Orange with good, creamy, white head / Fresh, subdued, nose of citrus and cut pine / Medium body, a little watery, mellow but fresh hops with good balance and fresh finish / Flavors of orange zest, pineapple, and fresh cut pine / Fresh hop juice with low bitterness. pellegjr (396) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 7, 2011
Tap @ 3F, cloudy honey w/ heavy lacing, aroma is bursting with Citra, huge tropical fruits and citrus, flavor is citrus peel and and tropical fruits throughout, very smooth and drinkable, one of the best examples of the style I’ve had LtDan (1808) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - MAY 4, 2011
Appearance: Pours a vibrant dark orange with no head.tkrjukoff (4335) - SWEDEN - MAY 4, 2011
Aroma: Dank bud, mango, apricot, tangerine.
Taste: Citrus out the wing wang. Punctuated bitterness, slightly sweet malt. Like most beautiful Citra beers I’ve tried, your tongue is looking for bitterness that just isn’t there, and it makes the beer fall off in the finish.
Mouthfeel: Thin with moderate carbonation. This would probably be remarkable on cask.
Overall: Even though I thought it could be a bit more bitter, to balance out that amazing dose of citrus, I still finished it loving it.
Apr 30 @ DLD, courtesy of pantanap. Pours slightly clowdy golden with a good head leaving nice lacing. Aroma is so good; piny, citric, cat bin, malty and fruity. Flavor follows the aroma with pungeant and sweet caramel tones, mmm so good. Finish is great hoppy bitter tart. DrnkMcDermott (3215) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - MAY 3, 2011
Draft at DLD. A lot of what I thought were Amarillo hops, but I see from the description it’s one of the new catbox smelling hops. Which I like. Very cloudy color in my plastic cup, with a short head of foam. Taste is a little more malt forward than the usual hoppy 3F beer. But still another in a long line of very good, very hoppy 3 Floyds beers.

On tap at Dark Lord Day. Thanks for the share. Very citrusy in the aroma and flavour. Fantastic but not overly complex which works for this beer. Would like more of this stuff. beerchugger (717) - North Canton, Ohio, USA - MAY 2, 2011
This stuff was fantastic! Poured a nice hazy golden color with a bright white head. Nice strong citrus hop aroma giving plenty of grapefruit and pine. Really surprised that this is an APA and not an IPA. The flavor is really bright offering hops and a strong caramel backbone. This is just a marvelous beer! I’d love to grab a sixer of this stuff!

Draft at DLD, pours a nice golden yellow, tastes very hoppy, close to an IPA I would say but very drinkable, nice citrus to this one and a good bitterness. Would definitely like some more of this one. Very good offering dwm1034 (786) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 1, 2011
UPDATED: APR 17, 2016 On DRAFT at DLD....how much better can you get? Pours a hazy amber / orange color with a nice head and lacing...or as good as you can get in a plastic (sigh) glass...both nose and taste is hoppy hoppy hoppy...but not the overly bitter hops that dominate some IPAs and some APAÃ¢â‚¬â„ short, a great beer. Some PAÃ¢â‚¬â„& suffer from shelf life, but this one was probably brewed yesterday! Great stuff. JAF737300 (1291) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 1, 2011
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.
