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.

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!

16oz can from Noble Grains NYC on the UES
Pours a clear tan orange with creamy white head and thick lacing, smells like resinous pine and caramel candy, taste is sweet candied grapefruit flesh that transitions into pithy/dank bitterness that lingers and becomes more dank the more you drink , feel is light with good carbonation. A straight up IPA with nice bitter-sweet balance.
