Draft at Pub in Ida Noyes. Clear copper with thick, creamy off-white head. Aroma is pine and grapefruit, but fruity and not too sharp. Flavor is wonderful, grapefruity, floral, and balanced with caramelly malts in the middle. Very long, interesting flavor profile. Mouth feel is incredible, creamy and rich with the perfect amount of carbonation. There is no unpleasant aftertaste. This beer is rich and interesting, but also makes a great session brew. One of my all time favorites, and the benchmark for all other APAs.

Pours a copper/brown with a thin tanish head. Aroma consists of grapefruit, citrus, and pine. Tastes of citrus and pine, but you also get a bitter bite at the end. I get more of an IPA than a pale ale, but either way this is a terrific beer. Nice work FFF!

Draft from Three Floyds Brewpub. Amazing citrusy hop aroma and flavor with a good bitterness. Quite possibly my favorite beer.

This is definately one of the best APA’s out there. Intesely rich and flavorful, but not out of balance. Floral, citrusy, rich malt but not sweet. Are you sure this isnt IPA?

12oz bottle poured into craft pint glass. No bottled on date. Aroma: resin, floral, citrus, grapefruit, leaves, caramel, earthy Appearance. reddish copper color with 1 finger of white head that faded quickly. hardly laces glass. not cloudy. Taste: mild sweet, medium sour, medium bitter Palate: medium body, thin texture. lively carbonation. finish is mild sour and medium bitter. bitter remains longer than the sour but isnt overpowering Overall: One of the best pale ales I’ve had which usually isn’t my favorite style. Was expecting it to be much more bitter. Lots of flavor and enjoyable. Had a friend pick this bottle up for me and bring it back from Indiana. I would get more in the future next time I’m through Indiana. This is my first Three Floyds beer and looking forward to trying more eventually.

Its silly to add much to what has already said. Practically an IPA, just more drinkable. Fantastic beer that well deserves its reputation.

My first 3 floyds beer didnt disappoint! Pours a reddish amber with a thick off white head. Nice lacing. The smells detected are piny hops, citrus, and small doses of sweet malts. Taste is the some very hoppy and citrusy. Great hop profile for a standard pale ale! Medium bodied easy drinker with lots of flavor. A+ on this one!
