Just a fairly average pale ale. Nothing remarkably good or bad about it.

A - Copper body with medium white head

S - Mild citrus and piney/floral notes.

T/F - Honey, citrus, and pine with thin/water feel. Light bitterness and mild alcohol finish.

O - Another good Pale Ale from 3 F's. I won't search for this one, but would gladly pick one up if it's available. Prost!

APPEARANCE: Bright orange and crystal clear. The head is nearly perfectly white and lingers for about 30 seconds. When it falls a few wisps cover the surface while a patchy lacing clings to the back of the glass.

SMELL: I could smell this one as soon as I popped the top. Unsurprisingly, this reeks of hoppy deliciousness; pine, flowers, a touch of grass, lemon, orange, grapefruit and a little tropical fruit. Basically everything good hops might smell like are showcased here.

TASTE: Apparently there is a lot of grass on the Space Station, cause it’s all over this one. A little orange, pine and tropical fruit provide just enough sweetness to balance out all that bitter grass, grapefruit and lemon.

MOUTHFEEL: Given the complexity of this beer I expected something much more balanced, but this has just barely enough sweetness to keep it from tipping over the edge. It remains dry and almost puckeringly bitter through and through. Medium to slightly bigger in body, this drinks a lot bigger than it is.

OVERALL: Like I just said, this drinks like a much bigger beer than it actually is. I would be very happy if every 6%, hoppy beer felt and tasted like this.
