Beautifully crafted beer from 3 Floyds. Light to moderate hop. Hard to believe this not an IPA. Well done. Iíve had Dreadnaught, and this trumps that.

Pours a clear light golden with 3 finger head that lingersand leaves moderate lacing. Aroma of bright toasted hops, maybe a little biscuit and a huge dose of grapefruit hops. Heavy bitter throughout with long bitter finish. Full body, chewy, slightly oily mouthfeel. This is a great one!

Bottle. Thanks Kevin! Pours hazy amber with a medium white head. Great floral and citrus hop aroma with hints of caramel and tropical fruits. Nice hop flavor of florals, citrus, light tropical fruit and light pine without being overwhelming. Similar finish with more pine coming through. An awesome APA.

sfontain (851) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 29, 2013
12 oz bottle, thanks Ryan. Almost unnoticeably hazy amber; very large white, frothy, rocky head dissipates into a sparse covering and a medium to large ring; heavy lacing. Aroma is warm and toasty with sweet malt, grapefruit, pine sap, and barely a hint of caramel. First taste makes me think this is going to be another unbalanced hop bomb, but over time this thing really smooths out; more pine and citrus here but it gets more drinkable after sitting a bit; very lengthy orange/pine finish with light caramel. Really impressed with the body; heavy carbonation but itís full and smooth and almost creamy; light stickiness; does thin out a bit after sitting out once the carbonation bleeds out. The 100/100 score on this one suggests a great number of raters are on drugs, but this is outstanding and probably really does deserve 99th-100th percentile in the APA category. (But 100 overall? Come on...) Shame this is so hard to get; guess Iíll have to live with Alpha King...

Rando7 (777) - Iowa, USA - APR 28, 2013
Bottle pours light orange with two finger head and nice lacing. Aroma mainly of citrus/pine hops. Taste sweet malts with citrus/hop bitterness coming in. Prolonged hoppy finish but not overbearing. Iím not a big hop head but this is pretty good and very refreshing.

esox (1226) - Oulu, FINLAND - APR 26, 2013
Bottled. Pale amber colour, lacy and creamy head. Citrusy, sligly piney and juicy fruity hop nose with blackberry and currant notes. Taste starts with light caramel flavor but it is soon eaten out by bitterness. Lingering, very smoothly bitter finsh. Medium body, super fresh and smooth palte. Dangerously well balanced APA.

dresden (1354) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - APR 25, 2013
Bottle. Hazy rusty orange, with a big fluffy sticky head that laces all the way down. Aroma is well citra hops - citrusy, lemon, peach. Body is node medium malty, slightly sweet but really well balanced. There a lot of single hop citra beer out there but the malt bill here is really really nice. Great APA, but Iím not sure about so e of these crazy numbers this beer is receiving.

UPDATED: JAN 26, 2015 -Bursts out of bottle/glass with distinct citrus aroma -Pours a perfect orange -Taste is follows the aroma’s lead but slightly toned down (still very intense for a pale ale!). Surprisingly drinkable despite its intensity.

Amazing nose of citrus fruits and pineapples. Cloudy orange pour with a Nicky white head. Taste is of much the same as the nose. Very good with a nice bitter finish.

Bottle. Not sure how fresh but still great. Pleasant citrus aroma. Nice looks, head and lacing. Not too grapefruity. Leaves you craving more. Long crisp bitter finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
