Had on tap at the brewery. This is a phenomenal DIPA. It's the easiest, smoothest, perfectly hoppy, most drinkable, tropical tasting, hidden ABV, perfectly balanced DIPA I've ever had. As much as I love other beers from FFF, this one is the best I've had. I'm so incredibly impressed. So bummed I missed the bottles because I must have this one again.

FFF Permanent Funeral

Look: Bright yellow-orange with two fingers of fluffy foam leaving behind tons of lacing as it settles. Cloudy body. Great-looking IPA. 4.25

Smell: Smooth hops with an usual sweetness. Also a bit of sweaty funk. I realize that sounds a little gross, but it's not stale or old-smelling. 4.0

Taste: Bright, citrusy orange flavor with a bit of spice on it. Smooth and sweet with some bitterness on the finish. Unfortunately, it has faded a bit, but it's still quite tasty. 4.0

Mouthfeel: Nice full/round feel, and it finishes clear and crisp. 4.0

Overall: I normally wouldn't review an IPA that isn't super-fresh, but this is still so good that I wanted to write the review anyway. This is a fantastic IPA. If I still lived in Chicago, I would *not* take this beer for granted. 4.25

Dark orange color, hazy, piny combined with fruit and bitterness, bold, in your face flavor but they all work well and it is a pretty amazing beer. No sense that its an almost 11% abv.

Great IIPA from 3 Floyds. Definitely tasted like a FFF IPA.
