Excellent IPA. Very hoppy, yet nice malt balance.

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

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.

If I could have one beer for the rest of my life, it would be this one!! Awesome malt and hop characters that are perfectly balanced. I pair this beer with so many foods as well. Call it what you want, and IPA or an APA, this beer is a must have!

Dark copper/amber with a good sized beige head and it has some lacing. The aroma has a lot of hops and some malt. I get juicy grapefruit from the hops and a slight caramel maltiness in the background. It becomes slightly sweet and malty and then the hops finish up with a well balanced bitterness.

Awesome appearance of cloudy brown and copper awesomeness. unfortunately this didn’t knock my socks off except for the color. very lacking aroma, not super bitter or hoppy taste. definitely a great beer, and i will try it again to make sure, but it was relatively uneventful in flavor for a beer that is rated so highly on here. normal IPA flavor and body in general

Poured from a bottle. Golden amber hue with white pillowy head and laces nicely. Bread and caramel in the malt sweetness. Big bouquet of citrus, orange marmalade, and pine in the nose. Strong assertive bitterness that softens quickly.

This APA is a definite winner. A gorgeous amber colour. A fruity flavour, slightly malty. A big winner of APA’s.

Pours a hazy orange. Small head that dissipates quickly. Delicious aroma of grapefruit and malts. Lemony citrus flavors with a good hop bitterness at the end. This one is approaching a light IPA. Smooth and dry. Medium mouth feel with high carbonation to help round out the bitterness. Fantastic beer!

(bottled). Dark copper, brilliantly clear. Huge, catty grapefruit and other citrus aroma. Medium-full bodied beer leads with big malt and a piney, pungent bitter finish. Smooth, lingering persistent bitterness is giant, but somehow doesn't overwhelm the malt. This is damn good beer.
