S: Holy shit, it's like being slapped in the face with citrus, tropical, and pine blast. I can't think of another beer that is this in your face hopped up, and I mean that as a complete compliment.
T: It's super refreshing. Any potential for sweetness is quickly overrun by a citrus bitterness, like a semi-sweet orange. Solid medium mouthfeel, that drys from the massive hops. Finishes nicely, without a trace of hop bite, more of a fade into the mists.
O: I am a shameless fan of FFFs, but here's why. The non-stars in their line-up might be semi-forgettable, but none are ever off. But, when they hit their stride there's few brews that can top FFFs best. If you love hops and had the pleasure to have access to FFFs, you know what I'm talking about>
"Well ya see, Norm, it's like this... A herd of buffalo can only move as fast as the slowest buffalo. And when the herd is hunted, it is the slowest and weakest ones at the back that are killed first. This natural selection is good for the herd as a whole, because the general speed and health of the whole group keeps improving by the regular killing of the weakest members. In much the same way, the human brain can only operate as fast as the slowest brain cells. Excessive intake of alcohol, as we know, kills brain cells. But naturally, it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way, regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. That's why you always feel smarter after a few beers." - Cliff Clavin, of Cheers
