16 oz can, procured at Brew and Co, in Bedford, NY

Pours heavily hazed, light tangerine, super light n tiny bubble off white cap, leaves a nice looking fine film, collar and then bands of again light and airy high rings of lacing, very nice looking beer.

Sniff is of lemons n limes, white pepper, ripe tropical fruits...nice

More of the same on the palate, light tropical fruits, light pepper, yeasty, light ginger....delicious...one of my favorites from FB

another thick and frothy east coast style big ipa from these guys, and another winner! this one looks and feels like it might be wheat based, paler in color and more textured than some of the others i have had. its malty in flavor, cerealy and earthy, but it isnt sweet. its an excellent base for all these hops, and the kind of malt character i like in this style, not the crystal malt richness, but with just as much influence. the hops are killer in here, not sure which are at work, but i get fresh pineapple, intense grapefruit, and an oily profile i associate much more with west coast style ipa than with these cloudy dry hop bombs, an awesome feature here. some other tropical notes too, passion fruit maybe, white grape sweetness, and a zesty citrus rind quality, a bit more bitter in the end than some of their others too. its got a lot of body and a long lingering intense hoppy finish despite not being sweet, and overall its a rather substantial beer for how juicy it is. this is the finback wheelhouse, big dry hoppy ipa types, they havent missed on one in my experience! cool to see this on tap in colorado! i hope they start sending some stuff out this way with some regularity!

Medium-pale gold body with a light haze, few fingers of white head on top, lace arms trailing down the glass... Brewed and dry hopped with 007, Citra, Centennial, El Dorado, Mosaic, and Simcoe hops, this beer presents an incredible flavor and aroma profile, laden with soft fruit notes, sweet floral impressions, and succulent juices, all couched in a fluffy, almost airy body - so light and gentle, it drinks terribly fast... A real stunner.

Candied orange peel, ripe mango, lemon and tangerine. Cracker malt profile. Clean tasting. Perfectly balanced, nice amount of sweetness. Lighter bodied. Floral. Dry, semi bitter finish. Pretty solid brew.

Pours cloudy hazy gold with a creamy frothy white foam head. Smells like mango, grapefruit, dark berry, grape, pineapple, orange citrus, lemon, passionfruit, caramelized malt, with dank resinous woodsy floral earthy herbal grassy pine. Tastes like tropical mango, grapefruit, dark berry, grape, pineapple, orange citrus, lemon, passionfruit, caramelized malt, with dank resinous woodsy floral earthy herbal grassy pine. Feels medium bodied, creamy with moderate carbonation. Overall a nice double IPA.
