Brewtopia’04. Like other FFF, this one is piney in a big way. Pine on flavor but dominated by cirtus. This may be my favorite APA. For sure, I’ll have to get some more to sample.

MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - JUN 20, 2004
Tap at Brewtopia. Pale clear orange with a nice head. Nice hoppy aroma. Flavor is well balanced. Malt comes through. Perfect bitterness. Easy drinking.

Draught somewhere in Chicago. This beer is a pleasure. Not much better than most other American Pale Ales from microbreweries. Nice complexity and balance. Something is missing can’t say what. Incredible fruity aroma.

Oh, Mama. Had it once from the bottle. This time had it at the brewery poured by Nick Floyd. This is great stuff. Cloudy copper with small beige head. Hops/grapefruit to the nose. Medium body. Flavor was crisp and clean and refreshing. Real kick ass for an American Pale Ale.

A truly unique APA. The aroma is sweet and citrusy. The flavor is smooth but hoppy bergamot and grapefruit notes. If Earl Grey tea were a beer, this is exactly what it would taste like. I look forward to tasting it (and other TF brews) again in the future.

sweet flowery bubblegum aroma. nice head. well carbonated. not bad at all, though possibily a bit too sweet. cascade hops are what i picked up on the most. i’ll have to try it again in a proper setting.

Full of tasty citrus hops, mainly grapefruit. Nice amber color. Has a nice transition from sweet to hoppy. Give this a shot, its a great beer.

The best Pale Ale I’ve had the pleasure of trying. Dark amber, copper color. Aroma is spectacular. Fills the room with citrus hoppiness. Taste is initially awesome citrus sweet followed by a more than modest hop bitterness that lingers a bit. Finish allows for some alcohol notes to meander in my nostrils. My first experience with Three Floyds, and what a remarkable first impression. Reminds me of one of my favorite brewers, Victory, and their Hop Devil IPA.
