Draft at brewpub loved this beer. Aroma was tropical fruits with light herbal aroma. The flavor is delicious with notes of mango, orange, lemon, grass and light spicyness. Absolutely phenominal pale ale.

Maybe I just haven’t gotten on the citra bandwagon but this APA didn’t excite me all that much. A solid offering with the typical hop bite we have all come to expect from Three Floyds it did not leave me wanting more. The semi-tropical notes of mango, pine, and citrus hold the attention for a while but I soon found myself moving on to the next tap in search of a more interesting discovery.

UPDATED: OCT 15, 2011 Big thanks to Deuane for picking me up a growler of this one during his recent trip through the brewpub. A - Pours slightly hazed golden orange with a nice one finger tall white head leaving S - HUGE amounts of grapefruit throughout this one. Tons of oily citra hops dominate the nose with a bit of lightly toasted sweet caramel malt hiding in the shadows. The second we cracked this growler I could smell it from across the room. T - Starts off with a huge, oily, citric hop bite quickly giving way to a mix of strong tropical fruits like grapefruits, pineapple, and oranges. Once the hop resins die down you get a bit of the chewy, lightly toasted, caramel malt but this one really is all about the hops. The alcohol is nearly undetectable, only coming through at the very end of each glass. The finish is a mix of citric hop oils and some light chewiness, lingering for some time. M - Medium-Light body and flavor with moderate carbonation. Lots of hop oils and some light chewiness in the feel, lingering through the finish. Even with all these hops it remains quite light. O - Well that growler disappeared pretty damn quick. I could drink this one all day, every day, it is that good. The citra hops are the perfect choice for this beer and this is easily one of the best hop-forward pale ales I have ever had.

Served on draft at the brewpub. Pours a slightly hazy copper color with a large creamy offwhite head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of big citrus, resin and earthy hops, some spiciness and caramel malts. The taste is bitter citrus hops, earthy notes and a malty caramel backbone. Medium bodied. Well balanced. Very nice.

GTMW. Orange. Big Citra aroma - fruity apricot, mango, pine - as well as, some caramel malt. Clean, well-rounded hop flavor and bitterness. Inter-mingled fruit flavors. Clean bitter finish. Best use of Citra I’ve tasted.

UPDATED: DEC 2, 2011 On tap at Great Taste of the Midwest. Huge hop aroma... super dank, citrus, and more. Equally awesome hoppy flavor that still manages to be light enough to be refreshing and enjoyable. Very good!

Re-rate 12/2/11. 12oz bottle via cbfobes! Thanks, dude! MAN, this stuff is awesome. Huge pine and lemon peel/citrus in the aroma with an equally hoppily delicious flavor. Like I said in my original rating from GTMW... still light bodied enough that you can throw these back. This is delicious and I could drink gallons of it. Shit, this is good.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear orange with a thick white head. Aroma of sweaty, stinky, grassy hops, a hint of sweet fruits, jam, and citrus. Flavor of pale malts, some toasted malt, grassy and earthy hops, bready malt, jam and light fruits. Interesting IPA - not crazy hoppy but plenty of malt, fruity notes, orange and citrus. 8/4/8/4/14 [3.8/5]
