12 ounce bottle into pint glass; no bottle dating, but was purchased recently. Pours a very hazy golden amber color with a nice 2 finger fluffy white head with excellent retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice spotty foamy lacing clings to the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation as well. Aromas of big orange zest, grapefruit, pineapple, bread, floral, light pine, grass, and light citrus rind. Damn nice aromas with nice hop complexity and balance. Taste of orange zest, pine, grapefruit, caramel, bread, floral, grass, and light citrus rind. Good amount of grassy citrus bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus zest, pine, caramel, bread, grass, floral, and citrus rind on the finish for a good bit. Fantastic hop flavor complexity and balance; with a solid malt backbone; and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a lightly creamy, sticky, and crisp mouthfeel that is very nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with hardly any warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a highly excellent pale ale! Great hop flavor balance and complexity; and extremely smooth to drink as expected. A highly enjoyable offering.

Look - Dark orange. Weak pour lead to thin, off white head. Lacing. See through as it warms.
Smell - Light, hoppy dank smell. Earthy. Light citrus.
Taste - Very good for a lighter beer. Dank grapefruit. Bread. Earth. Bitter on finish.
Feel - No carb bomb. Doesn’t stick to tongue. Smooth.
Overall - I hear they stopped bottling this for Yum Yum? Bring it back! Very good for abv. mysland (180) - GERMANY - FEB 1, 2015

Tasted from draft. Pours a clear Amber with off white head. Big time hop aroma that is citrus fruit and pine. Taste is surprisingly not that bitter as expected from the aroma. Mild to moderate bitterness with moderate sweetness. Some toffee and bready flavors with a citrusy and pine hop flavors to balance. Very sessionable. As usual a great beer by Three Floyds.

12 oz bottle poured into pint glass. Pours a hazy burnt orange amber with a small off white head that dissipates swiftly. Very hoppy and citrusy aroma and flavor. Great mouthfeel with mild carbonation. Great beer. Homer321 (5190) - Melboring, Florida, USA - DEC 3, 2014
