AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
A – Looks like an orange sour candy, cloudy, 3 finger dense whit ahead that fades to some very pretty lacing.
S – The nose is so very much Shaun Hill. Simcoe, Citra, OMG. two favorite hops together and Mosaic bringing up the rear. tangerine skins, floral, herbal with enough piney ness. Excellent blend.
T – Flavor is nice. I’d say simcoe seems to really dominate the flavor here. substantial bitterness with a lot of juicy fruit, dank resin, grapes.
M – Very thick, creamy even, Maybe that’s the oats lending this mouthfeel? It lacks that tonic water, sparkling water brightness and it’s almost intensely thick like a milkshake.
O – Maybe this if HF’s response to those oat IPAs everyone is doing. There’s a lot going for this one but I just can’t get past the mouthfeel.
