Finback IPA poured into a nonic pint glass.

7.2% abv. A ridiculous 112 IBU! Pours a gorgeous hazy orange gold color with a healthy white head. Excellent Belgian lace. Amazing grapefruit, mango, pineapple, and orange rind aroma. Super drinkable for a relatively high abv. Touches of pine, herbs, and white pepper about halfway through. Hop flavors linger on the tips of the tongue and gums. Solid malt backing with caramel and water cracker flavors adds some balance. Interesting blending of grapefruit, mango, and pineapple with each sip. This is a delicious IPA that creates a great balance of bitter dankness, tropical juiciness, with a dry and lingering finish. I love it.
