on tap @ 3F
A clear copper color with a massive dense white head that sticks around and leaves incredible lacing. Looks really nice to me. The smell is just pure resinous hops. Not much of a malty presence at all in the nose...maybe I'll have to wait to smell it once the head dies down a bit, but I expect to be able to detect some sweetness. The first thing I notice in the taste are the moderate to medium esters. It dominates the hops somewhat in the flavor department. Maybe this only had a heavy dose of dry-hopping - maybe move some back to flavor. There's also a spicy herbal flavor, which provides a very dry tartness, next to some chalky, powdery flavors. This is the first time I've actually noticed what is called 'soapiness' in a beer - I can taste it here, like hand soap or something, though it's not incredibly prominent. The malt is toasty and crackery at best, though I kind of expected bready and sweet to back this up. The hop flavors finally return in the finish. The mouthfeel is actually pretty good, but not great. It's a bit light bodied, and dry, but occasionally feels kind of full because of the creamy head. The drink is kind of slow, but good. A nice and enjoyable beer, kind of middle of the range in ABV. This is probably not the best of 3F's work, but still quite better than many beers of the same style (though this kind of defies complete classification - the bottle says mild, here says APA, kind of fits in both).
