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!

Color a little light, and flavor after is pretty bitter quick.Very hoppy. Good lacing, very drinkable, Not my favorite from 3 Floyds but still a great beer from a great brewery.

I'm not great at describing the aroma and complexities in the taste. You can get that from the other reviewers. What I can say is that this is an extremely drinkable beer. A lot of 3F's offerings are a little too much for frequent consumption, but this is in my regular rotation. This might be my favorite summer beer.

Bottle from Santa ;-) - many thanks, Blafa! The beer pours out in a light cloudy amber colour with steady head and medium body. Wonderful aroma of hops and vanilla. Taste of fresh, ripe hops, citrus, spruce, coriander, pink pepper and malt. Medium dry, light bitter finish - great beer. Easy and nice to drink, delicious, refreshing AND quaffable.

Bottle. Poured pale amber with a medium-sized off-white head. Aroma and flavor are well-balanced between the lovely Citra hops (tropical fruits and citrus) and a deep caramel. Medium body. Extremely drinkable. Extraordinary beer.

I wanted to try this beer because of all the hype. Got one in a trade with evil cougar (thanks Jeff). Pours a golden honey color with small white head. Leaves lacing on glass. Beautiful citrus aroma. Sweet malty taste upfront followed by bitter citrus finish. Creamy mouthfeel with excellent carbonation. If I was a pale ale fan this would be my favorite beer. Well made excellent beer.

This is a 65kg wrestler kicking asses of 50-55kg wrestlers. Definitely one of the best if not the best "APA", but closer to Pliny than to Sierra Nevada pale ale. After drinking a few Three Floyds bitter american ales from APA to IIPA you can definitely taste a house flavor. Yeast seems English and similar to Firestone Walker. Tropical fruit and citrus on the nose with the standard grapefruit bitterness from Citra. A great beer.

I feel like this beer is truly one of a kind. I was lucky enough to score a few of these bad boys and enjoyed them 100%. Pours perfectly with bright orange color and a large head. Smells like grapefruit and marijuana. I can not explain this. I get lemongrass, spice and a perfect malt to balance the hops out. I like that this sits in under 7% because I often find that I want to continue drinking beers like Rampant by New Belgium or Hop Juice by Left Coast, but I can’t handle more than 3 beers in a quick sitting. If I want IPA, I want this. Always. Just sucks it’s so limited. Hands down the best Pale Ale I’ve had in a very, very long time.
