On tap at Three Floyds over Christmas. Reviewed from notes. Pours a moderately-dark golden color with a hefty white head and good lacing on the way down. The nose carries loads of tropical fruits, apricots, and citrus. Fantastic mixture of hop fruits going on here. The flavor keeps it going. Great blend with just a touch of malt in the background. Light body with good carbonation and a nice hop bitterness and dryness. Super easy-drinking and fantastically-sessionable. FFF really nails the APA category. Awesome.

Thechasm442 (775) - Chicago heights, Illinois, USA - JUL 9, 2012
On tap at 3floyds in an imperial pint. Pours a clear yellow orange with a perfect inch thick white head and great lacing. Aroma is fresh cut grass, orange, pine, and toffee. Flavor is grapefruit, orange, tangerine, grain, and caramel. Medium mouthfeel and a bit sticky. Different than the typical 3floyds pale and really good.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear gold with a white head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has a really nice grassy hop note with a hint of citrus and a nice grain backbone. Flavor starts with light citrus that morphs into light grass with a nice grain backbone.

Tap. Toast and biscuit malt aromas, lots of citrus and floral hops, some tropical fruit. Light golden color, white head with average retention and lacing. Flavor is bright, fresh hops with plenty of citrus - grapefruit and a bit of orange and lemon. Toasty malts help balance out the hop charge, there is a hint of malt sweetness, though the finish is fairly dry. Light-medium body and medium carbonation. A nice, easy-drinking brew. Well done.

NobleSquirrel (3439) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 8, 2012
Draft at Three Floyds. Pours a pale gold, light haze and a white head. The nose is nice. Soft grainy malt with a citrusy hop profile, fresh. Some light tropical fruit as well. On tasting, clean and light. Soft pale malt supports medium bitterness. Good hop flavor overall, back into the citrus and the like. Clean and dry on the finish. Really nice APA here.

TheAlum (6944) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - DEC 1, 2011
Draft on tap at the brewpub (Munster, IN). But, a couple tastes at the FFF Anniversary Party. Pours a rich deep golden pour, a beautiful glowing fire matches just a faint touch of hop haze. Moderate to big bright white cakey head sits atop, sticks around well and laces ok overall. Aromas are a melange of flavors giving a burst of grapefruit and oranges, lemons and gentle gumball. Touches of Amarillo match perfectly with the gumball essence with gentle lemon, fresh cut grass, and touches of florals. A nice melange, moderate strengthed on the nose. Some light touches of pale malts, gentle bread, mellow. Initial is lighter bodied, a touch of oomph pushing a perfumey and fruity hop up front, gumball and lemons, grapefruit and oranges, touches of florals and a good load of grass. Fresh and vibrant, with a solid dryness from the hops, yet not overwhelming the rest of the beer. Mellow dry hops, fruity, gentle sweetness and a touch of soap. Gentle green hops, dry. Touches of bread and pale malts stick into the middle and moving into the backend, giving just a gentle touch of malts to combat the hop presence. Finish is dry, decently bitter, and refreshing. You could certainly drink a lot of this. I wouldn’t totally be surprised if this is the Zombie Dust malt base with more of a Gumball Head hopping, perhaps a gentle touch of Citra but really coming up all Amarillo in lively flavor and decent yet firm bitterness, a touch of Centennial (I hear it’s a 4 hop treatment of Amarillo, Apollo, Centennial, and something else). Pretty nice, very drinkable. Works for me. Though, I’d take Zombie over it and it’s explosive Citra flavors which scores it better.

Draft. Medium white head, crystal clear light amber body. Aroma is medium sweet, grapefruit, some bread, light spicy. Taste is medium sweet, bread, grapefruit, light spicy. Light-medium body, quite drinkable. Not particularly bitter, but quite flavorful and quaffable.

nuplastikk (5785) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 19, 2013
Tap at FFF. Filtered orange-tan. Big steady off-white head. Mellow malt with a touch of citrus in the aroma. Earthy, hoppy, well done. Smooth and toasty dry hop tones, reminds me of NZ hops. Straightforward but subtle, expert stuff. Easy and great.

Strykzone (6722) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUL 22, 2012
Pint at the brewpub. Clear copper hue with a one inch white foam. I smell citrus in the hops but they are more subtle in the flavor. Yeast is tasted here more than other APAs and that is bread. Grass is tasted. The hops bring a different kind of spice and it is one that I cannot pin down. Not quite. brown sugar, not quote roasted. Of course, it is Three Floyds so the unexpected is expected. Interesting beer here. Tasty, too.
