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 canít 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. iíll 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 Iíve 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.

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.
