look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
12 oz bottle marked 4/12/12 poured into a pint glass.
Appearance: Clear amber with an orange hue. Thin white head and nice lacing.
Smell: Citrus hops take over with a touch of floral notes. Smells typical of a good West Coast IPA.
Taste: Citrus and notably grapefruit flavors dominate the palate. Sweet malt backing smooths out the hops and then finishes with a lingering bitterness that sits on the tongue. Just a bit of pine flavor as it finishes.
Mouthfeel: Body on the lighter side for an IPA. Alcohol is subtle despite the abv and makes for a refreshing drink.
Overall: FW has not disappointed me yet. A refreshing West Coast IPA that showcases the citrus hops.
Serving type: bottle
