On tap at the pub. Served in a tulip. Pours a hazy orange yellow with a creamy head that shrinks slowly and leaves heavy lacing. Aroma is apricot, pepper, and funk. Taste is apricot, bread, grapefruit, Belgian yeast, and more. Medium mouthfeel. I hope this becomes a regular beer.

Poured into a tulip. Had on tap at the brewpub.
 
A - Quite a beauty in the glass. Looks like a nice Belgian triple but a bit darker and hazier. Pours a slightly hazy golden colder with a slight  brown twinge. Beauty of a rocky white head that leaves nice  lacing down the side
 
S - Nose is a good mix of a Belgian and an IPA. Get hints of banana, clove, orange, and pineapple. The citrus is blended perfectly with the rest of the nose instead of overpowering

T -   First, I get hints of clove and banana with hints of bubblegum. As the beer goes on, you start to get more hints of orange peel and citrus that comes up on the back. The finish is a nice blend of bubblegum and orange. Very nice flavor profile
 
MF - Medium to heavy body with good carbonation. Slight stickiness in the body. Leaves light carbonation and slight stickiness in the finish

O - Overall this is an amazing beer by FFF. Love how well the Belgian Trippel and IPA flavors blend together. This is a great example of  FFF taking a beer and stretching its bounds.  Great offering that I would love to see bottled and one of the best and most unique beers I've had from them in awhile

On tap at the brewery, served in a tulip.

Hazy orange body with a voluminous white head. Big lace and good retention. Tons of yeast notes on the nose, a bit of spice, hint of ethanol with melons, tropical fruits and citrus. More honeydew melon in terms of flvaour, a little less tropical. Yeast and some Belgian character, a bit of weed flavour too, in the best way. Light herbal bitterness but a substantial malt sweetness as well. Light alcohol, a bit yeasty in the finish. Medium heavy body and a medium carbonation. A really cool and tasty tripel/IPA/Belgian IPA whathaveyou - awesome flavour and body.
