Clear golden with a fizzy white head. Caramel, vanilla, candy, and citrus hops aroma. Grapefruit, candy, vanilla, orange and lemon taste with a big bitter bite. Pretty damn good.

Bottle from the brew pub courtesy of bhiner41. Pours a hazy amber yellow with esentially no head and no lacing. Aroma is beautiful citrus hops. Syrup-like on the palate with light carbonation. Taste is all hops. A very good DIPA, but I think Dreadnaught is more balanced.

UPDATED: JAN 14, 2012 Pours a very pale gold and with minimal frothy head. Nose is loads of hops-piney, citrusy, herbal spiciness, oranges, mango and grapefruit and nearly no malt aroma to speak of but all the hop is there. The taste is pines, oranges, grapefruit, and herbal spicy hops, still very little malt character to speak of and that is really a good thing. This baby is bone dry and not lacking in hops. The mouth feel is light and silky. Not shy in bitterness. Very awesome.

Enjoyed at Local Option on tap in Chicago, IL while hanging out with a good friend for his birthday. This was what he was having, so therefore all other members of the party ordered the same thing. Appearance cloudy gold with rich white head. Aroma grassy, very rich in hops. Taste super hoppy, sticks in the back of your throat, very grassy, good but definitely a sipper, high abv. Would recommend!

GrungyBob (62) - Kettering, Ohio, USA - DEC 3, 2010
Bottle, pours a hazy golden with thick white fluffy head that dissipates quickly. Aroma, wonderful citrus and floral hops with a very soft sweetness like honey or cotton candy. Taste, initially is honey like sweetness then the hops build with a very dry pine finish. Gets more bitter the longer it sits in the glass, its good but not what an iipa should be

Hazy golden pour, foamy soap suds head. hoppy aroma- fruity, citrusy, floral, slight funk/mustiness, slight cotton candy. Flavor starts a little sugary sweet, honeyish, leading to a nice hop presence, bitterness starts slow but builds, never getting terribly bitter though. nice hop flavor in the finish-pine in the finish, lingering bitterness. A little soft for a IIPA, slightly thin in the body, but good. Improves as it warms a bit in the glass, but leaves me wanting Dreadnaught!!!!

TheEpeeist (3189) - Swarthmore, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 2, 2010
22 oz bottle. Foggy yellow brown with a fluffy white head. Nose is dough, musk, grapefruit pith and toffee. Resiny medium body with moderate carb. Taste is lemon, lime, grapefruit and pine. Barely a trace of sweetness, a bit soapy in the finish. Another distinctive brew from 3F.

AlephNull3 (114) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 1, 2010
Local Option Chi town. Pours a nice golden hue slightly cloudy. Has a nice sweet hoppy flavor and aroma. Nice dry bitter explosion that mellow to a nice malfunctioning finish. Highly recommended.

Thorpe429 (5007) - , Illinois, USA - NOV 30, 2010
Poured a bright orange with a bit of hazy and a nice white head. Smells of grapefruit, citrus, and pine with a little bit of malt sweetness. The taste was of intense bitterness with plenty of citrus hops coming through. A little bit of alcohol heat in the taste, bringing down the mouthfeel a little bit, but still pairing fairly well with the hoppy dryness. Good drinkability for a beer this bitter. Surprise, surprise, another very solid hoppy offering from FFF. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 01-23-2010

On tap at Three Floyds, pours a hazy orange with a decent head, aroma is strong with grapefruit and citrus notes, the flavor is extremely hoppy with a great kick of pine and fruit, is very balanced with the malt and the hops, extremely enjoyable brew.
