Draft. Medium white head, crystal clear light amber body. Aroma is medium sweet, grapefruit, some bread, light spicy. Taste is medium sweet, bread, grapefruit, light spicy. Light-medium body, quite drinkable. Not particularly bitter, but quite flavorful and quaffable.

Tap at FFF. Filtered orange-tan. Big steady off-white head. Mellow malt with a touch of citrus in the aroma. Earthy, hoppy, well done. Smooth and toasty dry hop tones, reminds me of NZ hops. Straightforward but subtle, expert stuff. Easy and great.

On tap at the brewpub and also had a few pours at the anniversary party... Pours a mostly transparent cidery orange brown hue and topped with a medium frothy white head... Crispy bready malt with a helpful dose of juicy tangerine citrus sweetness. Nice solid hop forward aroma.. Flavors are bready crackery malt base and a mild citrusy hop bent. Pronounced grassy bitteness through the middle and well on through the finish. Prickly lively carbonation and mouthfeel. Nice and easily drinkable though I’d choose others over this.

HonkeyBra (4044) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - DEC 10, 2011
On tap at the Three Floyds Brewpub. Hazed golden pour with a big white head. Aroma of citrus, pine, hops, some tangerine and orange. Some notes of gumballs, fresh cut grass, and flowers. Some bread and crackery malt behind the hop forward aroma. Flavor is strongly hoppy and bitter with lots of tangerine and candy hop notes. Grassy, herbal citrus hop notes. Lovely, actually. Nice bright carbonation. Very smooth. Another great chapter in a history of great pale ales from Three Floyds.

Had a few pours of this at the anniversary party. pours a somewhat hazed orange with a foamy white head. Aroma has some nice citrus tropical fruits and grass. However the flavor wasn’t as hop forward, more of a bready malt base and citrus bite some floral and grassiness finishes. This would be a solid APA for anyone else but is subpar for FFF standards of great hoppy pales.

XmnwildX12 (2079) - Farmington, Minnesota, USA - JUL 6, 2012
Had a very different hop profile, had some roasted grain notes as well. Taste was similar with a sweet caramel like and nut flavors. Very refreshing but quite a different brew.

Strykzone (7797) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUL 22, 2012
Pint at the brewpub. Clear copper hue with a one inch white foam. I smell citrus in the hops but they are more subtle in the flavor. Yeast is tasted here more than other APAs and that is bread. Grass is tasted. The hops bring a different kind of spice and it is one that I cannot pin down. Not quite. brown sugar, not quote roasted. Of course, it is Three Floyds so the unexpected is expected. Interesting beer here. Tasty, too.

ESBob (379) - Indiana, USA - NOV 25, 2012
On Tap. Pours a clear gold with hints of amber, only a slight head. Aroma is a crisp clean, lemony zest. Taste is light citrus with nice hop character. Smooth finish.

RAYBOY01 (2010) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 13, 2012
Deep golden pour, white fluffy lingering head. Nose is very prominent citrus, pine, grapefruit, tangerine. Flavors are all hop forward...citrus and pine. Some decent caramel malt sweetness with some moderate bready notes. Makes a really good summer refresher after cutting the grass. Quite well done.
