2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
I was sort of confused as to why 3 Floyds would make a style that calls for very little hops. They seem to revel in the plant. Pours a nice rich brown, with a pleasing khaki head. Aroma is way too hoppy. You can smell the hops, for starters. Malts smell right, but are overwhelmed by the floral hoppiness. Flavor is also off. Way, way too much hops. Mild roastiness and some bittersweet bready flavors. It irritates me that these guys just overhop everything, like it's a source of pride. Carbonation is way too high, hops are mellow for 3 Floyds, but still way too high for this style. They should have called it an american brown ale, because that's what it is.
From Jul 2008
I got this in a trade with TATTORSO. Thanks Jeff!
It pours a hazy orange gold with a 1 finger head of foam.
The smell is a nice mix of caramel malt and bready malt sweetness and some piney hops. Good nose.
The taste is yummy. Good bready malt up front with a goodly amount of hops both citrus and pine but not too much as I think it's pretty nicely balanced.
More sips in and I'm finding this very drinkable and quite tasty. The mouthfeel is a little thin but not too thin, and the carbonation, I think, is on the light side. Nice piney/citric finish that leaves a pleasing aftertaste. Quite good stuff and like I said, easy drinking and the head retention and lacing were more than adequate. Very nice brew overall and 1 that I'll enjoy again because I have 2 more bottles, thanks to Jeff. ;^) DandyWolfFloyd (1253) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 8, 2015

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 (119) - 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.

This one is a good balanced milf. Tasty warm lite hop and citrus. Enjoyable ale by the Brewers of three floyds. tonypreto (130) - Akron, Ohio, USA - DEC 9, 2014
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.
