4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
I got a 22oz bottle of this from Woodman’s West in Madison, WI in November 2012 for $8.99.
This pours a clear, copper amber color with a fluffy off-white head. The scent is rather strong with the scent of hops indicating a bitter/crisp taste lies ahead. The taste is rich with hops! Initially you get waves of yeast, banana, and bread tones that eventually evolves into a bitter, crisp finish. Texture is great as is the complex taste as if I would expect anything less from FFF.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
11/17/14. Bottle. Pours hazy straw-gold with a fluffy white head, resilient. Aroma is floral, herbal, citrus, grass, pine, perfume, juicy, slightly nutty, candied ginger. Taste is bursting with tropical fruit; juicy, light colored fruits, pine, pineapple, grass, spicy, herbal, citrus (orange, lime?), some sweetness, bread, caramel. Nice lacing throughout. Medium (almost medium-high) carbonation. Medium-full bodied; chewy. Excellent wet-hop harvest ale meets IPA. The whole thing is vaguely reminiscent of Ecto Cooler; so big points there. Nice job,

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
on tap @ Holler Hops and Grill / Florence KY --- Hazy dark orange amber, 1/2" white head, curtain of lace. Taste is solid malt that is taken over by assertive hops in the palate. The malt never completely gives up, but is relegated to the background in a brew in which all aspects are aggressive. A good solid hoppy brew.

Pours light hazy amber, big foamy head sticks around. Can really smell the fresh dry hop aroma! Taste is just excellent, balanced with minimal lingering bitterness and good sweetness.Excellent example of this style.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Under 2 weeks old. Rich amber body with some darker copper hues in the center; shiny & capped with an off-white, semi-soapy head. Aroma is super wet & super hoppy... Go figure. Floral notes, juicy citrus, mild perfume, & little hints of pine dropping in & out over a very lightly toasted cracker malt body. Malt plays a bigger role on the palate... Kind of like a sweet, toasted cookie. The sweetness is counterbalanced by a plethora of oily, wet hops, lightly candied & bitter grapefruit peel, pine needles, & a modestly floral finish. Zesty on the palate with a mostly dry finish, leaving just a slight mouth coating behind. Quite good.

UPDATED: OCT 20, 2014 Draft at Three Floyds Brewery, Munster. Pours a deep golden orange. Nose has heavy pine, grapefruit, citrus, bread and thick caramel. Taste is super bitter up front. Loads of caramel and grapefruit with pine and citrus hiding in the background. Very balanced. Booze hidden. Fuck me. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
