PLEASE READ: THIS RATING IS FOR íTHE KINDí ON DRAFT. IF YOU REVIEWED IT FOR 22.OZ BOTTLES, I SUGGEST YOU TRY IN ON DRAFT. IT IS THE SUPERIOR OPTION.
Had both the bottle and draft of The Kind. This review is for the draft. The draft pours the same orange amber haze, more a a glow and a definite murk. Nice lacing.
The thing that really stands out from the draft version is the initial. On tap, the pallete explodes with the taste of grapefruit, mango, and grass that is somwhat muted in the bottle version. The nose gives off itís fair share of hops but the citrus is so prevalent here, it almost feels like a different beer. Ends with a nice bitterness, a subtle transition into a hoopy predominately grassy, crisp finsh than the fornt end.
I didnít see it as watery. A bit on the thin side, but oily enough to get a smooth finish.
In bottles, itís a great beer. On tap, itís amazing. Better than Flower Power.

Golden pour with a white head. Aroma is piny hops. Taste is hops, more than anything else. But not in a good way. It is a little watery.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I like beers that define labels or styles (although that makes for a more difficult review to write). Three Heads The Kind IPA is a strong India Pale Ale thatís definitely not a double or imperial, and while it has components of both east and west coast IPAs (i.e. pine and citrus, respectively) it wouldnít be accurate to call it a beer of those styles. It is, however, a flavorful, very drinkable IPA and thatís what matters.
I poured a 22oz bottle into a tulip glass.
Appearance: Dark gold to orange color; extremely hazy with visible sediment speckles suspended in the body of the beer. Forms a good sized, white, frothy head which laces and retains very well.
Smell: Strong orange notes with an earthy, almost herbal, undertone with a hint of pine needles.
Taste: The bottle describes Three Heads The Kind IPA as "...like taking a walk through a pine forest and ending up at a citrus farm." I think itís actually the opposite as the beer begins with strong dry bitterness, followed by a crisp citrusy flavor (orange mostly), and finishing with rustic, tree bark-like quality with some pine flavor. The beer is 76 IBUs and it certainly shows as the hops are quite relentless here from beginning to end. There is a brief reprieve through the middle of the palate with a moment of orange juice-like refreshing taste and sensation, but then itís back to the bitterness. As it warms, a slight malty caramel sweetness begins to emerge towards the end of the palate and helps to take the end off and make for a tasty flavor.
Drinkability: At 6.8% ABV, Three Heads The Kind IPA is just a regular IPA, but has the bitterness level of something stronger. The mouthfeel is perfectly medium and noticeably crisp and goes down very smooth. Itís even refreshing at certain moments, but not a beer I would consider refreshing per se. A great beer to have with a meal or by itself, but nothing really amazing as far as taste factor.

Very nice hoppy brew. Pours a clear golden hue. Hops aroma fills the room. Not well balanced at all. Just hops, everywhere. Love the name also.
