I had high expectations for this local beer but was terribly disappointed. It was surprisingly light bodied and carbo-fizzy with absolutely no hop finish. I expect my IPA to taste like I'm chewing on a pinecone and this one tasted like a pine cone may have farted in it's general direction. Horribly underwhelming at best.

Melted crayons with a hint of some spice that I don't care to remember the name of.

On tap at First Draft. This is a lot more subdued than I expected. Very little aroma but plenty of bitterness-not a combo I like. Gets less abrasive as it warms but it's missing aroma and has gotten pretty malty. Kind of tastes old-but I have no frame of reference here.

Had it on tap at Kuma's in Chicago. Not impressed. Bizarre, malty, bread-like aftertaste takes away from the hop profile. Almost tasted like it came from a bad tap line. Not the best offering from the usually stellar 3 Floyds. I have a feeling you'll be able to find this one in stores easily. Not so much everything else they make.

Ok beer. A little bit of a hole in the middle of the palate, odd bitterness, a little disjointed, but drinkable nonetheless.

Crystal clear gold with some miniature bubbles rising from the bottom and a large, white foamy head leaving tons of coral lace.

Very light aromas of grapfruit, pine, cat, pineapple, peach, mango and graham.

Taste is mainly bready malt, with lightly spicy pine, which is a little astringent and bitter. It finishes with just a hint or promise of fruity sweetness, but there is no payoff. Tease.

Not the most enjoyable, drinkable brew by FFF despite the low ABV, and despite my other half stating she really does, in fact, find it immensely drinkable and more enjoyable than Zombie Dust. To me this is just a step beyond hoppy pils territory.

Looks like an unfiltered ipa
smells like sweet onions
tastes like, sweet onions and with a bit of grapefruit splashed on it. Hint of pine at the end
feels pretty smooth on the palate
overall I'd call it meh meh, don't love it. Maybe it fell off a cliff at about a month old, really shouldn't.
Not bad for a session, but I expect more from FFF.
