4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
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.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
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?

Awesome piney citrus, grapefruit, booze and some malt. Pours cloudy orange with great head and lacing. Strong bitter finish. Average carbonation. Awesome balance. Wonderful hops showcase here. Maybe it is something in the water out here. Tap at brewery.

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Hazy light orange color, tinged with peach, thin white head. Bright burst of juicy mangoes, peaches, grapefruits, and oranges. Very mild sweetness that quickly gives way to dried orange peel bitterness. Smooth, crisp, and very soft texture. Lingering bitterness in the finish and virtually no alcohol presence.

Draft at brewery. Hazy gold, foamy white head. Smells like an orange grove in springtime. Followed by a hop explosion in your mouth. Wow!

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Growler smuggled back from VT by Alan, pours hazy golden orange, with light to medium head. Aromas of sweet malt, caramel, pineapple, and orange. Taste is most of the same, fruit punch, tangy citra, bitter galaxy. Excellent brew but it was better a year or so ago in philly. More sweetness now.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Swing top. Light golden pour with white head. Floral and herbal hop aromas dominate. Nice full hop flavors, but not too bitter, ert nice.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a really hazy orange with a thin white head that leaves fair lacing. Aroma is heavenly with pine and tropical fruits (mangoes?). Taste is sweet but everything is in check with fruit flavors again (some might say mangoes again but I will say peaches). Palate is clean, carbonation on the higher side but it is appropriate really. Bitterness is high but never harsh. Some perfume notes. Awesome, really.
