at Upson’s house on November 9, 2014. Pours a very hazy golden brown with clingy white foam. AROMA has strong tangerines along with tropical fruits and soapy hops. FLAVOR of bitter citrus, grapefruit, and more tropical fruits. Dry and only mildly bitter. Quite good but not as nuanced as I might have hoped (the HF Abner was certainly the better DIPA). (170, 938)
