4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle 355 ml. Thanks to dountcounttoday! Pours hazy golden/light amber with a small white head and some lacing. Color is beautiful. Aroma is impressive! Strong notes of tropical fruits, peach(!), mango, hops, floral and herbal. Very complex, probably the best aroma i’ve seen in a beer so far! Taste is like aroma, but lighter. Tropical fruits. Slight bitterness, but not overwhelming. Mouthfeel is creamy. Medium to full body. This one is a great beer. High drinkability, refreshing, great complexity, nice balance, nose is perfect...wow!

bottle, honey color, mild lacing, crisp APA, with a hoppy bite.
A sip is worth a thousand words, Crisp clean Citra hops put the smack down. Get some.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Got in a trade from FullObs...thanks, Brett! This is awesome. Worth the hype. Grass and sweet orange rind leap out of the bottle at arm’s length when I opened this. Mild, fading head and almost no lacing. Pretty light amber. Nose is distinct and clean, turning out some honey as it warms. Super clean, crisp finish with lingering mouthwatering bitterness. Medium body-normally would want a bit more, but it works great here.

tap. Slightly hazy amber, small head..
Scent is strong grapefruit, hops..
Taste is grapefruit, pine...nicely fruity...some sweetness amongst the citrus hops.
Wonderfully smooth, yet bitingly hoppy.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
200ml from tap at Mikkeller Bar. Almost clear amber coloured body. Patchy surface. Fragile lacing. Inviting aroma of fresh fruity hops. Fresh oranges entwined with pineapples in flavour and supplemented by a mild touch of malty sweetness. Rounded and smooth bitter ending. Exquisite drinkability and very refreshing (Copenhagen, 09.05.2012).

Thanks to Jason for sharing this bottle! Pours a slightly hazy dull gold color. Small off white head that goes to thin topping with a larger ring. Smell is pineapple, tropical fruit - it smells pretty inviting. Taste is more subtle then nose, nice tropical, finishes very dry with a very mild hop bite. Light + body, nice carbonation level - pretty smooth. Overall a delightful pale ale.

This beer is as awesome as you’ve heard.
Being in Chicago, I am able to keep a small supply , and I regularly give people their first taste-- I have yet to have anyone say it’s anything less than incredibly tasty.
Doesn’t matter if they’re into hoppy beers or not, which is how I see it as well-- I don’t view this as a particularly "hoppy" beer, although it does use some unique hop flavors as centerpiece.
My favorite thing about it, and many others have said the same thing, is the carbonation. Absolutely amazing tiny, champagney bubbles that are still somehow as delicate as some of the flavors.
Awesome, awesome beer.

UPDATED: SEP 2, 2012 Pours a hazy golden orange with a two finger head, nice lacing, good looking beer. Aroma of citra hops, citrus fruits especially grapefruit. Taste follows nose malts present to back up hop bitterness but still allow the hops to shine. Smooth and easy to drink with little alcohol presence.

Three Floyd’s best beer to date. I would recommend it to anyone who likes a pale ale with a strong flavor of hops.
