3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: DEC 17, 2004 Draft, at the brewery. Yes, definitely the "starter" beer to introduce a virgin to the 3F family. Hoppiness is not as pronounced as with other 3F beers, but still very much present. Simple malty taste keeps this beer well within the "Mild" style, but still manages to pack the 3F twist.
2004 re-rate: I’m pouring a bottle just fresh from the brewery, and my, what a difference. Big green citrusy hop is everywhere on this! I had the same experience with a fresh Gumballhead. Don’t know how long it stays like this in the bottle (the new labels have no date notches), but there’s a great way to demonstrate the difference freshness makes.

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 (141) - 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 (5076) - Melboring, Florida, USA - DEC 3, 2014
