#1 Drink fresh hop beers fresh. Oct/Nov/Dec is the window for this one. Don't bother in July, Sept, etc. PSA: Please don't trade or review old beer. Your tastebuds will thank you.

Trying this as fresh as can be, figured it deserved a re-review... An extra psychedelic label this year.

Puffy two finger head that stands above the rim of the glass. 2nd pour renders the hazy orange beer murky with yeast and hop particulates. The foam is creamy and retention is good. A crown of uneven lacing decorates the inside of the glass.

First whiff is tropical, with some dank resiny herbals seizing the nostrils. Fresh grass & weed clippings, very pungent and fresh.

Orange peel, pine sap, herbal woody resins. Max IBU bitterness levels, as FFF is known for. A very dry finish, just shy of aspirin like bitterness, leaving a sticky and bone dry feel. Pretty full bodied but easy to put back. Somehow seems stronger than 5.5%. I stand corrected from my previous review, don't know how fresh it was then, but it was the 1st appearance of this wet hop FFF brew.

Way overpriced for what it is...a session ale akin to the likes of Alpha King.

Amber tone with plenty of webby lacing. Aroma is fresh floral and citrus, appealing, but not over the top in any way.

Grapefruit rind, pale malt, a little grainy but full bodied. Clean feeling overall, long hoppy finish. Not much else to say about this one, except that it bears the trademark 3F stamp of serious hoppage.

My Little Pony style label, it's great, definitely one of the most offbeat labels i've ever seen. I'm guessing it has something to do with the magical, transitive properties of fresh hops, once they get inside your head.

A very lively, fresh beer. Mouthfeel suggests fresh hop oil coating the toungue with a bit of prickle. Hopping is bold but not overbearing, wiht a slightly floral note atop herb flavors. Quite smooth and drinkable - in a word (two, actually) - well done.
