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.

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.

On keg @ Mikkeller Bar during CBC week. The pour’s deep hazy orange with a tiny eggshell white head. The nose is light mango, sea grass, pineapple, solero ice cream, cut grass and flowers. The taste is lightly salty sea grass and lightly caramelized pineapple. There’s nice, buoyant fruity malts with a light, grassy hop finish. The mouthfeel is prickly carbonation, but smooth and easy to drink, slick. Overall, a pretty excellent pale ale. I would drink this often if it was available!
