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.

bhensonb (13528) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 10, 2009
Bottle from Archer Liquors. Copper color with a large beige head that collapsed with a bit of lace. Huge citrus/cat pee aroma. Can’t even smell malt. Medium body with creamy carbonation. Flavor is mildly citric hop over some light malt. But that doesn’t mean it’s not hoppy. There’s a lot of florality. I think this is one of those fresh hop beers, and I think this bottle must be rather fresh. Really hops the mouth. Great mouthfeel.
