Hazy burnt orange-gold color, frothy off-white head. Orange, grapefruit, a little mango and peach, citrus zest. A bit more bitter than bittersweet. Fairly dry, light bodied, and lightly carbed. Long, bitter, and somewhat astringent finish. HonusWagner (2250) - Florida, USA - AUG 11, 2017
Hey, an IPA, with bitterness, in 2017, would you look at that? It’s got a bit too much of that Simcoe/Amarillo piss forest thing to really be my jam, but it’s still as clean as you’d expect a Hill IPA to be. 50belair (3718) - Florida, USA - AUG 6, 2017
Can. Hazy yellow pour with a white head. Citrusy hop nose. So clean, with tasty citrus, grapefruit, and mango hop highlights. Perfectly balanced with a zing from the hops but a sturdy caramel malt backbone. Really good body and mouthfeel. Bravo.... ctipping (2299) - Florida, USA - JUL 25, 2017
750 mL growler. Hazy orange. Smells of tangerine and a little resin. Tastes of grapefruit, bright tangerine, a little garlic. Pungent hop profile. Slight sweet pale malt and some grain. Moderate grapefruit bitterness. Medium body. Soft carbonation. It’s a pungent and flavorful IPA, without every being abrasive. Delicious.

From a can at the brewery. One of my favorite hf hoppy offerings. Aroma is soft melon, grapefruit, tangerine, grass, and a touch floral. Taste is soft with a touch of bitter maybe and mostly just soft drinkable and delicate. Love it.

750ml growler poured into a Other Half pint like glass.
A~ orange/copper creamsicle colored, nice big fluffy head and a ton of lacing.
S~ earthy up front with grass and sticks. rushing in with some burnt oranges and other citrus maybe guava and papaya. hmm...
T~ follows the nose for the most part. citrus fruit up front with more grapefruit here followed by a rush of bitter earth/woodyness. the burnt orange still lingers.
M~ really nice feel, juicy, creamy, nice carb and smoooooth!
O~ another very nice IPA! definitely more bitter than most of their IPA’s but if thats your sort of thing you’ll love this! more of a west coast ipa meets new england style hybrid. mmm....! bytemesis (9622) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JUL 20, 2017
Can. Pours cloudy golden, large white head, creamy, great lacing. Aroma is dank, tropical, grassy, Grapefruit, pine. Flavor is light sweet, light bitter. Medium body, soft mouthfeel. tom10101 (6315) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 16, 2017
Growler (750 ml) at home, split 2-ways. Thanks to Carine and Dominic for this one! Cloudy orangey with a frothy white head, good retention, leaving nice lacing. Aroma is of juicy tropical fruits, dank hops, herbal notes and mild spiciness. Taste is also quite juicy with a wide array of fruits including oranges, mangoes, grapefruits, clementine, melon and even hints of pineapples along dank hops, lean moderately spicy malt base, grassy notes and mild bitterness. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Juicy mouthfeel. Oranges and grassy finish, rather dry. Another pretty good IPA from HF. The grassy finish is a bit sticky and prevent this one from being among the best HF IPAs but it’s a world-class one nonetheless and it’s really easy drinking.
