Growler shared by Ed, huge thanks man! Pours out a lightly cloudy golden color with a small off white head. Aroma is of juicy citrus fruits, light tropical notes, pine hops and some soft light bread. Taste is super complex, what a great hop profile, tropical fruits, rich citrusy fruits, pine, more tropical notes, a nice bite of bitterness to go along with the hop flavors and some lightly mild bready notes for slight balance, but this one is all about the hops and rightly so, great IPA.

750ml bomber shared y jsprime. hazed light orange with a white head. subtle but complex hop nose, really well hopped. the flavour is hop forward with a lean malt body. very dry and insanely little fermentation character. great IPA

UPDATED: OCT 16, 2013 32oz Cigar City growler. Pours a cloudy light orange color with thin foamy white head. Aroma of mango, pineapple, papaya, and passion fruit. Just really delicious and tropical. Taste of pineapple, bitter grapefruit, citrus zest, and light bready malt.

Beautiful bouquet of hops caresses your sense smell upon opening the growler and becomes more pleasant as it pours. Fantastic IPA.

10/13/13. Growler thanks to ZMDR1975. Orange pour with a nice khaki head that lasts and laces plenty. Nice aroma, lots of citrus, some tropical aspects, resin, pine, and a hint of diesely onion. Nice flavor, good bitterness, not overwhelming, lots of fresh hoppy goodness - citrus, tropical, and more. Tasty stuff.

Caramel hop and honey aroma. Sweet and hoppy flavor with some caramel and pineapple. Rich fully body with a grassy bittersweet finish. Perfect IPA, not too happy, but rich, fresh and crisp.

Growler shared by the one and only Ed5388, sort of wondering if he is the one and only what happened to the 1st 5387 Eds???
Poured a hazed golden body under an average foamy white head. Aroma is NICE, notes of fresher hops, citrus rind, yellow grapefruits, some ddry pine needles, toast, bread crusts. Medium bodied with that classic delicate mouthfeel that most HF brews have and small bubbly carbonation. Flavor of dry citrus, toast, dry grassy hops, lemon and dried out lemon zest. This is just a solid solid IPA.
