3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap @ Hopleaf. Poured an amberish brown with tan head. Aroma of nuts, carmel. Taste is light hops, carmel malts, light cirtus and earthy tones. A bit soft but easy to drink. Just alright for a Chicago summer afternoon.

amazingly, this beer was on cask at Pizza Port San Clemente. It was mildly hoppy, with a hint of spiciness. It would be interesting to have it on a regular tap.

4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Kind of upset that this brew gets very little love. I couldn’t get enough of it when it was out, and i consider myself to be a advanced three floyd’s imbiber. Nice dark amber color with slight red hue. Decent off white foamy head. Huge floral aroma. Slight bitterness but it pops a little in a good way. Finish is, well, flowers. Sounds weird, but I really hope they brew this gem again.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at 2009 DLD: Slightly hazy light coppery hue with a frothy head and good lace. The aroma has notes of grassy and herbal hops, some pine. grapefruit and mango, biscuit and caramel malts, touch of pepper. The taste follows suit with a moderate hop forward character and balanced malt overtones. Some fruity acidity and hop spice but not in your face either. The mouth feel is sprite and refreshing, slight astringency upon the finish. A good example of an APA.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at DLD ’09. Pours a slightly hazy golden orange body with a finger-width, white, fluffy head that dissipates slowly and leaves a generous lacing. Aroma is mostly the standard FFF floral citrus. Lots of hops in this consisting mostly of grapefruits and lemons. Some light malts, but mostly hops. Flavor is very hoppy, similar to the aroma. Lots of citrus, earthy bitterness. Some very light caramels up front, but again, mostly hops. Palate is light to medium bodied with a soft carbonation and a moderate pine linger. Overall, a decent enough beer with a lot of hop flavor, but a little off balance IMO and unimpressive.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft @ DLD 09: Pour was a light copper with a medium-sized white head. Nose was pineapple, spruce and light caramel malt. Medium bodied...very dry. Flavor was dead-on with the nose with an emphatic dry, piney finish. Decent stuff.

DLD. Amber pour. Citrus hops, malt and some tropical fruits. Flavor profile is hoppy and fruity. Dry finish is right. Not bad at all.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at The Publican. Orange amber body. Really nice full lacing down the glass. Off-white head. Soapy hoppy aroma with a quite bitter flavor on a light body. Finishes quite dry and lingers.
