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.

On tap at The Old Toad in Rochester, NY.

This one pours a dark reddish-orange with a half inch head, and a little bit of lacing.

Smells like grapefruit, with lots herbal pine and grassiness as well, and some slight maltiness.

This is a really good straight forward IPA. It's got a really nice bitterness to it, with sweet grapefruit and bitter rind, and some slight malty sweetness near the end.

This is medium bodied, with a very crisp and juicy mouthfeel, and a moderate level of carbonation.

Would drink this one a lot if it was more available around here- very tasty.
