FFF are a bunch of wizards. I really love this beer. My favorite DIPA on the market.

I was lucky enough to purchase a case of bombers from DLD this year. I bought it after a small taste of a guy that was in line at the beer kiosk! Holy moly, this beer is awesome. I really like ZD, but PF is just flat out AMAZING!

A- Has a reddish orange tinge to it. Looks almost like a Killian's Irish Red.

S- Has a smell of fermenting fruits with a hoppy/boozy finish.

T- The taste was surprisingly smooth. I was expecting a bit of harshness, but one I was gravely mistaken. Had hints of fruit (honeydew), and almost a legume taste to it (as weird as that sounds, it was utterly delicious).

M- It is a bit thicker than a stereotypical beer, but feels great on the palate

O- I would rate this beer as one of my favorites. Venturing out into the world beyond blue moon and fat tire is sure exciting. I'm thankful that I live within an hour drive of FFF. This craft beer stuff is pretty tasty but can get expensive pretty quickly.

Had this one on tap at the 3Floyds taproom. Poured a light orange, hazy, with a decent sized white head. Hop-forward aroma, which gave way to a very well blended DIPA. The malt comes through with a sweeter, caramel flavor to balance the slight bitterness from the hops. Overall, well balanced and delicious. Glad I could try it fresh from the source!
