3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Fool’s Gold, 12/5/15. Murky yellowish color with a decent amount of lace. Lemon/citrus, a bit of spice, done herbal notes as well. Fairly dry but with a decent balancing act from the spice and light sweetness. Quite tasty, though not quite as good as what they usually do with this style.

750 mL growler . Originally reviewed 6/12/2013.
Very hazy golden orange. Small white head that lingers. Thin layer of foam rests atop the beer.
Bright citrus hop aroma. Grainy malt. Mostly hops.
Strong citrus hop flavor. Grapefruit and slightly tropical flavor. Grains behind it with almost no sweetness. The slightest hop bitterness. Oily hop flavor lingers on the palate
Light bodied and quite drinkable. Medium carbonation.
Another great pale. Very tasty, clean, and drinkable as hell.

Draft at Reservoir. Poured a bright yellow, fairly clear, foamy white head. Aroma of tropical fruits, grassy, herbal, slight floral hints. Flavor had some mango, lemon, grass, and herbal. Light body and slick texture to it. Bubbly carbonation and really smooth and slick finish. Another hoppy hit from HF.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml 3 days old growler from the brewery. Aroma: tropical fruits, grassy hops. App: hazy golden with thick white head and good retention considering this is 3 days old. And also leaving lacing. Taste and palate: fruity and herbacy in mouth, resinous, dry medium bitter finish. Overall: great. Pretty much the same as their other IPA’s but more clean and less hoppy.

This beer is the definition of focus. Pale yellow pour, large head, good retention, amazing aroma of citrus and Amazonian tree fruit. Taste is dry and lightly bitter. Flavors of deep tropical fruit, citrus. Amazing does not begin to describe it. Finished dry. Mind = blown.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Abbye in Worcester. Basically the same beer as Susan, but with fewer hops. Bartender gave me and a buddy both beers together and asked us to pick which one was which. Only difference was Susan was hoppier. Really good beer though.
