Three Floyds Space Station Middle Finger
Pours a clear golden with a medium white head. The aroma has grassy hops, pineapple, mango, orange, peach, and some lesser amounts of pine and caramel. Its quite enticing. The taste is dry with some minor bitterness. Its heavier in pine, and has a good amount of both peach and pineapple. I find lesser amounts of grapefruit and orange, with hints of resin. It has a short peach aftertaste. This is medium in body, with a slick texture, and some good lively carbonation. I really enjoyed this one.

12 oz bottle. Pours a nice straw yellow with two finger head. Aroma is pine, mango, and earthy. Taste is barnyard due to the wheat with a nice light tropical fruit from the hops. Moderate bitterness and dryness on the end. Mouthfeel could be creamier, light bodied. Overall a solid hoppy wheat beer that is always enjoyable.

Rated on 10-08-2016 at Black Dog Pub, Fort Wayne, IN. The appearance of this draft beer when served is a small beige head that is mostly lasting, medium yellow transparent body, no visible carbonation observed, and a fair amount of lacing adorns the glass. The aroma is citrus hops, fruity and earthy. The flavor presents moderate bitterness, citrus hops, fruity, and earthy. The mouthfeel of this IPA beer is moderate carbonation and this beer is medium bodied. This beer is very drinkable with a very light bitter aftertaste. The taste is very pleasant and this beer is worth trying and a beer that I would partake in again.

Aroma has tropical fruits, passion fruit, berries and a touch of vanilla. Taste has tropical fruits, light citrus, sweet malts, passion fruit, some tangerine, and vanilla. Medium bodied with some alcohol. The carbonation is soft and the blend is solid. Finishes tangy sweet with some fruity bitterness for a bit of balance. Well ... unexpected and very interesting. Nice, as ever, from Floyds. 14.2

12 oz bottle poured, sent over by Prufrockstar. Thanks Chris! This is awesome. Updated bottle artwork, bottled on 11/30/2016. Pours a thick golden orange color with a ton of lasting foam head. A fantastic aroma of grain and citrusy hops. Some oranges and a vanilla like note too. Very nice. The kind of beer that is good on all occasions. Flavor is a spicy malt up front, a little bready as well. Citrus like linger. Grapefruit and lemon. Very nice pale here.

Three Floyds Jinx Proof Lager
12 oz. bottle, consumed on 1-10-17. Pours a bright, clear gold to bronze with good effervescence and a moderate amount of cream-colored head. Good, long-lasting lacing. Looks good. Hoppy aroma pops out immediately upon opening. Mixed aroma of American and noble continental European hops. Really nice hops pungency in aroma. Good, hoppy lager flavor. Champagne from the yeast and bitterness from the hops. Really tasty and likable. My only criticism of the flavor is that it’s a bit simplistic. Very nice, bitter, almost dirt-like finish and aftertaste. In this world of dumbed down “New England IPAs” (which have neutered the bitterness of their hops in favor of citric and “tropical” aromatics and juicy flavor) dominating on Untappd and at the other site, it’s nice to see an American craft beer embrace the bitterness of its hops. Light to medium body. Soft and smooth in the palate. Really likable palate effects. I know that Three Floyds has long been one of the best craft breweries in the country, but nonetheless this comes as a pleasant surprise in terms of just how good it is. Quite good across the board; I easily could have given this a 4 or even a 4.1 if I were in a slightly more generous mood. Underrated here.

Pour a clear bright copper body with a one finger foamy beige head. The nose is sweet toasty and vienna malt with a minimal hoppiness. The flavor is pretty standard Vienna, some sweet malt, light huskiness, a little caramel, some hop bitterness on the finish. Light to medium bodied with soft fizzy carbonation. Decent, not great.

Bottled on 11-1-16. 22 oz bottle poured, with a huge thanks to Prufrockstar for this bottle. Always a treat, and you sir, are the man. The final Christmas celebration of the year, happens today, and it might be my favorite of them all! Pours black with a cola tan fizz head. A moderate, roasted, almost smokey malt aroma. Flavor is a mellow impression, toasted malt. Has brown sugar hints, and a nice milk chocolate, but light. Toasted finish. I love how mellow this beer is up front, but ends on a huge roasted note. Very pleasant porter. A Christmas beer that refuses to be really sweet and excessively added with random stuff. Just the brown sugar, which is perfect for my liking. Bold chocolate. Fantastic porter.

Cloudy copper color. Aromatic spicy citrus aroma. Taste - caramel malt sweetness and a hoppy bitterness that balances it out with perfection. A mix of citrus, earthiness and a something herbal. Sweeter than your typical APA but very well balanced. Easy drinking and flavorful. Wonderful! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Half pint shared by eachnotesecure - thanks agian, Joe! Pours a cloudy gold with an inch of white head that takes a while to settle, lacing the glass on the way down. Lots of citrus and stone fruit in here, with pineapple, florals, and sweet malts. Light-medium bodied, with moderate to medium carbonation and a sweet, bitter, balanced mouthfeel. I don’t know what the hops are, but it’s nice.

Tap at Mellow. Pours a glowing, golden straw color with a finger of foam that lingers. Lime, tangerine, green pineapple alongside some herbal aromas: spearmint and grass. Light bodied and easily crushable. More fresh spearmint, fennel alongside white grapefruit and lime. Citrusy, bitter finish. Bright and delicious.

Three Floyds Skeletonwitch Red Death Sour
22 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 8/29/2016. Pours slightly hazy deep orange/light reddish color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense white head with decent retention, that reduces a thin ring of lace. Minimal lacing on the glass. Aromas of big tart/sour cherry, berries, lemon, lime, green apple, white wine, oak, hay, straw, pepper, wheat, and cracker; with lighter notes of caramel, brown sugar, vanilla, almond, funk, and yeast/oak earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of fruity/funky/acidic yeast, cherries, and moderate pale malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big tart/sour cherry, berries, lemon, lime, green apple, white wine, oak, hay, straw, pepper, wheat, and cracker; with lighter notes of caramel, brown sugar, vanilla, almond, funk, and yeast/oak earthiness. Moderate fruity/lactic tart/sourness and light yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of sour cherry, berries, lemon, lime, green apple, white wine, oak, hay, straw, pepper, wheat, cracker, and yeast/oak earthiness on the finish for a while. A bit tangy from fruit. Great complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/funky/acidic yeast, cherries, and moderate pale malt flavors; with a great malt/tart/sourness balance, and zero puckering/astringent flavors after the finish. Light-moderate dryness from tart/sourness, increasing through the glass. Medium carbonation and body; with very smooth and moderate creamy/grainy/acidic balanced mouthfeel that is awesome. Zero warming alcohol for 8.5%. Overall this is an awesome blended sour ale. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/funky/acidic yeast, cherries, and moderate pale malt flavors; extremely smooth and easy to drink for the ABV, with the balanced acidity. Great complexity and oak presence from being a blend of Berliner weisse and an older grand cru sour. A highly enjoyable offering.

Three Floyds Alpha King
12 oz bottle. Pours a deep golden orange with a billowy 2-3 finger head. Aroma is a mix of pine and earthy grass with floral notes. Taste is more earthy grass/floral with a touch of pine and the slightest hint of citrus. A solid malty background is in symbiosis with the hops and makes the taste exceptionally balanced. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, it is easy to see why this is 3F’s flagship ale, and a trendsetter in the pale ale community. While not the absolute best anymore, you can never go wrong with a swig of Alpha King.
