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.

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.

2L growler shared by Julien. Pours a beautiful slightly hazy blond with a decent creamy head. Aroma is danky hops, onions, citrus and pine. Taste is juicy citrusy hops, bready malts and light pine. A more important bready malts presence makes this one more quaffable than the averqage S&S. A huge success.

Growler poured into teku glass. Hazy goldenrod color with thick white head that leaves nice laceing. Aroma is mandarin oranges, grapefruit rind, light lemon and cheesiness. Taste is dry and sharply bitter finish. Flavor comes off like citrus fruit salad and citrus zest. Great beer. Oh how I missed fresh hf pales.

Growler thanks to Will. Pours a cloudy yellow orange with thick white head that lasts. The aroma is strong pine and citrus. Medium mouth with nice dry hop bite, citrus, nice light bitterness, juicy, very impressive.

2L growler, 2 days after visiting the brewery. Hazy glowing yello pour with lacy white head. Aroma is really nice and dank, light onion, great dank piney simoce, light citrusy grapefruit and lemon notes. Taste is lightly bitter, dank hop flavor, pure hop juice. Palate is med bodied with light carbonation, realllly tasty, damn this stuff is good.

Zekada (181) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - OCT 11, 2014
Tap at Mikkeller & Friends. Smell is very hoppy and has some notes of grass and hay. Pours pale orange with a small white head. Taste is a fresh sensation of hops, citrus and fresh fruits. Palate is light and fresh on the tongue. Overall a great solid DIPA which is highly recommended.

Leighton (11431) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 17, 2014
Growler from the brewery - shared with Team London at Zwanze Day 2014 at The Kernel. Pours unclear gold with a creamy, white head. The nose is loaded with melon and tangerine, some pale bread, pissy hops. Medium sweet flavor with buckets more juicy citrus fruits, prominent tangerine, candied orange, lightly pithy grapefruit, melon. Medium to full bodied with fine carbonation and graceful texture. Lightly oily and resinous on the finish, pretty sweet with low bitterness, more fruity hops, juicy tangerine, ripe orange. Superb balance, great depth. Excellent.

cpetrone84 (1456) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 28, 2014
Pour is dark amber, very hazy, lots of white head with a thicker lace. Nose has some fresh cut grain, light pale malt and a touch of sticky caramel. Hops are a bit soapy first, then a very strong grapefruit rind, almost a sweaty grapefruit. Taste is a bit sweeter, lots of fresh grains up front, a fairly moderate malt presence, huge tropical hop punch. Still some grapefruit rind mid to late palate, some mangos and a touch of pineapple. Body is incredibly light and delicate, very nicely carbonated, just a clean crisp and slightly dry finish.
