On tap. Came to the table with virtually no head. A murky amber/rusty body. Resiny, grapefruity aroma. Full-bodied. Tastes like it smells. A great deal of citrusy hops throughout. A very solid I2PA and one of the best brews old Franklin has to offer. Not watered down like the rest...

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - DEC 16, 2007
On tap at the brewpub on 12/6/07: Pours a transparent orange bronze with a stringy-lacing wispy off-white head. Aroma of fresh grapefruity hops and some sweet caramel malt. Starts rich and malty sweet with a good big citrusy hop balance toward a crisp, bittersweet fairly full finish. Very true to style and well-made.

3fourths (9137) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 7, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 10, 2013 Tawny dark rust colored body. The nose is surprisingly vibrant and fresh, with a heavy dose of pine sap, pine needles and fresh cut cedar. Thick and viscous, sharp up front with a moderate level of bitterness, itís weighted somewhat by crystal malt, so it resembles what most would call American Strong Ale or Imperial Red. The hops are very forward, with an oily, resinous pine and cedar flavor. Finishes beefy and frothy, with a big chewiness that lasts well into the finish. One of the better beers Iíve had from Franklinís.

nimbleprop (7487) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - JAN 6, 2007
Poured with a thin but creamy slightly off white head. Color was completely opaque and orange with green hues, yes green. Smell of pine and soap, fuggles hops among others. Flavor was just citrus but not sour, almost like meyer lemons. Extremely bitter finish which has a hint of soap too. Flavor could have been stronger.

hopscotch (10609) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 4, 2007
Draft... Murky mud puddle ale with a small, creamy, off-white head. Decent retention. The nose is caramel and Munich malts with citrusy and floral hop notes... pine, grapefruit, flower arrangement. The flavor is lightly sweet caramel with heavily bitter pine, citrusy hops. Full-bodied and astringent with medium carbonation. Bitter, dry finish.
