Can. Much better than I expected. Nice kick of fruity hops right out of the can. Clear, golden and bright, ok off white head. Peaches, pine, mango, and grapefruit mix. The taste is clean, hoppy, crisp, and super easy going down.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Drank June 10, canned June 8. Tough to get the beer to Dallas from Oklahoma too much faster. Orange pour with a white head. The aroma is a nice mix of orange and pine, with a bit of tropical fruit. The flavor is similar. There is a nice juicy character plus some bitter, resinous pine. Fairly bitter. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Love it.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
16 oz can at BRGR in Prairie Village, Kansas. The pour is a hazed orange golden with a 1/2 white head. Nice head retention and lace. The aroma is floral resin, citrus peel bitterness and a bit of malt. The taste is the bitter citrus up front, and Iced Tea Crystal malt taste behind, followed by earthy resin and more bitter. The palate is medium bodied, soft active carbonation and the dry bitter finish.

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.
