Appearance: Beautiful golden orange color.

Smell: Good bittery pine.

Taste: Unfortunately this has the irking it's a little past prime. Still some fantastic pine. It's not blowing my face off with hops but it's obvious it's well put together. A good amount of bitter thrown in there. The bitterness/sweetness ratio is fantastic.

Mouthfeel: Spot on for the style.

Overall: This beer is very well put together. I got it as an extra, and i have the irking it's a little past it's prime. Still, it is a fantastic IIPA but I'd love to try it fresh.

Pours a darker pale yellow / golden yellow. Nose is full of fruity mangos and tropical notes with a bit of citrus. Taste starts off with sweet citrus with some caramel malt. These are quickly overtaken by a load of tropical citrus flavors. Finishes with a lingering tropical bitterness with a touch of caramel. Really nice DIPA here.

This is an IIPA

Poured a nice head with good retention

The smell was unbelievable. Tropical fruit, grapefruit, mango, tangerine

The hops are so well balanced in this brew throughtout the taste. They continue throught out the finish

Perfect body to allow the hops to shine

This is a must have.

22oz, undated bottle. Unfortunate to not know how old she is, but here goes.

A - Deep amber, fairly clear pour. Supple pillowy white head. Very nice looking brew. Lacing is great.

S - Fruity hops dominate. Citrus, grapefruit and a big presence of green apple. Interesting fruit mix.

T - Big hops and bitterness. Green apple comes through as does the grapefruit and orange notes. Very nice sharp flavors. Can't really detect any malt.

M - Bitter and zesty. It's very well carbed. Not too thick or thin, right in the middle.

O - Great beer by 3F. Can't wait to grab some more....somehow...
