mathieuc (1280) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 15, 2013
Growler filled on Wednesday. Pours a cloudy and pale yellow with a thin white head that leaves nice lacing. Aroma of pine needles, citrus and weed. Taste is bitter with a little backing sweetness. Flavors of grapefruit rind and coniferous. Carbonation level is medium, mouthfeel a little juicy. As usual, HFS delivers a really great DIPA. This serie is absolutely stunning.

maneliquor (3103) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - DEC 5, 2013
Bottle cheers to the great bloke who is Leighton. Pours hazy orange with a small, very firm white head leaving great lacing. Nose is huge zest! Big citric zest with a touch of pepper and lemon. Grapefruit towards the end with pine and lime. Taste has juicy citrus with line leaves, pepper, straw, lemon rind and grapefruit. Bitter sweet stuff. Great beer

Marheb (2047) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 28, 2013
Suprême kiwi et chlorophylle dans une soupe hyper tropicale mais poivrée à la fois. L’amertume est celle d’une cocotte fraîche et d’un afflux d’agrumes. Elle est définitivement spéciale mais pas au niveau de certaines autres de Shaun.

orangesol (853) - Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 13, 2013
Served on-tap, reviewed from notes.

A - Pours a fuzzy peach color with a nice one and a half finger tall white head, dissipating down to a light film, leaving spotty trails of lace down the sides of the glass.

S - Smells of strong grapefruit pith, fresh cut grass, pale malt and a touch of sweetness. The fruit / grass combo is killer, makes this one a joy to smell.

T - Starts off with the intense fruitiness, mostly grapefruit and other citric rind, slowly giving way to the grassy hop bitterness, pine needles, pale malt and a touch of caramel sweetness. The balance of flavors is great yet intense, hard to pull off. Finish is pretty dry, lingering long after the finish.

M - Medium body with moderate carbonation. Fruity, bitter feel throughout with a but if dryness at the end of each sip.

O - Probably my favorite to date from the series. It has everything I look for in a DIPA yet it remains incredibly drinkable. Amazing work on this one Shaun.

hopscotch (9158) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 4, 2013
Growler... Hazy yellow ale with a small, fat- bubbled, white head. The aroma points toward huge dry-hopping - armpit funk is joined by citrus fruits, tropical fruits and melons. Full-bodied with lively carbonation. The fruity, juicy, flavor leans just a hair toward the bitter side of balance. Bittersweet, tongue-numbing finish. Growler generously shared by ctipping!
