22oz, undated bottle. Unfortunate to not know how old she is, but here goes.

A - Deep amber, fairly clear pour. Supple pillowy white head. Very nice looking brew. Lacing is great.

S - Fruity hops dominate. Citrus, grapefruit and a big presence of green apple. Interesting fruit mix.

T - Big hops and bitterness. Green apple comes through as does the grapefruit and orange notes. Very nice sharp flavors. Can't really detect any malt.

M - Bitter and zesty. It's very well carbed. Not too thick or thin, right in the middle.

O - Great beer by 3F. Can't wait to grab some more....somehow...

Glowing copper-orange with little haze and small carbonation, white ring with no head, just lacey white bubbles.

Pineapple, mango. Sweet tropical fruits, not overpowering for a big DIPA like this.

Really sweet and smooth. Malts provide a rich and thick mouthfeel, with a resinous sweetness in the aftertaste. Very sweet, tropical DIPA. The hops are delicious but subdued in terms of bitterness.

22oz bottle poured into a snifter
A: Hazy orange with a 1/2 finger head that slowly dissipates.
S: Citrus, a hint of pine, flowers, white bread and a bit of spice.
T: Nice balance; grapefruit and pine from the hops, spice, a bit sweet, and malt to finish.
M: A little smooth, a little creamy, a little carbonation, a little spicy kick- a little goes a long way. Very pleasant on the tongue.
O: I really enjoyed this- probably drank it a bit too quickly. Another great 3F brew.
