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.

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. railcat1 (702) - Kissimmee, Florida, USA - JAN 8, 2012
On tap at FFF ,this was a very drinkable beer with some citrus and hops in it,overall this was more like a good summer beer that you can drink all the time.CHEERS! drewbeerme (3920) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 21, 2012
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.

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. burg326 (5482) - Florida, USA - AUG 5, 2012
On draft at 3 Floyds, pours a dark golden color, aromas of citrus, and hops. Flavors are the same, light bitterness at the end, not the best beer here but still decent and refreshing. RAYBOY01 (2011) - 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.

Draft. Poured a hazy copper color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate earthy hop and small malt aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. I would recommend this to a freind.

Enjoyed on tap at the source. Served in a nonic pint.
A: Pours a clear golden amber color with a two finger height of pure white head forming on the pour. The head has some nice retention and it recedes slowly down the glass leaving some sticky lace behind.
S: Sweet berry with honeydew melon. Light biscuity malts in the periphery with a kiss of citrus fruits.
T: Dry biscuit malt. Green, fruity hops with some nice citrus. I’m getting a sweet, yeasty note in there as well which is interesting.
M: Light bodied with some medium to medium high carbonation. The finish is clean, and slighty drying.
O: I enjoyed this, but this was the last beer of my FFF stop and I think my palate might have been a little wrecked after two other beers and a BBQ pulled pork. I’m definitely going to revist the next time I go. If my thoughts are any different I’ll be sure to update my review.
