4.1/5 rDev -4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Serving Type: 22oz Bomber poured into a Tulip Glass.
A: A deep, yellowish-oragnge color. Hazy, yet light is still able to pass through easily. About 1 inch of head that holds decently. When gone, lots of lacing is visiable.
S: Fantastic!! Sweet, citric hop aroma. Some pine notes as my nose pulls away from the tulip glass.
T: Very bitter! More pin in flavor with less sweetness than expected. I do taste hints of sweet maltness.
M: Medium bodied brew. Very refreshing for such a cold night in Joliet. Not as much carbonation as when I had this fresh in October.
D: Love the wet hop brews! And this is one of the best examples that I have had the chance to try.

Thanks, Todd! This is apparently an October release, delivered to me 3 months later. Joy! Poured out of a 22oz bottle into a tulip glass.
This is not apricot in color - rather, it's golden amber, with a fluffy white head that rises decently to the top of the glass and dissipates after about 15 minutes later into a modest ring. Bubbles do show in a relatively effervescent manner, but they too die down. Slightly cloudy, with a good deal of sediment. Usually FFF delivers in terms of appearance - not so much here.
Smells extremely mild, which is especially strange given that this is a wet hop beer. Big notes of honey coated with lemon rinds, light grapefruit, and pine. Some pepper and indistinguishable floral notes. Yes, it's a bit old at this point, but this honestly should have held up better after about 90 days, especially for a wet hop beer. There's a brief green bell pepper vegetal notes underneath, as well as some earthiness and toffee, but otherwise honey is ridiculously predominant here. Could be better.
The flavor continues the trend set from the aroma, providing a bomb of honey, toffee, and faded citrus varieties. Grapefruit, pine, lemon rinds, and maybe some apricot, but otherwise this seems to be a shell of what it once was or could be. There's an acrid earthiness that melds with the honey to slightly disconcerting results, as well as a brief peppercorn/bell pepper finish that is slightly unique but fizzles out with the extra honey topping the entire process. Finishes with toffee as well as a slight buttery flavor, but miraculously crisp and clean at the finish. Not difficult to drink, and the alcohol and carbonation is just right, but it's really underwhelming overall.
Man, FFF is really hit or miss with their seasonal releases, it seems. I've had Dreadnaught 2-3 months old and it was drinking fine. This probably started to turn about 1-2 months in, and I KNOW that FFF is better of making a beer that holds up better than this. At the same time, something tells me that, just like most wet hop beers, this should have been a tap only release and the bottling was somewhat volatile in maintaining its freshness. Approach with caution, especially if you're aware of when it was bottled.
