Pours opaque with clear edges. Foam is light tan, creamy and a half-inch thick. Retention isn't quite what I expect from the style. Lacing is dotty.
Aroma hints with carafa scents. Orange, tangerine type citrus is clear and prevalent. Quite nice.
Taste follows from the aroma. Carafa (muted, light roast) type malt heads the malt side of the taste that is really permissive to the hops. Once again orange, more closely related to tangerine, leads the hops charge. Almost finishes clean but there is a bitterness, especially as it warms.
Light end of medium body that has ever so slight a creamy edge. Carbonation is on the lighter end. There is dryness to the finish.
Nice beer. Another hoppy serving from FFF. Is there really any other type that they produce. Nice delicate balance. Enjoy!
A: Very dark brown, but can see clear when held to the light. Fizzy and small, linen white bubbles.
S: Crazy good citrus blast of tangerine and orange. The malt notes are subtle and lightly toasted. If you like FFFs signature hop aroma profile, this beers's in your wheelhouse.
T: Muted citrus twang with a great nutty and toasty malt. Very well balanced. There's a nice lingering citrus tartness. The beer' got a perfect dryness and no real bitterness.
O: Very much an example of FFF's craft and expertise. There's a huge hop presence, but in a awesome display of a citrus and fruit favors. But there wholeness to the other parts of the brew. Just a very well made beer that's all it's own brew.

One fine body…
This black India pale ale is loaded with hops balanced with delicious maltiness. It was brewed with our friends from the great city of New Orleans in the band EyeHateGod.
