ACBF pour

A-Pours a lightly cloudy orange color with a wedge of white fluff.

S-Equal parts tropical/fruity and hempy/herby. Citrus and mango along with weed and earth. Smells like its gonna be bitter!

T-Bitter for sure. Coercive pine and grass with some pot. The harsher hop flavors are accompanied by some tangerine and pineapple hops. Malt is pale and unassuming-purposely.

M-Bitter. Lingering flavors. Medium bodied. Moderate carbonation.

O-A well made IPA that stuck out to me at the festival. A great introduction to Finback Brewery.

Mostly clear, orange beer with a fluffy off white head. Nice bands of lacing left behind. Tons of fruit in the nose with oranges and grapefruit. There is a moderate sweetness with a lot of orange flavor. Toward the end a caramel malt comes out and the sip finishes with a nice bitterness. This is a really tasty IPA.

In a pint glass the beer looked like a creamsicle. There was a large white head with abundant lace.
A herbal, floral aroma. Some sweet fruit.
Pine resin taste. Some melon. Good caramel malt background.
Medium-bodied and fun to drink.

Tall can purchased at the brewery a few days ago. 11/14/16 on the bottom of the can.

The pour on this one is lightly clouded lighter almond amber, larger lite khaki cap, lasting and lasting, going all merainge like, and eventually leaving a thick and dense film and loads of all sorts of lacing on the glass. Nice looking creation.

Grapefruit juice on the sniff.

As somebody else said this is a pretty straight forward IPA, with pineapple and grapefruit fruity/citric flourishes. Enough of a malt undercoating to balance things out. Fruity and long lingering finish

Solid, citric and fresh tasting IPA...More quality brew from the good folks at FB...go get some and enjoy fresh!

It's definitely one of of my favorite IPA's right now. It's brewed with honeydew melon and you can get a slight taste of it and whiff of it when you smell it. But not overly sweet. The other citrus in here too fits in perfectly. Just right. love the hops in here too. A nice amount of bitterness and tang on the back end to offset the honeydew melon. Finback hit this one out of the park.

Looks hazy, almost opaque bright gold with a huge pillowy white head. Very long retention, with sheets of lacing. Looks like a true New England juice bomb.

The aroma is an awesome balance of fruit and dankness. Pineapple, catnip, weed, orange, mango, papaya, peach, earth.

Big yellow peach, white grapefruit, pineapple, and orange upfront. Hints of passionfruit, white grape, and mango. Smooth chewy doughy malts, big but not sweet. Dank on the back end with notes of catnip, pine, and skunk weed. Just faintly bitter for a moment, but finishes clean and lightly dry.

The feel is smooth, creamy, moderately carbonated. Glides quickly on the palate, but feels rich and filling.

This is an excellent NE IPA! It's creamy and juicy, but also focuses heavily on dank aspects, which makes it dynamic and flavorful. A wonderful beer.
