COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Society and Solitude #3: The series of experimental Double IPAs continues. This one is hopped with ample amounts of Columbus and is reminiscent of… an Imperial Harlan.

Served on-tap at Teresa’s Next Door during Philly Beer Week. A - Pours peach orange with a frothy one and a half finger tall white head leaving small trails of lace down parts of the glass. S - Smells of fresh cut tropical fruit and pungent citric hops from start to finish. Some lightly toasted grains and a touch of booze are present as well. T - Starts off with plenty of citric hop bitterness slowly giving way to hints of citric zest, a bit of sweetness and a tiny bit of booze. Finish has plenty of hop bitterness, leaving the palate dried long after the finish. M - Crisp body with a ton of hoppy flavor and moderate carbonation. Plenty of hop bitterness throughout, a touch of sweetness toward the end, with a bit of dryness at the end of each sip. O - As typical with the hoppy HF beers, this ones description is spot on. Not as good as the What is Enlightenment? I had but still a very good DIPA.

Thanks, Patrick! Gorgeous bright orange pour, with a modestly creamy consistency, some healthy looking sediment as if the beer was fresh-squeezed, and a booming potent head. This is basically Heady Topper with a bit more spice, huge body and full mouthfeel, massively floral flavors. Columbus everywhere. Spruce, grapefruit rind, hop pellet. Very reminiscent of Heady! That’s boss.

750 ml flip top. Pours a hazy golden orange color with a medium sized white head that leaves decent lacing. The aroma has big floral and resin hops, some grapefruit citrus and catty notes. Minimal malt presence. The flavor has a doughy malt base with some yeast that gives way to citrus, resin and herbal hops. Good bitterness at the finish that last for a while; dry. Another in the long line of solid offerings from HF.

Pours a deep hazy gold aroma of bitter pine and grapefruit. Taste follows, a bit heavy and dry. Malts are there but overpowered by the hops. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

blankboy (6277) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 18, 2012
My bottle [750ml] shared with HogTownHarry & GregClow -- c/o Glouglouburp. May 15. Pours a hazy, very bubbly, golden-orange with a large lasting fluffy white head. Good lacing on the glass. Aroma: Wow! The lovely, big hoppy aroma is citrusy, resiny, piney and juicy along with lots of fruit and that’s pretty much it, it’s all about the hops and I love it. Flavour: Wow again! Hoppy, hoppy, hoppy! There’s some alcohol there but only a little. Big bitter finish. Medium bodied. This is simply amazing!

pour is a dark hazy peach with a slightly off white head and decent lace. The nose is extremely nice, heavy grapefruit and citrus, notes of orange peel and zest. The taste offers more grapefruit, fairly tart, nice citrus in the back and assertively gentle bitterness in the finish. The body is airy and soft with a fair carbonation and semi dry finish. This is a great ipa with an extremely assertive hop, nice tropical notes, with enough malt undertones in the nose and flavor to keep it in check.

Can’t decide which I like better: this or Heady Topper. Definitely up there with the top Double IPAs I’ve tried. Complex aroma and taste, with a very clean but lingering finish. Truly lovely beer. From a 750ml bottle fresh from the brewery.

Medium statured white head, good retention and lace.earthy, piney nose, juicy. body is almost medium with a soft carboantion, lil resiny. Nice juicy, fruity hop flavors with a light malt undertaking, almost west coatish. Dry fruity finish with a tame bite. Still very nice. Props to dtmets84 for the bomber.
