Slightly off color amber to orangish, white head, some lacing, hop aroma, flavor is lightly malty, moderately hoppy, bitter finish. Pleasant enough

Pours a cloudy orange hue with a small slight off-white head with decent lacing. Aromas of hops, similar to the alpha king, pineapple, grain, a nice tinge of pine. Mouthfeel is medium bodied. The flavor is good until the finish, when it finishes a little dusty,dirty, cardboardy, but maybe I have an old bottle. The flavor lingers on the palate. Aside from the bad, the flavors range from straw, citrus, and a hint of spice.

(bottle) Medium deep gold with medium off white head. Nice hops aroma. Flavor is well balanced with plenty of malt but too hoppy for a "mild" (lovely pine hops). More of an American Pale Ale. Still really good.

Not exactly "mild" in my book - no, this isnít Alpha King hoppy, but they are present and they are delicious. Great drinkability - could be an everyday beer.

Iím surpised by the low score on this beer. I really enjoyed it. It had a big hoppy aroma, great malt flavor without much bitterness. Really good.

Thanx to Duane! Poured a yellow gold with hints of brown, with thick white head. The piney, skunky hops kicked me in the nose before the pour was finished. the nose doth not lie, there be hops in here. But not over powering. Good smooth finish, with a light mouth feel. The hops float up to me nasal passages, and remain behind bring thought of spring. This really capped a February day that hit 58o. Cool huh?

Golden/light orange body, medium off-white head. Big piney hops aroma with biscuity malt, toast, and a touch of grapefruit. Sharp, crisp, fresh hoppy flavor, dominated by pine and, to a lesser extent, grapefruit rind, complemented by biscuity, toasty malts. More of an APA/borderline IPA than a mild ale, but this is Three Floyds! Quite nice.

every beer these guys make is very hop infested (which isnt a bad thing :) ) brownish red colored pour. malty and hoppy nose as well as taste. low alcohol content is slightly deciving (seems like there was more). something i wish i could get all the time around here, but with their small distrobution that will be hard to do :)

UPDATED: FEB 12, 2005 This has the same hop profile as their APA, strong pine/citrus. A light gold color with a small white head. I found this very drinkable, then again I had it on cask, which may have some influence. This fits all the parameters of a good session beer. Upon further tasting this has the best hop/malt balance of the 3F beers while maintaining the distinctive 3F hop profile.

The more I have this, the more I like it. Not really mild, only by comparison to the taste explosions usually provided by the Floyds. Stands on its own as a drinkable, well-balanced beer. Still a good hop presence with a slight bitter finish.
