On tap @ 3F DLD. Pours a hazy amber orange with a small head. Hops, yeast and citrus fill my nose to remind me of ..... dare I say cat piss. Citrus and carmel balance each other out in the flavor with some bitterness. Decent beer.

On tap at 3 floyds. Aorma of fruit loops hardcore. Had a lemony taste to it with the fruitloops coming through also> Not bad and had some good bitterness to it.

On tap @ Three Floyd’s: Pours a hazy gold with no head. Aroma, citrusy, grapefruit, some yeast. Flavor, bready, citrus, lemon, grapefruit, and a good bitterness. Kinda juicy. Pretty solid, but the name was the best part.

OhioDad (2493) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - APR 29, 2007
On tap at the brewpub - Pours bright amber without much head. Aromas of orange and grapefruit mostly. Interestingly enough someone I was there with said it had a fruit loop aroma and I honestly could pick that up too. Flavor is grapefruit, pine, and a good amount of malt behind it. Quite a balanced IPA. Not bad..

TomDecapolis (4445) - Milton, Delaware, USA - APR 27, 2007
On tap at the FFF brewpub. Pours a hazy golden orange with a medium creamy/bubbly white lacing head. Aroma of pine, grapefruit, cereal grains, Cheerios, fruity and a grainy maltiness. Flavor of grapefruit, mango, pine, caramel, lemon, great malt/hop balance, tropical fruits and on the dry side. Less sweet maltiness going on when held up against the Alpha King and Dreadnaught.

Cornfield (5460) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - APR 13, 2007
This is, believe it or don’t, a fairly well balanced IPA from 3F. And with only 75 IBUs. Of course, according to the brewpub menu, it was "made by magic transforming robots," so that might explain it. It’s hazy pale apricot in color with a slender white head. Nice lacing. It has a nose of solid PNW hops (Surprize!) with a sweet grainy malt scent struggling to get out. The flavor starts up with sweet pale malts but is soon overcome by grapefruit and a touch of pine. Nice lingering, bitter finish. Oddly, served in a half pint glass at whole pint costs. Good, though.

tjthresh (1865) - Greenfield, Indiana, USA - APR 8, 2007
On tap at the brewpub. Something with some balance from the Floyds? Unbeleivable. Hazy yellow with some white head. All of the aromas and flavors work pretty well together. Kind of herby and toasty. Easy to drink.

This was on tap at FFF and i tried it to see how it ranks with their other IPA,it was not bad but seemed rather light for an IPA.I will re-rate again after trying again CHEERS to the guys for trying new things.I like experimental beers especially from FFF.
