PapaSkeetSkeet (1284) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - JAN 19, 2020
UPDATED: JAN 19, 2020 Growler from the Brewery. Very cloudy creamsicle with frothy white head. Medium-good retention. Aroma is some orange and dank onion, bit of gunpowder, chalk, bit of dried banana and pineapple. Body is medium weight, oily- but starchy and soft. Silky mouthfeel. Flavor is grapefruit, unrobe orange, onion tops, bit of grass and very low bitterness, hint of bubble gum. Hint of keffir lime leaf. Very good - defines itself w it’s mouthfeel and maybe that bit if gunpowder in the aroma. Still, hard to believe it’s worth the hype. mansquito (10859) - Nueva York, New York, USA - OCT 12, 2019
UPDATED: OCT 12, 2019 Growler from Chris for bottleshare: pours lightly hazy orange with a white head. Aroma is dank fruitiness, some pine. Taste is pretty sweet, some underlying bitterness. Slight bitter aftertaste. Very ripe tasting. Large. trapped (6005) - New York, TURKEY - OCT 8, 2019
UPDATED: OCT 8, 2019 Draught @ City Hops (10/2/19). Extremely hazy rich yellow-orange with small foamy whitish head, faint citrus aroma, low carbonation, medium bitter citrus-mango-pineapple taste, faint alcohol undertones, smooth thin body, long medium bitter finish. Very well covered ABV, smooth and tasty. explosivedog (5302) - New York, New York, USA - OCT 5, 2019
UPDATED: OCT 5, 2019 On tap at the Jeffrey. Pours hazy bright yellow. Peach, nectarine, lemon, grapefruit, pine, orange, tangerine, lovely mineral balance with a slight bitterness at the end. Good body. Very nice. HippyHop (1187) - Quebec, CANADA - AUG 18, 2019
UPDATED: AUG 18, 2019 Growler from the brewery. This might be the highest rating I've ever given a beer. Beautiful hazy gold pour with a thick pillowy cap that leaves unbelievable lace and blooms with the slightest swirl. This beer is so fucking pretty. Nose is juicy gold: tangerine and grapefruit juice and rind, pine and cedar, dank undertones, subtle ripe tropical fruit, honey and icing sugar, and that patented HF ale yeast. Taste is just so smooth, so balanced. Chewy malt, creamy texture. The balance between booze and bitterness is just perfect. This is the second beer I've ever given 5/5 for palate. Finish is a touch resinous, a touch bitter, a touch of alcohol warmth. There is nothing out of place with this beer. It's not as juicy/tropical as the Double Galaxy but I think this one is even smoother, if possible. Not sure I could have picked a better beer for my 1000th rating.

UPDATED: JUL 22, 2019 Growler from brewery. Pours hazy yellow lots of head and lacing. Notes of grapefruit, honey, citrus. Medium juicy bitter. Full creamy body lively carbonation. tfontana (2558) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 16, 2019
UPDATED: MAY 16, 2019 Tap pour into goblet from The Dive Bar, Worcester. Appearance is cloudy orange with finger-width white foamy head with excellent retention and soapy lacing. Aroma is mix of grapefruit and citrus fruit. Taste is nonspecific fruity--hard to place--like a grapey, yogurty, fruit salad. Not tropical. Palate is light-to-medium bodied with smooth texture, soft-to-average carbonation and crisp finish as taste. Overall, pretty strong aroma and flavor but not terribly complex and fairly indistinct. Enjoyed it but falls short of a classic for me. NikkTwist (4760) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 17, 2019
UPDATED: APR 17, 2019 Draft at Bru Craft. Cloudy orange pour with soft soapy white foam. Rows of lace. Full, juicy tropical fruits and mossy pinecones. Mango. Pineapple. Passionfruit. Apricot. Kumquat. Dandelion. Cut grass. Dank. Nicely balanced and thirst quenching. tiong (11423) - Espoo, FINLAND - JAN 29, 2019
UPDATED: JAN 29, 2019 Draught @ Armsby Abbey, Worcester, MA. Smooth, super juicy fruity and hoppy with some tropical notes, pine, floral notes, citrus and grass. Great, another super well balanced DIPA from HF. VastActiv (11248) - Oulu/Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 29, 2019
UPDATED: JAN 29, 2019 Tap at Armsby Abbey, Worcester. Color is very cloudy golden with small white head. Aromas and flavors: Fruits, tropical fruits, hops and malts. Surprisingly light but pretty drinkable.
