Pours golden with great head and lacing.

Nose is tropical hops- paw paw, mango, pine. Bit of sourness.

Taste has more tropical flavours. Pine. Very present but underplayed, subtle hops. Lemon.

Mouthfeel has a malt bite, a bit of sourness.

Overall an enjoyable pale ale which perhaps would have been even nicer a bit fresher.

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.

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.

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.
