12 oz bottle poured into pint glass

A: Clear, golden amber color, typical pale ale color, great head though, off white, sticky, dense and frothy, .5 finger when settled

S: Amazing pungent hops, fruit and pine mixed, bits of tropical fruit

T: Actually a little mild for an APA especially from FFF, has great flavor though, just not that bitter punch I was anticipating, pine dominates flavor but doesn't taste dank or resiny, pleasant malt provides sweetness throughout, super easy to drink, but missing a touch of depth

M: Good body, easy and refreshing, carb sting up front but maybe a little flat in the finish

O: A super easy drinking APA, I love the pine and fruit combination

From the bottle:
This pours a pale golden in the glass. There’s a mild hoppy aroma to it with a nice toasted biscuit note on the nose. There’s more of that tasty hop bite on the flavor with a toasted biscuit on the finish like a treat. I found that this had a citrusy tropical fruit hop aroma and flavor emerge as it opened. Guava? Pineapple? Under the citrus it’s lemony more than orange, with a wonderful crispness to it. It has just the right amount of bitterness to round it out. Sessionable and so flavorful. What a winner!

From the growler:
This pours a clear caramel-amber in color with thin foam. There’s a nice and mild yet hoppy aroma. Makes sense since it’s a hoppy ESB. The flavor has a pleasing bitterness with a mellow
honeyed biscuit finish and a warmly rounded flavor. Caps off with a sharp pine bitter note on the end. Definitely one I’d enjoy again as an almost-sessionable (in the 5% ABV range) ale.
