12oz bottle poured into a tulip.
Appearance- Dark amber. Crisp, white head.
Aroma- Strong malts up front with a distinct pine smell towards the middle with citrus notes that linger throughout.
Flavor- A pleasant bitter taste that is immediately followed with the pine up front. The citrus notes come through towards the finish balancing the beer off nicely.
Mouthfeel- Bitterness throughout, medium body, high carbonation. Wonderful finish.
Overall- This is one loaded pale ale - not for the faint of heart. Full of wonderful hop notes and a distinct malt profile. Very bitter for a pale ale, but not unpleasant. Certainly one of the better pales out there. Highly recommended.

Poured from tap into nonic pint at the brewery. Deep caramel color with a nice foamy head. Piney hop and sweet caramel aroma. taste is bitter hops with some sweet caramel finish. For me the bitterness is just too much. Its actually way too bitter for my likes; which is the norm for FFF. Huge malt and bitter profile - and lots of people like that, just not me. Good brew for sure, I just don't get the hype on this one.

A: Cloudy deep orange leading to amber. Good full finger of off white head. Sticky lacing sheeting left on the glass.
S: Earthy hops. Sweet malts. Pine. Smells bready but still fresh. Getting more earthy hops than the citrus and grapefruit.
T: Nice punch of pine hops. More middle of the road than I remembered, but its been a while. Dry finish.
M: Medium bodied.
