3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Three floyds three kings. Growler thanks to Sean for sharing... Pours
a mostly transparent, semi-hazy, orange pour with a thin soapy white
head... Sweet coconut and assertive tropical fruit. Fresh and semi-
dank. Citra? Really nice aroma... Flavors drop off by a small degree
with a grainy malt presence while the hops play a little less
subordinate role from what the aroma suggests. Citrusy, fairly light, while adding a slight bitter note on the finish. Very drinkable semi-
light from a body perspective. Aroma more alluring than the flavor but
still pretty quaffable. makes for easy drinking but would give the nod to zombie dust if given the choice. solid effort though regardless

aroma is clean sea breeze, hints of citrus and saltines. well developed malt devoid of caramel but bigger on breadiness. appearance is lightly hazed lemon yellow. sticky legs, filmy head with ring. flavor is savory hop presence, sharp citrus present but larger earthiness.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the Brewery. Golden orange pour with medium white head. Aroma of bright, fresh floral hops, with notes orange, tangerine, grapefruit. Some pine and resin notes peak out in the aroma too. Flavor is nice, dry, assertively hoppy. Medium bitterness. Pine and citrus notes mostly across the tongue, with a bit of resin in the finish. This is quite a nice beer, refreshing and very drinkable. A good pale.

Growler thanks to Stfun. Hazy golden pour with think head. Aroma is citrus, clove and spices. Taste is grassy with some citrus and banana notes. Reminds me more of a hefeweizen than a pale. Good flavor and very enjoyable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewpub during Dark Lord Day 2011. Pours a clear, golden-yellow colored body with a finger-width, frothy, white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing throughout. Aroma is very floral and citrusy with lots of sweeter tangerines and some grapefruit-lemons. Solid caramel sweetness to balance with a touch of bread. Some light piney resins as well. Flavor is similar. Big time floral citrus up front with some juicy tangerines and grapefruits. A light lemon in there too. Sweeter pale malts and caramels to balance while remaining light. Finishes with a medium-light, floral, somewhat piney, juicy citrus that dries and leaves a lengthy aftertaste. Lighter body and a moderately lively, crisp carbonation. Overall, a very nice pale ale. Lots of citrusy florals and an easy drinking, crisp body. Fresh, hoppy, and fairly juicy with lots of flavor. Nice beer.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft on tap at the brewpub (Munster, IN). Pours a well hazed golden dulled pour, with a good haze, some more sunny edges, moderate frothy offwhite head atop that dies to a thick filmy layer, laces pretty well. Aromas are a nice citrusy melange, lemon bent, lemon rind, fruit, and zest with touches of grapefruit, orange, florals, some light grassiness, melon and moving into some light bready malts, some dough, pale malts, and crackers. Quite fruity on the nose, melon and some tropical fruit working into the fold as it warms. Nice. Initial is lighter bodied it seems, some vibrant bitter lemon fruit, some rind, lemon cookies, light tropical bite and some soap, florals. Moderate bitterness holds on through bread, Pale malts, touches of bread, crackers, some touches of biscuits. Finish is soapy and floral, lingering fruitiness, lemon rind and dry bitterness of decent quality to moderate strength holds on. A well hopped pale that leaves some elements lingering, isnít all that complex. A good hop profile, does itís job. Solid pale that isnít complex, but is tasty and quaffable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at DLD í11. 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.
