Had on-tap at the Yard House in Cincinnati. Poured into a pint glass.

L: Mostly clear light golden pour with 2 fingers of foamy white head. Decent lacing.

S: Spent grains and tropical fruits.

T/F: Mild bread/grain malt base with a surprisingly fruity/juicy hop profile. Citrus and mango... a bit of pineapple and honey. Crisp... very drinkable and light on the bitterness.

O: A high quality APA somewhat reminiscent of Zombie Dust. Fruity and highly drinkable. Overall well done.

Picked up a single from The Keg, New Albany IN. Bottled 1/17/05

A: Damn, this is a pretty beer. First thing I notice is the huge three finger head. So frothy, so inviting. Pours a copper gold. Not too dark. It's just a pretty beer. Laces the glass the whole way down as I drink it.

S: Citrus, strong melon even after almost 4 months. I think I catch a whiff of sour dough bread. Maybe I just want some sour dour bread, who knows. But this is a good smell, doesn't assault you with strong hops.

T: I am not getting the stronger bitter as some other reviews. Maybe it is because it is four months old? Blood orange, light grapefruit, melon, apricot, some light rind on the finish. Not too much resin, clean, dry. Light malt and biscuit, just the right amount. Refreshing.

F: Light carbonation. Clean finish, not very oily at all. Dry on the end. Isn't bombing out my tastebuds.

O: I was wanting to give 4.25, but then I thought as a session this really is better than that, a 4.50. Balanced yet complex with nuance, satisfying verses some of the competition. Another strong offering from FFF.

Semi-opaque gold, nice fluffy cap. Aroma is classic pale ale - wheat malt, grassy hops, a little orange rind. Taste follows suit, malt backbone is pretty dry and crisp like a German, hops are a bit citrusy (Amarillo / mosaic) with a little chalky yeast. Good session beer

Pours a slightly hazy yellow gold color with about a finger of white head. Smells of tropical fruit, citrus, and caramel, just enough aroma to be noticed but not overly strong. Tastes tart and juicy, kind of like pink grapefruit juice, moderately bitter which lasts throughout and lingers for a little while. A little note of tropical fruit towards the end. Medium body. Easy drinker, flavorful for the abv range. If it was regularly available here (I picked it up on a trip out west) I'd probably regularly pick it up as a late spring till early fall beer.
