F5 is the force of nature its name would have you suspect. This is a hop bomb brewed in the West Coast way with enough alpha acids to blast your palate into submission. Grapefruit zest and crisp pine - oh yes, there’s lots of bitter, good stuff in here. Some of Oklahoma’s tornadoes have been rumored to be so powerful they’ve stripped the skin off anyone unfortunate enough to be in their way. This F5 is more benevolent. It’ll just strip the enamel off your teeth.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A- Pineapple, tropical fruits, subtle malts, hoppy.
A- Orange color, cloudy liquid, white head.
T- Pine, bitter, citrus, subtle caramel.
P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, bitter finish.
O- Wanted a lot more citrusy juicy notes than I got but as it warmed the pineapple on the nose really came out. A little bit of caramel helped with the bitterness, but not enough.

Can from my secret santa! Pour has a dark golden color with a coating of white head. Aroma has sweet malt, mid range bitterness, resins, and pines. Mouth feel is solid and the carbonation medium. Flavor is big on the malts, creeping bitterness, perfume, resins, and a long drawn out finish.

Pint can. I could smell the citrusy hops as soon as I cracked it open, which was good. Very approachable for the stated 100+ IBUs. Some malts noticeable, but the hops were the star. Solid IPA and I was satisfied with my purchase.
