Bomber, pours medium clear golden orange with white head. Very nice floral hoppy aroma. Taste is quite hoppy as well, with pine and grapefruit standing out, heavy bitterness throughout. A solid DIPA.

Pour is hazy golden yellow with a bubbly white head. Aroma is a hop bomb with notes of pine needles, grapefruit, and tropical fruit. Flavor is similar but balanced out nicely with notes of caramel and earth. Great IPA.

22 ounce bottle. Thanks Al. Pours a somewhat cloudy golden orange with a nice white head. Aroma of citrus, pine, and malt. Taste is citrus, topical fruits, caramel malt, pine, and a bit of alcohol. Very nice.

November 9, 2013 - bottle shared by Brandon. Clear yellow pour with some head. Aroma and taste was a nice blend of malt and hops, maybe a bit more on the malt than I would like, but very good.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
In short: An aggressive boozy & grapefruity blonde IPA. Too harsh.
How: Bottle 22oz, consumed fresh a few weeks after receiving the bottle from cetherid, thanks a lot Chris.
The look: Cloudy orange-blonde body topped by a small white head.
In long: Nose is pungent orange-grapefruit hops, alcohol fumes, dank notes, a bit musky too. In mouth the beer has a medium body with an active carbonation. Taste is sugary pale malts, candied orange peels, dried fruits, old honey turning into sugars, crème caramel, bitter grapefruits, other citrus fruits. Ends with a strong alcohol bite and an assertive sharp bitterness. Alcohol is a bit too apparent for my taste. Below average for the style, drinkability was rather low. Had to believe the high ratings on this beer, sometimes I wish I wore prescription glasses just so I could raise them up and rub my eyes with my fingers while mumbling how the stupid your ratings are. I used to like intense brutal beers like this but not so much anymore, I’d like to say I’m becoming more mature with age but my thousands of ratings kind of prove the opposite.

(bottle - 22 oz) Hazy gold pour with a sticky white head. Big citrus aroma with a bit of dry grass at the end. Flavor starts off citrusy but moves to a bitter and peppery middle and a very dry and bitter finish. Sticky mouthfeel and a lingering bitter aftertaste.

A huge thank you to Sean for sending me this bottle.
The beer is orange with a small off white head. The aroma is classic FFF. Hop forward with a robust, supportive malt body. Dank citrus and biscuits. A full bodied beverage, teeming with flavor. Alcohol presence is there but unobtrusive. Well-balanced and delicious. Really, a wonderful beer.

1.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Intensely syrupy, peachy, and resiny, this beer left me feeling as if someone punched me in the mouth, defiled my bleeding lips, and then ran off with my lunch money. Aggressively hopped is one understatement. Full-bodied with a firm malt backing would be another. There’s simply way too much going on here, resulting in a beer that might be more appropriate for stripping paint off of fabricated metal than it is for drinking.
