This is on draft at 2 locations here in town. This is often a warm up beer and pours a red orange with a nice white head. Lots of hops and almost a sweet clover honey finish. This is a hop heads beer for sure so be prepared for a blast of hops. Once you get past the initial hop bite this beer does smooth out and become more drinkable but give it a few wash overs on the palate..Worthy of a try.

UPDATED: DEC 20, 2014 you can drink this every day, at which point, every day, you will be reminded that life is indeed good. At least if youve got a plump stock of this stuff. If not? Sorry, buddy.

UPDATED: NOV 7, 2004 Nice orangish-copper color with a strong cirtrus hop aroma. Smells like Im sniffing my hops before I add them to my homebrews. Medium body dominated by hop flavor and semi-dry, bitter finish. Drank at room temperature which really brought out the hop aroma and flavor. Its one of my go to beers when Im looking for something semi-lite and flavorful.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a Three Floyds branded imperial pint glass. Pours a jewel-like amber with a two and a half finger pillowy off-white head with great retention. Significant lacing as the head recedes. An inviting blast of grapefruit rind and pine greet the nose. Opens with bitter grapefruit and understated floral notes sweet malt joins in fairly early and adds balance, finishes with a bit of bite and citrus. Incredible mouthfeel, medium bodied, but silky smooth with just the right amount of creaminess. A standard-setter for APAs. Youll be hard pressed to find one that is better.

Bottle. Pours a bright clear reddish gold with a light head. Floral and herbal hop notes with a sweet taste and a touch of rhubarb. A flavorful and mildly bitter finish. An excellent pale ale.

GardenGabe (137) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 8, 2009
This yellow to orange pour looks and full mouth as it feels. Nose is all pine and grapefruit. A rich hoppy flavor with a hint of sweetness in the form of caramel. A satisfying beer.

TheBeerNinja (137) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JAN 29, 2006
Pours a copper color with thin tan head that needs some help getting started. Nose is nice and hoppy very floral and sweet maybe a little grassy. Flavor is predominantly bitter with some nice toasty notes thrown in there. Finish is dry, crisp and bitter. Nice nice nice!

jonnabrix (137) - Newberrytown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 6, 2006
Pours a dark amber color, and releases a fantastic, hoppy aroma. This is a citrusy, bitter ale and the floral-hop flavor puts it near the top of my list.

Brewosk (137) - Illinois, USA - JUL 23, 2007
From a bottle at the Olympic. Bold hoppy flavor, absolutely great for hop lovers. Plenty of citrus in the finish nice to have a place in town that consistently serves this one. Rating number 100 for me.

On tap DLD08. Pours a rich orange with a white head. Aroma is citrus, piney, and floral. Taste is very nice, unforgiving hop flavor mixed with some hop flavor. This is a really excellent beer that I would recommend to all.
