brewskis (123) - Saint John, Indiana, USA - NOV 10, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 2, 2013 Pours a dark orange color with a finger length white head. Dissipates quickly and leaves a nice lacing. Smells of intense, juicy, sweet fruits like pineapple, mango, grapefruit, some peach, tiny bit of floral notes, lots of tropical fruit, sweet carmel. Almost like a bubblegum smell. Taste starts a hefty dose of citrus, sweet, savory fruits like pineapple, mango, and peach, get some floral qualities as well. Very classic floyds taste. Then gets even sweeter with the carmel malts and more fruits. Then finishes with more citrus fruits, even more tropical fruits, more carmel. Nice dry finish. During the entire taste profile, a good amount of hop bitterness lingers. Somewhat bitter, but just so darn smooth, fruity, and refreshing and definitely not as intense as the aroma suggests. Mouthfeel is creamy. Medium body with a good amount of carbonation, which adds to the refreshing quality of the beer. Have had it many times, and never ceases to amaze me. Best session beer on the market.

An orange-golden beer with a small white head. Aroma is pungent citrusy, orange, tangerine. Taste is also very hoppy and dry with some maltiness and fruitiness to balance. Very dry making the bitterness very evident. Very drinkable. An amazing beer

Panzuriel (1785) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - JUN 24, 2016
Location: 12 oz bottle from Chateau wine and spirits Appearance: Brassy. Slightly hazy. Inch of white foam. Nice lace. Nose: Pine hops. Pleasant levels. Not overpowering. Taste: Dry and piney. Hint of sugar at the finish. Good clean hop flavor. Body: Lively and medium to light. Parting thoughts: Suffering from high expectations due to scarcity and reputation, this beer is very good. not world shatteringly though. great label art. The name is also appropriate given the level of dry and earthy impressions a sip leaves you with.

UPDATED: JUN 17, 2016 Bottle. Cloudy orange-gold color with white head. Aroma is citrusy, piney, tropical fruits even, absolutely beautiful! Taste is piney, fruity, slightly bitter finish. Jammy mouthfeel. Worth the hype.

LouisP (108) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 12, 2016
J’ai la chance d’essayer une légende aujourd’hui. Ne me rappelle pas du tout les apa du nord-est, avec une présence très malté. Le houblon est définitivement une arrière-pensée, avec une présence plutôt résineuse, mais discrète en fin de bouche. L’amertume est très basse, ce qui procure au liquide une buvabilité elevée. Au final c’est très bon, mais pas au niveau de mes APAs préférées.

libertine (374) - rochester hills, Michigan, USA - JUN 10, 2016
pours orange amber. Minimal white head. Spotty lacing. Aroma has more citrus and light malt and the flavor is completely the reverse. Medium bodied. Light dry bitter finish. A very drinkable Pale Ale

YanT (2) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 8, 2016 does not count
Nice creamy, foamy head that lingers on and leave a good lacing. Good amber, burnt orange colour to the beer that gives you the desire to plunge into it. The smell, the odor, I’m not sure what it is, but it’s not pleasant for me. It reminds me of a cheap beer I used to drink when I was a teenage boy, besides the hops in there. Now for the taste, well it’s good, but not great. The thing I like most is that it’s juicy and really easy to drink. You feel the hops, but not too much, medium bodied beer. Nothing extraordinary on this one, but a good one. Glad I’ve tried it. Cheers!
