Pours dark gold with orange tints. Aroma, pop of citrus hops. Some orange and mango. A bit of pine. Taste- has a bit of mint on the front. Also kind of a little clover you'd pick from the yard and eat as a kid. Little more of those citrus flavors. Some bitterness in the end here. Doesn't linger. Finishes a bit sweet. Overall, fresh, and you can almost taste the whole cone. It has a warming quality to it. showed the harvest off well. (Born Yesterday was better though NYD)

On tap at Stone Tap in Hudson, Wisconsin. 12 oz. pour in a shaker glass.

Appearance: Color is a bright amber orange. Moderate amount of bubbles and a solid finger of off white head which settles into a thin creamy patch.

Smell: A juicy and earthy hop forward aroma with a scent of citrus fruit and pine. Big citrus hop scent of grapefruit, orange peel, lemon, tangerine, passion fruit, mango, and pineapple. Earthy and floral hop scent of pine resin and grass. Malt hints of caramel and cracker along with yeast. A very good juicy aroma.

Taste: Like it smells, a very juicy and earthy hop driven taste with notes of citrus fruit and pine. Upfront citrus hop notes of orange peel, grapefruit, mango, lemon, tangerine, and passion fruit along with some pineapple. Earthy hop notes of pine resin and grass. Background malt notes of caramel, cracker, and grains with some yeast. A great juicy taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate level of carbonation. Juicy, oily, and drying.

Overall: A great Fresh Hop IPA. Big citrus fruit and pine hop flavor.

Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a Snorkel glass.
Bottled 09-28-16.

Appearance: Clear, filtered light orange body, with a 1/2 finger's worth of head, from a semi-aggressive pour. Head has a soft pillowy look to it. Tons of lacing!

Aroma: Plenty of citrus: orange and grapefruit. Pineapple. Some soft pine needles.

Taste: This has a lot going on. Grapefruit and pine, some papaya sweetness and some pineapple, without the acidity. All the flavors are soft and compliment each other without one dominating more than the other.

Mouthfeel: Full mouthfeel without being abrasive. A nice amount of carbonation.

Overall: A truly awesome beer, but coming from 3 Floyd's there was no doubt about that! Love these wet hop ales! They can be so complex and yet simple at the same time. This is one of those delicious beers that you don't want to end or the bottle to stop flowing.

Huge thanks to Hopgoddess312 for this one!

Big Thanks to Hopgodess312 for this 3F beauty.
Pours sunburnt orange in hue. Puffy white head leaps upward, and settles to a finger or so. Nice, sticky lacing.
Smell is sweet citrus at first with a hint of sweet acidic pineapple. A bit of pine sap comes through as well.
taste is much more complex. The cities comes through more specifically as tangerine, the tropical notes are pineapple meets mango. But then a nice peach comes in as well. Juicy, wet, spot on ripe peach. Then a bit of green vegetal. And again a hint of pine going in the direction of dank. The malt comes through lite and sweet. Nothing is over the top.
Mouthfeel is full enough, finishes between creamy and slick.
A very well-rounded "wet" harvest IPA.

Deep yellow to amber in color, mostly clear. Ample off white head with very good retention. A pleasant but not overpowering aroma. Floral, grassy, spicy, faint tropical fruit notes. Nice malt character as well. Taste follows exactly, floral, grassy, spicy. Floral notes linger, along with some moderate bitterness. Medium-light body, moderate carbonation. Very nice fresh hop IPA from FFF.
