This is a serious Pale Ale!! As complex as it gets, with tremendous hop character. A great beer!

Very citrusy, sweet aroma. I would be hardpressed to recall a beer with a better aroma than this. Is red-orange in color with a medium head and very nice lacing. Flavor is full of hops, just the right amount for my taste. An excellent beer, by far the best that Three Floyds has to offer. This has become my staple APA.

UPDATED: APR 16, 2005 Nice dark orange color with tiny floaters. Huge pine aroma, pleasant bitterness that is matched by a great malt taste. I’m saddened by the fact that I don’t have any left.

fraternie (843) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 13, 2002
UPDATED: APR 16, 2011 Dark, malty body. A blast of hops with considerable carmel malt kick. A giant pale ale, almost an IPA as it is very hopped up and high in ABV for the style. The malt is delicious and is balanced perfectly with the hops, with a metallic bitterness creeping in late.

UPDATED: SEP 13, 2007 Let’s see: Pretty Boy Floyd, Pink Floyd, and ... ? Anyway, these Floyds make a killer beer - lots of hops and malt, lots of flavor, gotta get more of this.

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - MAR 25, 2002
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? It’s 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 can’t 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.
