COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An American pale ale was brewed with our friends and co-political activists at Sun King Brewing Co. This beer was brewed to raise awareness about our legislative push to redefine what a micro brewery is in Indiana. Under 2010 law, small breweries were limited to 20,000 barrels. Thanks to the work of Sun King and other Indiana craft brewers this was raised to 30,000 barrels on April 11, 2011. Although this is a great gain more work needs to be done with legislature to help craft beer grow in Indiana. Call your representative to let them know what valuable small businesses craft breweries are.

On draft at DLD ’11 A smooth, refreshing, and flavorful pale ale. Nice amounts of citrus / hops with moderate bitterness. I’m glad I got to try this one, good stuff.

dumontn (529) - CHICAGO, Illinois, USA - APR 23, 2011
Draft at 3F brewpub. Pale gold and slightly cloudy with a delicate and quickly disappating head. Mild citrus hop nose, slight pine. Very full body for a pale ale, notes of honey and citrus. Refreshing and easy drinking. A great middle of the road offering from floyds but nothing to write home about.

On tap at DLD ’11. A refreshing pale here. Although this is a collaboration ale, 3Fs hops are clearly showcased here. Body is hazy and golden orange, with a pillowy off-white head. There are a lot of similarities here with the Dreadnaught second running, though the 3 kings has a fuller body. Quite fruity and citrusy in general, there are also so decent notes of light grass, herb, and buttery grains. Not bad overall, with a good hop profile, but slightly one sided in the same regard.

If this were the standard for Pale Ale we would all be a little happier in life.

aroma is hops, sweet, citrus. one finger head disipates to thin ring. Straw color, clear, nice head, semi cloudy. High hops, low malt. Woody, piney, and citrus taste. Palate is crisp, clear, and refreshing. This one was different with the piney and citrus taste. A must try!
