Sour grainy taste with an aftertaste that never stops. Normal ale appearance with better than average head.

My first three floyds beer. I smelled it as soon as I popped the cap. Hops much? Pours with a good sized, white, rocky (nigh continental) head. Color is beautifully copper/orange, and absolutely crystal clear. Beautiful. Im going to sit here and smell this for a while. Ooh ya. OK, lets taste it. Pleasently sweet on the tip of the tongue, with an affirmative hop bitterness that flows down the tongue. Hop taste is wonderful. Finishes clean and dry with a pleasently bitter hop aftertaste. Mouthfeel is lighter than I expected. What a wonderful beer. I wish I could get more of this, but I guess Ill have to make do with the three I have.

Nexxus (261) - Apple Valley, Minnesota, USA - APR 23, 2004
UPDATED: MAY 24, 2004 Clear deep reddish amber with a medium frothy off white head. Huge hoppy aroma of resin, grapefruit, orange peel, pine, caramel and apricot. Medium watery body with a moderate amount of carbonation. Flavor of caramel, pine, orange peel, and grapefruit, with hints of toasted bread and alcohol. A little disappointing, given the high score here. A very good beer regardless.

Thank you to atpayne for this one, which I am honoring by making it #500. Pours dark straw/amber with a super head and lacing. Great dark aroma of hops, fruit, citrus, and scotch. Tastes very hoppy, with some citrus, honey, scotch, cognac, and malt at the finish. Extremely complex, but not super heavy. Finishes very smooth, crisp, clean, hoppy, and complex, with subtle scotch, cognac, honey, citrus, and white grapes. Like some of my other high ratings, this one doesn't knock me out in any particular category, (aroma and appearance are awesome, though) it is the sum of the parts that make this one a kick ass brew. As a side note, the alcohol may be the best hidden of any beer I've ever had. I could literally drink these all night (at least until I passed out). Extraordinary beer. Thanks again to atpayne.

bdmast (10) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - APR 21, 2004
Very hoppy, similar to an IPA (which I've quickly tired of) due to bitterness. Complex aroma, great amber color. Just the right amount of carbonation. Very satisfying overall, but a little too bitter.

bigbish (697) - California, USA - APR 18, 2004
A great beer from a great brewery. I nice amber color, with a head that displays some staying power. A slightly sweet hoppy aroma with an explosive flavor of malt with an extra helping of hops. One of my favorites

I found the taste a bit of a letdown. Something reminiscent of a fruit and ginger ale punch. Color, aroma, and appearance (if served at a proper temperature) are all very good.

civforprez (229) - Galesburg, Illinois, USA - APR 14, 2004
Very strong aroma of hops and flavor of hops. Although, I detect a faint similarity between this aroma and that of old martini olives. There is a serious bitterness to this beer. An excellent American Pale Ale

Hoppy-citrus aroma comes from this copper colored brew. Great taste...sweet malt nose with a huge kick of hops for a smooth finish. Very nice Pale Ale.
