I received this beer from a BIF Lloyd Dobler, thank you. The beer is FAF from the grapevine. The beer is 48 degrees and served in a tulip glass. The beer has a one finger creamy and airy white head. The color of the beer is SRM 10 a medium amber with copper hues. The clarity of is a touch opaque with a few carbonation bubbles. The head has poor retention and no lacing on the glass.

Tropical, herbal, bready, phenolic, pine, toasted malt, caramel, subtle honey, grapefruit, and floral for the aromas.

The flavors, are tropical, grapefruit, pine, herbal, toasted malt, bread, caramel, subtle honey, floral, and crackers for the flavors.

The mouthfeel of the beer is astringent, coating, and crisp.

The body of the beer is medium, a medium plus carbonation, and a full finish.

The beer exudes a restrained hop profile that is in your face. The balance in the beer is phenomal. Strong malt backbone and excellent flavors.

Thanks to a stalwart BA who gifted this monster to me recently.

22oz undated bomber poured into a pint glass shows a luminescent, yet clouded, copper-orange body and floats an impressive 2in white, soapy head and leaves plentiful lacing.

Aroma is bitter hops with a citrus touch from orange and grapefruit hints. Under that is a threatening dankness. I wonder whether a hop influence can be so bitter that it pulls the malt base from beneath.

Flavors are both bright and dank. Piney bitterness and orange, grapefruit citrus. A complexity that is at the same time fearsome and welcoming. I feel that I may be staying here for a while.

Mouthfeel is medium, leaning fuller, sticky, but with a wet finish.

Overall a complex composition. It's not my favorite style, but clearly well crafted.

Thanks, Joe, for the taste.

Hazy dark straw appearance with a one finger off white head. Dank, earthy, piny nose that is on the shy side. Maybe as it warms it will get more expressive. Taste mirrors the nose with plenty of earthy, resiny pine along with hints of citrus. Bready malt plays a fairly big role in overall taste. Pleasant bitterness lingers on a long finish. Mouth feel is very creamy. Glad to have finally gotten a hold of this beer - it's darn tasty and deserves its high rating.
