Draft on tap at the brewpub (Munster, IN). Had this on draft while stopping down for gas and a new barrel aged offering on sale. Excited for this one after the success of it’s little brother in my book. Pours a well hazed orange amber hue, some deeper clear orange sunset edges and bottom strike well, the body more hazed, with a cakey offwhite head atop as a firm yet smaller layer. Aromas are richer bitter fruit hops of melon and grapefruit, white grape and florals. Gumball, oranges, dancing in and out with sweeter tropical fruit aromas. Some rye, bready malts, and grainy malts but this is a melange of hop flavor in the nose. Touches of grass, pineapple, and lemons waft in. Initial is medium bodied, giving just a girth with an incredibly rich bitter hop flavor up front. Fresh and vibrant, this beer preaches fruity hops, florals, melon and grapefruit up front. Straight grapefruit juice, pine, florals. Touches of tropical fruit are more mellow than the nose. Pine, lemon, grass and florals bring a nice strong resiny bitterness. Middle is bitter and grapefruit citrus. Pine and florals, dry and bitter. Touches of bread, fruit, and cereal malts. More fruity melon, kiss of gumball, white grape and tangerine. Moving into the backend this one offers firm bitterness, citrus, tons of grapefruit. A gentle kiss of heat at times, but what could be just strong bitter rich hop oils lingering on the palate. Fruit, gumball, oranges, and florals. Grapefruit juice, as the fruit and strong citrus flavors really stay throughout this one. I haven’t loved a lot of FFF’s new IPAs/DIPAs lately, but this one is a winner. Remiscent of Rye’d Da Lightning, but stronger, more intense, richer hop flavors. Fresh and vibrant, good bitter dryness. Very nice beer here. Get at it soon, the fresher the better I’d think.

jmgreenuk (5606) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - MAY 10, 2013
Bottle at the DISOB tasting, Den Haag. Poured a slightly hazy amber with a thin tan head. The aroma is rich fruity and a shade alcoholic. The flavour is medium to strong bitter, rich liquorice, fruit and a lovely lingering warm rich bitterness in the finish. A super beer and well worth the rating.

egajdzis (5514) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 2, 2013
Lightly hazy, orange gold color with a small, creamy, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of orange, citrus fruits, pine, light tropical fruits. Seemingly typical 3F aroma that I hadn’t had in a while. Taste of citrus, pine resin, tropical and some citrus fruits, with orange, and grapefruit bitterness in the finish. My only complaint is that I wish it were fresher. Still, very nice.

Bottle, thanks to Scopey! The pour’s light amber with a small head. The nose is grain, breash grass, orange peel and rough tropical undergrowth. Fruit salad sweetness. The taste is big tropical fruit salad - papaya and mango. Pineapple. Sticky sweet. Nice malt body cut by a sharp bitter finish. Fresh. Big body, awesome. Overall, a nice, hot & sweet DIPA.
