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.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Muffig hopfig, gleichsam auch malziger Antrunk. Der Hopfen wird zwar stärker, bleibet aber muffig, das malz wird dagegen schwächer. Das Bier insgesamt ist in Ordnung, wirkt aber auch wegen der Trockenheit eintönig. Erdig zum Ende, eine leichte Whiskeynuance ist vorhanden. Geht in Ordnnung. 7/9/8/9/10/8

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.

Taste is hoppy (pine/grapefruit) -- going for broke and taking no prisoners. Medium body. (7/4/7/3/14)
