On tap in tulip at Bodega on 10/18/11

Evenly hazed honey gold and amber. 1/4th inch head is gone in no time. Dainty soapy swirl and a very thin collar.

Dense hop aromas - pine and grapefruit followed by tangerine, lemon and hints of orange. Cracker malts and a sugar note. Juicy with a touch of booze.

Wow. Clawing, scathing bitterness is unleashed with one sip. Pine and sharp blasts of grapefruit mangle the palate. Finishes harsh with aspirin bitterness and grapefruit pith. Very dry, too. Sugary bread and fledgling cracker are nothing but an ignored speed bump. Malts become bigger over time. This is rough; starts out promising but falls apart entirely.

Hop flavor is trumped by bitterness; a painful, tingling sensation lingers. The only way to describe the feel is "oww." As if the bitterness wasn't enough, carbonation is brutal and searing. Medium body and a bit slick, I think.

What an undeniable let down; I'm so glad I didn't buy a bottle. It wants to be good, but this is just bad. There's no other way to put it.

On-tap at the Boiler Room. Thought it was time to review after having several times.

A- Pours a hazy gold with a reddish hue. A few bubbles make up a thin cap, but no head or lacing.

S- Pine needles, pine cones and pine tree bark. Tropical and citrus hops are present as well as a touch of caramel malt.

T- Taste like you are eating a bowl of pine needles with grapefruit juice. One of the most pine forward DIPA's I've tasted. Tropical notes with pineapple and mango are mixed in, but the pine is pretty dominate.

M- Low carbonation and medium body. Finishes dry and bitter.

O- This is just a damn bitter DIPA and really doesn't attempt to be balanced at all. It's another solid IPA from FFF, but I prefer Dreadnaught over this.
