UPDATED: DEC 20, 2006 Hey, what can I say, its good stuff. Copper color. Small white head. Smells good. I could drink a lot of it. Lots of better beers out there, but this is a great pale ale.

Reddish-brown,small off white head. Smells of hops and flowers. Lgihter than expected with a watery body and medium carbonation. It finishes bitter with a hopsy tone. The hops are crisp at the begining then muted by a sweetness. Very good but not great.

I was hoping this would be a better beer, but was slighlty disappointed. The aroma was nice, slight citrus; but flavor was nothing special---sorry, but I have had Leinies that tasted better. Maybe the batch was old...? Seemed to taste alittle ’medicine-y’?

This was pretty decent, I was expecting more out of Three Floyds with this one however. Cloudy and warm with a insightful bittering concept. Aroma was weak with a hazy head. Rivers of tingyness also come from within. Overall, it was a good brew, but the characteristics could of been further enhanced.

UPDATED: JUL 13, 2006 Wonderful burnt orange color with huge citrus hops aroma. Tastes like grapefruit/orange/flowers. A sweetness balances the bitterness of the hops, but this can make it seem a bit syrupy. Gets a small hit overall due to expense (compared to other quality APA’s).

I am not a pale ale expert so take my rating with a grain of salt. It’s decent nothing more than that

Strong aroma of citrus hops. Copper color with white head. Strong hoppy flavor with very clean finish. Words really do not give this justice. The best APA I have had.

Very nice aroma. Sweet and like honeydew melon almost. Green and fresh. Mild sweetness with very dry finish. Powdery. Nice! Thanks matta for sharing!

This one seems a bit overrated to me, but that doesn’t mean I don’t like it a lot. From a growler, into a glass. Nice, deer orange and red with a small, well retained head. Lots of hops, mostly of the floral hop character with a bit of pine and citrus in there too. Some berry-ish esters further compliment the modest malty sweetness. Lighter side of medium bodied until you get to the finish, which is ridiculously clean, too much so if you ask me. Lots of hop aroma with very low percieved bitterness. A pleasant, interesting beer that fits any occassion, even though it let me down a little at the end.
