Pours a dark amber with a medium sized head. There is a lot of nice lacing. Aroma is of hops and citrus with some grapefruit. Flavor is very complex for this style. there is a lot of hop bitterness mixed with some sweetness from fruits. The finish is very smooth. My favorite APA.

Hazy orange color with a moderate tan head.The aroma is citrus, pine and grapefruit tang, but a malty sweetness is also present. Hoppiness is present throughout the taste with some malty richness filling in the finish. Well balanced.

Hazy light amber color with a foamy off-white head. No real retention and lacing. Nice Citrus hop presence. Sweet and Hoppy with a nice hop after taste. Mouth filling without over doing it. If you like hops this beer will fill your mouth with the flavor and not let go till after it’s down your gullet I’m very glad I have many more of these!!!!

Predominantly bitter flavor balanced by hints of citrus and malty sweetness. Very nice blend of subtle sweetness with the bitter flavor of the hops. Golden pour. Very hoppy and slightly flowery aromas. Low head. Light body. Very fine and highly recommended beer.

Pours a cloudy orange-amber with <1/2 finger head. Smell is hoppy– pine and citrus, with caramel and biscuit malts. Taste is the same but kicked up a bit and more enjoyable; very well balanced. Smooth mouthfeel, medium body and carbonation.

Great beer a little big for a pale but none the less a wonderful pine hop aroma and great light malty biscuit flavor with great hop taste and finish.

Poured from the 12oz bottle with psychadelic green and pink cap which indicates it was brewed and bottled at the actual Three Floyd's Brewery in Munster, IN. Smells beautiful of hop fruity juiciness. Big hops up front with citrus flavors, very floral, and is also backed up with some nice balancing malt. Very sweet, fruity, but the finish is dry and bitter and clean. One awesome American Pale Ale, the flavors are great the smell is intoxicating on its own, and the body is full and heavy enough without being too heavy. I highly recommend this one, I've had it bottled as well as on tap. If you're ever out one night and see this on tap, yeah, order it up
