3.41/5  rDev -8.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a pint glass out of a 22oz bomber.

Pours a slightly hazy medium copper with a one finger fluffy white head. Pretty average head retention and lacing.

Aroma is lacking on this one, I feel. Some light airy fruit in the way of pineapple and mango along with a slight bit of mint. A touch of bread but it is faint. Just weak overall.

The flavor has a little more going for it but not much. Much more hop character and some unusual notes in the way of mint, bubblegum, and even strawberry. More light bread malt in the background along with a high bitterness. I do love the mouthfeel; very silky and light with a dry finish.

Overall, this beer is unique but a little uninspiring. I love the story behind the hops and they do provide some unique flavors but overall, I feel a little more could have been done to make this beer outstanding.

2.45/5  rDev -34.5%
look: 4 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Cloudy dark side honeyed pour. One and a half inch white head with staggered lacing.

I smell nothing but wet glass.

Unpleasant metallic bitter hop leaf and that doesn't even last long. Malt is there in simple form.

Carbonation is playful and lighter bodied.

Whaaa Whaaa?!? Got this "fresh?" off the shelf last week. As I'm reviewing this I can't help but to think FFF is better than this. Sorry boys but this is a stinker, juz saying. Bad bottle-maybe. Man-o-yawn.
