What a great beer. Hoppy and citrusy with a subtle sweet malt taste. Just absolutely delicious.

Pours a hazy rich orange/amber copper color with more than a finger of an off-white head.

Aroma is really intense. Tons of stanky dankness, juicy pineapple, and grapefruit. I also get smaller doses of pine resin, tangerine, and mango. There's a nice sugary sweetness and very light toastiness coming from the malt, but it's barely there. It's all intense and vibrant hops.

Taste is also dominated by a big herbaceous dankness and juicy pineapple. The grapefruit is also there along with tangerine, papaya, and mango. It dries out nicely into the finish and brings with it a huge pine resin bitterness. Despite the intense hops, it stays balanced with a sugary/carmel sweetness that makes the beer extremely juicy when combined with the fruity hops. There's also some very slight toast as well from the overshadowed malt. Tastes like hop juice.

Medium body. Smooth and creamy with an oily and slightly sticky finish.

In true FFF style, this is one intensely hopped american amber. Despite all of it's insane hoppiness, it does have a refined balance to it. Like most of their beers, this is a winner for any hophead.

I recently had this beer at the FFF's brew pub on tap and out of bomber in my car as I waited to be seated. I had 3 minutes to get in after I received my text message that my table was available. I digress. The beer was smooth. I get a thick, full beer when I first taste it. Easy drink ability. Idk what I'm taking about. It's a fucking good beer.
