Bottle pured a hazy dark copper with a minimal amber head. Aromas of perfume, pine, hint of citrus and light carmel. Palate was light bodied and slightly resiny. Flavors of carmel, pine, earthiness, floral and a hint of grapefruit with a lingering lightly bitter finish.

DSG (14685) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - NOV 28, 2008
(10/14/08) Draught at the brewpub in Munster. Clear amber color. Aroma of citrus hops with flowers and some malt in the background. Sweetish flavor, slightly caramelly with light biscuit hints. Continues hoppy and bitter with some grapefruit. Rounded mouthfeel. Good stuff.

Scopey (14523) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 1, 2011
Bottle at Brewdog Bar, Aberdeen. It pours mahogany with a thin off-white head and low-moderate carbonation. The nose is wood, polish, resin, peach and pineapple. The taste is varnish, resin, grapefruit, lemon, lime, orange peel, watermelon, wood and some caramel with a moderate bitter finish. I found it a bit too thin and a bit rough around the edges. I am left feeling a little bit disappointed...

Bottle. Pours a dark amber with off white head leaving spotty lacing. The aroma is floral hop and citrus. Medium mouthfeel with sweet hop and nice lingering bitter finish. Easy to drink an impressive American pale ale from Three Floyds.

UPDATED: OCT 7, 2003 (bottle - 10/7/03) Hazy copper body topped by small beige head. Aroma is medium sweet, grapefruit. Taste is grapefruit, medium sweet, fairly intense bitterness. Still, the sweetness lends decent balance to the hops. Medium body. (draft - 7/2/03) Clear brown body with small off-white head. Aroma is moderately sweet hoppy. Taste is hoppy (pine/grapefruit) -- going for broke and taking no prisoners. Medium body. (7/4/7/3/14)

Lubiere (13796) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 6, 2004
Hazy brown ale with a thin head. Resinous hops and citrus flatters the nose. The taste is even more intense, with hops which coats the mouth, and with creamy texture, this beer is an excellent Pale ale. Goes well with a gruyere.
