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!

On tap at Bukowsk's Tavern in Boston.

Pours a clear light amber.

Smell is fruity and citrusy, lemon and lemon peel mostly.

The taste is also citrusy with a nice floral base, and some resiny pine on the finish.

Medium bodied, this is oily in a way that I really like in an IPA.

Overall, a solid, citrusy IPA with a nice mouthfeel.
