Draft at DLD(11) - Pours amber with strong hop notes that drive into a bitter grapefruit and light vegetbale like spice palate. The finish gives the bitter hop hints with a decent balance of unerlying malt to allow the hop from going to crazy. arminjewell (9728) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAY 1, 2011
On tap DLD’11. Pours hazy orange/amber with nice white head, aroma is overpowering orange and grapefruit, with a touch of vegetal notes from the hops. Taste is good with notes of bitter grapefruit, sweet orange, some slight lemon, and a vegetal note finishing slightly bitter but clean. Wish it came without the vegetal, but overall a delicious beer and good showcase of the hop. AndyReynolds (1085) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 1, 2011
Draft at brewpub. Aroma is very hoppy with a nice malt backbone. Notes of grapefruit, mango, citrus, and some grassiness. Palate is where it should be. Taste is bitter and hoppy. Pretty damn good. andyhwcinc (1886) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 30, 2011
Enjoyed on tap at Dark Lord Day at 3 Floyd’s in Munster, IN. Appearance a vibrant orange haze with a thin white head. Aroma citrusy hops with rich malts, leans heavy on the hop side. Taste rather bitter, rich in hops, nice flavors, I’m not sure if this is supposed to be an ipa but it sure tastes like it. I wrote this review while at DLD and now that I’m at home I can see it’s an APA. Definitely a hoppy APA, but I wouldn’t expect anything else from 3 Floyds. Pretty good stuff. sherm1016 (1274) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 30, 2011

On cask at the Real Ale festival at PP Carlsbad. It pours orange with a fluffy white head. The aroma is grassy with marijuana and some grapefruit. The flavor is full with marijuana, tropical fruit, and a touch of toffee sweetness. It finishes rather earthy bitter. One of the best beers of the day. maneliquor (3514) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 29, 2011
UPDATED: SEP 10, 2013 The special tapping of the night at Fountainhead. Pours a very light gold with a fluffy white head. For a single hop brew, the nose is fantastic. Lots of hops with huge citrus coming through. Not too over the top in bitterness. Has a caramel malt backing that goes well with the Citra hops. Good beer patrick767 (4474) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - APR 27, 2011
tap at Trion - Pours copper and has a hop aroma that to me, surprisingly enough seeing that this brew is single hopped with Citra, smells strongly of pine. It’s moderately bitter with a slightly toasted caramel backing and lots of lingering bitterness to go with the ample pine flavors. Very good. Keil (171) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 21, 2011
Pours a light gold color. Smells like pineapple, mango, candy. Incredibly easy to drink. Filled with tons of good hop flavor. Hops really take over in this one but the malt character is right where it needs to be. Before I knew it, I had 4. Can’t wait for this to be in bottles. Delicious.

On tap at the brewpub. Served in imperial pint glass.
Pours a nice orange color with a two-finger head. Quite bubbly at first and eventually falls down into a light cap. Slight lacing on the edges of the glass. The nose is nice with a bit of citrus as well as the usual tropical suspects that come with a Citra brew.
The flavor really takes off on what was present in the nose. There is quite. Bit of tropical fruit, some orange, and then quite a bit of nice bitterness. Really nice how the flavor and bitterness interact here. Feel is bitter.and a bit light with really nice cabontion. Thrilled that this was still here and am very glad I got to try it. Will be bringing a growler back for the DC folk to enjoy.
