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.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours orange/gold with tall white head. Aroma is distinctly floral. Some tropical citrus - pineapple and orange. Flavor is sweet citrus and sweeter malt. I wouldn’t say too sweet, but close. The hop shows up nicely; some pine/resin qualities but they don’t balance out the sweetness as well. Perhaps my bottle was a bit oxidized? Still a good beer.

I really enjoyed the use of wet hops in this brew!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a very nice golden orange with a medium head. Aroma is malty with a fantastic array of citrus and pine notes. Taste at first is very citrus with a dominant orange/grapefruit note. If you let it sit on your palate a moment you will get floral notes and a nice hop finish. Very interesting IPA that is definitely citrus forward.
