Pours from a bomber as a light orange slightly cloudy with a thin yet persistent white head. Heavy grapefruit aroma, citrus. Nice citrus flavor, too. Aftertaste is a bit harsh.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
3 Floyds back at Chuck’s! Life is good in Chagrin Falls as these guys are finally back in OH. Interesting label that I hope grows on me as I sip this beer. Pours cloudy, honey colored, medium to light, whitish head. fair amount of carbonation & lacing. grapefruit, citrus, perfume, freshness from the wet hopping on the nose. more of that wet hop resinous flavors up front on the taste. some honey sweetness and wheat in there and light to medium bitterness on the finish. not a lot of malts to balance out the hops but this is a solid harvest ale. Cheers to Oct. and football season.

Bottle with Doodler and Co. Thanks everyone! Light yellow appearance with a big fluffy, off-white head. Slightly piney, orange citrusy, hoppy aroma. Sweet pale malty, mild citrusy, piney, organic hoppy flavor. Tasty beer.

Bomber. Pours a somewhat cloudy copper color with a thick and very creamy white head. The aroma is mostly oranges and sweet malty notes and bit of orange jam. The flavor is very nice; sweet oranges, lemon, very light bitterness, superbly drinkable, not aggressive in the least, reminds me a bit of an English bitter with suped up qualities.

While it was super hoppy and had a great aroma, I wasn’t too enthused with it. I drank a few and it did go well with the Brewer’s Pie. Unbalanced, but what you’d expect from a fun experiment in hop-overload-ness. I hope they continue with this Harvest Ale tradition!

Pours a rich orange with a nice robust white head. The aroma is very powerful. Fruity, hoppy, very much like a Dreadnaught. The taste is surprising in comparison to the aroma. I was expecting to be overpowered by it. That was not the case. It’s very smooth and appropriately bitter. Nice beer.

Poured from a 22oz bottle and served in a shaker. This beer poured a mostly clear amber with a lasting, one finger beige head. Some very nice, sticky lacing was left around the glass. The aroma of the beer was made up of sweet and spicy citrus and pine notes, and also some sweet, lightly roasted caramel. The flavor included a huge hop profile that was smooth and not overly bitter or astringent. Huge notes of grapefruit rind were followed up and balanced out by some caramel and toffee. The drink was medium-bodied with mild carbonation providing a soft mouthfeel. A very tasty IPA/harvest ale.
