On tap at FFF brewpub with Remus. Clear orange, small white head. Over powering pine and grain. Pine, sweet, cherry, very nice taste. Overall the beer is what three floyds does best, hopped up beers.

On tap at FFF, and served in a pint glass. This pale ale poured a hazy golden color with a minimal off-white head that faded quickly. The aroma was made up of citrus hops, including orange, grapefruit and lemon, and also a hint of sweet malts. The flavor was mostly bitter, followed by a sweet mandarin orange taste and a bit of bittersweet grapefruit. The mouthfeel was medium-bodied with a slight bit of carbonation. I greatly prefered this one over the Remus.

Tap at FFF: Clean golden hue with a solid frothy head and very good lace. The aroma has notes of grapefruit, apple, slight pine and grassy hops, bready malts and earthy yeast esters. The taste starts with a nice moderate hop bite with citric tones. The finish is dry, biscuity, and peppery. The mouth feel is lively and crisp, quite refreshing and easy to drink. This is really good and a pleasant surprise, get ya some. (Unlike Cornfield, I preferred Romulus over Remus)

tap at the brewery.....aroma: mild citrus hop nose and somewhat peachy....appearance: looked very much like an apple-cider with a thin white head.....taste: mild,subdued hops with little bitterness. not a tremendous amount of flavor but went down smooth easily.

Didn’t care much for this one. It has a golden/brass body with a good-lacing, fizzy white head... the ubiquitious lager look, as cheapdark might comment. The aroma was earthy, not really bitter, but earthy and had some leafy herbs tossed in. I could almost taste the malt. Mostly I tasted a soily bitterness. Interesting experiment, but "brother" Remus: Bravo is a much better drink.

A pale ale with a malty finish and a nice hop touch to it.This was true to FFF style and very enjoyable.CHEERS to Nick and guys for trying two types of pale ales with a twist to them.
