EddieG (169) - Palos Heights, Illinois, USA - NOV 9, 2007
Intense hop aroma and flavor that almost tingled the nose and mouth. Not hop bitter but flavor and aroma hops kill! INtense citrus and light pine flavors dominate with a dry to semi sweet malt sweetness that is just right. On tap the beer has more to of the hop mouth zest but the but the bottle is almost equal in hop intesity. A bit a a metallic aftertaste that kept this one from scoring higher.

Shared bottle at Craft. Poured hazy straw with off-white head. Nose was resiny hops, pine, grapefruit, pineapple. Rich, complex flavor, a lot dancing around on the tongue, great hop bitterness coupled with tropical citrus. Outstanding.

Tasted from a bottle. Pours a slightly hazy orange with thick white head. Aroma is huge fruit forward. Notes of grapefruit, papaya, orange, lemon, pineapple. Taste is moderate to heavily bitter. Flavors of citrus and tropical fruit, some pine and resin, a little floral flavor. Overall an excellent IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bomber- pours a bright orange with thick white head. Nose - fresh tropical fruit, apricot and mellon. Taste- sugar cookies, slightly grassy but low levels compared to many other wet hop beers. dry resin finish. Crisp and very drinkable.

Terminus (3679) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - OCT 15, 2016
Bottle dated 22 Sept Pours bright clear orange with a small soapy white head with some whispy lacing. Nose is floral slightly catty sweet malt base crackers very solid. Flavors are very catty lots of tart tropical hops and fairly bitter yet balanced with sweetness. My main gripe is that its very catty on the flavors. Fairly dry finish I am thinking dry rye malt or maris otter.

Very crisp all hop flavor in this brew. Good bitter flavor but very good over all. All hops in this with a touch of caramel malt. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from Cappys Norwood. Theres a derth of wet-hop offerings on the shelves here that Ive seen, so was pretty happy that these came to town. But I have to confess -- I find myself wanting to enjoy FFF brews more than I actually do. Ive become more reluctant to pull the trigger, but its the right time of year to buy a $10 fresh-hop IPA I guess. I dig the commercial description of "apricot" in color -- Id have gone with "pale", but apricot sounds more aromatic. Great head -- they sure do get good head. Aroma leaves a bit to be desired. I get apple juice, light orange, floral notes, a bit spicy -- sort of a hodge podge of what I just used to call "hoppy" 4 years ago with a healthy dose of apples. Moderately sweet, a fair bit of caramel to carry the assertively bitter finish -- again, something that 4 or 5 years ago I would have praised as "balanced," back when I wanted all the badass punch to the throat hop bitterness with a sweet front end. Palate: medium body, average carbonation, texture somewhere between oily and creamy. Overall: I wish I was hanging around this scene 10 years ago -- I expect brews like these could have been a revelation, and probably paved the way for a lot of the amazing brews I already take for granted today. But divorced from FFFs history and pioneer status, its really hard for me to find much here thats exciting, or demanding of a repeat at $10/bomber.

tl; dr summary (borrowed from OldMrCrow): Solid, but Id rather have a 6er of Celebration.

Capa (3254) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - OCT 9, 2016
Clear pale orange with a white head. Loads of floral and pine notes, plenty of sweetness, light malt notes underneath. Mostly, this is a floral/pine bomb from start to finish. Medium bitterness. Very enjoyable.
