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.

This is 3Floyds (an therefore Indiana's) best IPA. Wish they made it more often and sold 6pks so you could get more than 22 oz at a time. Truly great stuff.

22oz bomber dated late May 2016 poured into tulip.

Appearance: Pours a deep slightly cloudy amber with an off white head that lingers. Bubbles churn within the liquid.

Smell: Hoppy, juicy, bright.

Taste: A smooth, bright hop forward taste with a beautiful balance of maltiness on the back end that makes this disappear all too quickly. No alcohol taste noticed at all. Outstanding.

Mouthfeel: bitterness from the hops lingers slightly. Not as overpowering as almost any IIPA out there. Very nice.

Overall: I'm buying more the moment I see it on shelves again. Outstanding in all regards.

A - Pours a hazy amber with a one finger creamy white.

S - Aroma of orange, grapefruit & caramel malts.

T - The taste follows the aroma. Sweet caramel malts, orange, mango, grapefruit and finishing with earthy hops.

M - Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Very soft creamy mouthfeel.

O - This is a kick ass DIPA. This is definetly worthy of all the hype and praise.
