Nice fruity scent. Flavor is mighty hoppy, with very strong grapefruit tastes. Hops give a crisp, dry finish. Good malts to back up the hops, nice long finish. Slightly thin, would prefer it a bit creamier in the palate, but still darn fine.

A bottle of this was my introduction to American Pale Ale. This brew pours a hazy dark amber with a large creamy/rocky off-white mostly lastining head that has amazing lacing. This brew has a stellar nose. Strong, complex and balanced. Heavy tones of grain, straw, cereal and caramel combined with heavy flowery tones of grass, resin, and soapy grapefruit. The flavor is outstandingly balanced with something for everyone here. You like malt? Itís in there...How about hops? Ditto... How about a little citrus to suck on... you get the picture. The long finish is also a plus. This brew has a medium body with a smooth texture and a perfectly soft carbonation. The finish is dry. An outstanding offering. I canít wait to get my hands on some more Three Floyds Brews.

Delicious! This is one of the best named beers in the business, and this brew lives up to it’s name. Golden amber with a reddish tinge, moderately full-bodied, great aroma, terrific flavor that kind of explodes in your mouth, with a long, dry rather than sweet, citrus dominated finish, very thirst quenching.

UPDATED: OCT 7, 2003 (bottle - 10/7/03) Hazy copper body topped by small beige head. Aroma is medium sweet, grapefruit. Taste is grapefruit, medium sweet, fairly intense bitterness. Still, the sweetness lends decent balance to the hops. Medium body. (draft - 7/2/03) Clear brown body with small off-white head. Aroma is moderately sweet hoppy. Taste is hoppy (pine/grapefruit) -- going for broke and taking no prisoners. Medium body. (7/4/7/3/14)

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. Thereís 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.

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - FEB 11, 2002
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.
