Guess I should have tried this one first before another of FW's stronger IPA offerings (i.e. Double Jack). Oh well.
A: Poured a straw yellow, slightly dark, with some nice, white foam that clings to the glass.
S: Aromas of hops, mostly piney and somewhat fruity. I get pineapple and orange peels. A little spicy.
T: Lighter malts with a nice hop flavor that comes a little before & after the pale malt tastes.
M: Felt this was a little light in feel, but refreshing nonetheless.
O: Pretty good offering but I'm a little letdown from all the FW hype I've been hearing living on the East Coast. Maybe my expectations got the better of me. I may have to edit my review sometime down the line after trying more FW beers.
Serving type: on-tap
