Growler, big thanks to Leighton buddy. London Bimble. It pours hazy gold with a small white head. The nose is fresh, orange, tangerine, sherbet, light funk, earth, candied peel and juicy mango. The taste is crisp, sherbet, grapefruit rind, mango, tangerine, alcohol kick, resin and minerals with a dry, earthy finish. Medium body and fine, prickly carbonation. Crisp, fresh and rather tasty. Very nice stuff.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Growler… This beer rocks!… Clear golden ale with a small, fat-bubbled, white head. Flimsy retention. The nose offers a plethora of hop greatness – pine, pineapple, orange peel, peach and white pepper. Medium-bodied and oily with tingly carbonation. This beer is dripping with fresh lupulin flavor, but is amazingly balanced. The high alcohol content is not remotely evident. Finishes bittersweet and continues to provide fantastic hop flavor for an extensively long time after each sip… including the final one… that I am somewhat sad to take. This world class growler of bliss was shipped to me by one of my favorite Canadians; Glouglouburp!

Growler @ Dan’s house, courtesy of Steve_0. Huge thanks! Pours a cloudy yellow appearance with a small white head. Richly piney, orange citrusy, grapefruity, a bit resiny, spicy hoppy aroma. A bit chewy, rich grapefruity, spicy, zingy orange citrusy, delicious flavor. Super easy to drink with no notice of this 10%. Nice stuff.

Let’s go ahead and put HF against the IBU heavy hitters, bec ause HF has shown that they are a BOTY candidate.
