From the tap at the Mad Taco in Waitsfield, VT - beautiful slightly hazy golden color with a warm, white head of small bubbles that sticks around. Light grapefruit/citrus over hops aroma carried by a good carbonation. Flavor kicks off with a bright bitter note, and but mellows out to a softer, deliciously slightly salty aftertaste. Creamy body buoyed by a light carbonation. This is a very versatile, drinkable beer - no special occasion needed.

On tap, Threepenny Taproom, Montpelier. Appearance is great - rich golden. Aroma is strong Mosaic hop, resin in the mix to the max. Taste is disappointing - bit thin for a dipa. Hop flavours are here but they don’t linger in the way I look for. Fruitiness just doesn’t burst out, which may be more down to the Mosaic hop foremost. Quite sessional. Bit of a bite on the finish. Don’t love this quite as much as the other Vermont doubles, but appreciate the sessionability

Boutip (4494) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 28, 2014
Growler: Poured a hazy blonde color ale with a nice foamy head with good retention and light lacing. Aroma of tropical fruit is quite powerful with some nice apricot notes. Taste is also dominated by some huge notes of tropical fruit with some nice apricot notes with also some nice citrus notes. Body is full enough for style with good carbonation. Dominant floral hoppy notes makes for this a great treat.

On tap at Blackback pub on 3/22/14. Pours a hazy straw with a loose white head with large bubbles. Leaves a little spotty lacing. Nose is fruity, citrus. Taste is bright, fresh, peppery, nice hop bitterness, grapefruit. Great balance. Top notch beer

Marheb (1750) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 17, 2014
Une superposition de jus de fruits tropicaux qui m’émeu à chaque gorgée. Une résine verdoyante s’invite graduellement au ruissellement et disparaît dans une belle et franche amertume. Buvabilté intimidante.

Marsiblursi (2983) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 15, 2014
(Bottle) Pours hazy yellow-ish orange with a white head. The aroma is fantastic - bright and juicy with notes of pink grapefruit, melon, peach, strawberries, diesel and some new cut grass. Wow. The malt is tight on the nose with crackers and a touch of white bread. The flavour is light sweet to dry, medium bitter and tiny acidic with notes of tropical fruits, diesel and some green-ish tones. perfect malt profile. The mouthfeel is soft and almost creamy a light to medium carbonation. Medium afterbitterness. Light to medium bodied.

Fliptop growler received in trade. Thank you AdamJackson! Bottle filled 10 days ago and stored in fridge while not traveling. No leakage detected. Pours vibrant hazy and sparkling orangish yellow with a rather small frothy white head that leaves some sticky lacing and trace on the glass while slowly dissipating. Smell is very fruity, tiny earth, slightly herbal and bursting with fresh hop aroma with crackers, pink grapefruit juice, freshly cut grass, lemon grass, pine needles, water melon rinds, pineapple, passionfruit, honeydew melon, almost overripe mango and hints of diesel fuel, alcohol and chives. Taste is tiny sweet, slightly bitter, fruity and herbal with crackers, fresh white bread, pink grapefruit juice, freshly cut grass, pineapple, mango, grapefruit rinds, watermelon rinds, diesel fuel, lemon zest, orange zest and hints of alcohol and chives. Mouthfeel is round, slightly dry, slightly astringent, tiny boozy and medium to full bodied. Finish is bitter and fruity with crackers, pink grapefruit juice, honeydew melon, watermelon rinds, orange zest, lemon zest, freshly cut grass, pine needles, lemon grass, pineapple, mango and hints of alcohol. The chives and diesel disappear almost completely as the beer warms. Very very tasty fruity IIPA. Top notch stuff!

Lubiere (9438) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 14, 2014
A hazed blonde DIPA with a thin white head. In aroma, beautiful citrusy pulp and floral hops, biscuit malt, very nice yet simple. In mouth, a good grapefruit pulp and biscuit malt, floral and citrusy hops, smooth and quaffable. Growler from Ian Guenard.

WillRunForBeer (418) - Massachusetts, USA - MAR 14, 2014
Taster at the source. Pours orange yellow gold with a big clingy white head. Aroma is slight cereal, pineapple, mango. Very light and easy drinking for a double ipa with pineapple, mango citrus. Finish goes from sweet pineapple to bitter grapefruit.

Pours like the rest of HFS' golden children, cloudy golden orange with a fluffy white head. Melon pineapple and citrus zest on nose. In taste this is fruitier than some of their other undertakings, a little less subtle on that front but still so good. Cantaloupe and passionfruit taste, tropical rather than their "go-to" citrus or lemon. Super tasty ---Rated via Beer Buddy
