A nice ale with a lot going on in the flavor. A very good Pale Ale, but just not my favorite style.

This is about the best APA I have had. It might even edge out GL Burning River. Pretty copper color with a thick beige head and nice lacing. Strong hops and ginger aroma. The flavor was excellent as well. Citrus, ginger, brown sugar and hops were all dancing around in there. Hops did not diminish at all throughout the glass. This is a crisp, good tasting beer that will set the standard for APAs for me for the forseeable future.

Nice and thick as it poured out into a my glass, smell reminds me of Stone Ruination IPA. Taste is more like an IPA also.I like it, maybe I ought to have bought a six pack instead of just two.Very Hoppy, with citrus flavors, well balanced, bring on the barbecued Ribs.

Snappy hops flavor, nice light coppery-amber color, aroma is not quite as strong when it comes from the bottle as on tap but on tap it smells quite strong. Great citrus-hop flavor, very crisp. Still a good balance and the toasty, malty side of the beer comes out stroger when itís not as cold. Recommended for fans of beer with high hops content. Iím quite proud that something of such high quality comes from my home state of Indiana. Three cheers for Three Floyds!

Poured with a nice thick head and nice lace. It was a beautiful coppery orange color. The smell of hops and malt complemented each other nicely. The hops and malt also complemented each other nicely in the taste, with the hops winning out in the end. A very HOPPY finish to a GREAT drink! If you like hops, youíll love this beer.

SiddFinch (155) - Pen Argyl, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 27, 2002
Best Pale Ale Iíve had. This has a slight citrus aroma/flavor without being sour. Strong hop presence but the finish is very well balanced which takes the edge off the hoppiness. Great summertime beer.

If there is a great god of hops, this (and Bellís Two-Hearted) were created by his mandate. Beautiful bronze color and with playful bubbles dancing everywhere. If you put your nose to close to the glass, you get some tingles from hops and carbonation. Powerful hops character in every pull. Long lasting hop finish. A great beer.
