Pours a transparent dark honey, nice white head leaves great lacing. Aroma is tropical hop, pineapple, grapefruit, fleshy fruit, bright citrus and hop resin. Taste follows the tropical fruit in the nose, more citrus, very tasty. High carbonation, medium body. Awesome.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours an amber orange with a white head and tropical aroma of citrus, pine, and hops. Taste is well balanced, of fresh hops, grapefruit, citrus, pine and malt with a nice, clean, bitter finish. Great tasting, drinkable brew and a great bottle and name to go along with it.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours hazy golden orange with a wispy head. Nose is all citrus including grapefruit, peaches, and orange and arguably one of the best noses for an APA. Taste is nothing but flavor, citrus bursting through with peaches, mangoes and grapefruit. Finish is sweet and somewhat long and delicious. Arguably one of the best American Pale Ales made. Quaff Score 9 /. 10

Good off white head, (almost) clear and dark gold to light amber. Strong aroma of pine and grapefruit. Soft sweet (malts?), but mostly hopbitter with pine and grapefruit again. Good body for 6,2 %. Would like to have some more of this.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: APR 20, 2012 12oz bottle. Pours golden orange with a quickly dissipating white head. Aroma is of hops, pine, citrus, and floral notes, Definitely smells hoppy and tasty. Taste starts with a strong, but not overpowering hop taste. More sweet and juicy than bitter hops. There is also a lot of pine and citrus. Slight floral notes. The malt is buried underneath the hops flavor. Way too easty to drink. Definitely something I could drink on the regular.

Hazy, tan. Chewyish nose with woody, citrusy notes. Fruity, and bright up front, with herbal notes as well. The malts are clean and balanced. Earthy, bright, tasty APA.

A favorite of mine from Three Floyds and lets be honest, the art is killer. A hoppy beer with balanced overall flavor and a cloudy color that could trick one into thinking it may even leave a residue, a dust on the tongue.
