12 oz. bottle poured into a snifter. Says "FKA Hangin' Frank," which I think I've already had.
Appearance - Slight haze to a deep orange body. Small white head. Thin collar.
Smell - Grapefruit and pine hops. Toasty malt. Peanuts?
Taste - Bright grapefruit. And then peanuts. It's really odd, but I like it. Toasted malt finish with a strong bitterness.
Mouthfeel - Strong bitterness. Medium body.
Overall - Fascinating. And not what I remember Hangin' Frank tasting likr. What the hell is that peanut taste?

Picked this one up at local Meijer that just started carrying singles. No date on the bottle from short's yet (maybe someday).
A - Poured out clear burnt orange with a one finger off white head that died down relatively fast.
S - Bready, sweetness, rock candy, slight hop dankness, cracker, grassy. Not quit enough hop aroma in my opinion but it does have some nice qualities to it.
T - Bitterness with the same bready cracker taste, lemon, slight herbal hop, grassy, little orange. Not much for hops in this beer, it may not be very fresh.
M - Soft light body and goes down so well with a dry finish and a bitterness that builds on your palate. Really pleasant and I just keep wanting to take another sip.
O - I believe this bottle might not be fresh but I can not tell because Short's provides no date on the bottle. Pretty pleasant but I wish the hops were more present in here. A well made beer that is still pleasant and no sign of alcohol at all. Pick one up if you are a fan of the style and see if you can get a fresh one, cheers!
