Draft at FFF. Bronzed orange color. Foamy, off white head. Medium bodied, some light fruity tones, but somewhat like an imperial lager. Very subtle and malt centered. Sugary and sweet, but still balanced and creamy. Some mild tropical fruit tones. Pretty well done.

Taster at Bavarian Lodge. Bright yellow beer color, lighter than most pale ales. Smell is hoppy, but not too strong, as in, am I sure this is a 3F beer? Thin ring of foam. Taste has light malts to help showcase the hop, which tends toward a delicate flower and a bit of spice, but not the herbal note the menu suggested. A finish of plum and pomegranate.

arkurzynski (1519) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 19, 2011
On tap at FFF. Pale amber in color. Nose is soft floral and citrus hops, brief end of whiff caramel malt. Fairly light citrusy bitterness and good pale/toasted malt finish. Some residual bitterness. Very clean.

A slight aroma of citrus and pine. Smooth with a bitter end...only slightly. Effervesent and crisp. A great gateway into ipas and also to experience a single hop...el dorado.

Draft at Three Floyds Golden see through orange great lacing minimal head. Pilsner smell with biscuit oranges floral hops. Taste like a pilsner, floral hop off bitterness, touch of spice. Medium body medium carb. Very easy to drink however very forgettable.

HonkeyBra (3371) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - FEB 25, 2011
Pours a golden orange hue with a thick, healthy white head. Aroma of citrus, tangerine, melon. Some honey malt, pils, and a light sweet bread. Flavor of mild fruit, mostly melon and apricot. Tangelo. Mild sweetness and low bitterness. Very fruity and easy to drink. Medium bodied, prickly carbonation. Finishes dry and fruity. Another excellent pale from three floyds, although I’m not crazy about the hop showcase here.

hombrepalo (1828) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 14, 2011
Pint pour @ the brewpub. Pale golden pour. The nose is really fresh and herbal. Bright fresh hops aroma and some pale toasted malt. A little bit of soft fruity character. An almost rosemary-like herbaceousness. The beer is lightly sweet and as it warms up a kiss of fruitiness comes out. Pretty decent, unique stuff.

Block (1400) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - MAY 24, 2011
One of the lightest beers I’ve had from Three Floyds. Pretty light on flavor and overall very sessionable. The 7% is hidden surprisingly well for such a light beer. Good with a slightly skewed perspective as I’m comparing this to other Three Floyds offerings.

growler sample - Pours golden with a white head. It smells of lemon and grassy hops. The flavor is mild to moderately bitter hops with sweet, light malts and citrus flavors. It’s mild and easy drinking though as others have noted one usually expects more flavor from 3 Floyd’s. Decent.
