Pours a slightly hazy orangey amber. Tons of fluffy white head that had hints of peach color to it. Amazing lacing and the head held fantastically. Aroma is bright tangerine, apricot, sweet grass and floral. Mildly bitter. Taste is much like aroma. Tangerine and apricot followed by the grassy floral notes. Medium body and carbonation; but a creamy quality to the body as well. Very good beer. (403 characters)

Very complexed APA. Pours a typical amber colour for an APA. Nice head that dissipates to a lace on the top. Heady, hoppy, banana/lemon aroma. Tastes like a mild lemon drop. Mild malty mouth feel. Slight bitterness. Nice colaberation between Amager Bryghus of Denmark and 3 Floyds Brewery of Munster Indiana. (308 characters)

Pours brilliant orange with a lemon tinged two finger head of foam, medium carbonation.

Way more floral notes than I was expecting, citrus, melon, and a hint of hop resins.

Notes of citrus, bread-like and caramel malt backbone, and very floral and earthy.

Mouthfeel is light-medium bodied, with medium carbonation. Finishes dry.

Overall, not the hop bomb I was looking for from a 3F collab, but glad to try it regardless. (425 characters)

Bottle: Poured a hazy bright orangey color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and good lacing. Aroma of citrus hops with nice floral notes. Taste is also dominated by floral citrus notes with light tangerine notes and some residual sugar notes that are also noticeable. Body is full with good carbonation. Nice hops profile but a bit too much residual sugars. (372 characters)

Poured from the bottle into a nonic pint glass.

Tangerine solid orange colored body, with a bit of opaque and almost unfiltered appearance. Head creation is a bit out of control. Thick, huge frothy light cream white but taking over the glass and outrageously way too tall. Big shampoo and soapy retention, clingy, thick, and aggressive, but just too large and ridiculous.

From a rough start comes a real impressive bouquet. Hop bursting notes of citrus orange, lime zest, and spritzy kumquat like fruits all over. Airy grains and mild toast and biscuit aroma but much more powdery and not dense. Explosive nose of grain and hop surprisngly, and a citrus explosion all over, with a bring sweetness to match not of sugars but true citrus fruit. Real impressive.

Palate follows nicely. Light body with a big hop juiced front that ironically gives depth to the malt body which at first seems quite wet on first sip. Juiced citrus and tropics, hints of mango dominate. Light body and quenching aftertaste as well, with more fruit body thickness coming out on the palate. Great lingering aromatics on the finish of kumquats and giant zest and rind.

A real impressive beer, sort of going off kilter in it's presentation and delivery though, but one of those classic American pale ales that you sort of remember from Three Floyds and a brewery that just knows how to get it at least right on the palate. (1,410 characters)
