Not much aroma. Clear orange with a white foam. Taste is very grassy & herbal. Not what I was expecting. Good carbonation. Generally not a flavor I enjoy. Definitely a unique beer.
More beer please...

On tap at CBF. Yuck spices! Too much spices going on, tasted like a spice rack of sage, thyme, cloves, lavender and rosemary. Didn’t enjoy it. Smells similar and is thin.

Great looking clear bright orange pour (draft at cheesies) with thin head. Fruity and citrus aroma. Tangerine dominates the taste Very dry aftertaste and mild hops. Decent

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the annual CBS picnic, and self served to clear plastic with a fairly clear, orangy amber hue, a nice bubbles & cream head, and wavy cling to the lacing. The aroma was interestingly herbal and spicy,(I immediately picked up on the juniper and sage) with some light grain and straw notes. The flavor was similar, maybe not as striking, adding a moderate bitterness that was lingering, earthy, and incorporated peppery, and dry characteristics. Light to medium bodied and well carbonated, I applaud the unique blend of herbs & spices, and couldn’t have picked a better venue to display the beer. I agree with a Spice/Herb/Vegetable Beer label.

This is one seriously unique beer. A pale ale with nice sage and pepper notes that kind of cloud the beer being categorized as pale ale. If you sit down and just enjoy it for what it is you will have a good time.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft. Poured a clear brown color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy earthy hop, and over the top herbal aroma. Medium body with a dry smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium herbal bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Not my style.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap. Mildly hazy amber color. Some off-white head, leaving some lace. Definitely WEIRD for an "American Pale Ale", not your typical american pale ale at all. Hops aroma are very grassy, cannabis, with some citrus and other weirdness in there. Pretty bitter, more than your typical pale ale, with a sort of spicy (sage and black pepper) bite -- this might be more accurately classified as a spice beer. Light, smooth carbonation, more dry finish, medium body... But the aftertaste isn’t entirely pleasant. Definitely interesting and unique, but so grassy it’s almost a joke. Gotta say, though, seems like something Three Floyds would pull (it’s not normal!)

UPDATED: JUL 24, 2012 Draft to pint. Looks decent; burnt-orange with sticky white lacing. Smells alright; mildly hoppy and bitter. Tastes sweet and malty. Mouthfeel is average (at best). Not a good example of the style.
