ksurkin (1021) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - DEC 25, 2012
750ml growler courtesy of a great BA trader. the pour is an incredibly bright but hazy peach color capped by a fluffy, rocky white head that leaves dense sheets of lace. aroma is incredible, one of the best i’ve ever experienced, with massive, tropical, citra hop notes of pineapple, tangerine, apricot, and mango backed by white grapefruit, dense pine, and lime peels with subtle hints of honey covered biscuits and vanilla as it opens up, flavor is damn near perfect as well with a blast of juicy tangerines, grapefruit, and nectarines up front with sweet pineapple, papaya, and stonefruit through the middle before finishing with rush of resinous pine, herbal bitterness, and wet grass. palate is immensely drinkable with a light body and perfect carbonation and that combination of juicy citrus and resiny bitterness that i love. overall, a truly world class ipa and perhaps the best i’ve had from HF.

Growler fill at the brewery 03/27/15. Pours hazy yellow golden grapefruit color small white head. Aroma is strong pineapple, mango, tropical fruits, light malt backbone, resin . Flavor is piney, resinous, hop bitterness, tropical fruits. Very good. Exceptional IPA, but not as balanced as I expected.

Franckg (291) - Quebec, CANADA - MAR 28, 2015
Robe orange foncée, très trouble. Un généreux col de mousse se forme et se dissipe tranquillement pour ne laisser qu’un mince voile. Très fines bulles, effervescence moyenne et généreuse dentelle. Les arômes sont envoutantes. Très frais, orange, mandarine, pamplemousse gorgé de sucre. Un petit côté résineux tente de faire sa place aux milieu de ce cocktail tropical. En bouche, tout aussi sublime. Les saveurs fruitées des arômes prennent le dessus rapidement pour envelopper le palais de leur amertume et exotisme. La finale, plus amère, ouvre la porte à des effluves rappelant les grains de céréales. Le liquide est frais, léger, goûteux et on a encore une fois ce sentiment de regret de ne pas en avoir acheté d’autres, comme c’est souvent le cas avec les produits de HF.

From the growler. Beautiful looking beer. Aroma is a citrus hop explosion....all the orange and yellow fruits, with some bready yeast. Taste is lemon zest, orange peel, berries, little grass, and pine. Somewhat bitter finish, not overpowering, light mouthful, sticky, and dry. World class. Yum!

On tap at three penny. Pours hazy golden orange, hazy, thin white head that leaves a pinch of retention. Very pine forward, some citrus, light bitterness begins the sip but grows quite large through finish. Body is light to medium with a long drying finish.

Growler, pours is cloudy pale orange, aroma is citrus, melon, and grassy pine. Taste is perfectly balanced and a dry bitter finish, probably my favorite HF IPA so far.

mathieuc (1815) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 14, 2015
Pours a really cloudy yellow, almost murky, with a small white head that leaves nice lacing. Nose is of oranges, pine and slight alcohol. Taste is of soft wheat, oranges and moderately bitter. Nice cereal profile, makes it really smooth and easy drinking. Body is medium, carbonation as well and it is lightly sticky. Bitterness lingers for a good duration. Sunshine in a glass!

Can at Drunken Driver’s Tasting @ tderoeck’s place. Thanks guys. Thanks alot to Adam for driving all the way over to let us taste some fresh IPA. CLoudy yellow, dark yellow. Piney, hopey, bitter. Everything an IPA should be. And as Tim said it, this is what you crave for when dreaming about a really good IPA.
