Just my opinion, wish it was still in production. I'm a Zombie Dust freek, but this is to date, my favorite TF beer. Just ran across four of these in a wine bar bottled last year October. Had a lot when they first came out, bought out every store I can find them in..more please. Lol.

22oz bottle dated 4/18/17 poured into a pint glass
A: Amber color with a 1+ finger head
S: Citrus (grapefruit + blood orange), a healthy dose of grass, and a bit of earth/herbs
T: Matches the nose adding some tropical fruit and malt notes to the citrus/grass/herbs
M: Medium-bodied, bitter/herbal
O: Yet another solid FFF IPA. Not my favorite of theirs, a bit redder (crimson) malt bill than many but still very pleasant

Pours a copper color with a big brown foamy head. Amazing retention and a ton of lacing. Head remains after five minutes.

Aroma is very balanced, with nothing overpowering. Citrus, pale malts, and possibly a tinge of alcohol, surprising giving its moderate ABV.

Taste follows the nose rather closely, with nothing dominating your attention. Reading the reviews, there are some people not picking up on the sea salt but I'm definitely getting it. Some earthy and pale malts, with citrus taking a backseat (a welcome characteristic in an IPA these days). Earthy malts really start to take over as it warms. Finished dry and a bit bitter, likely due to the salt presence.

Medium bodied, with moderate carbonation. Fairly drinkable for an IPA at 7%.

I've been seeking 3F in this region of WI for a while now, and this is my first entry (despite denying a few opportunities at Pride and Joy). Good beer, that definitely improves significantly as it warms. Not your typical IPA, definitely worth a try.
