ACBF pour

A-Pours a lightly cloudy orange color with a wedge of white fluff.

S-Equal parts tropical/fruity and hempy/herby. Citrus and mango along with weed and earth. Smells like its gonna be bitter!

T-Bitter for sure. Coercive pine and grass with some pot. The harsher hop flavors are accompanied by some tangerine and pineapple hops. Malt is pale and unassuming-purposely.

M-Bitter. Lingering flavors. Medium bodied. Moderate carbonation.

O-A well made IPA that stuck out to me at the festival. A great introduction to Finback Brewery. (543 characters)

On tap at The Old Toad in Rochester, NY.

This one pours a dark reddish-orange with a half inch head, and a little bit of lacing.

Smells like grapefruit, with lots herbal pine and grassiness as well, and some slight maltiness.

This is a really good straight forward IPA. It's got a really nice bitterness to it, with sweet grapefruit and bitter rind, and some slight malty sweetness near the end.

This is medium bodied, with a very crisp and juicy mouthfeel, and a moderate level of carbonation.

Would drink this one a lot if it was more available around here- very tasty. (576 characters)

Nothing sharp or bitter about this. Has a creamy mouth feel and notes of citrus.

Not great. (93 characters)

Thank you Mr. Kevin

Brillant amber with a sticky white head. Looks as an IPA should. No more, nor less.

Smells like a hop bomb. Lots of nostril pleasing piney orange, pineapple and soft grapefruit. Makes my nose hairs dance. The hop profile transfers over into the flavor where the soft, velvety malt creates a orange hopsicle effect. Amply bitter but the hop focus is on flavor and aroma.

Stoked to attend the brewery opening this weekend. (444 characters)
