On-tap in my kitchen.

Pours a mirky orange/yellow color, white frothy head, super-sticky lacing, thick ring, and thin cap. Nose is mango-forward, tropical, smooth hops, grass, light pine...really well-balanced and smooth. Flavor is lots of mango, pineapple, hops, grassy...perfect balance of hoppy bitterness and sweetness. Body is light to medium, good carbonation, oily finish.

It’s hard to think of another DIPA I would rather drink more of in one session. The alcohol is well-hidden, it’s very-well balanced, and the flavor profile is simply right-on. I have to say, my other favorite easy-drinking DIPA is Heady Topper, and this is superior.

Growler @ 5 Kay, 7.5 Kay, 10 Kay Tasting. Thanks to Leighton! Hazy gold with a small white head. The nose is fantastic. Bright and nuanced. Jasmine tea and mandarin orange. Honey comb and beeswax. Some tropical fruits, mango smoothie. Taste has some citrus fruit character, grapefruit and oranges. Modest cake-like sweetness. Growing leafy green bitterness on the finish. Some musty peach skin. Light and zippy. Drinks below its ABV. Very good.

Growler shared at the 5K/7.5K/10K tasting - who the shitshines has a 7.5K tasting anyway? big thanks to once again to that man Leighton for more HF goodness, 30/12/14. Hazed orange amber with a decent off white covering that dissipates then retains. Nose is juicy citrics, pine, straw, tangerine, mandarin, fresh grass. Taste comprises tangerine, pine needle, orange pith, grassy, light grapefruit. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with a balanced level of hop bitterness. Crushable stuff, drinks well below the ABV, solid hop jus. I can normally pick out Mosaic easily but didn’t do so here.

Growler. Milky golden yellow pour with a white head. Fruity hop aromas. Delicious with bitter hop notes and tropical fruit backbeats. Nice malty presence to keep her in check. Really good mouthfeel. Good body. Bravo!!!

5 Kay, 7.5 Kay, 10 Kay Tasting. Big thanks to Leighton. Light haze on this pale gold beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is smooth and light with decent fine carbonation. Smooth light pale malts, mild creamy sweetness. Nice mellow hop skunk, light pine and decent hop spice. Mild tropical fruits underneath. Light smooth finish with a mild bitter linger. Very smooth and well joined up.

Growler shared by Clint. Nose is super danky and earthy. Lightly grainy. Taste is initially bitter then a smooth hoppy flavor. Earthy, slightly mineral. Really good but not mind blowing. I prefer mosaic showers.

From a growler, 3 days old. Pours a slightly hazy straw blonde, with a fluffy white head. Aromas of pine needles, lime, citrus and fruit salad. Medium body, fluffy mouthfeel, super fruit salad flavors, spiciness from the hops, almost peppery. Superbe double IPA. Hats off!
