iwantalambic (1478) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JAN 18, 2004
12 oz [bottled in Munster]: darkly bronzed body. Pours with a generous, sticky, icing like head. Gooey lacing around the edges. Aromatic grapefruits, oranges, and dry piney hops make a solid aroma. Tightly carbonated palate delivers the citrus and bitter hops flavours throughout the mouth. . . though these flavours are great, a bit a of malt balance here could only make a great beer better. As you can only expect from the brothers floyd a wonderful tasty treat.

Brown, almost red with a white head. Nice hoppy smell. this beer is loaded with hop flavor without being overbearing. Great!

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - JAN 7, 2004
Draught, at the The Blind Tiger, NY.</br> When Spiesy & AustinPowers drank. Amber with a lacy head. Has a very feral hop aroma. Strong bitter flavour and good long after taste. I didnít write enough about this famous beer. Itís hard to stop to write something when your talking your head off and downing the beer at pace. Anyway all the beers were enjoyable.

theakston (64) - arlington, Virginia, USA - JAN 6, 2004
intensely hoppy, especially the aroma. Not really pale - more of a red / brown colour, plenty of malts there too. fruity citrus aftetaste. dangerously drinkable.

warrior (213) - Mt. Wolf, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 4, 2004
Nice amber color, creamy white head that clings well. Nice strong cascade hop aroma? Good hop bitterness and hop flavors. Has a chinook and cascade bitterness and flavor. Medium body with some crystal malt flavor, but not much. A very well done American Pale Ale, which I will have again.

desurfer (1209) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - JAN 4, 2004
APA? This seemed far too bold; I would classify it as an IPA. Huge citrusy, piney flavor and aroma, dry, bitter and enjoyable finish. Did I mention how great it looked in the glass? Top notch.

UPDATED: JAN 10, 2008 ReRate: I have to admit that sometimes Three Floyds is all over the map on consistency. I recently picked up a sixer that didnít have any dust on the bottles, looked new. As soon as I cracked the cap I could smeel those wonderful Three Floyds hops. Amazing malt flavor with layers of hops complexity. This sixer was pure heaven. I swear God himself made this batch. I had to rerate because it was the best I have ever tasted. If they could consistently provide this on my store shelves I might drink nothing else. Note: I bought every sixer at the store. When they restocked the beer was off again...hop aroma low, malt seemed thin. Almost like they ran a 2nd runnings AK at the brewery. CíMon Nick! Keep it consistent.

Thanks to jcalabre for this. APAs really don't get any better than this. Beautiful copper color with a small head that hangs around and laces nicely. Very nice malt character, smooth, excellent balance with a great finish. What more can you ask for?

Bottle pours a beautiful dark amber color with a nice head a good lace. It looks real good. The aroma is hoppy and sweet. The flavor is hoppy with good malt. The palate is good and thick. Yep, I could have more of this.
