Fresh growler I bought from the brewery. Pours a medium shade gold with a white head. Aromas of straight up citrus fruit. Taste is semi dry and moderately bitter. Flavors consist of a beautifully woven tropical fruit explosion interwoven with bursts of sunshine, some blue spruce tree needles and light cracker malt. Like a drinkable Picasso. Mouthfeel and carbonation is spot on and the finish is citric and gently bitter. A work of art.

Growler thanks to Drake. Pours hazy gold with a prominent white head. Pretty strong orange peel accents on the nose. Mellow sugar cookie. Sea grass. General minerals and green biomass. Slightly pissy. Flavor is a bit more directly bitter than most HF IPAs I’ve tried. Bitter lemon and orange. Sweet cantaloupe. Just a touch of caramel. Dry grassy finish. Medium body, soft carbonation. Overall, not as delicate as some of their other offerings. Still good, however.

bytemesis (4101) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - FEB 16, 2015
Growler with thanks to BigKlip74! Pours hazy to cloudy golden amber with a medium creamy white head that mostly dissipates but leaves nice residual and lacing. Aroma is very citrus, with grapefruit and passionfruit as well as blood orange. Mineral water, just a bit of forest floor dankness. Flavor follows, light sweet to the point of dryness, light bitter, fruity and minerally, easy to drink. Medium body, standard creamy silky HF mouthfeel. Nice IPA.

hopscotch (9954) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - FEB 1, 2015
Growler... Pours hazy and golden with a small, creamy, white head. Decent retention. The aroma is of melons and peppery hops accompanied by a slap in the face with armpit muskiness. Light to medium-bodied and watery with jazzy carbonation. The flavor is fairly well-balanced, but leans a hair toward the bitter side of balance, as it should. There are bready and musky components as well. Finishes astringent, lightly bitter, and then dry. Growler provided by landhoney!

Bottle share in the CBC queue - thanks to Kaufmanised for bringing, no thanks to Cgarvieuk for not pouring me some and thanks again to whoever kindly shared the last of this. Hazy pale gold beer, small white head. Palate is light and semi dry. Fine carbonation. Smooth malts, good piney and spicey hops. Trace of marmalade underneath Light dry finish. Good stuff.
