Canned on 2/9. Beautifully aromatic with sweet mango and pine notes. Mostly clean and clear in the glass. Tastes of fresh pineapple with a bit of honey. Piney bitterness on the finish. Overall, I'd seek this out and drink it immediately 10 out of 10 times.

Golden-colored ale, very close to clear, which presented a few fingers of white foam on the pour. Citra, Mosaic, and El Dorado hops bring plenty of citrusy and bright notes to the nose, with hints of pale and crisp fruit; underneath, a caramel grain sweetness, and something grassy and clean... Has a tight bitterness, lean body, and flavors that build on the nose. Lots of lime and grapefruit pith. Drinks like an IPA - and all-too-quickly. Don't pass it up.

Pours with a nice white head. Aroma of hops, mango and citrus. The taste of mango, guava, tangerine, and apricot with hops and pine. Very nice dipa. Look forward to more from finback.

Similar feel/taste/aroma of some newer big NE IPA's/DIPA's without the mega milkshake thing going on. Ripe pineapple/mango, hopsweet, slightly bready IPA. Very, very solid. I know that this is a rotational brand for FB, but I hope they end up bringing this one back. It's real solid

16oz. can poured into a snifter.

Look: Golden and a bit hazy, does let a good deal of light pass through. Active bubbles, thick foamy white head.

Smell: Pine, citrus zest, lemon rind, some tropical fruit, but not a ton of juiciness in this aroma, more earthy.

Taste: I get lemon zest and earthy pine as the most noticeable flavors, a hint of hoppy spice in the background. As it warms a bit more of a tropical feel is there, mango, citrus juice.

Feel: Medium body with moderate carbonation, carbonation is active and bites your tongue a bit with the first few sips.

Overall: I found this to be pretty enjoyable, crisp, not super dank and juicy, but you can still tell its an IPA with those characteristics in mind.
