Poured from a 22oz bomber into a small mug.

Orange peel liquid with a rocky yet active crown of shock white foam. Dense funnel-webs of lacing coat the sides. Good retention.

Pure fresh hops in the nose - floral, fruity, herbaceous, and dank. A tiny bit of cotton candy or caramel malt adds contrast.

Starburst, Jolly Ranchers, bubble gum, and candied flowers in the palate entry suggest a wide melange of fruit and perfume. An almost sour citrus note suggest kumquat skins backed by a full bitterness from grapefruit pith. The flavor evolves into a grassy catty finish. Rosewater and faint pine in the aftertaste which continues to shape-shift for quite some time.

Medium-light bodied, well carbonated yet soft and vaguely oily.

A uniquely floral wet-hop ale, this is memorable, though I prefer some West Coast alternatives...

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

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
