Near perfect hopping (for me anyway) with a substantial fruity flavor - well Balanced in this respect. The finish is dry, but not too dry. This beer is much more complex than I expected.

Wow this beer looks appetizing in the glass, great burnt orange body and substantial head. I happen to like grapefruit a lot, and the aroma is full of it, as well as other citrus tones. There’s a substantial, adequate malt backbone to support the ample hopping. Definitely not as subtle as some other good pale ales, but enjoyable just the same. Leaves a great impression that makes me want to open another as soon as I finish the first.

UPDATED: APR 10, 2003 nice aroma; typical 3floyds citrus/grapefruit-hop taste; super hoppy, yet very well balanced in the end - how did they do that?! I just LOVE this beer.

Good beer, nothing to special here though. Not a fan of grapefruit, so take that into account.

An umcompromising beer completely dominated by the grapefruit aroma of American hop varieties. Very bitter, very tasty.

Extremely chunky and what a great flavor, wow! I like it. Cloudy, almost amber in color with aggressive but not overpowering hops. The malts are present and make this a well balanced beer

A great pale ale. Someone once said to me they did not like pale ales because they all taste the same. He needs to get out more.

Wonderful statement of cascade hops, with a clean/bold statement. Very drinkable, I can see why they did so well at the GABF !! A must try if you like Hoppy ales.
