Bottle. via trade with drewbeerme. Amber/ caramel colored pour with an ivory head that leaves heavy lacing. Citrusy hop aroma with a good deal of caramel notes. Straight forward and bitter with a slight caramel and crystal malt backbone. Lemon and grapefruit notes with a bit of grass and some straw. Very fruity. This is definitely a hop lovers Pale Ale.

Bottle @ home. Clear amber, big off white head, great lacing. Aroma, malty base, lots of hops, pine, citrus, grapefruit, floral, caramel. Taste, hops, pine, fruity, orange, citrus, grass, passion fruit, caramel. The bitterness doesn’t kick in at first, but then it hits you and last quite a while. Slightly oily mouth feel. Bitter aftertaste, with pine and caramel. Great pale ale.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pour a slightly hazy amber, with a frothy one-fingered size white head.
Aroma has lots of citrus, slight lemon peel, floral, grass and slight caramel. A little mellowed up front, but plenty of hoppyness from the middle and out... A little strange at first, but works fine...
The taste is pretty darn bitter, but has some sweet n’ slightly malty notes ti back it up. Medium bodied, with plenty of fizzy (almost prickling/stinging) carbonation. I’d love to see how this is super fresh... Guess I’ll have to plan a trip to Indiana...

Color cobrizo con espuma color crema densa. Aromas de frutas tropicales, miel y melocotón. Textura melosa y sabor afrutado de inicio para acabar con un amargor resinoso equilibrado, aunque duradero. Muy rica, aunque prácticamente es una IPA.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Growler from Historic Casanova Liquors 2 days after fill. Pours a quintessential amber with large, lasting beige head that leaves excellent lacing. Appearance is near perfect. Aroma is bright with orange and other sweet citrus, with some nice malt balance. Taste is lip-smacking juicy hops and a little pine with some sweet malt balance, into a moderately bitter finish that dries out but fades quickly, encouraging you to take another drink. Malts are bready, and some sips occasionally give a slight hint of roast. Really good overall.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
American pale ale
6.66% ABV 68 IBU
APPEARANCE: Poured out a vibrant rust color. Star bright clear no haziness at all. Great big pillowy egg shell white head. Great retention and lacing.
AROMA: Strong pine and citrus right away. Smells like breakfast of fresh squeezed orange juice and warm toast. Malty sweetness and carmel.
TASTE: Another 3 Floyds APA that drinks like an IPA to me. Very piney and citrus right up front. Hops hit in the middle and rounds out with that great maltiness I got on the nose. Literally taste so good makes you want to slap yo mama!
MOUTHFEEL: Medium to light body along with the carbonation. Dry snappy finish that almost leaves you thirsty.
OVERALL: Once again very impressed with a 3 Floyds brew. Still can't believe this is an APA reminds me of a wonderful low key west coast IPA. Would for sure try and get more of this goodness.
RATING: 4.4/5 Zombie Heads!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle. Amber/orange with thin white head. Big pine on the nose, caramel and sprucey notes in there, grapefruit coming in too. Taste gives plenty of pine and grapefruit, touch of pineapple, mango and orange in there. Good caramel backbone, some light nuttiness. Pine needles linger, as does orange peel and pithy grapefruit. For those drinkers out there looking for a legit ’balanced’ APA, this is your boy.
