3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dégustée en compagnie de Christian. Liquide aux allures vives, nobles et fières. Tête chargée et persistante. Un nez qui révèle des notes plus herbacées que fruitées. Lourdement chargée en houblons floraux et verts, cette bière me paraît différente de ce que j’ai l’habitude de déguster chez Shaun et ça me plaît. Liquide qui au palais me plaît plus ou moins. Le liquide est un peu plat, juteux et sans vigueur. Laiteux? Bien florale, ces herbes sont accompagnées d’une subtile touche de résine assez plaisante sans être collante. Longueur moyenne et bien amère en finale, cette bière se boit bien mais ne m’enchante pas.

Growler thanks to Caleb! Pours quite hazy orange, large creamy off-white head, dissipates slowly leaving lots of clumpy residual and lacing. Aroma is light overall, pine, mango, stonefruit, light green tea, peach. Flavor is light plus sweet, medium bitter, juicy and piney, hints of green tea as well. Full body, soft silky mouthfeel. Lingering bitterness.

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
This was poured into a snifter served at The Reservoir.
The appearance was a thick ruddy grapefruit rind color with a slim bar pour’s kind of head that barely left any lacing.
The smell was a wonderful combination of the grapefruit pulp and orange pulp. Slight mango and papayas slide in underneath.
The taste was mainly bittersweet fully combined. Really tasted like I was drinking my morning orange / grapefruit juice. Awesome smooth transition from aftertaste to finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a fairly decent sipping to sessionable quality about it. Carbonation seemed pretty good as the bittersweetness really impounds my tongue in an awesome manner.
Overall, not sure why I’m seeing lower ratings from everyone else but I loved this one. HF knocked it out of the park!

From growler. Pours hazy blonde topped by a thick white head that fades into a thin veil. Piny, citrus and a bit of alcohol / esters make for the aromas. Light to medium body, superb Simcoe profile on the palate with a slightly green finish. Solid, as always.
