Pours a slightly hazy orangey amber. Tons of fluffy white head that had hints of peach color to it. Amazing lacing and the head held fantastically. Aroma is bright tangerine, apricot, sweet grass and floral. Mildly bitter. Taste is much like aroma. Tangerine and apricot followed by the grassy floral notes. Medium body and carbonation; but a creamy quality to the body as well. Very good beer.

Creamy, soon collapsing, head, leaving thick sheets of lace on the glass. The brew has a slightly hazy, golden-amber color.

A bready maltiness accompanies fruity, floral hops in a perfect sense. While mango, peach, and ripe grapefruit build a very convincing hop-impression, this gets pushed a lot further by the discreet, enjoyable malt tones, resulting in a very smooth, balanced impression.

The flavor echoes those same sentiments, with orange and lime cutting through smooth, dough malts, carried by a lively, slighty metallic carbonation. The interplay between earthy silkiness and metallic, citraic bitterness is the most convincing part of this IPA, as both parts build up a fascinating dramaturgy.

The finish shows a short glance of evenness, until a bitter, slick hoppy bitterness flows down the back of the palate, with malty hints still shining through. As smooth as it began, in the end the tongue almost dries out to fruity, dry hops, while it remains its drinkability.

From 01/10/14 notes. Had an 8 oz. glass of this on tap at Torst in Brooklyn, NY.

Pours a somewhat hazy deep orange color with one inch of off white head and moderate carbonation evident. Maltier than expected, lots of fruity malts, candied sugar, bready malts, wheat, grains, dough, floral notes, and sweet fruity malts. Medium body and moderate carbonation.

Overall a decent APA, but I was a bit disappointed. Very very malty, and I guess I was expecting more hops to it. Lots of fruits, wouldn't seek it out again.

This beer was okay. Tastes like a FFF brewed beer. I thought it was over carbonated which made it less enjoyable.

Pours brilliant orange with a lemon tinged two finger head of foam, medium carbonation.

Way more floral notes than I was expecting, citrus, melon, and a hint of hop resins.

Notes of citrus, bread-like and caramel malt backbone, and very floral and earthy.

Mouthfeel is light-medium bodied, with medium carbonation. Finishes dry.

Overall, not the hop bomb I was looking for from a 3F collab, but glad to try it regardless.

Citrusy, floral, and a bit resiny in aroma. Flavor is resiny, with soft citrusy underpinnings and a fairly bitter finish.
