This starts with a nice big punch of hop aroma, orange and grapefruit being the predominant notes. Pours a clear amber, with a huge fluffy white head. The flavor is not quite a punch of hops, as it is an aggressively hop forward beer, with a big malt profile to soften and balance it out. Very easy drinking, with just a hint of heat pointing out the alcohol content. I’m very impressed with this one.

Excellent Double IPA - shared a bomber with friend at the Freakin Frog in Las Vegas. This beer shares a seat in the same class as Pliny the Elder. Really enjoyed it and wish I could get it here in Columbus.

Pours a hazy amber with a thin white head and good lacing. Aroma is big grapefruit and citrus hops but it’s not overpowering. You can stick your nose in your glass for days. Taste is a great balance of grapefruit hop bitterness and sweet malt. So well balanced. I wish this was available to me at all times!

On tap at sierra. One of my new favorite DIPA’s. What really gets me in this one is the citrus element. Looks great in the snifter, a great darker golden color, rich white head. Aromas are dominated by a lemon citrus with slight orange, just superb balance. Bitter in the finish with flavor that rips the palate with pine and west coast flare. Amazing, FW never ceases to amaze me.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle - 650ml. Beautiful hazy amber/orange body with an average white creamy head. Fresh, sharp hoppy taste with flowery, fruity, bubblegum, and malty hints. Alcohol is very well hidden. Its robust, complex hoppy taste carries fruity and caramel notes. It ends with a long, strong, warming bitter finish. Excellent Double IPA.

Very fresh citrusy taste, could have had a stronger hop bite, but over all this beer kicks hard and tastes great
