daknole (8943) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAR 30, 2014
Lightly cloudy gold pour, white head. Delicious piney hips up front then lead into a citrus zest flavor with a slight backbone of malt. As usually, supremely drinkable.

UPDATED: JUN 10, 2014 Growler kindly shared by Kaufmanised pre CBC day 2. Hazy yellow with a lasting off-white head. Aroma is sweet, malty and rather hoppy - grapefruit. Flavor is quite sweet and rather bitter. Dry and moderate bitter finish. 030514

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.

Leighton (10542) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 1, 2014
Growler. Pours lightly hazy gold with a frothy white head. Beautiful bouquet, with bright citrus up front, then some more dank, ripe citrus and melon, with suggestions of pale bread. Light-medium sweet with some earthy and rindy bitterness, further citrus fruits, faint tangy lemon, grass. Medium bodied with fine, massaging carbonation. Lightly oily and resinous to finish, with some bitter rind and grass, melon, pineapple, lemon and grapefruit. Solid.

ThirstyBird (1486) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - MAY 22, 2014
Pours a dull hazy light golden with a big fluffy off white had. The smell is lemon zest, citus. The taste is lemon, grapefruit, peaches ending fruity and tart. The body is light with the typical elegant HF carbonation.

2x samples @ brewery, but the keg kicked soon thereafter so no grooler fills offered. potent juicy notes of citrusy juicy oranges, grapefruit, tangerines. Bit of pineapple. subtle resin bitterness. subtle cracker biscuit malt. moderate dryness. just fine.

750 swing top growler thanks to WillRunForBeer! Pours a nice foamy head. Tropical fruit, peach, citrus throughout. Lots of citra. Yet again, a solid IPA from HF. Delicious.

tectactoe (1526) - Michigan, USA - MAY 20, 2014
Growler: Thanks to Jason for saving me a generous pour of this. Opaque, muddy orange like swampy orange juice with a soapy, slightly off-white foam littered on top. Aroma bursts with pungent, wet citric notes, mainly tropical like pineapple & guava with lighter undertones of peach, grapefruit, & tangerine. Mild oily dankness in the back-end with just the lightest note of biscuit from the malt. Lightly bitter up front, but overall pretty tame for the style; hop leaves covered in white pepper with hints of hemp & green onion. Sharp collision of tropical & citric with a clashing of sweet pineapple & bitter orange rind, leading to a lingering finish full of sticky, wet hop oil & a touch of sweet crackers coating the palate. Clean & smooth from front to back. Shaun Hill simply has the American IPA category by the throat. Lovely.

Growler pour. Pours a hazy gold with a white head of foam. Tropical fruits, and musty banana come through in the aroma. Sweet throughout and dries out in the finish. Medium bodied and medium carbonation.
