COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Voraciously hoppy and not overly bitter. The Kind brings enormous aroma and maximum flavor. Itís like taking a walk through a pine forest and ending up at a citrus farm. This beer brings joy to the world, one sip at a time.

Lemon zest nose. Clear golden, thin head. Lemon zest flavor, which turns to celery and grass. Decent, but seems a little vegetal and could use a greater malt presence.

PhillyCraft (2847) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 12, 2013
Tap at Barcade, this one was a pleasant surprise after trying too kind and hating it. Notes were a little cheesy, lots of pine, and funky hops. Nice head and good lacing. A little grapey in the finish. Pretty solid ipa.

Drake (7940) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - FEB 11, 2013
Draft at Beer Run. Pours a clear amber color with a thin frothy off-white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of floral, herbal, resin hops and caramel malts. The taste is strong herbal hops, toasted malts and caramel. Medium bodied.

Foxbush (1215) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - FEB 3, 2013
22 oz bomber The bomber poured a very clear golden color with a white head. The ale is an attractive beverage to drink with lacing down the glass. The aroma is softly hoppy with a bit of light citrus and a touch of pine. The aroma also has a bit of light sweet fruitiness from the hops. Fairly muted hop flavor but you do get some pine. The medium body ale had average carbonation. The finish was muted with only a hint of bitterness.

pineypower (2402) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - FEB 3, 2013
Pours out a well carbonated clear orange hued amber with a somewhat thick off white head. Aroma is of oily hops, citrus, light pineapple, grapefruit and light pine with a touch of bready malt. Taste is pine and citrus hops, some odd rotted fruit, light honey, bread crust acidic bitterness and a slight vegetal note.

Hazy copper color cream colored head. Nose is of citrus and floral. Mouthfeel is medium with oily consistency. Hop bitterness lingers with strong floral notes, more so than citrus. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

superspak (2203) - Michigan, USA - JAN 5, 2013
22 ounce bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours lightly cloudy golden amber color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense off white head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings to the glass. Aromas of orange zest, tangerine, grapefruit, citrus rind, floral, grass, pine, bread, and light herbal. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of hop notes. Taste of orange zest, grapefruit, pine, floral, citrus rind, grass, bread, and herbal earthiness. Good amount of grassy pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus, citrus rind, pine, floral, grass, bread, and herbal on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance of hop flavors with decent complexity; good malt/hop balance; and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a lightly creamy and fairly sticky mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a very good IPA. Nice balance of hop flavors with good complexity; and very smooth to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

Location: 22 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 12/23/12, My Rating #75 of 12/12, I wouldnít have gotten here without the Mayans being wrong, but then again, what did those guys know, they certainly didnít correctly predict the end of the Mayans...

Aroma: The nose is sweet and fruity, orange and grapefruit mostly, with some floral notes too
Appearance: Pours a slightly hazed orange color with a rocky white head and some light lace spots
Flavor: The taste is lightly sweet up-front, mostly citrusy, with a mid-bitter citrus and floral hop finish
Palate: Medium bodied, it has a creamy, lightly sticky feel, a soft carbonation, and a mid-dry finish
Overall Impression: Drinking this one as the Redskins almost give me a heart attack with a tight win over the Eagles, but a win is a win, so Iíll take it. From a distribution perspective, this is first time Iíve seen Three Heads at Buy Rite (or anywhere in NJ). As for the beer itself, this is one is a quite solid, citrus-forward IPA. Maybe one could make the argument that it leans a touch too sweet for the style, but I really found that it worked well.
