look: 1 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 1 | overall: 1

Pours a clear golden color with just about no head. Appears limp and lifeless with very fine bubbles but lacing is just not possible. The aroma is bright and hoppy, with some citrus and semi tropical notes. The taste is very tropical, some mango, papaya and pith, and light malts. The body is very lightly carbonated and damn near flat. Awful. She's gone ladies and gentlemen. Different than the positive reviews, this is on draft. People swear by this, but it's kind of like drinking McDonalds Sweet Tea with added tropical fruit flavor ontap with a watery texture. Try a bottle based on the recent reviews.

12 oz bottle. Undated

Pours a dark amber orange with a thin, dense creamy white head. Minimal lace or retention. Old nose of leafy Citra, earth, dirt, and sweet, sweet bread. This is the problem with not dating bottles. You buy a bottle local to the brewer expecting it might be half way fresh and then... this happens. Flavor hints at what is probably a nice citrus-y IPA, but instead bready malt and grassy, dirty bitterness dominates with lingering citrus juiciness. I'll give FW benefit of doubt that this isn't best sample and revisit if I see this on draft. Otherwise, eww.
