4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

Bottle. Orange/tropical fruit, bready rye malt, and caramel aroma. Cloudy orange amber with a small off-white head. Orange peel, bready and spicy rye malt, and sweet mango flavor. Full sticky body, moderate carbonation. Not a bad choice for my 50th DIPA.

Pours pretty thick orang sunrise with a creamy tan head. Aroma is juicy, lemons and rye spice. Hops may have faded a bit, but they are present bringing some tang and citrus and then the rye bready flavor comes in on a full, thicker body.

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 - thanks Jeremiah! Pour hazy golden amber with a large creamy off-white head that slowly dissipates with nice lacing. A lot of sediment in the bottom of the bottle. Aroma is wonderful grapefruit, a bit of pine. Flavor is about the same, plus a noticeable spiciness from the rye. Lightly sweet, light to medium bitter. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel. Nice beer.
