Growler from imstilltheGman... Murkey, cloudy pour.....looks like a wheat ale???? Small head that faded quickly. Nose of grapefruit.... Taste is fruity... tons of grapefruit. Kind of one dimensional. But still not bad. Medium to full body...Alcohol is hidden well.. Super smooth.... Overall: Good stuff

Draft at three penny. Poured cloudy and orange with a foamy white head. Aromas of tons of tropical and citrus fruit with resin. Flavor of peach, mango, grapefruit, and orange. Really good. Medium body and sticky texture. Carbonation was good and a smooth finish with a bit of dryness. Amazing.

simont1 (416) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 12, 2015
Pours hazy. Aroma of peach, grapefruit and resin, light lemon, very straight up citrus. Taste is lightly earthy with some resin inputs, very easy going and drinkable, ever so lightly tart.

RRistow12 (434) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - JUL 4, 2015
Tasted from draft. Pours a super cloudy pale orange with thick white head. Tons of lacing. Aroma is big time tropical fruit. Notes of mango, passion fruit, pineapple and orange. Taste is incredibly well balanced. Mild to moderate bitterness with malt backbone. Really no bitter bite at all. I really think non IPA drinkers would love it. Creamy and smooth mouthfeel with no hint of alcohol. Flavors of oranges, grapefruit, passion fruit, mango, pine, biscuit sweetness. Incredible IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Swing-top growler from Greg. What an awesome surprise! Cloudy pale orange with white froth. Nose is orange, pine and grass with hints of cat. Medium body, resiny with a soft tingle. Taste is citrus peel, toffee, grapefruit, funky pine and lemon candies. Rindy goodness.

BMMillsy (1756) - Florida, USA - JUN 9, 2015
UPDATED: JUN 19, 2015 Growler from the brewery. Pours cloudy yellow with a big creamy white head that just sticks all over the glass. Aroma of grapefruits, pineapples, mangoes, some pine and grass, really nice. Flavor is off the hook. Lots of bitterness here, but it gets your palate ready for the sweet pineapple and mango, along with lots of citrus fruits, and then a final kick of bitter dry pine. Finishes clean as can be (no surprise there for HF). Body is relatively light for a DIPA, but creamy with nice sweet malt backing. Goes down way too easy. This is fantastic.

Growler at home. Apperance is hazy yellow with a small head. Aroma is citurs, Grape, hops. lots of tropical fruit. Taste is crisp bitterness, citrus, a bit malty, but still a very good feel. Unfortounly the growler had popped, but this was still amazing. very light carbonation due to the popping..
