Notes / Commercial Description:
This beer is brewed during the hop harvest with a portion of unkilned or “wet” hops fresh off the vine.

This celebration of the hop harvest has intense tropical fruit, citrus and spicy accents that showcase the complexity of the hops we all love.

A - Light Gold
S - Fruits/Bread
T - Fruit/Bread with a fairly strong hop overtones.
M - Light & crisp in the mouth.
O - Certainly has that signature FFF taste, but seems a little more raw and less refined than some of their similar offerings.

22 ounce bottle into signature teku glass, bottled on 9/24/2015. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy orange/amber color with a 2 finger dense and rocky off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of big tangerine, pineapple, grapefruit, peach, apricot, mango, melon, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, caramel, toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Fantastic aromas with great balance and complexity of juicy citrus/tropical hops and moderate dark/bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big tangerine, pineapple, grapefruit, peach, apricot, mango, melon, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, caramel, toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Moderate amount of pine/citrus rind bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of tangerine, pineapple, grapefruit, peach, apricot, mango, lemon/orange rind, pine, caramel, toasted bread, and floral/grassy hop earthiness on the finish for a while. Incredible complexity, robustness, and balance of juicy citrus/tropical/piney hops and moderate dark/bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero astringent bitterness after the finish. Moderate dryness from bitterness; with increasing dryness and bitterness through the glass as more hop oils linger on the palate. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately sticky/resinous, and creamy/bready balanced mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming lingering after the finish. Overall this is an incredible harvest IPA. All around awesome complexity, robustness, and balance of juicy citrus/tropical/piney hops and moderate dark/bready malt flavors; and very smooth and easy to drink. A highly enjoyable offering.

From a 22 oz bottle. First time I tried this was on tap, and it was glorious then...and it is glorious now. I don't really know how to judge "look". It looks beautiful. It pours like a beautiful American IPA. Golden amber, in my house, in a glass for me. Smell is piney, fresh, and yes, glorious once again. So the taste I put a fat fiver on that. Fresh hopped, low carbonation, slightly creamy, great balance with a citrus and mild bitter finish. Damn, I wish they could pack more oz in this 22 oz capacity bottle. I only have one bottle, and that is a crying shame. Feels pretty good now that I am 90% done with this beauty. More please.

Amber with a rose hue and a persistent off-white collar originating from a moderate head.

A little pungent in aroma, with grapefruit zest, honey, and a pine needle blanketed forest floor. Cat, rug, and graham arise as it warms.

In flavor I get cornbread malt, floral elements, grapefruit, and light pine.

Light, crisp, soft and fizzy. Tangy and frothy mid palate finishing semi-dry.

Most recent review on a one week old bottle 10/8/2016.
