3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma- pretzels, rye, hay, hops, smokiness
Appearance- lighter colored than I anticipated, nice lacing
Taste- crazy amount of rye upfront, nice smothering of hops, some malt to clean the palate up, more rye on the finish
Palate- very nice mouthfeel on this one, heavy but not cloyingly so
Overall- 3F strikes again with a crazy brew. This one really surprised me, all in good ways.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from a trade with George. It pours clear orange with a medium white head. The nose is pine, orange, tangerine, mango, touch of marmalade and some creaminess. The taste is grapefruit, mango, resin, spice, pine, assertive bitterness, alcohol, earth and light metal with very long bitter-dry finish. Medium body and fine, prickly carbonation. Flavoursome, good bitterness and well balanced. As usual these guys deliver.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a cloudy peach-orange yellow with a nice, mid-sized, lasting head. Floral, hop aroma. Flavor is dominated by a strong, citrusy-hop top layer, with a nice rye bite underneath. Full, sweetish finish. There are times when I wish I lived in Munster, Indiana--this is one of them. Very nice beer.

Bottle shared by nuplastikk. Thanks! Poured a clear orange-yellow color with a small, wispy head. Aroma was some tropical fruits, solid malt backing to this one. Flavor was notes of toffee, malt, resin hop character.

Shared by nuplastikk. Thanks man!
The beer is straw yellow and mildly hazy with a thick white cap. The aroma offers a bouquet of tropical fruits atop a sturdy malt bill. Tangerines, pineapple, grapefruit blend beautifully with bread and biscuit flavors. Robust and full bodied with ample carbonation. Alcohol content is hidden well. Another very tasty offering from FFF.

Bottle shared by nuplastikk: pours a clear bright golden with a stringy lacing white head. Has a fresh resiny hoppy nose with some light malty sweetness. Starts with good fullness and sweet light caramel with lots of fresh hop flavor and resiny bitterness before a drier bittersweet finish. Well-balanced and enjoyable.

This poured a darker orange to red color with a beige head. Aroma was fruity tropical hops, and rye, booze and caramel. Flavor was much the same, good balance of fruity hops and malt, not over the top bitter, booze is a little hotter than I would have liked but still a pretty solid beer.

Half pint at the brewpub. This is a terrific double IPA. Wonderful floral aroma. Bitter, juicy citrus flavor with nice dry finish. This beer is very refreshing and easy to drink for its high abv. Very dangerous.
