COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Beer #3 in the endless series of limited edition artist and artisan beers. Gigantic and Three Floyds unleash this true weapon of mass distraction. Citrus and tropical hoppyness lead to fill malt flavour from proper English malt, kilned over Welsh coal. Brewed for those of us that live and die in the Timbers Army and Section 8.

Bottle. Orange pour, wisp of a head. Orange marmalade heavy aroma, English hops, touch of cigarette, big orange driven citrus notes, fruit heavy. Decent bitterness. Good EPA

On tap at Brewer’s Republic. Pours a slightly hazy, light orange color, with a medium, frothy, beige head that leaves some good lacing. Nice hop aromatics of citrus and pine, with notes of orange peels, nutmeg, hay, and some light earth. Not too sweet, with a smooth bitterness. Medium body, with a crisp, astringent, and hard palate. This is a nicely done pale ale. Good, subtle malt character, and lovely hop aromatics.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a softly hazed gold with a medium sized white head. Soft citrus on the nose, a bit of musk, melon, toast. Medium bodied, soft citrus, a bit of fruit, citrus. Gentle citrus into the finish, soft and easy, light grapefruit, toast, a bit of easy bitterness. Lovely.

malrubius (2898) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - JUL 7, 2017
Bottle from Brewfest Beverage. Copper with lasting small head and a little lace. Spicy mild woody and fruity aroma. Medium sweet peachy honey toasted caramel with medium spicy herbal woody fruity hop. Medium body medium carbo. Balanced but I am not enjoy the herbal hints or the toasted malts very much in this one.

Kind of an all-around okay pale, surprisingly tame considering its pedigree. English malts offer up their usual fruits and nuts, some apple, some black tea undertones, offset by a lemon-orange hop middle in dire need of some oomph. Estery as all hell, and the finish grows sweet, a mild floral hoppiness giving way to bready Brit ale notes. Appearance is orange-gold with a meager head and minuscule lacing, and the watery texture only adds to the overall English meh-ness. Expected more.

Three Floyds is always a great brewery so you've gotta get it when you can. Slightly sour, wheat, interesting aftertaste -

Draft pour pint at Malt and Vine. Nice to see this Collab still going strong after all the years. Didn’t even know of it before today. And I call myself a beer nerd.. Psh. Glad it’s here, always a pleasure to try something unique like this. An unexpected, yet appropriate collaboration. Golden orange pour with a thick foam head. Balanced aroma of earthy malt and hops. Earthy constant, smooth, with a below but constant bitterness. Drinks easy. Bitter, but not too bitter that it takes away from the overall drinking pleasure. Solid offering here.

Ratman197 (14838) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JUN 16, 2017
On tap at Hops and Pie poured a clear golden amber with a small lasting ivory head. Aromas of straw, earthiness and a hint of citrus. Palate was light bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of bread, earthiness and light fruitiness with a smooth dry finish.
