Single-handedly, Three Floyds is redefining what the American pale ale is to become. Juicy hops rest upon semi-dry caramel for a bitter-sweet taste to boast about hop flavor and smooth bitter dryness. YumYum is living up to its namesake.

Its moderately hazed copper-gold pour casts upon it a creamy eggshell white blanket of foam. With the nose diving in, the hoppy ale opens with a scent that can only be described as candied hops. Its lavish bouquet expels a plethora of tropical fruit with citrus and herb to follow. Its honey and caramel sweetness skims the fruit flavor, giving them all a vibrant ripeness that seems of fruit juices.

Impeccably balanced, its short malt sweetness lays on the tastebuds with a porous veil of honey and caramel glaze. Hops reveal their juicy glory with mango, apricot, pineapple, kiwi and passionfruit. Its tropical punch character is backed with vivid red grapefruit, blood orange and nectarine as citrus and orchard fruits chime in. Finishing with a bright chive and cilantro grassiness, a hint of cannabis isn't far off.

Balanced until deep within its finish, the ale's bitterness is smooth and softly of spruce and botanical grasses and herbs. A crisp, clean and clear exit from the palate ensures a high rate of refreshment from the medium-light ale, yet a suggestion of buttered and salted graham cracker is peculiarly satisfying.

Poured into my Three Floyds tapered pint glass

A: Poured a clear orange/deep gold color with a fluffy white head that stuck around nicely

S: Huge hop aroma on this beer. Citrus and a honeydew like melon aroma

T: Follows the smell, lots of citrus and melon. I got orange notes, hints of grapefruit, some pineapple, and honeydew melon. The bitterness was pleasant, not over the top. The finish had some sweet malt, but this was a hop forward beer for sure.

M: Had decent body to it, not as thin as some other session ales I've had lately. Medium carb.

O: This says session ale on the bottle, but to me it was better than most of the other "session IPAs" I've had. It definitely drinks like a very hop forward APA. I'll miss Pride and Joy being easily accessible, but this was a very tasty substitute!

Tried this at the brew pub. More akin to zombie dust. I hope they keep this one around and start bottling it because I was blown away. Better than gumball head, pride n joy, and jinx proof. Another amazing beer from an amazing brewery. It has joined the elites such as APW, permanent funeral, ZD, and Alpha King in terms of ales.

12oz bottle from 6 pack. Just began bottling to replace Pride & Joy as a year round beer.

A- Well filtered orange. Whispy off white head with good lacing.
S- Citrusy hops. Candied orange. Pretty mellow.
T- Bitter hoppiness upfront, followed by the citrus peel. Brings good flavor for a "session IPA".
M- Thin and drinkable

O- One of the top 2-3 session IPAs I've had. Enjoyable. At ~5.5%, this is on the higher side of a session ABV
