radarsock (1115) - Massachusetts, USA - NOV 11, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 12, 2013 Definitely bitterer than previous S&S I’ve had. $8 for the 8oz. pour at Positive Pie, the Montpelier location. From notes. To pint, it pours a darkish orange with a trim off-white ringed head barely a fingernail in length. Smells and tastes of beets, astringent hops, pineapple, candy cane sticks, beef bone marrow, peated malt, seaweed, and marsh rosemary dominate the forefront sensory. Heather, aloe, radishes, mint, tea leaves, and clay experienced by swallow. Really something here.

750ml growler into a HF wine glass. Huge thanks to Frank for this! Pours a super hazy golden amber body that almost hints towards being brown. Silky long lasting retention with a gorgeous layer of white foam. Looks perfect. S - Huge blast of citrus, pine, juicy tropical fruits, dank resin, and biscuits. Really nice aroma. T - Bitter grapefruit into mango and papaya juice. Ends with a biscuity cracker malt base and some pine and chalkiness. Mouth feel is creamy and rich with the abv becoming noticeable but not too deterring. O - A damn solid DIPA. Not as exciting as SS5 but this is just so well balanced and fresh tasting.

Growler @ Richard’s tasting. Hazy light orange pour with a white head. Fruity as hell. Peach, melon, mango, pineapple, and grapefruit. Big pine notes and a hint of pale malt. Flavor is juicy and fruity. Tons of mango, peach, pineapple, melon, grapefruit, and tangerine. Light bitterness, some pine, light malt, and dough.

From 750ml growler, thanks to Mac, 09/22/2013. Pours cloudy orange, head swirls on the surface, sticky lacing left around the glass. Aroma is bright orange essence, juicy, light grapefruit and touch of pine, fresh hop character. Taste follows suit: tangerine and grapefruit juice, caramel with bitter finish. Medium body, soft and creamy, smooth. Super tasty, definitely top tier.

Dogbrick (9320) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 28, 2013
Pours from a swingtop bottle a bright orange-gold color with a medium foamy ivory white head that dissipates slowly. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of floral hops, citrus and malt. Medium-bodied with flavors of citrusy hops, grainy malt and mango. The finish is moderately bitter with a tropical fruit and hops aftertaste. Good beer all around.

Fresh growler. Grapefruit & juicy fruits like whoa. Citrus galore! Gorgeous pour, as always. Bitter on the back end without resinous linger. Plenty of malt backbone. Damn, this is fantastic.

Growler split with GT2. Beautiful, translucent mango juice pour. Thick, eggshell foam. Aroma is soft, floral, citrus, hay/farm. Taste is juicy, citrus hop bite, grapefruit bitterness and acid. Palate is the highlight- balanced, doughy, refreshing. Loved this one. Wow.

GT2 (9272) - San Diego County, California, USA - SEP 25, 2013
750mL flip-top thanks to DoctorB2B. Full haze, glowing peach pour. Medium white foam with delicate lacing. Fresh peach and butterscotch nose with mild salt, sweat, and thick melon sorbet. Taste is fresh and juicy with a pretty hefty white alcohol Gin bite. Long, herbal sage and white pepper finish. Alcohol is apparent, but the overall experience is juicy, fresh, and soft. Really nice as always. Amazingly quenching, soft palate that comes off as mango, white grapefruit sorbet. One of my favorite DIPAs ever.

Lukaduke (2652) - Gray, Maine, USA - SEP 22, 2013
Pours a cloudy yellow golden color with two fingers of the sticky eggshell foam. The nose is so inviting... big fruit notes of mango, pineapple, some citrus even a touch of fuji apple mixed with some earthy straw and pith. The palate follows and is so dialed in with balance between sweet, bitter and earthy, just wow from beginning to end this beer is a DIPA perfection.

UPDATED: MAR 13, 2015 750ml growler poured into a tulip. Pours hazy golden with a lacy, white head. Aroma of citrusy and resinous and floral hops, some pale and caramel malts, and a little spiciness. Flavor the same with a great hoppiness. Smooth to average texture. Another really good beer from HF. Edit: Why did I only give this a 4?
