ekoerper (599) - Iowa, USA - NOV 19, 2012
Aroma: lots of juicy grapefruit and tropical fruit, floral hops, some resin and pine. Some light malts, toast, and honey linger in the background. Pours a hazy straw/yellow color, white head with good retention and lacing. Amazing hop profile - tons of citrus, mango, and some pineapple. Sticky resin and some orange as well, and a pleasant malt presence backing up the hops. Just enough cereal grains and a touch of honey to slightly tame the hops. Bitterness is medium-high, but well controlled and no astringent finish. Light-medium body, medium carbonation, smooth and dry finish. Wow, an excellent brew!

Draught @ The Jeffrey. Hazy, almost millky beight yellow with small frothy whitish head, very faint dusty citrus peel aroma, medium carbonation, lightly bitter taste with pineaple, and bit of grapefruit, smooth body, longish medium bitter finish. Very very smooth and deceptively easy to drink.

*8/16/2013 750ml growler poured into a Hill Farmstead oversized wine glass. A~ crazy glowing light yellowy orange that gets lighter towards the bottom of the glass. big fluffy white head with a ton of lacing. S~ a lot of natural earth and grass. some citrus notes, grapefruit, mango, lemon, lime, etc... all followed by a lot of hop presence. T~ follows the nose with way more earthy pine bitterness that over takes your pallet leaving behind the juiciest tropical blend that seems to linger into a... run on sentence hahaha! (into a...) delicious, mellow, all around perfect IPA. M~ as smooth as could be. extremely nice carbonation and very refreshing. great summer brew! O~ might be my favorite of the "regular" IPA S&S series, the black IPA comes first for me though! if you’re in a happy, hoppy mood you can’t get any better than this. i’m gonna call it a fruit beer/IPA lovers dream.

Odd aroma w/ a cool pale gold pour. It’s not overly bitter. Decent overall!

Probably could give this a perfect rating. Nothing wrong with it. Orange cloudy draft pour at Prohibition Pig. Juicy citrus aroma. Taste is juicy citrus perfection.

750ml growler @ Alex’s. Pours a cloudy golden colour with a thin white head. Nose is sweet, fruity, with some dank hop notes. Flavour is pithy, tongue tingling pith bitterness, while fruit and mildly sweet.

750ml growler (thx, Jonathan J.!). Growlered on 2016-04-01. Pours a cloudy blond with a white head. Aroma is dank, tropical fruits. Taste is similar. This one is quite similar to the beers which Twin Sails, Boombox or Superflux brew in BC. Maybe it is just a little bit better balanced than the beers of the mentioned breweries, which is not a surprise taking into account for how long HF brews this. It is definitely not something from the next level of brewing, since, for example, Superflux Colour and Shape b1 and b4 maybe taste even better.

Cloudy to murky blond color, medium head. Fruity aroma, very zesty. Lean body, not too sweet, with delicate pale malts, bitter zest character, a bit chalky in the final.
Very good.
