4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22 oz. bottle: Coppery colored pour with a ring of foam. The nose is really fresh hops, bright and distinct. Sweet grapefruit, rose petal perfume and fresh oranges and tangerines. The body starts perfectly bitter, with loads more fresh hops to follow. A light caramel notes keeps the hop onslaught in check. Very easy to drink and perfectly balanced. This is a great IPA.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
22 oz. bottle via trade with Ughsmash - Pours a clear copper color with a one finger thick off white head. Light bubbly carbonation. Very light spotty lacing. Has that typical killer 3F’s aroma. Floral, tropical fruit, citrus, and faint pine. Flavor is mostly hops, fruity esters, and lightly sweetened toasted malt. No lingering aftertaste. A big plus in my book. Medium body. I could drink this all day, every day. An excellent beer. Thanks Jason.

Much thanks to ogglethorp for answering my call for this one in a trade. Pours a translucent golden amber with a medium creamy off white bubbly/creamy head that left nice lacing. Aroma of pine, caramel, floral notes and some mixed citrus Flavor of fresh hops...wow...love that wet hop flavor and it is really showcased in this beer. Some iced tea notes, floral hints and a touch of citrus and pine. Malt notes are mostly caramel and not overly sweet. Bitterness is there but really almost takes a back seat to the hop flavor. Very happy I had a chance to try this one.

This one poured an orange color with a moderate white head. The flavor is loaded with pine with some lemons and orange peels. This one is big on the bitterness as well as the sweetness but it balances well. The flavor contains the flavor of just about every citrus fruit in existence. I taste lemons, grapefruit, peaches, oranges. To me this was like Dreadnaught Lite. Overall a very nice IPA.

YEHA. Hazy orange in color with a small off white head. Alot of fresh resinous citrus and earth in the aroma. Taste is moderately malty with a good deal of sticky citrus and earthy hops. One dimensional, but good.

Bottle, thanks sersdf. Orangey-red pour with a thin white head. Smells GREAT. It’s pretty much all hops, but so fresh. I wish I’d had it right after it had come out. Good underlying sweetness - apricots, clementines. Flavor isn’t as good as the aroma, but the finish is similar to the aroma. Mellow bitter finish. Could use a little more carbonation. A good IPA though.
