3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
(On tap @ Mikkeller Bar Stockholm, Feb 25 2015) Pours copper with a small dense off white head leaving lots of lace. Aroma is orange, lemon zest, fresh pine, grassy florals, faintly spicy and a little dank, TF house style for sure. Bit of a caramel backbone. Palate has a bit more caramel backbone, with pine, orange rind, lemon, herbal, a bit of white pepper from the middle on? Sweetish. Finish is dry and even softly sour with a fairly light astringent bitterness of orange peel and a spruce/cedar sort of character. A little grain. Lightish mouthfeel and average carb. A pretty good APA, but it’s definitely not as good as Zombie Dust, being a little less fruity and bright.

As a double IPA loving hop head, I usually avoid APA’s, but this pale ale is out of sight! Nice citrus nose and sweet hoppy taste; well balanced with great finish. All three of the Floyds obviously know what they are doing!

12 oz bottle. Tasted on 2/26/15. Bottle from West Lakeview Liquor. Lots of earthy pine & caramel. Taste was surprisingly mellow to me but had a great flavor overall.

APA not this is an IPA...if I were to rate this on style...booo. But it is such a phenomena grass white pepper aroma kills it. Flavor is crisp and dry with a hop presence that lingers throughout. My fav

pours amber with a thick white head. nice lacing. aroma is citrus hops, caramel and orange. taste very clean and crisp. finishes nice and dry. Not at all what I was expecting but in a very good way. This thing would be even more outstanding on a hot summer day. Unfortunately is Michigan in the end of January.

12 oz. bottle bough from the Thee Floyds brewpub in Munster, IN, bottled 3 days before opening. Pours a nice orangey-amber color with a thin head that left some cool lacing patterns on the top of the beer after it dissipated. First thing on the nose is citrus, followed by a myriad of notes, mostly in the piney and fruity range. Smells amazing. Flavor is well balanced, a lot going on in the flavor profile. It starts out with citrusy and piney hops which give way to bready malt flavors on the back end. Nice to see a beer get this much hype that isn’t just a total hop bomb.
