Pours a clear gold with frothy tan tinged head. Aroma is grapefruit and pine wood. Flavor is delicious bitter citrus, white grapefruit and an undertone of brown sugar. Body is medium with a lot of carbonation.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Light caramel and 3F’s signature pine/grapefruit/pineapple/floral hops aroma. Hazy orange with a moderate off-white head. Sweet caramel, and again that 3F’s signature hops flavor, pine / grapefruit / pineapple / floral. Medium body, slight dryness in the finish. I first had this beer a couple of years ago on tap at 3Fs, when it was called Cenotaph. I’ve had it several time since, and It’s definitely a good beer, but my opinion is that it’s yet another over-hyped brew.

This one is simply amazing! Pours golden orange with a little white head. Aroma is overwhelming with fruits (mainly peaches, mango, and other tropical fruits), citrus, and hops. Simply incredible! First time I give a 10 on aroma! Taste is the same as the aroma, tough more subtle. Nice bitterness. Full bodied beer with a creamy texture. Once again, a really amazing one!
Une de mes meilleures bières à vie! Robe oragne dorée avec un léger collet blanc. Arôme riche et envahissant comprenant principalement des fruits (pêches, mangue et autres fruits tropicaux), mais également des agrumes et du houblon. Le gout est semblable à l’arôme, mais en moins explosif. Bonne amertume. Ronde en bouche, texture crémeuse. Une bâtèche de bonne biere!

Trade via Honkybra - Thanks! Man, this is almost perfect, as far as I am concerned. I absolutely love medium to light bodied pales, with a crapload of fresh hops, which is exactly what you’ve got here. Lots f grapefruit, a wee bit of caramel. I would drink this all the time if I could get it here...

4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle 355 ml. Thanks to dountcounttoday! Pours hazy golden/light amber with a small white head and some lacing. Color is beautiful. Aroma is impressive! Strong notes of tropical fruits, peach(!), mango, hops, floral and herbal. Very complex, probably the best aroma i’ve seen in a beer so far! Taste is like aroma, but lighter. Tropical fruits. Slight bitterness, but not overwhelming. Mouthfeel is creamy. Medium to full body. This one is a great beer. High drinkability, refreshing, great complexity, nice balance, nose is perfect...wow!

bottle, honey color, mild lacing, crisp APA, with a hoppy bite.
A sip is worth a thousand words, Crisp clean Citra hops put the smack down. Get some.

Got in a trade from FullObs...thanks, Brett! This is awesome. Worth the hype. Grass and sweet orange rind leap out of the bottle at arm’s length when I opened this. Mild, fading head and almost no lacing. Pretty light amber. Nose is distinct and clean, turning out some honey as it warms. Super clean, crisp finish with lingering mouthwatering bitterness. Medium body-normally would want a bit more, but it works great here.

tap. Slightly hazy amber, small head..
Scent is strong grapefruit, hops..
Taste is grapefruit, pine...nicely fruity...some sweetness amongst the citrus hops.
Wonderfully smooth, yet bitingly hoppy.
