Served on-tap in a clear waisted glass at The Publican (Chicago, IL).

A: Medium-amber with soft 1/2-finger cap of foamy light beige head with good retention and plenty of lacing.

S: Explosive nose of grapefruit, pineapple, mango, and passionfruit with big floral aromas as well. There is some resiny components as well. The maltiness plays second fiddle.

T: The flavor is very hoppy but not astringent and just moderately bitter which allows the big fruity pineapple, grapefruit, and mango notes be maximally enjoyed. The maltiness provide more crystal sweetness, although it is very light, like 20L, along with a fair dose of Munich to supply some light breadiness. I agree that this tastes more like an APA, but it is very aggressively hopped for aroma and flavor with a restrained bitterness.

M: Incredibly drinkable with a moderately dry finish along with light-to-medium body and soft carbonation to give a creamy and lighter than expected feel.

O: A wonderful beer that I was very glad to get a chance to try on-tap. It drinks right on the edge of APA-IPA styles but feels more like a hefty APA than a light IPA, although neither of those would be wrong. A superb beer and I was surprised to find out it was brewed exclusively with Citra -- need to try brewing one of those soon!

look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Murky and cloudy. Thin head. Man I love murky!

S: Citrus. Orange and Orange ring. Tangerine. Lemon rind. Slight pineapple. Slight lime. Vanilla and butterscotch. Buttery.

T: Let down from the smell. Much maltier than expected. Tangerine rind.

M: Medium bodied. Slight chew. But a really nice coat on the tongue.

O: Maybe I'm just not an APA guy. Actually I'm not....much rather a big IIPA. Sorry guys. This review is weighted.

thanks redliner8!!!

A- Pours a clear copper into my 3f Chalice with a 2 finger white head that quickly dissipates to an etched lace.

S- Citrus at first following by tropical fruits as it warms slightly. By far the best nose on a beer that I have ever experienced.

T- Citrus burst on the front end followed by tropical fruits just like the nose. Finishes extremely clean despite the huge hop wallop it packs. Again, this beer is spectacular and at the top of its class.

M- Thinner mouthfeel which can be a positive or negative depending on how you look at it. It is very approachable unlike some hop bombs. I appreciate it because it doesn't leave my tongue feeling abused, but I can see where some would rank it slightly lower for this.

I have yet to have a FFF that wasn't near or at the top of its class. I can't drive past Munster without stopping, it is an illness.
