3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Mostly passion fruit, apricot, resin, and citrus in the aroma. Filled my nonic imperial pint well with an inch of head. Taste is a bit spicier than the aroma indicated, but very drinkable. Well done pale ale that would sure look nice in six packs.
Solid APA. Good balance of stone fruit, citrus, tropical, hint of pine, with a good malt base and excellent palate. randy1969 (93) - Marengo, Illinois, USA - NOV 16, 2017
Bready malt, and citrus hop aroma. Cloudy golden with a two-inch white head. Tastes with a medium sweetness with tempered bitterness. Basically this is elite level pale ale stuff. Has a solid medium body but not so much to mute the hop profile. Carbonation on point Lowe1983 (1647) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - NOV 11, 2017
Pours an amber color with a white head. Mostly citrus hops on the aroma with coriander and caramel malts. Nicely blended for a pale ale. Nice citrus good up front with the caramel malts. Not a huge bitter finish and only a slight lingering flavor. superspak (6094) - Waterford, Michigan, USA - OCT 25, 2017
Got in a trade with The-Adjunct Hippie. 12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 8/7/2017. Pours fairly hazy/cloudy golden orange/amber color with a 2 finger dense and rocky off white head with amazing retention, that reduces to a large cap that lasts the whole glass. Thick soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, passion fruit, apricot, mango, melon, lemon zest, orange peel, light pepper, pine, honey, caramel, toasted bread, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of citrus/fruity/pine hops and moderate dark/bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, passion fruit, apricot, mango, melon, lemon zest, orange peel, light pepper, pine, honey, caramel, toasted bread, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Moderate pine, citrus peel, grassy, spicy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, passion fruit, apricot, mango, melon, lemon/orange peel, citrus rind, pepper, pine, honey, caramel, toasted bread, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Awesome complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/pine hops and moderate dark/bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and zero lingering hop astringency after the finish. Light-moderate increasing dryness from bitterness. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately bready/grainy/sticky, and lightly resinous/rindy balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 6%. Overall this is an awesome American pale ale. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/pine hops and moderate dark/bready malt flavors; very smooth and easy to drink with the modestly bitter/drying finish. Never overly aggressive. Really great mix of juicy, dank, and vibrancy on hops; with a nice balancing malty backbone. A really enjoyable offering, and spot on style example. 47574xeCD (1277) - Coventry, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - OCT 24, 2017
12oz bottle drunk in Cleveland Ohio. Poured clear light amber colour with white head. Nose is a hoppy pine burst. Taste is a tangy hoppy citrus pine bitter kicking beast. Quality.

A delicious pale ale. Big tropical fruit flavours and aromas. Great clean finish. Wonderful balance. LinusStick (3520) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 15, 2017
3F continues to dominate the American pale ale style with yet another masterpiece. Aroma was all hops. Grassy and earthy. Pour was a nice medium gold with a one finger off white head. Taste was a hop explosion. Grainy with huge grassy hop flavor with a nice bitter hop bite in the finish. Masterful crafting in balancing enough malt to balance the strong hop flavors (keeping it out of IPA territory). Good carbonation Ronritter (875) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - OCT 8, 2017
