Draft at the source. Hazy amber color, small white head, solid lacing. Aroma of citrus and baking white bread. Taste is similar. Decent. Hammy78 (973) - Dundas, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 7, 2012
On draft at the Three Floyds brewpub. Pour is a copper colour with a small white head and some cascading lacing. Smell is faintly of sweet hop. Taste is bitter with a alcohol bite. nuplastikk (6207) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 26, 2011
Imperial pint at FFF. Deep amber-brown, looks filtered. Foamy beige head. Very nice aroma, this is my ultimate amber ale (?). Crisp, earthy hop tones excellently complementing and balancing he fruity amber malt. Dry and herbal but smooth malt tones too. Soapy, in the best possible way. Unique hoppy nuances. A completely sessionable Amber-APA hoppy red thing. holdenn (2116) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 15, 2011
UPDATED: JAN 7, 2012 On tap at the pub on November 28, 2010. Copper pour with a beige head. Musty slightly cat pissy hops with caramelly malts. Pale malt flavors thin with a nice grassy piney finish. Lots of pine in the finish. This would be easy to drink a few of these. 7/4/8/4/16
It lacks that punch that I remember. The nose is light and nearly nonexistent. Bitter citrus flavors juicy but not super fresh. A little dull. 7/4/7/4/14 fear025 (213) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - MAR 1, 2011
On tap at the Three Floyds brewpub.
Aroma:Very hoppy, grapefruit and orange aromas.
Appearance:Reddish-amber in color. Very little head.
Taste:Grapefruit, pineapple, apricot, peach. These flavors peak in the foretaste, and slowly dissipate in the aftertaste without turning bad.
Palate:Light to medium body with good carbonation. There’s a little astringency in the back of my throat from the hops.
Overall:This beer is quite hoppy and delicious. The new zealand hops (most likely citra) has made this quite an amazing beer that really pops.

Draft at fountainhead. Pours a very attractive bronze with an off-white head. Nose is super fresh and fruity hops. Nice guava and pineapple notes. Some lemon present as well. On taste, a very restrained and pleasant bitterness. Tons of tropical fruit and a nice malt backbone. Vintage Three Floyds. Fantastic IPA. hombrepalo (1971) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 6, 2010
On tap at Fountainhead. Poured ruby red with nice lacings. Smells so fresh. Nice amount of hops and malt that balance eachother out well. A bit of grains and spice that reminds me of Alpha King a little bit, but not so up front. Taste just goes back and forth between a balanced bitter and smooth malt. On of the best Amber ales I’ve encountered. wedgie9 (2702) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 5, 2010
Tasted on draft at Fountainhead. Pours clear bright amber with a thick white head that leaves very smooth lace. The nose is pine and citrus hops, very dank, with a decent amount of caramel malt. The flavor is very smooth with this unique hop at the forefront of the flavor with pine resin, citrus, medium bitterness, and the same dank flavor that I got on the nose. The malt is present, but it is nothing more than a vehicle to display these hops to perfection. The body is medium with a sticky texture, average carbonation, and a long bitter pine finish. misterbeer (313) - greenwood, Indiana, USA - NOV 29, 2010
on tap at the newly opened tomlinson tap room -amber pour -off white head .aroma and taste of fruit ,really hoppy for an amber with a nice balanced finish bhiner41 (189) - Darien, Illinois, USA - NOV 25, 2010
Very malty taste up front, almost like maple syrup, slightly sweet. Hoppy finish with little aftertaste. No burn. Kind of yeast like. Aroma is hoppy but not over powering. This is a beer you could drink all night and not feel any over powering after tastes.
