Thanks to GatorGuy92 for sharing this one. Wow. Just when I was beginning to lose faith in Three Floyds. Pours a hazy orange with a white head. Nose is intensely hoppy- lightly floral and a mushroom cloud of piney and bitterly citrus hops. Flavor is similarly explosive hops- massive pine and citrus character with peach, apricot, and floral hops. Light in body and extraordinary character for a 6.2% beer. Absolute home run.

Possibly one of the best Pale Ales I have ever tasted, I spent a good 5 minutes just smelling the hops, I will be looking for this beer as much as possible!!

Super drinkable with a great floral body. This is one of the most drinkable APAs Ive come across. I hope 3 Floyds keeps this one in the regular rotation.

Id almost describe this as a junior version of the 3Fs Arctic Panzer Wolf. Hazy orange color, lots of dankness in the nose, and the Citra really shines for an undead ale. Runs the gamut from citrus and pine to floral. Good mouth feel and an overall keeper. To be fair though, 3Fs rarely does anything that disappoints me.

12oz Bottle. Thanks for sharing James! Super heavy papaya, flint, catty, and piney aroma. A little too much like the flavor of raw, mineral galena to me. Flavors are similar, but laid down a bit and more slippery. Body is not quite there for all this "zombie dust." Is this a Magic the Gathering card or a beer? Does it cost three mana to cast? Or does it have three ounces of Citra hops in it?

12 oz bottle. Generous extra from dougofthefuture. Thanks Doug. Pours a cloudy golden amber with a small white head that has good retention and leaves a small amount of lacing on the glass. The aroma is wonderful. Huge mango, light pineapple, light grapefruit, and some light honey. This is definitely a Citra hopped beer. The initial taste is some sweet mango that goes into a light breadiness with a bit of pineapple. The finish has some biscuit, more mango as well as a light bitterness. Light, slick mouthfeel and a relatively low carbonation. Great beer. I would love to be able to drink this regularly.

I had no idea what to expect from this beer, but I was impressed. Pours cloudy orange with white head. Awesome aroma of citrus hops. Great smooth flavor. This was a damn fine APA. Wish I could have gotten more than 1 six pack.

Quite the gift from Lendi! Smelled like a Christmas tree, full of dry pine scents and dried citrus fruits. The taste was incredible as well, the hop profile was very zesty and fresh with a strong taste of orange peel. Finished dry and refreshed the palate pretty well, very nicely balanced too.

UPDATED: SEP 25, 2011 Incredibly grateful to try this one. A big thanks goes to Lendi, whom some friends and I met at CCBs BA Hunahpu release, that had and shared a bottle of this with us. Cheers!! Smelled like sweet citrus and pine with a "clean" summer breeze smell. Hard to describe, but awesome. Poured a nice golden/light orange color with white colored head. Taste was fantastic with slight pine and citrus notes from the hops and a refreshing light herbal/grassy note. Reminded me of Headwaters Pale Ale but + some. Sooo refreshing and crisp. Could sip on one of these all day and not want anything else.

On tap at a trendy local establishment where some dudes were getting tanked before one of them was getting married (classy). Pours golden-orange with a substantial eggshell head that leaves impressive lacing. Aroma is tangerine and that Three Floyds dirty socks yeast. Taste is quite sweet with plenty of bitter and even a little tartness. Palate is medium, active, with a nice bitter finish. Refreshing yet potent. Hype or no hype, this is a pretty nice beer and worth a shot if you can find it. Not sure if anyone outside of Chicago will be seeing 6-packs in stores, and Im not gonna race all over hells half acre to score some, but I was impressed nonetheless.
