brewskis (123) - Saint John, Indiana, USA - DEC 1, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 23, 2013 Have had plenty of times, but have never reviewed it. Pours a hazy sunset orange color with a finger length head that goes away quickly. All their double ipas look the same, but that’s not a bad thing. Nice carbonation coming off the glass. Smells of resinous pine, fresh cut grass, apricot, little sweetness, breadiness quality to it, little orange. Very dry. Interesting smell. Taste starts with a smack in the face of abrasive bitterness. Get some apricot, orange, tons of grapefruit, pine, some grass in the front. Then the breadiness from the malts kick in in the middle and somewhat cut the bitterness. The sweetness from the dextrose sugar also comes in and somewhat balances it. Then on the back end, just loads of more abrasive bitterness, but accompanied with flavors of grapefruit, apricot, mango, pine, some grass, some floral notes as well. The sweetness lingers through the back end. The carbonation does wonders for this beer to at least try to clean the palate from the resinous hop qualities. Very dry finish. No detection of the 9% alcohol content, which has never been a problem for them. High medium body with a creamy and oily texture from the hop oils. If you are a hop head, you will love this beer. Very intense, yet complex.

On tap at Camba Tap-House, Munich. Pours cloudy orange. Piney and citrussy hop nose. Potent hop bitterness in the mouth with notes of pine, orange zest and grapefruit. Great IPA.

1 pint. Aroma is fruity, malt, apple. Appearance is cloudy orange with a fast decreasing foam. Taste is light sour and bitter with a hint of sweetness. A almost not existing carbonation. Light dry finish. Good mouth feel. Overall a very nice Imperial IPA.

rdixon77 (783) - Georgia, USA - OCT 10, 2014
Solid DIPA. Peach colored with tons of lacing. Piney, tropical, and malty aroma. Pretty clean body for being so big with plenty of malt, pineapple, and pine flavors. Good stuff for sure.

Rando7 (741) - Iowa, USA - SEP 30, 2014
Bottle pours clear orange with thin white head. Strong citrus aroma with some pine. Flavor sweet malt backbone with citrus and mango. Great thick but not syrupy palate. Bittler finish but surprisingly delicate for such a big beer. Well done.

SpongeRuiner (752) - Michigan, USA - SEP 29, 2014
Got a bottle from the brewery. Pours into a bright candied orange color with a thick white head. A fresh mango and hop bursted aroma. Frothy upfront with a citrus filled flavor. Nice ratio of bitterness and fruity flavors. Definitely more on the aggressive side for a DIPA yet very nice feel. The hop feel covers the whole mouth and lingers on. A lot of great flavors in this big double IPA. Good stuff.

Bottle from unknown via Kyler B. Pours a clear orange amber, decent amount of off white head. Aroma resin and caramel, crisp with a hint of grapefruit as well. Body medium-starchy, finish slightly bitter, warm and lush, another solid IIPA from FFF.

"Cool and unique - never had a dry hopped mead before. Abv hidden, hippiness a really nice twist, especially in the nose. Light honey and a citrusy bitterness throughout. "

22 oz bottle from the brewery. Pours a clear peach color with a creamy white head that fades to a wisp and light lacing. Aroma is hops and tropical fruit with pineapple and malt. Flavor is same with big hop character. Medium bodied, active carbonation, and bitter finish with alcohol well masked. Solid.

Pretty solid DIPA, good aroma, reasonably fruity flavor. More tropical than anything else.

I got this one in a recent trade with spycow. Decided I would bring it to our IPA day celebration.

A - Pours golden orange with a nice one finger tall white head leaving small wisps of lace down the glass.

S - Smells of grassy hops, tropical fruits; mostly grapefruit and mango; lightly toasted caramel malt, some day old bread, and the faintest hint of warming booze.

T - Starts off with a nice grassy hop bite quickly giving way to a mix of grapefruit, mango, sweet caramel malt, chewy bread, and some warming alcohol. The finish is a mix of light sweetness and hop bitterness, lingering for a short period of time.

M - Medium body and flavor with moderate carbonation. Sweet, hoppy, feel that lingers on the pallet for some time after finish.

O - I liked this one. It wasn’t as good as the Dreadnaught I opened right before it but it was still pretty good. Another winner from FFF in my book.
