This draft brew from the brewery poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a very hazy dark orange colored body. The mild aroma was hoppy and floral. The mouth feel was "Oh My God! What an initial hop rush!" very strongly tingly at the start and at the finish with a biting hoppy aftertaste. The flavor contained notes of malt hops and strong floral hop pineyness in a deep malt base. A wonderful best in class brew.

On tap at the FFF brewpub. Pours a hazy golden orange with a medium creamy/bubbly white lacing head. Aroma of pine, grapefruit, cereal grains, Cheerios, fruity and a grainy maltiness. Flavor of grapefruit, mango, pine, caramel, lemon, great malt/hop balance, tropical fruits and on the dry side. Less sweet maltiness going on when held up against the Alpha King and Dreadnaught.

I loved the Transformers as a kid, so my rating might be biased... Light malt aroma--not much hops really. Medium to full for an IPA. Orange in color with a decent head. Nice caramel malt flavor, citrus tastes, and hops behind it all. Nice balance--thatís right, you heard me. Remember that this is not a double or imperial, and I think that helps.

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 2, 2007
nice tinted amber, IPA nose, surprised by the lack of amarillo, I thought they put íem in everything. Very tasty, and a nice full body to back up the ibus. scrumptious.

pnista (1007) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - JUL 29, 2007
Slightly hazed straw yellow with not much of a white head. Big sweet fruity gummy bear nose. Tropical fruit sort of hops. A big wonderful sweet juiciness to the hop character rather than an over the top bitterness. I would argue this isnít balanced, but thatís not a bad thing at all. Full creamy mouth with nice smooth relatively subdued bubbles. Fruity full succulent hops. A bit of a wheaty estery character perhaps? A creamy finish, with those gummy bears certainly returning.

iowaherkeye (2691) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - JAN 15, 2008
Notes from Dark Lord Day í07. On tap at the brewpub. Hazy light golden with a 1/2 finger off-white head. There was some slight skunk that I picked up on, however I didnít feel that this was bad. Pine, grass, hay and some herbal grapefruit are the hops to the biscuity malts. Flavor is much the same with a little more biscuity malts. Moderate bitterness in the finish. Medium body with low to moderate carbonation. Very good IPA, but not really like most others that Iíve had.

IPALover (63) - Carlsbad, California, USA - JUL 26, 2007
Nice cleanly hoppy IPA (made by robots according to the brewery :)). Had this beer after Dreadnot so it was difficult to determine the hop varieties used but it seems complex and spicy. Enjoyed it much but not my favorite from the brewery visit.

Cornfield (5482) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - APR 13, 2007
This is, believe it or donít, a fairly well balanced IPA from 3F. And with only 75 IBUs. Of course, according to the brewpub menu, it was "made by magic transforming robots," so that might explain it. Itís hazy pale apricot in color with a slender white head. Nice lacing. It has a nose of solid PNW hops (Surprize!) with a sweet grainy malt scent struggling to get out. The flavor starts up with sweet pale malts but is soon overcome by grapefruit and a touch of pine. Nice lingering, bitter finish. Oddly, served in a half pint glass at whole pint costs. Good, though.
