3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Healthy tap pour - golden/copper with a decent white head that holds on for a while. Aroma is generally sweet and hoppy and nicely balanced - the hops are hard to get a handle on...some grassiness, resinous, and a bit of tropical fruit in there as well...my first experience with this hop varietal, and I’m not sure what to take away...not bad stuff though. Flavor is sweet early with a turn to the bitter side, but not so much to keep this from being an easy quaff. Caramel malt, then the piney/resinous hops kick in, but there’s that fruit again. Palate is oily and easy drinking. Good brew overall, I actually enjoyed this a decent amount.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a murky caramel-tan color with a medium sized soapy-creamy orange-white head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma was sweetish and tangy with notes of pine, fruity hops and a bit of tropical fruits. The flavor was bitter and tart pine with touches of tropical fruits and dust. Medium length bitter pine and tropical fruit finish. Medium body. Ok.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle:   Dirty straw, a little muddy and dark, hazy, thin to moderate sudsy white head, spotty lacing.   Somewhat of a aromatic, yet stale and musty hop nose.   Some aspects remind me of faint whafs of model airplane glue, others a earthy/soilly mountain shrub like floral note.   A bit more entertaining on the tongue.   More citrusy, with that shrubby aspect.   The model airplane glue is not present.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Does have a very shrubby, slightly earthy/soily presense on the finish.   Tiz okay, but not sure I am a fan of the FF hop.   Thanks Kevin!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
tap at Black Sparrow on 5/11/13 - Pours hazy orange and has a fairly mild, citrusy aroma. The flavor has good, crisp bitterness and a basic, mild malt profile. It’s medium bodied with a crisp, bitterness finish. This beer is quite good though maybe lacks complexity.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pour is a nice brownish gold with a medium-sized head and aromas of lemon peels. Flavor is light and refreshing with a cat pee and lemon hoppiness to it that is clean and balanced. Not sure if I really get into this beer or not, it seems kind of boringly middle-of-the-road IPA, but definitely a cool concept.

Pours hazy amber with medium white head and some sediment floating around. Aroma is earthy straw and grassy hops. Taste is earthy and resinous upfront with some spruce/pine hops on the follow through. Aftertaste is lingering bitter dank piny hops. Palate is thin and somewhat sticky. Overall this one was just okay for me.
