On tap at Hopleaf in Chicago. A bit dark in there, but looked like a bright orange pour with a half-finger white head. Massive citrus and tropical fruits on the nose, perfect sweetness (meaning not too much). Slick palate. Tasty and massively drinkable.

MacBoost (1279) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - MAY 31, 2012
Pours a clear gold color with a 1 finger white head consisting of tight bubbles. Aroma is very citrusy, floral. Very impressive aroma. First sip lands me gentley in a field of flowers in bloom, poppys, iris, lillies, and then suddenly an orange falls off the tree and hits me in the head. More and more citrus fruit keeps falling, until I look like Carmen Miranda. Beautiful. A strong malt backbone holds this all together until the bitter end. Very well executed beer, and deserving of its high ratings.

One of the best beers Iíve ever had regardless of style. Iím unsure if Iíve been so taken aback by any beers quite this much lately. Worth the accolades it gets, and then some. If this was available near me, Iíd have a case tomorrow

UPDATED: AUG 2, 2012 Holy sh**!! Now, this is what I call a nose. Fresh fruits, citrus peel, trident gum, trolli gummi peach rings, pepper and other spices, floral undertones, caramelized sugar, and a faint whisper of eucalyptus. The body is almost thick for an undead pale ale, very good. On the tongue, the flavors are endless, sharper than those of the Alpha King, but just as good. The parade of bitter and sweet ends with slight funk and leaves a fresh, sugary, citrusy aftertaste under the palate. Speaking of the AK, I would say this beer just edges it out on account of its fuller body. A sensational beer, which goes to show what a fantastic brewery 3floyds is. Iíd love to sit back and go to town on a bunch of these f*ckers all day. Which is why itís a bummer that merely procuring them is an ordeal.

Minderbinder (1795) - Quťbec, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 27, 2012
Bottle 355ml. Pours dark golden with low offwhite head. Nice lacing. Aroma is of malt, extreme citrus, tropical fruits, mango, peach. Very intense. Taste is of malt, citrus, fruit explosion, mango. Full bodied, perfect balance. The bitterness tickles the tongue. Alchool well-hidden.Incredibly good, I raise my hat.

ddemmingjr (704) - Chagrin Falls, Ohio, USA - MAY 25, 2012
Bottle picked up through Chucks by way of DLD. Pours hazy, pale golden, fair amount of carbonation. Dense, bright white head. Nose- wow, first 10 spot. Grapefruit, white pepper, orange zest, mango, herbal notes. On the palate, medium to heavy bodied, bready malts, white grapefruit, touch of honey, fresh green, pineapple hops. Subtle bitterness and dryness on the finish. Just impeccably put together and balanced. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz bottle. Finally got a 6 pack of this at Dark Lord Day 2012! Pours a very nice dark golden color with a small off-white head. Smells of citrus, hops, citrus, malt, and citrus; absolutely phenomenal smell that you just want to keep smelling; literally on the first sniff, I said "Holy Shit!". Very good taste too, lots of citrus (especially on the aftertaste), though the hops arenít as profound as in the aroma. Decent body to it. Overall an outstanding APA/IPA, and the only disappointing thing is that I canít get this as often as I wish.

12 oz bottle given to me as a gift from my friendly beer store manager. Pours a hazy orange with slight amber hue, thick white head, decent lacing. Aroma is wonderful of citrus hops, a slight malt backbone, pine, resin, peaches, and pears. Flavor matches well and makes for a great drink. Pale ale would be a stretch though. It is a very good IPA.

gEUS (1055) - Linden, BELGIUM - MAY 23, 2012
UPDATED: JUL 18, 2012 330 ml bottle with gold wax - pours golden with a foamy, lasting eggshel white head. Subtle aromaís of peach, lytchee, orange zest, citrusy, hint of vanilla, peach. Medium body with subtle bitterness, touch of sweetness and a loong fresh finish. Taste is very fruity in the front and the mid with coffee and chocolate towards the finish, keeping the bitter notes of the latter two in the end. Nice beer indeed.
