Clear orange, lighly tan head, nice lacing anda few floaties. Fresh, and very fresh, fruity/hoppy aroma. Big hop flavors roll over some nice malts with a big hop bitter finish. The hops linger nicely. Very creamy mouth feel. Very drinkable and quenching. THis is a great session brew, and a welcome addition to my cellar!

Notes from 10/13/10

A:Pours a solid non see thru ruby/orange color with a solid fluffy white head that slowly dies down, leaving nice lacing down the glass

S:Strong citrus and fruit hops coming thru in the nose along with some sweet caramlized malts. Very inviting

T:Just as smell detects sweet malts up front making way for a explosion of hops
in the middle and backend of the drink. A nice bite of hops lingers on the tongue.

M:A solid full body with excellent carbonation. Nice stickiness is left lingering around
on the palate

D:Sometimes I take for granted that FFF is readily available to me. Great smell/taste,
easy drink, and hands down the best APA I have had so far (to me its more like, and
better than most, IPA's) Another great brew from those bros in Munster.
