22oz. Bottle from local liquor store. Pours a beautiful, hazy golden with minimal head and slight lacing. Citrus, specifically strong hits of grapefruit hit your nose immediately. Taste is immense, exactly as it smells-citrusy with the deliciousness of grapefruit. Great Hoppiness, but not overpowering by any means. Overall, a pleasure to drink.

Kick ass DIPA. Rye adds a slight amount of body and a little mouthfeel, but this is mostly if not completely and assertive hop beer. Body is light. Bitter and piney all over, resinous finish. Very very good.

Hazy off orange pour w/ a thick tall well laced white head densly made up of little bubbles and dissapates into some soapy looking head. Aroma is first a big hit of citrus and fruity hop aromas. Then some sweet caramel a hint of rye comes through lightly then gets covered up by a second wave of grassy hops. Palate is rich and lightly creamy. Flavor is subtly sweet on the front some of that is probably from the Rye as well with a resinous slightly piney finish a lingering bitterness is light and balances the malty front end. Loads of piney hops in the aftertaste, not much of the fruitiness in the front that I liked so much in the nose. Thoroughly enjoyable, but lacking a bit of balance that some maturity might give it.

Pours hazy golden orange with white head which thins. Aroma is floral and piney hops. Taste is sweet malt, rye, honey, with grapefruit citrus and piney hops balancing well. Dry and quite bitter on the finish. Very nice as usual with FFF

Bomber. Pours medium orange, quite heady, so much that it flowed over the glass. Nice floral scent. Taste is grassy hops, rye, citrus. Slight bitterness but very easy to drink. Tasty brew.

Bomber. Pours a mostly orange with golden highlights.......whitish head that laced nicely. Aroma is a ripened citrus, slight vanilla. Taste is a great combo of hops, citrus, banana, very slight peppery spice note. Very nice Rye IPA.

I'm a little surprised this rates so low. I think this is a fantastic rye IPA. Everything about this is great.

Pours a lighter orange/deep yellow. Smells of floral/pine/Citrus hops, always quality with FFF. Tastes pine and grapefruit with rye but a nice balanced malt that really rounds out the beer.

Bottle shared by Max at the dad palace for the Daduary 2013 tasting. Pours a deep, hazy amber orange body with nice head and lots of lacing. Aroma is juicy fresh grapefruit, pine, and rye. Mouthfeel is medium with same notes in the flavor. Overall a great IPA.
