If you have the cash to make this happen just do it man!! This is a wonderful double IPA. It is hoppy and not bitter, very smooth going down not too heavy. HF is in the same class as Sixpoint Resin and Stone’s IPA’s so it is top notch baby!

Madsen1635 (430) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 26, 2015
Bottle. Hazy dark reddish pour with tan head. Aroma has brown sugar, burnt malt and feels strong. Taste has a lot of sweetness and this seems to take the focus almost completely off the hops. Lots of caramel. Very sweet

BeerBunker (923) - Burbank, Illinois, USA - JUN 7, 2015
22oz bottle. Pours amber with a big tan head. Aroma is of hops pine, caramel, and earth. Taste is of earthy hops, pine, and floral notes. Has a caramel malt back bone. Lingering sweet hop taste. Mouthfeel is light and sticky. Body is light, and it drinks very easy. Very slight alcohol bite. It’s not overly hoppy, so it goes down very easy. Good.

24.1.2014. Tuoksu hieman tunkkainen mutta hedelmäinen. Maku täyteläinen, hieman sitruksinen, humalainen.

Dry earthy bitter finish that leans away from citrus toward pine and bitterness. Big and boozy. Didn’t like this as much as Gangster Frog.

Deep amber with a tan head. Hints of grapefruit and caramel. Very hoppy with a bitterness that lasts through the finish. Almost a strong ale in flavor.

Aromas of pine and citrus pours a deep amber almost orange. Thin white head that disappears quickly. Nice malt back bone but he hop flavors are off. Not balanced. You get some of the bitterness from the malt , tastes toasty almost a burnt malt after taste.

Why is this beer so expensive? What does HF put in their beer to make it worth $10 a bomber. Taste has age and malt that shouldn’t be in an iipa. Not terrible or sour, just way overpriced.

Rhoooo! On dirait du "Miel IPA", en tout cas c’est ce qui décrit le mieux cette bière. La Nez sent plus le miel, le biscuit et le vin rouge que la bière. La bouche est caramel, miel avec une amerume agréable. Une très bonne bière!!
