WOW!!!!!! This is what an ale should taste like!!! Although I don’t agree with the commercial description, I think this is alot more of a beer leaning to the hop and not that of of a balanced beer, but I’m not complaining! This beer will treat you well....very well.

Tasted in NYC. Tasted at brewtopia 04. Aroma is floral and spicy, very typical of an american IPA. Appearance is copper with a sustained white head. Well overhopped taste, dry a very slight hint of malt somewhere and overpowering bitterness.

Brewtopia’04. Like other FFF, this one is piney in a big way. Pine on flavor but dominated by cirtus. This may be my favorite APA. For sure, I’ll have to get some more to sample.

Draught somewhere in Chicago. This beer is a pleasure. Not much better than most other American Pale Ales from microbreweries. Nice complexity and balance. Something is missing can’t say what. Incredible fruity aroma.

Oh, Mama. Had it once from the bottle. This time had it at the brewery poured by Nick Floyd. This is great stuff. Cloudy copper with small beige head. Hops/grapefruit to the nose. Medium body. Flavor was crisp and clean and refreshing. Real kick ass for an American Pale Ale.
