Slightly hazy amber color, small off-white head. Bready, nice citric hoppy aroma. Light citrusy-grassy flavor. Pale malts are there. Hoppy aftertaste. jtclockwork (17264) - , New Jersey, USA - MAY 9, 2010
One of the best pales I’ve had. Distinct citrus flavor. Very floral and delicious. Rated 2/6/03 yngwie (17234) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 18, 2009
Bottle, 12oz. It pours a creamy, fingerthic, beige head over a well-carbonated, slightly hazy orange-golden body. Citrusy, resiny nose with a touch of tropical fruits. Lovely sugary, caramel-like maltyness to give it balance. Full-bodied, creamy mouthfeel with a delicious bitterness. There’s sugary, caramel-like, almost beef-stock like malty flavors to cope with the citrusy, resiny flavors from the hops. Lasting finish with good bitterness. A lovely beer, and maybe it deserves a higher rating from me, but I find it a bit on the sweet side for a pale ale. (090718)

Bottle @ Sorbon, Bromma July 30 2011. Red, amber colored beer with a slightly off-white head. Smell sweet, fruit, hops and grapefruit. Really nice taste of hops, fruits and a little sweetness with a bitter finish. Very balanced. Soft carbonation and medium to full body. brokensail (16645) - Dublin, California, USA - FEB 21, 2010
A: A 12 oz bottle poured into my Firestone Walker pint glass. The beer is a hazy, amber color with little to no head.
S: A great citrus (grapefruit and orange) aroma fills the nose and a mild pine is present as well. There is also a bit of sweet, caramel malt smell coming through.
T: Exceptional flavor for a pale ale! Wonderful bitterness up front and on the finish. There is also quite a bit of citrus in there, but not much in the way of the malt.
M: A fairly light beer on the tongue, but certainly not a bad thing. Good carbonation and a bit of a lingering bitterness.
D: Pale ales are known for their high level of drinkability, and this one is no exception. A very nice beer by Three Floyds. Dedollewaitor (16383) - Odense, DENMARK - JUN 15, 2009
Bottle @ Olbutikken, Copenhagen. Pours amber with a creamy white foam and lacings. Nose is hoppy and sweet malty. Lots of peach, citrus and caramel. Full and smooth body. Dry hoppy end. Good! MiP (15973) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - SEP 5, 2009
Bottle. Good caramelly hop aroma. Cloudy red amber colour. Very small off-white head. Good bitterness. Not so sweet, but sweet enough. Grassy hop note, quite caramelly and nice. A bit dry for my tastes, but good. bhensonb (15753) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 10, 2009
Bottle from Archer Liquors. Copper color with a large beige head that collapsed with a bit of lace. Huge citrus/cat pee aroma. Can’t even smell malt. Medium body with creamy carbonation. Flavor is mildly citric hop over some light malt. But that doesn’t mean it’s not hoppy. There’s a lot of florality. I think this is one of those fresh hop beers, and I think this bottle must be rather fresh. Really hops the mouth. Great mouthfeel.
