Growler from the brewer shared at the Nov. 2015 Monticello Dairy tasting. Hazy orange, large foamy off-white head, good retention. Aroma of grapefruit zest, tropical fruit, pale malt, mild lemongrass. The taste is tropical fruits, yuzu, grapefruit, dank hops, pale malt. Medium bodied, well balanced.

DuffMan (9755) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 23, 2015
Growler, from JulienHuxley (thanks!). This was consumed the day I got it, Im just way behind on my ratings. From notes: translucent/hazy orange-kissed gold with a thick off white head that leaves gobs of lace. Massive hop character of fresh tropical fruits with underlying pine and grass notes. The malts here are very restrained (in typical HF fashion), and the fresh hops really shine. The most gulpable DIPA Ive ever had, and a terrific hop shocase for Galaxy.

Garrold (4651) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 21, 2015
From a growler, picked up at the brewery. Pretty murky, dark straw colour. Clingy, lasting, white head, that cant make its mind up whether its bubbly or filmy. Looks great, anyway. Beautifully fresh, tropical fruit on the nose. Missus says it smells like Lilt. I get some mango and pineapple. Some vanilla malts, but theyre secondary to the hops. Taste has grapefruit pith bitterness. Traces of the vanilla malts. Airy, soft mouthfeel. Ridiculously drinkable. No trace of the ABV. Finishes moderately long, pithy bitter, with a soft, rounding sweetness. Stunning.

ctipping (1606) - Florida, USA - NOV 10, 2015
750 mL growler. Very hazy orange body. Light wisps on the surface. Clings a little bit. Buckets of hops. Excellent citrus hop smell but it still manages to have a grainy malt presence. Sweet hoppy nectar. Juicy citrus hop flavor. Orange and grapefruit flavors. Nice sweet flavor behind it. Very monotonic, but deliciously so. Grainy malt and the sweetness drops off. Medium body. Medium carbonation. Clean and just a little heavy. One hop makes it a bit one-note, but the flavor is excellent. Definitely a top IPA.

_angst_ (4654) - Gteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 1, 2015
Growler received in trade. Pours very hazy tiny burnt yellow with a frothy white head that leaves some spotty trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is heavy fruity and slightly grassy with crackers, white bread, pink grapefruit juice, mango, pineapple, passion fruit, star fruit, rose hips, freshly cut grass, pine needles, minerals and lemon zest. Taste is sweet, bitter, fruity and grassy. Mouthfeel is round, slightly astringent, tiny boozy and medium bodied. Finish is tiny sweet and bitter with crackers, white bread, grapefruit juice, mango, pineapple, passion fruit, freshly cut grass, pine needles, lemon zest and hints of alcohol. Very prominent DIPA character with sweetness and hints of alcohol. Nicely fruity galaxy character.
