PhillyCraft (3441) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 30, 2012
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2012 On tap at TND / Jose Pistolas, pours hazy golden orange. Head was medium and staying. Aromas of grapefruit, pine resin, tropical fruit, and some nice malt backbone. Taste was the same tropical citrus from the nose with some sweet caramel malt hidden, other notes of fresh herbs, and tangerine. I think I like Edwards aggressive side better. Cheers

Draft. 10 oz. Pours a massively hazy dank guzzy orange yellow with a full, thickly fluffy, white meringue head. Aroma of lemon, dry grapes, farmhouse funk, hop resin, and fresh grapefruit. Palate is dry, stringent, and cuttingly bitter. Very grapefruity and lemony flavors in the finish. Excellent IPA.

UPDATED: SEP 12, 2012 On tap at the brewery. This beer kicks so much ass it’s not even humane. Consumed as soon as the keg was ready to drink and got one of the first pours from the keg- beer doesn’t get any fresher than this! Golden hazy pour which sports a robust and long lasting white frothy foam. The nose can only be likened to the offspring between a pine tree, a marijuana plant, and a barrel of fresh orangepeel. So herbal and dank with huge evergreen notes to boot. The malt character is clean and never overpowerin, and never acts of compete against the hop onslaught. The palate and carbonation are simply perfect- caressing and pillowy with a smacking finish that oozes the dankest of alpha acids. The best IPA I’ve ever had.

Leighton (11874) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 7, 2012
Growler shared with the fellas in NYC at Sander’s place. Pours faintly hazy, rich gold with a frothy, white head. Intense aroma of ripe grapefruit, mango, subtle honey maltiness, fresh pine. Medium sweet flavor with tons of pine, some lightly toasted pale malts, bitter grapefruit and grass, faint earth. Medium bodied with average, smooth carbonation. Strong, fresh and hoppy to finish with plenty of earthy pine and deep grapefruit. Quite epic.

DocLock (8054) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 2, 2013
Draft at Capone’s and Railroad Street. Pours very hazy dull gold with white head. Nose is pinet earthy malt, grapefruit and mango. Not a super vaporous nose, but a complex nose that sets the tone for what is to come. Tastes complex, silky smooth; one of the most velvety beers I have ever quaffed, with a nice piney resiny hop flavor, well balanced tropical fruit, including mango, tangerine, and papaya at mid-palate, and some black pepper at the finish. This one is sublime, and vastly underrated here. I call this one the Big Brother of Two Hearted.

ThirstyBird (1706) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - MAR 30, 2013
Tasted on tap at the Blackback Pub. Appears light honey color with a nice white head. Smell is a big citrus and tropical fruit nose. Taste is great citrus - a lot of grapefruit, some nice malr sweetness in the middle and ending crisp and very slightly bitter. Light body with elegant carbonation. So damn good...as always!

egajdzis (5401) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 25, 2010
[Draft @ Capones] Lightly hazy amber color with a medium sized white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of floral hops, pine, skunk, toffee, and citrus. Taste of pine, grapefruit, citrus, herb, and a bitter finish.

mcberko (7230) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 11, 2013
750mL growler, sent from Glouglouburp (thanks a lot, Dany!), pours a cloudy golden yellow with a lingering medium white head. Classic Hill Farmstead aromatics, with loads of fresh floral hops, citrus zest, a little bit of farmhouse notes, and a big biscuity malt backing. Flavour is even more intense, with monolithic floral hops, dry grass and citrus coating the tongue; there is some biscuity malt providing solid support without ever interfering - no malt flavour at all really. The meadow-fresh floral notes absolutely engulf the palate, with a pronounced astringency. Very dry palate - one of HF’s driest. Gorgeous blonde IPA from the masters.

Growler at THOB share. Pours cloudy dirty lemonade with a white head. Aroma is orange, floral, earth. Light and soft with orange and floral hop. Finish is grapefruit peel bitter.
