tap at HF ann party. easily one of my favorite beers of the day during a day of many wonderful beers. Harlan is one of my favorite HF brews, think i gave it like a 4.6 or something. imperial harlan? well i would sure love to try it. quite good. aroma explodes with huge juicy tropical fruits, grapefruit, and fresh juicy oranges. hop forward for sure, but not overly bitter. pleasant apricot and orange fruit sweetness lends nice balance. dry. ultra tasty fresh on tap from the source. real nice.

750 growler from Carps. Thanks! dirty orange pour with a big soapy white head. Herbal, tropical, and a bit of onion hops in the nose. not much going on beside the hops, which is fine with me. Flavor is pretty cool like that too. No hint of the ABV, lighter body than I expected with less carbonation than I had expected. good.

The pour was hazy and cloudy like the sky yesterday except the color of gold with a white head. Aroma hop bomb for sure with a lot of citrus on the nose. More citrus on the taste with a plethora of hoppiness. Oh, what a wonderful beer!

Shared by Dak. Pours a hazy grapefruit color with an eggshell head. Aroma has some dank hops but also loads of sweet, citrusy hops. Taste is sweet and bitter. Medium bodied. Friggin’ awesome!

Flip-top growler from joebones3. Thanks! Hazy gold color, tight white foam on top, spotty lacing left on the glass. The aroma has big whiffs of tropical fruit; lemon rind, mango, and grapefruit coming to mind. There’s some pine noted as well. Not really any malt here. Going down this is medium-bodied, getting a little doughy malt flavor underneath a blast of tropical fruity hops. A bit herbal. The finish has a lengthy dry and bitter finish with notes of pine. Some alcohol heat sneaks in there toward the back end. Incredibly drinkable, though. I like the lower abv for a Double IPA. Excellent stuff.

Oh my. NOT disappointed. Holy crap. Hazy yellow/orange with a large long-lasting fluffy off white head. Smells like heaven - floral, citrus and tropical fruit, not much alcohol. Taste follows, a little more alcohol and the floral bitterness asserts more than the tropical fruit, and wonderfully catty too - could go 9/10 too. Perfect light body, moderate acidity and alcohol with a medium-long bitter finish - so good, and soooooo easy to drink too.

UPDATED: MAY 14, 2012 Huge thanks to a great trader for getting this growler out my way. Served in a Hill Farmstead long stem tulip. Pours a nice orange color with a good white head and a bit of lacing. Nose carries loads of dank hops. Columbus heaven. Can’t get enough. Body is light-medium with really nice bitterness. Fantastic.

Shared a growler. Poured a slightly hazy golden color with a white head. Aroma is grapefruits, hops, sweet malts. Flavor was a nice tropical fruit hop mix with nice sweet malts. Flavor was great, bitterness is good, with a balanced finish. Surprised.
