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: Pours a cloudy golden honey color, very small head that fades fast, very light lacing

S: Strong notes of grapefruit, mango, pineapple, guava, and sweet rock candy. Just loads of sweet tropical fruit with a nice little hint of jasmine/rose in the back of the nose

T: Bitter grassy hops up front, slight tinge of citrus in the back, light bitterness that lingers

M: Medium viscosity, light carbonation, no booze

O: This was a very good fresh hop IPA, definitely something I would buy if it was available in my area

Bomber poured into a FFF tulip

A- Copper with golden hues. Slightly reflective but still clear enough to let you slightly see your hand on the other side. Poured a frothy white head that settled down to a thin layer of foam on the edges that leaves slight lacing

S - As I bring the beer to my nose, it is met with a strong, tropical hop nose with a slight pine edge to it. There is mango, pineapple, tangerine that give it a sweetness crossed with a slight pine and grassy edge. Great smelling beer.

T - At first, there is a slight pine and grapefruit hops which give it a slight bitterness. There is also a grassy, almost vegetal taste which reminds you of the freshness of the hops. This is not at all a hop bomb though as a solid malt backbone gives it a sweet pineapple and orange backbone. This helps keep it balanced and easy to drink

MF - Light with low carbonation. It is slightly astringent in the finish and leaves a slight hop resin that sits on the tongue

O - Another solid IPA by FFF that strikes a nice balance between hops and malt. It manages to be flavorful without being too heavy

Bomber poured into tulip glass.

A: Medium rusty orange color; inch of slightly off-white head

S: A bit of weediness; definitely hop dominated, but a small presence of grainy/bready malts. Orange peel...

T: Fresh, juicy hop burst. Honestly, just fantastic balance in this one. Despite the fresh wet hop presence, enough malt not to leave a puckering bitterness. The wet hop has an earthy taste to it, too.

M: Medium...just right.

O: Being in Chicago, I have easy access to most of the 3F offering. This might be my second favorite 3F beer (after ZD, of course!). It just works for me. Cheers...
