3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Beer Camp Mixed Pack. Pours a nice caramel orange with an off-white head. Nose is caramel, light grapefruit, some orange, and some mild grass and pine. Flavor is orange, some caramel, and some mild pine. Understated malts and hops considering Alpha King and SNPA. Light to medium in body and kind of a surprise.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Man, I was hoping for big things from this beer given the iconic status of both breweries involved but I was left wanting. Very faint hop aroma. Average golden color and the palate was light and fizzy. Flavor was hoppy but mild with malts just showing up to the party. Good but not up to the standards of either brewery.

Tap. Dark copper. Some scattered lace. Mildly malty nose, interestingly. A very bready beer, mild hop... 3 Floyd’s AND Sierra Nevada with a mild, malt forward beer? Is this the apocalypse?

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
One of the milder beers I’ve ever had from 3 floyds and for that reason, I appreciated it. Floral aroma, amber appearance, with a nice thick sweet finish. One of three I managed to try at Blind Tiger in 2014.

B 355 ml
Aroma: funky and a bit chaotic blend of hops. Citrusy with lemon grass touch, slight herbal side with sweet bottom.
Look: poured nice white cap. Textbook like lace. Clear amber base.
Palate/Body/Taste: medium bodied with softer touch to it. Lighter carbonation. Slight nutty hints with crystal malts. Decent.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle from Hayduke that we had together via facebook chat. This beer has a big creamy off white head that leaves thick sticky lacing. It has a lot of carbonation and is amber in color. Aroma is not huge but is nice. I got peaches and tangerines with yeast. The flavor also begins with that fruit and yeast. Very mild bitterness. Malts are pale and are big here. An interesting beer and one that I kept hoping would go to the next level.
