Tasty little beverage from those A-holes from Three Floyd’s. Effervescent pi aight aroma, a very fresh tasting APA, crisp and smooth. Not Zombie Dust, but this will do.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Slightly hazy copper with a big, beige head. The aroma has a lot of grapefruit zest, some pineapple, and a light resinous pine character. The flavor is similar, but light, and thin in the malt department. Not much bitterness to speak of, in fact this actually finishes quite sweet. Easy drinker though and a total rip off when you consider that fact that I could’ve gotten a six pack of a better beer for the price of a bomber.

I’m a big 3 Floyds fan, but this beer was a letdown. Great aroma and appearance, but lacked body and character. Flavor was watered-down and not what I expected in a pale ale. I’ll stick to their other flagships.

Shared bomber with SHERM1016. Pours a foggy golden; thin head. Nose is mild / grapefruit with a bit of resin / spruce. Quite mild. Sweeter malt offsets the hops.....very tasty.

Pint draft. 3F’s is a hop beast out of the Midwest. This one definitely drinks like an IPA. Aromas of peach, huge pineapple, slight spruce. Flavors of sweet hops on the tongue, toffee notes, tangy spruce. Mid hops on the tongue finished with a mid level bitterness.

Bottle shared by alexsdad06 pour dark copper gold with thin white head. Nose citrus and mango hop with some grainy malt. Deeper into the nose a bit of floral. Taste similar to nose with juicier, sweeter flavors and hops. Early mid palate sweet malt then lighter grain. Pleasing bitter finish. I like the mix of sweeter with the hops.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours lightly hazy copper with a slightly off-white head. The aroma is a nice mix of tropical, citrus and floral hops. There is some dankness and some toasted caramel malt there as well. It has a medium body with some modest carbonation. The flavor begins with a nice balance of cracker malt, piny / citrus hops, light tropical hops, but much more of west coast citrus / pine. The finish is heavy on the grapefruit and still nicely balanced. Great APA.
