3.49/5  rDev -3.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

12oz bottle into SN hop glass.

A: Pours a dark amber with a huge, billowing, fluffy, and greasy looking vanilla colored head that took forever to collapse into thick and oily film. Rocky chunks of sticky lace was left down the glass.
S: As expected, hops dominate the nose. Tangerine citrus and slight tropical fruit nectars come through. The hops are resinous and fresh smelling.
T: Hop oils, citrus, and cantaloupe hit first followed by caramel and amber malt. The finish is herbal and there’s a touch of tree sap, and the aftertaste is bitter with citrus rind, tobacco, and resin. Leafy hops and tobacco leaf linger long after the swallow.
M: Medium-full body, greasy and oily resinous mouthfeel, soft and fluffy carbonation. The finish isn’t necessarily boozy, but the bitterness is a bit rough around the edges.
O: Definitely a potent and hoppy beer for a pale ale. Flavors are exceptionally resinous. Drinks well but it could be smoother.

A have heard so much about Three Floyds. But I will have to say this one was a bit of a disappointment. Someone said an English style Pale Ale. That's about right. Bass maybe, the carbonation on this one was a bit flat and there was virtually no aroma in the smell. More malt than hop forward. I have had a few pale ales lately that have done very little for me. I can say that this one is right in line. Maybe I just don't care for this style. This was my first one and out of the pack because I had heard so much about Three Floyds and I am sure this is not as representative as their original stuff, but this beer was a solid alright. It wasn't great but it wasn't bad either. On the the next one!
