The wolf inside this pale ale is trying to walk upright. This bright and aromatic beer was brewed with our friends in the band Pig Destroyer.

Thanks so much to ErikO60102 for hooking me up with this big want of mine! Poured into a Haw River Farmhouse Ales teku glass. Bottleneck says 01/14/2015.

A- Pours a medium amber color with a 1/2 inch off-white head that retains well before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a mostly full sheet of surface foam. Semi-resilient lacing leaves a broken ring behind.

S- Juicy, tropical fruit aroma brings to mind passionfruit, guava and pineapple.

T- Fruity in the onset with a bitterness that is certainly present yet perfectly restrained. Alcohol is incredibly well-concealed and there's just enough malt backbone to provide complementary sweetness leading to an overall balance that's damn near perfect. After multiple sips, the bitterness starts to slowly creep in but still stays at bay for the most part. Great hop burps.

M- Tangy and bright with medium carbonation and a lightish body. There's also a bit of creaminess upon further inspection.

O- How is this 10.5%? I can't wrap my head around how deliciously smooth this is while also being so high gravity. Astonishing. Just when I thought I've encountered all the wonderful and complex layers of flavor a DIPA has to offer, something like this comes along to show me that there are still a lot of innovations left to be seen in the style.

The strong alcohol content gets lost in the awesome hops that blend piney/earthy flavor and citrus. FFF gets it right with a lot of hop forward beers and Permanent Funeral is my favorite of them all

A: slightly dark amber with some cloudyness. Poured a nice white head and very good lacing
S: Very strong hops with a lot of pine behind it. Slight smell of citrus and malt back. Very good smelling
T: Not my favorite. This is a much more piney and bitter ipa. You get smacked in the face with hops and has a strong biterness. Still tastey and has a delicious after taste. Slight booze
M: 3F beers always have that perfect carbonation but this one has a bit of a stickyness to it.

O: A very bitter and piney Ipa def not my favorite but still a great beer.
