This is a great example of a pale ale. This is how a pale ale should taste, brewers take note, and use this as your example. A beautiful hop aroma, with a nice complemeting malt backbone. Lots of fruit, some great buttery tasting malty flavor to compliment the finish. Superior!

I canít imagine how the aroma of a pale ale could be better - is this even beer? The taste is fruity and complete, with hops leading, but not leaving the palate killed via dry burn. This is as drinkable and enjoyable as Iíve experienced in an otherwise modest style.

Great beer. Very reminiscent of the drednaught IPA, which is unfortunate because it doesnt have the complexity, just the smell. This beer has a great fruity taste and a thick frothy head(mmmm). Great hops.

You know, this is the easiest of the Three Floyds beers to find, yet it took me forever to try it. What the hell was I thinking, this is great! 2 for 2 on good beers tonight.

Bottle. Pours a beautiful dark golden with a very large head. Went perfectly with the meatball sandwich I was eating at the time. Will be coming back for more.

pivo (2542) - GERMANY - MAY 23, 2004
Clean bright hop nose, pale copper color, big foamy head. Creamy honey-ish malt body up front turns quickly to a sharp, spicy hop finish that sticks around for a while. Not convinced on the balance. Enjoyable though.

YogiBeera (2435) - Hamburg, GERMANY - MAY 20, 2004
Amber colored, little frothy head, liveley carbonation. Medium hoppy nose, kind of bubblegummy. Nice malty taste - the hoppiness comes in the end but weak. Medium but short aftertaste.

tomxcs (320) - Berkeley, California, USA - MAY 7, 2004
A really nice malty, rich grapefruit aroma with an deep amber body and off-white head which diminished quickly. Great flavors of citrus, malt, and hop bitterness. Wonderful mouthfeel -- dry, bitter and lasting. Iím very impressed.

I scored a fairly fresh batch a few months ago and should have written notes back then. I tasted the same batch recently, and it (like many Ipas) has lost its hoppy "edge". Still a wonderful brew, but the hops have dulled with a 3 month aging. This was superb fresh, but average after a few months on the shelf.
