hopscotch (8902) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 18, 2014
Growler... Hazy yellow pour with a small, creamy, white head. The aroma offers a melding of grapefruit, passionfruit and spicy, peppery hops. Full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and vibrant carbonation. Excellent bitterness and breadiness in the flavor - rindy, tannic hops upheld by a fragile, cracker malt foundation. Crisp, bitter finish. Bottle courtesy of the one and only, ever-generous landhoney!

yourefragile (138) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - APR 10, 2014
On tap at HF, growler shared by Starr, thanks. Pours a dark hazed golden orange with a dense white head with sticky lacing. Sweet throughout, over ripe pineapple and mango with a pine and grass bitter finish. Not my favorite of the SS series.

alexsdad06 (5340) - Ohio, USA - DEC 22, 2013
750 ml flip top on a couple occasions. Pours a hazy golden color with a small white head. The aroma and flavor have grapefruit citrus, some tropical notes and big catty hops (especially in the nose). The flavor shows much more balance with the malts standing up to the grapefruit, earthy and catty hops. Solid bitterness to the finish. Another solid beer from HF.

750 growler pour shared by alexsdad06. Light golden. Nose pine mango fruit hop. Taste grapefruit bite up front. Floral hop and some fruit hop. Mid palate sweet and very pleasing bitter finish. Really nice, exceptionally clean flavors.

apotekhin (49) - ISRAEL - OCT 13, 2013
Strong aroma - but not as strong as other DIPA. Sweet and and smooth with grassy flavor. Caramel and malt flavor, very rich and full body with a semi dry bitter finish. Not a huge fan of the style but that was perfect.

Treebs (872) - , Illinois, USA - SEP 29, 2013
2L growler served in a HF becher glass. Huge thanks to kevanb for the share. A: Pours a semi-clear golden yellow color with a nice one finger thick white head forming on the pour. It recedes to a thick cap that leaves sticky sheets of lace down the glass. S: Sweet malts with a nice grassy undertone. Nice berry bit with a tropical fruitiness to it. T: Wow, what a fruit explosion. Just simcoe and amarillo? Tons of mango, pear and lemon peel with a light grassy bitterness. Biscuit malt sweetness to round it all out. Really nice. M: Light bodied with a nice, medium carbonation level. Sweet and fruity finish. O: Super fruity and delicious. I really enjoyed this one and being a big fan of Amarillo really put this one in my wheelhouse. Serving type: growler 09-06-2013

Westmeister (1699) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - SEP 21, 2013
Poured from 750 growler @ Ale Alpharetta. Golden pour with medium white head that appeared to lose a bit of carb from the growler fill. Big citrus hops with a minimal malt backing. Taste was 80/20 hops to malt in the form of citrus, pine. Damn good. We had another double ipa after this that just tasted like a malt bomb. All glorious hops with just the right amount of sweet malt backing. Really nice oily body.

joeneugs (3120) - Livermore, California, USA - SEP 12, 2013
Growler from the brewery about three weeks old. It pours a nice bright golden color with a big off white head. The aroma is bright tropical fruit, florals and citrus. The flavor is very creamy for a IIPA with lots of citrus, grass and florals. Full bodied but not sweet or heavy. Very nice as usual.

mathieuc (1183) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 30, 2013
On tap at Parker Pie. Pours a "murky" yellow with a lot of floaters (looked a lot like some pulpy orange juice). Aroma is really nice and full of grapefruits and various other tropical fruits. Taste is minimally sweet with a lot of mangoes shining. There is also some dank hops to be felt. Medium bodied, medium carbonation. It feels lighter than that though and ultra drinkable. Overall a really nice and refreshing (?) DIPA, a superior one for sure!
