UPDATED: JUL 17, 2016 On tap at Blackback Pub. Amazing tropical fruit aroma. Silky smooth tropical hops in the taste, creeping bitter finish. American ipa perfection. skiatd1 (48) - New Hampshire, USA - SEP 20, 2016
Appearance- cloudy, yellow
Taste- delicious. One of my favorite beers. Great balanced but slightly bitter hop profile.

750ml growler courtesy of a great BA trader. the pour is an incredibly bright but hazy peach color capped by a fluffy, rocky white head that leaves dense sheets of lace. aroma is incredible, one of the best i’ve ever experienced, with massive, tropical, citra hop notes of pineapple, tangerine, apricot, and mango backed by white grapefruit, dense pine, and lime peels with subtle hints of honey covered biscuits and vanilla as it opens up, flavor is damn near perfect as well with a blast of juicy tangerines, grapefruit, and nectarines up front with sweet pineapple, papaya, and stonefruit through the middle before finishing with rush of resinous pine, herbal bitterness, and wet grass. palate is immensely drinkable with a light body and perfect carbonation and that combination of juicy citrus and resiny bitterness that i love. overall, a truly world class ipa and perhaps the best i’ve had from HF.

(Bottle) Pours hazy yellow golden to orange with an off-white. The aroma holds pine, grapefruit, tangerines, black pepper alongside some tropical fruit and red berries. Perfect pale, cracker-like malt profile. Extremely clean nose. The flavour is dry, medium to heavily bitter and tiny acidic. Citrus, pine and dry tropical fruits. Slim malt profile. The mouthfeel is tight and clean yet soft with a medium carbonation. Just perfect. Near medium bodied. Jordtbrooks (20) - Michigan, USA - NOV 4, 2015
Pours a light gold with white head. Aroma of pine citrus and yeast. Wonderful pine flavors. Finishes amazingly smooth.

UPDATED: FEB 13, 2016 Pours cloudy bright orange with a foamy two finger white head with amazing lacing. Aroma is of fresh citrus juice, juicy tropical fruits (pineapple and mango), melon, strawberries, pine resin, grassy and herbal hops, light bready malts, and light sweet malts. Taste is fresh citrus (a lot of grapefruit), juicy tropical fruits, pine resin, freshly cut grass, and some light bready malts in the background. Has a medium body with a super creamy, soft mouthfeel and a semi dry, moderately bitter, long, lingering finish. Overall, a amazing, worldclass, super tasty and complex IPA that is my favorite of the style and probably my 2nd favorite beer ever after Pliney The Younger. oteyj (2139) - New Hampshire, USA - NOV 16, 2012
On tap at the Brewery. The pour is mega hazy straw with a perfect creamy head that lasts throughout the glass. The aroma holds explosive citrus and nectar fruit- think tangerine, mandarin orange, and apricot with an assertive background of orange peel and clementine. Hints of green pepper that I also got from the Riwaka single hop and Cantillon Mamouche- not unpleasant whatsoever, and super interesting. The flavor bursts with orange and juicy nectar fruit, leaving hints of pine, and finishing with a very strong grapefruit juice character. The palate is quenching and bone dry in the finish with fluffy meringue like carbonation that provokes an immediate and viscerally compulsory followup gulp. A near perfect ipa for my tastes...

UPDATED: JAN 4, 2014 Un ipa hyper aromatique, kiwi, mangue, pêche, raisin vert, agrumes sucrés et en bouche c’est parfaitement carbonaté avec une amertume qui se dissipe rapidement. Étoffée et succulente bière de soif. BrettTaylor (776) - Radford, Virginia, USA - JUL 3, 2013
Had as a taster at the brewery. Will update once I’ve dug into the growler for a full glass. PA, rich head, lots of lacing, floral happy note, malt, Carmel, and citrus. Not as in your face hoppy as a traditional IPA, but deliciously smooth. Hazy rich golden color. Long mellow finish. Leaves you licking your lips. Seriously seriously good.
