Bottle. Purchased at Riley’s in Madison. Poured into a tulip glass a clear, medium colored copper with a light white head that collars around the glass. I would say the aroma is rather mild with some subtle notes of citrus and light biscuit. Maybe a little honey like aroma as well. Light citrus sweet notes up front with some lingering bitterness. Probably could be classified as a pale as well as the hops make up the buld of the flavors. Medium/light mouthfeel. Pretty enjoyable.

12 oz bottle poured into a Sierra Nevada imperial pint.
No date or info.

A - Steady carbonation feeds the well-retained, off-white head. Collars of lace adorn the glass above the golden yellow, crystal clear brew.

S - Big on the hops, I wouldn't expect any less from FFF. This one has a Cascade dry-hopped aroma of earthy pine. Biscuity malt provides just enough backbone to balance it out. A touch of butter comes through on the finish.

T - Refreshing citrus lends lemon-lime notes to the brew with an accompanying pine bite. Pale and lightly biscuity malt provide minimal characteristics beyond balance.

M - Light-bodied and crisp with a citric bite that's compounded by the sharp carbonation. Clean, dry, lightly bitter finish.

O - A very good pale across the board, FFF, as a company and it's employees, has an attitude I don't particularly care for, bit I can certainly get on board with this sessionable, crisp brew.

A somewhat golden orange with copper highlights. A touch of head, but nothing outstanding but what little there is leaves nice lacing.

Classic tropical fruit and grape fruit bitterness that three floyds has just mastered. A bit of a gram cracker and caramel malt, light but there.

Wow...I do not recall this one being THIS hoppy. This is darn right intense stuff and I'm loving it. The finish is so clean and light, this could easily be a beer you down 2-3 growlers of over the course of a day of football viewing or something else. Just a perfectly drinkable beer.

I've already covered mouth feel to a degree, but more carbonation would help a nd i have a feeling the bottled version would resolve this.

I really can't say enough good stuff. It isn't overly flavorful with malt or sugar. It is just extremely tasty for the hop heads (if you don't like hops just avoid) and a nice drinking beer.

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Thanks to storminspank for this.

A: Darker yellow with light orange tint and a slight haze. Half finger white head with decent retention and lacing.

S: Citrus and floral hops with a good blend of caramel in it. Grapefruit that isn't over bearing with touches of a nice soapy floral hop. Well blended aroma.

T: Caramel throughout the mouth. Again the grapefruit with touches of floral notes. Not real bitter.

M: Light body. Medium carbonation. Very crisp and slightly dry.

O: A good pale ale. Probably easily accessible in the distribution area so it would be a good go to beer.
