Pours a nice orange color with a nice 1 1/2 finger head. The Aroma is big citrus. It smells like a west coast IPA. Little pine with a touch of a malty character. The taste is amazing!! It is IIPA flavor with a very smooth backbone. The citrus and pine hit like a nice west coast IPA. Truly amazing!

Bottle from Cutter’s Way. Pours a nice amber color with a tan colored head. Aroma is citrus, pine, malt and slight sweetness. Taste is a citrus with bitterness up front with a sweet ending. A very good pale ale.

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!

From RB definition of a Pale Ale: "...American Pale Ales are light in color, ranging from golden to a light copper color. The style of this beer is defined by the American hops used. American hops typically have high bitterness and aroma. This beer nails it. Crisp grapefruit tartness and smoothness are outstanding. Very floral aroma and balanced pallet make this beer the best Pale Ale I’ve had (yet...)

Hops, hops and yet more hops. It pours a beautiful crimson brown that almost appears to be glowing. Aroma is typical Three Floyds...part hops, part fruit salad. The lingering flavor is simply mindblowing considering it is just a regular old IPA/APA. Quite possibly my all time favorite sessionable beer (yes it is sessionable, don’t be a p*ssy). Great Job!

Great citrus smell right off the bat, with a pale orange/goldish color. Excellent hoppiness that is not too overbearing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This one never fails to satisfy me. It's bold, so I don't think I could down too many in one sitting. But it bursts with FLAVOR! ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Nice. Dark, opaque honey color. A short head, but it sticks to the glass all the way down to the bottom. Citrus aroma is equal in strenth to the hops...odd. Perfect carbonation, almost creamy on the palate with tiny bubbles just a swirl away from a fresh head. A late, but short lived finish with a light aftertaste. Good hops balance, not overwhelming, but clear and intentional. Light malt flavor balanced out the hops and some of the citrus. The flavor definitely improved as it lost the chill from the fridge. I'd leave it out 5 minutes or so before serving for this beer to make it's best impression. Yummy.

Fresh 12 oz. bottle at home. Pours hazy copper with tall white head. Smell is lemon, and citrusy. Taste is a mix of hops and malts. Caramel and citrus taste. Not my favorite Three Floyd’s, but definitely a good overall beer.

Toasty hay aroma. Lots of floral and citrus notes as well. Medium sweetness, with heavy bitter flavor balanced well with a nice sour character and a great smooth finish that balances all the flavors. Great great IPA!!!
