KajII (801) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - SEP 18, 2012
Bottle. The pour was a clear copper brown with an average (1-2 finger) beige fluffy head that had great retention and possessed really good sheets of streaky lacing. The aroma was of a sweet biscuit malt, spruce and cascade hops and a sweet doughy yeast with notes of citrus (orange), caramel and a pronounced dark fruit (plum) presence. The taste was lightly sweet and malty with a note of caramel and a strong fruity presence in the beginning, and then became somewhat hoppy with a nice creamy bitter citrus peel ending. The flavor lasted an average duration following the swallow with a wonderful sweet hoppiness left lying on the taste buds. Mouthfeel was a bit beyond light in body with a creamy dry texture and a medium carbonation. Overall this was a very well balanced Pale Ale, with just the right amount of bitterness to go along with the mild fruity sweetness...

Zapach biszkoptowo-karmelowy, herbaciany, lekko przyprawowy, nawet nieco kwiatowy, przyjemny i zbalansowany, ale nie jest to intensywna chmielowa bomba, która powala soczystością i intensywnością. Jest grzecznie. Smak lekko karmelowy i kwiatowy, goryczka w posmaku, przez chwilę zalega, średnia do wysokiej jak na APA. Piwo ma kolor podchodzący pod bladą czerwień, nie jest zbyt mętne. Piana ładna, lacing, utrzymuje się. Wysycenie w sam raz. za niskie nie jest. Solidny klasyk, ale bez fajerwerków.

UPDATED: OCT 19, 2017 Aromas of caramel, bready malt and floral hops. An amber color in a slightly hazy liquid. with an off-white head. The taste is glorious: a solid base of caramel malt and some subtle sweet fruit. Feels medium bodied, creamy texture with moderate, pleasant carbonation. Overall a real nice balanced pale ale.

12oz bottle picked up at the brewery shared by Highendtully. Color is copper/amber with a good quality off white head. Nose is a combination of pine and bready characteristics including a slight brown butter element. Taste starts out with heavy citrus (tangerine, pineapple) before getting out of the way of the malts. Finish is a crazy amount of caramel (like a creme brulee dessert feel) that lingers well into the night. Finish also seems to incorporate an over-ripened fruit quality. Very good balance. Hard to find fault with this one.

Bottle from Binny's, Lincoln Park. It's how to do an APA: gorgeous deep orange colour and chewy, almost tangerine-like citrus comes though. Fantastic.

On tap, Kuma’s Too. Pretty exciting to finally get hold of one of these legendary Three Floyds beers! This was deep amber almost copper in colour, much more caramel malt and resulting sweetness than I expected. White foam, medium carbonation. Very hop plant hoppiness, fresh. More than any beer I’ve ever had it tasted like you were sucking on the hops, or maybe their juices, before they go into the kettle. Grapefruit, citrus, a bit of pine, but also quite...hoppy. Quite bitter. Clearly a great brewing effort to get that intensity and faithfulness of flavour, but was it actually the nicest or most drinkable pale I’ve had? Probably not.

Appearance is a deep amber and thick white head. Aroma is a little sweet. Taste is creamy with a nice balance of medium bitter hops and some sweeter malt.
