The beer appeared a nice, clear amber color with a nice white head that did not have much retention. The beer gave off a nice light hop aroma, fruity perhaps, but not too overpowering. The beer had a good taste to it, but the hops, pine, were overpowering, as expected (perhaps I have been drinking too many beers that are not as hop forward lately). The beer was light and was really easy to drink. Overall, FFF has better IPAs, but this one was worth a shot.

On draft at Piece. Single pint poured into a nonic glass for $6, 3/4/2014.

App- Clear straw-yellow body, two finger white head with good retention, thick rings of lacing.

Smell- Crisp pale malts, some grapefruit, oranges with a dash of pine

Flavour- Similar to nose. Grapefruit balances out the caramel breadiness of the pale malts, with a bitter but not overwhelming pine finish.

Mouthfeel- Medium bodied, slightly watery and not all that resinous, drinkable without any hint of ABV. Aftertaste is pine bitterness that doesn't linger long.

Overall- Solid APA. That's about all I can say. There's nothing bad at all about this beer, but it didn't impress either. I would rather drink Alpha King or Zombie Dust any day.
