Iím becoming a big fan of Three floyds. great hop flavor and even better hop aroma. Thankfully this is available in PA. Very much worth a try for any one into hoppy beers.

Superhopped pale ale that pours dark orange with a creamy thick head. Aroma of grassy hops and citrus. Flavor is a balance of bitter and floral hops with enough malt to keep it pleasant. still has a lot of punch on the hop end, though. A little light when compared to the appearance, but very refreshing as a result. Great effort.

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

very citrusy, in the aroma, the flavor and the aftertaste. not very hoppy, yet tasty, although i have to say that i found the citrus a little overpowering and could have dealt with less of that.

Pint on draft. Good head on it, with a citrus heavy aroma. Tastes amazing, really citrus and hoppy with a light, clean finish.

As soon as I opened the bottle, my nose was overwhelmed with the aroma of hops. As I began to drink it, sure enough, my mouth was filled with the wonderful flavor of hops. Boiling, aroma, and finishing hops are very apparent in this brew. I really enjoyed it. As for any other flavors, there was a little bit of citrus in it. The color was an orange with an off-white head. I really enjoyed this one.

I tried this beer after reading the posts here. Iíd seen it before but stayed away because of the cheesy graphics on the label. Iíll try not to judge a beer by its label in the future. This is great beer in a style I like. Hoppy, but with enough balance. I just need to take enough starch blockers. This beer was a real treat. If you like Northwest Pale Ales or IPAís give it a try. Canít believe It comes from so close to home. Iím definately doiní the brewery tour.

Another FFF brew thanks to gumballdust. Pours a slightly murky reddish amber. Much darker than I was anticipating. Has a frothy off whit head that seems to be sticking around pretty well. Aroma is heavy on the hops. Pine resin, big floral notes, and hints of sweet citrus. Flavor is slightly more balanced than the aroma was letting on. The hops are still at the forefront of this beer but there is a malty sweetness throughout. Has a bit of a maple syrupy kind of sweetness to it actually. Overall a solid beer. Not sure if it quite lives up to the "100" rating but a solid beer nonetheless.

got via trade from hopsrus. awesome - truely an Imperial Pale Ale without being an India Pale Ale. Lotís of malt, balanced with a healthy (not excessive) amount of hops, backed up with a bit of alchohol. little on the dry side. nice finish. An excellent ale.
