SlovakSniper (3013) - Candiac/Frelighsburg, Quebec, CANADA - APR 18, 2013
Un verre bien rempli avant de quitter la place avec une tonne de bières pour une délicieuse pizza du Parker Pie. Encore une fois, un regard du tonnerre. Un liquide bien jaune et sa tête blanchâtre qui reste figée dans le temps. Une inévitable dentelle qui s’enroule sur des kilomètres et des kilomètres. Une fois plongé, mon nez vibre au son tropical de ce houblon que j’aime et qui m’aime. Des ananas, des agrumes et des mangues mûries qui réussissent à hypnotiser mes narines. Une belle petite bouffée féline qui vient me rappeler que le Citra reste le Citra. Des céréales bien senties mais volontairement mises de côté par mon cerveau qui salive devant cette fraîcheur houblonnée. Une fois avalé, le houblon implose et laisse des saveurs de pamplemousse, d’orange, de mangue et de fruits que je ne cherche plus à identifier. Je savoure le moment. La vie est belle et mon corps est un puits sans fond. En bouche, une autre leçon du maître Shaun. Ceux et celles qui donnent une note inférieur à 4 sur 5 pour le palate de n’importe quelle bière de HF devraient être bannis à vie de Ratebeer et condamnés à boire pour le reste de leur misérable vie des caisses de Schoune. Dans les derniers moments de cette dégustation, une réflexion longue sur cette finale pleine de résine et de fruits doux et la beauté des yeux rieurs de cette charmante jeune femme qui manie le tap handle comme une déesse.

UPDATED: OCT 28, 2013 On tap in a tulip at the brewery. Pours cloudy golden with a lacy, white head. Aroma of citrus hops, resin, some floral notes, a good amount of caramel malts, and light dough. Flavor the same. Smooth texture. A pretty good IPA. Edit: Poured from a growler. Aroma strong of citrusy and fruity and almost spicy hops. Flavor the same. Really good

Solid citra based ipa. Not too sweet, very nice dry finish, citrus and tropical flavors, pleasant bitterness.

750 mL Batch 2 growler, compliments of Conor, shared with Matt and Paul. Hazy, peachy amber color with a large, dense off white head. Nice retention and lacing. Aroma is intensely tropical; mango, pineapple and juicy grapefruit with light alcohol and irrelevant malt. What you would expect from citra hops... Flavor is not nearly as sweet, but still less bitterness and rind then I remember from batch 1. Strong pulp and rind balance out the juicy tropical flavors. Medium thick, chewy well-carbonated body with strong carbonation. I like this better than batch 1, but I’m still not crazy about an imperial IPA that only uses citra hops. Not particularly subtle or complex; I’d rather have HF Galaxy or Abner or Edward or Ephraim...

Huhzubendah (2399) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 13, 2012
Growler shared by yourefragile. Thanks Mike! The beer is yellowish, on the fringes of orange. It’s ever so slightly hazy, appearing clear for the most part. The head is about 1/2" thick and leaves a healthy amount of lacing behind. The aroma tells me I am in for a treat. Tropical citrus galore, with oranges, grapefruit, mango, pineapple. Oh yeah... All the wonderfully fresh fruit and hop flavors shine through brilliantly. Malt presence is virtually nonexistent, as it should be. The beer is medium bodied with a creamy feel. The finish is dry, with a lasting hop bitterness. Superb. Highly recommended. Serving type: growler Reviewed on: 06-30-2011

50belair (2145) - Florida, USA - SEP 2, 2012
UPDATED: MAY 7, 2013 Growler shared by Seth. Cloudy yellow pour with a white head. Hoppy nose. Pine and floral hop notes. A little on the minerally side. Slightly unbalanced.. Original rating 4.0 Re-rate (another growler thanks to Seth). Enticing hop aromas. This version was much more balanced with fantastic citrus hop notes. Great mouthfeel and good body.

keepersj12 (2630) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - AUG 2, 2012
This is an outstanding brew. Pours a light amber with a thin head. The aroma is loaded with citrus and a little pine and fruit. The flavor has the citrus, pine and fruit over a nice malt profile. The finish is crisp and clean.

Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured hazy amber color with an average frothy white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Medium to heavy lemon citrus hop and resin aroma. Medium to full body with slick texture and soft carbonation. Moderate to heavy smooth bittersweet citrus flavor with a moderate to heavy bittersweet finish of average to long duration.This is a standout beer.
