A- Pours a very hazy golden honey color with a thin and sticky white head.
S- Big hop assault in the nose, floral, very citric (especially grapefruit, but a bit of orange also), honey and pine.
T- Big juicy citrus up front with some grapefruit rind, pine and a bit of resin and hop oil, towards the finish the hops become a bit grassier and finish bitter and very dry, leaving a lingering bitterness on the palate for a pretty damn long time. Alcohol is relatively subdued for 9.00%, the white wine becomes more prominent towards the finish, especially as the beer warms up. Malt backbone provides some balancing sweetness, but it doesn't even stand a chance against the power of the hops.
M- Medium bodied, smooth bodied with robust carbonation, finishes bone dry.
O- A pretty damn good DIPA, definitely a good choice if you want to get your taste buds nearly seared off with hops. I'm a big fan of aggressively hopped DIPAs, so I love this beer, especially as it offers a bit more complexity than other hophead beers that just try to club you over the head with bitterness. However, it is a bit pricey (I paid $13 for a bomber). Heed the wolf, this beer is not for the timid.

Great cloudy golden orange color when poured. Very fragrant citrus nose. Good pine and citrus flavor upon first couple drinks. Slightly bitter after taste. As it sits and warms a bit I get a lot more of the pine taste. Overall very solid ipa and another winner from FFF.
