4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at brewery. Hazy orange gold, with light head, good lacing. Aromas and flavor are very skunky, grassy, bitter, and rindy. Liked it but not nearly as good as most of the other societies. A little boozey and slightly sticky sweet in finish. Lacks the minerality I wanted. Lots of simcoe in this one. Medium body. Solid but I was expecting a lot more.

Growler, thanks Colin and family - picked up last Wednesday, herein Russell today :). Classic hazy yellow, small foamy head. Strong, yeasty, citrusy hops. Lovely. Taste - wow, kind of the typical HF dry yeasty citrusy taste, but then it kicks it way up with a huge orange zest and a bit of grapefruit kick - not a hop monster, just intensely flavourful. Wow, my favourite HF so far. Stunning. So good.
