4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
750 mL growler. Thanks Moy! The pour is a reddish orange gold with a thinner white head that leaves a beautiful lace on the brewery tulip. The aroma is incredible. Citrusy hops, with a grapefruit character and a tropical fruitiness to it. Maybe a light piny sensation on the back end. The flavor is so similar. The hoppiness is heavy, but there isn't a overbearing bitterness. The fruitiness and light sweetness at the end is delightful. The mouth feel is almost perfect, and the dryness at the end is outstanding for an APA.

On tap at the Reservoir: Pours cloudy straw with a nice white head. Lots of citrus, grapefruit, on the nose. Flavor is grapefruit, slight pine, slight biscuit, and a nice hoppy finish. Medium bodied, perfect carbonation, I could live off this beer.

Growler thanks to Mads. Cloudy golden with a lasting white head. Lovely citrus hoppy aroma, with grapefruit and orange, along with peach and pine. Dry, citrus hoppy flavour with no disturbing signs of malt or yeast. Fabulous!

On draught at Three Penny. Another excellent brew from HF. Can’t go wrong with anything they make just wish I didn’t have to drive 4 hours to get it.

On draft in a tulip glass at Farmhouse tap and grill. An amazing little beer. Fresh aromas of pine and citrus, but not overdone or aggressive like so many pale ales (that are more like "light" versions of a bigger IPA). Excellent balance, this beer is all about a deft touch and reminding you that a pale ale should be about finesse rather than density. Just enough hops for your mouth to play around with but nothing more. Easy drinking and left me wanting more.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: Slightly hazy amber body with a short light tan head.
Aroma: Orange and pineapple, very citrus heavy. Moderate strength.
Taste: Thin with lots of citrus, bitter orange mostly. Clean and short finish.
Palate: Light bodied, highly carbonated.
Overall: Clean pale ale, but not out of this world. The growler was 2 weeks old though, would try again fresh.
