look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a clear deep-amber with a cream colored head.

Smells of floral hops with a bit of citrus and pine.

Taste upfront is bitter with some floral hop characteristics. The bitterness subsides into a malty finish with floral and earthy flavors present. Moderately dry finish with a slight bitter aftertaste.

Medium body with moderate carbonation.

Drinkability is good--the bitterness is well balanced with the malty finish and the floral hints complement the bitterness nicely.

Serving type: bottle

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Rec'd as an extra in a trade with a generous BA thanks!

Appearance: Pours an attractive medium iced tea (slightly more red than brown) that is transparent and capped by a nice 2 finger off white crown that displays good retention and lace.

Smell: Slightly faded citrus hops (mainly grapefruit), some floral hops, a touch of white pepper, and a nice combo of fruity malt / caramel malt.

Taste: Hop bitterness up front is swept away by a dash of caramel that yields to a fruity malt and toasted malt wave. The finish has a small hop kiss. Good stuff.

Mouthfeel: Fairly active carbonation which helps because the medium body is the slightest bit syrupy.

Drinkability: I'd score it higher if it weren't for the mouthfeel.

Another good FFF brew that I'm really happy I got to try! I would have loved to sample this fresh.
