Solid gold haze. Nose is peach rings and pineapple slices. Taste is grapefruit rind followed by rich tropical juice. All kinds of juicy pineapple, passionfruit, and mango. Finishes with a lingering blast of ripe peach. Thick, slightly prickly mouthfeel.

Wanted to like this one but it's way too astringent, the hop burn makes it a borderline drain pour. It's almost 3 weeks old so I don't think it's a case of it being too green.

#JooseMe! Med/big hazy juice bomb. Earthy, lavender, flowery, lightly spicy, juicy hop nose & palate. Tastes like a very pale malt base (Yes, Please!). Med/low IBU's. Very, dangerously crushable.
Nice visit on Sat, & took some home.

Super hazy orange/yellowish pour. Looks like straight up pulp free orange juice. Has a great smell that takes just a minute to pick up on. Smells of a very slight pine with lots of citrus. The taste is so hard to explain but carries all of that juicy citrus funk with a touch of pine that I love from Finback. This one is balanced super well and is one of my favorites right now. It carries that slight meaty finish that Social Fabric and Passthrough have. The feel is so smooth a luscious I could just hold it in my mouth forever. This is another home run by Finback and has definitely turned me into a Finback fanboy. I am somewhat new to this IPA game but Finback has made 3 of my top 5 beers to date.

This beer is flippin' CRUSHABLE dude. Reminds me of something Other Half would put out. Fresh squeezed orange juice.

Looks like a model. Perfect for a photo shoot. Even better for enjoying while watching a basketball game. I didn't even realize it was 8.5%. What the hell is going on!?
