  • Purchased at Flight Bottle Shoppe on 2021-01-07. No date on can but assuming it was fresh since it was a new release that week.

    Pours with a chill haze, potentially from the brewing process as well. Solid one inch of white foam covers. Okay retention. I think my glass was snuck into the dish washer therefore the lacing is nonexistent.

    Aroma is a bit dank. Some pineapple and grapefruit. Thankfully not all that sweet.

    Taste is dank, like the aroma. Grapefruit really shines here, especially into the finish. Lingering bitterness that builds but not abrasively. No alcohol.

    Light end of medium body. Quite a bit of carbonation. Dry.

    First beer I have had from First Forest Brewing. I know it is a collaboration to another relative newcomer, Foreign Exchange, but a nice debut. The only knock on it: don't know if the hop profile it exactly my favorite. The price point is a bit steep but the beer is solid. I would have it again. Enjoy!
