Tap. Lacing. Clear amber-gold. Strong oakey boozey nose. Tastes boozey, oakey and trumps the bitterness a bit.

MWMBeerguy (69) - Massachusetts, USA - MAY 20, 2014
Amazing aroma. Nice appearance (a nice amber with a thin white head). But I'm not a fan of the caramel and boozy taste. Good beer, just not my favorite ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

FestDecBeet (79) - - MAY 12, 2014
UPDATED: MAY 13, 2014 Look: pours a light gold color. Thick head disappearing quickly. Very clear. Smell: great smell. Fruit gloves like a fruit gum. Almost tropical flavors. Pineapple. Taste: very hoppy. Some pepper on the tongue. Definite bitterness that stands out. Not as fruity as the smell. A Deontae tang that I can't pinpoint. Feel: has that pale ale feel leaves a film on the mouth. Not quite a tongue scraper/ palate killer but close. Overall: tasty, wish it was as fruity to taste as the smell. Would drink more. First drank: home 5/13/14

Lothore (542) - California, USA - MAR 29, 2014
A- Pours a rusty orange color with a thick, 2 finger head which leaves lacing all the way down. S- Pine resin, caramel, wheat T- Lots of resiney pine, residual sweetness, breadiness, following by a deep lingering bitterness. M- Thick with medium / low carbonation. D- This is a great brew by FFF. A little too sweet for me but I suppose it needs to be to stand up to that wall of hops. I’d repeat.

Pours a slightly hazy golden. Thin white head. Aroma is slightly pine and malty caramel. Fairly sweet. Lots of caramel. I like this a lot. But is isn't a west coast dipa. Finishes sweet. Nice beer.
