Congratulations! Welcome to flavor country. This most recent FFF’s pale ale has just the malt backbone to support an explosive juicy hop profile derived from a new blend of proprietary hops. Cheers.

Appearance: Semi-clear golden with prodigious head of fine white carbonation. Perfect, detailed, dense lace.

Aroma: Perfumed, deeply floral hops. Beautiful!

Taste: Tangy grapefruit and citrus hops, with a spicy, bitter feel. I also get some toffee malts clinging on underneath, but this one’s really all about the hops. “Proprietary” hops here mean a new strain maybe? It’s definitely a unique take on an “American Session Ale” or “American Pale Ale”. Hops fiends rejoice, here is another winner from 3F.

Pours a somewhat hazy golden yellow with a slight orange hue, plenty of frothy white that provides gentle lacing down the glass.

Mango, kiwi, apricot, and pineapple notes burst up the nostrils, deserves a snifter pour.

Juicy and tropical hops galore, kiwi, pineapple, and passionfruit are swell.

Mouthfeel is a tropical blast.

Overall, another damn good APA from 3F.

12oz. bottle in a nonic pint glass.

A- Poured a light copper-orange color, quite translucent and bubbly. A near 2F white head leaves lots of sticky lacing.

S- Caramel apple sweets and floral and herbal hops. Hemp.

T- Sweet malt and light hop flavors. Honey, juicy fruits. Flavorful.

M-It's light but there are enough carbonation and malt to prop some body. Chewy hop juice-i-ness.

O- More than a light beer with hops. It has body.

In terms of appearance and smell, FFF makes the best beers I've ever had. The beers actually have the same smell a newly-opened bag of hops. This beer was no exception. Here goes:

A: Very good, Pours a three-fingered head that leaves a ton of lacing. Beer is a cloudy, dark yellow, however, and this lessens the score somewhat. Also not a lot of carbonation.

S: Like I said, just like opening up a bag of hops. Very grassy and earthy - just like Alpha King. Add lots of citrus and some tropical underpinnings and you pretty much summarize the rest of the smell.

T: As always from FFF, impeccably well-balanced. Some honey and caramel malt backed up by a very juicy collection of hop flavors. Lots of grass, lemon, and tropical fruit.

F: Not a lot of carbonation for such a light-bodied beer. A little bit of a drawback, if you ask me.

O: A great APA. Not as good as Alpha King, but still good nonetheless.
