3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
A: A 12 oz bottle poured into my Firestone Walker pint glass. The beer is a hazy, amber color with little to no head.
S: A great citrus (grapefruit and orange) aroma fills the nose and a mild pine is present as well. There is also a bit of sweet, caramel malt smell coming through.
T: Exceptional flavor for a pale ale! Wonderful bitterness up front and on the finish. There is also quite a bit of citrus in there, but not much in the way of the malt.
M: A fairly light beer on the tongue, but certainly not a bad thing. Good carbonation and a bit of a lingering bitterness.
D: Pale ales are known for their high level of drinkability, and this one is no exception. A very nice beer by Three Floyds.

Bottle. Good caramelly hop aroma. Cloudy red amber colour. Very small off-white head. Good bitterness. Not so sweet, but sweet enough. Grassy hop note, quite caramelly and nice. A bit dry for my tastes, but good.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle, split with manuchampions, pours dark golden orange with a small white head. Aroma is much like an IPA, with citrus hops, strong floral notes and caramel. Flavour is again, on the fence of being an APA and a lighter IPA, with floral notes jumping out, followed by bold citrus hops (for the style) and caramel malt backing. Nothing revolutionary, but for the style, it’s hard to find better ones out there.
