Bottle. Dark amber color medium white head. Complex aroma of sweet malt and hops. Flavor was very good and finish was strong with small bite. Good beer to use as my 100 beer rated on this page. Great service.

A nicely balanced pale ale, with lots of citrus overtones and a bitter hoppy finish. Very drinkable.

Koelschtrinker (9996) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 5, 2011
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

Maria (9963) - Thisted, DENMARK - FEB 3, 2008
Thank you Daniel TheCheeseMan! Red-golden with a huge, nice and creamy head. The aroma is wonderfully hoppy with loads of spruce, fruit, citrus and caramel. The flavour has citrus, pomelo, oranges, spicy mango, papaya, caramel and a nice, slightly dry, bitterness in the finish. This is a really, really nice beer!

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.

Bottled: Orange golden coloured. Light brown medium head. Well lasting. Flowers, herbs and hops in the nose. Goood. Is very well hopped in the flavour. Citric and flowery. Is a little thin in the body, but ends on a very nice long lasting sweet bitterness. Quite refreshing. Good one.
