Quick review here.

Pours with a thin head, grows slightly. Normal for this level of alcohol. Some light lacing fading into legs around the glass. Beautiful hazy gold color, copper out of direct light.

Nose is heavy, heavy fruit, primarily mangoes and a hit of citrus. Reminds me of citra and mosaic, but I don't know if mosaic was even commercially available when this recipe was developed. Maybe not even citra! Anyway, delightful nose, does not belay any alcohol notes.

Sips very bitter up front, but quickly assuaged by the aromatic hopping: hints of pine and resin complement the more dominant fruit. The malt base seems entirely to accentuate the hops: nothing overwhelming, but full enough to even the alcohol and hops.

Overall, a very big beer that's incredibly well made. Perhaps a tad thin, but this is easily the best DIPA I've had in a while.

Was able to drink this bottle when it was only 7 days old.

Pours a rich and dark orange. Looks very much like a DIPA.

The nose is wonderful. So much citrus and pine. Pineapple and grapefruit. Very sweet smelling. Exactly what I look for in the aroma of an ipa.

The taste is absolutely amazing. This tastes like fresh, wet hops. The pure hop flavor shines through in this as much as any DIPA I have ever had (reminds me of Pliny in that way). Tropical fruits are on the tongue just like the nose: grapefruit, mango, sweet hone, etc. There is some pine and dankness as well. The perfect balance for me. As much as I love Dreadnaught, Alpha King, Zombie Dust, Arctic Panzer Wolf, etc., this is the best FFF offering imo. An absolutely stunning beer that you should definitely get your hands on.
