bdigital (658) - Ft Wayne, Indiana, USA - JAN 4, 2011
Draft at Trion...pours a bright gold with a massive white head, nice retention and lacing. Nose consists of a ridiculous amount of citrus, mainly white flesh peaches, pineapple and lemon...a hint of light toasted malt apparent. Medium bodied, flavors are absolutely insane...crazy amounts of peach and pineapple concentrate with a bit of piney bitterness to round it out. Unbelievable brew...here’s to you FFF’s!!

UPDATED: FEB 10, 2012 On tap at the 3F brewpub. Golden orange pour with white head. Aroma of strong citrus, lemon, pine, a bit of odd earthiness. Flavor is dead on: hoppy, mild hop sweetness, delicious and smooth. Nice, medium bodied, the hops really stand out on their own. FInishes hoppy and bitter. Absolutely delicious. ReRate 9/19/11: bumped up a few points. Slowly becoming one of my favorite beers ever.

holdenn (2080) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 29, 2010
On tap @ 3f. Pours a clear copper gold with a white head. Hops pour off the aroma soon as it gets in range. A little cat pissy but lots of lemon and pine. Bitter juicy lemons, grass, and some pine flavors with sweet caramel malts. Soft carbination medium body. So delicious and bitter. It seems like their new good hoppy beers veer away from the grapefruit and pine bombs of yesteryear. Nit sure about the evolution of hoppy beers here. But this one is delicious.

jar72404 (426) - USA - DEC 27, 2010
On tap at brewpub. Aroma is citrus--mainly grapefruit. Flavor is also citrus/grapefruit, with a nice lingering aftertaste. Very smooth, enjoyable, and sessionable beer.

timmy300 (203) - bloomington, Illinois, USA - DEC 24, 2010
lemony goodness, just a hint of pine-cone, assertive cattiness, but not offputting; subtly complex straight forward pale ale.

shrubber85 (7594) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - DEC 22, 2010
UPDATED: MAY 20, 2012 Tap at 3F brewpub. Strawberry/raspberry malt and citrus hops aroma. Dark golden yellow color with small head and nice lacing. Lightly sweet berry malt and lemon peel hops flavor. Nice body. An excellent APA. Bottled - hops seem more forward and malt flavor not quite as strong. Still damn good - too bad that this will be as hard to get as Hopslam.

EddieG (169) - Palos Heights, Illinois, USA - DEC 20, 2010
On tap at the brewpub. Intense floral and citrus aroma is followed by a heavy dose of mango and sweet tangerine flavors and a sharp bitterness at the end. A rather thick mouthfeel for a beer in low 6% ABV range tasting like a more significant IIPA. Notwithstanding, an easy drinking and outstanding pale ale.

pantanap (3357) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 16, 2010
UPDATED: DEC 20, 2010 On tap at three floyds, half-pint... Pours a transparent golden copper penny hue with a creamy frothy white head... Flavors are hop forward with a tropical fruit pacific northwest bent, some tea, with an assertiveness that is to be enjoyed. Doesn’t have a residual sweetness as some other citra focused brews (kern river and one another comes to mind). Earthy bitterness concludes the aforementioned qualities with a hint of sweet crystal malt through the middle which is quick to disperse. Mild bodied overall with carbonation that holds up well if a little lively. Solid.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 15, 2010
Draft at brewpub. Pours amber with dissipating off white head. Nice fruity and citrusy hop aroma. Lighter side of medium bodied with soft carbonation. Flavor of pale american malts, countered but a firm citrusy hop bitterness, Nice!

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 14, 2010
Draft at Three Floyds. Hard to say if this was the highlight this time or if Hell’s Black was. Either way, I love a new hoppy beer from Three Floyds. Just seems right. Pours an attractive reddish bronze with a sticky white head. Nose is incredibly. Great juicy apricot and peach notes, some nice tangelo and a hint of biscuity backbone. West coast in every way. On taste, the bitterness is not astringent at all, but is definitely full on. More juicy fruit notes. Finishes hoppy. Just a fanstastic pale ale. Awesome.
