Congratulations! Welcome to flavor country. This most recent FFF’s pale ale has just the malt backbone to support an explosive juicy hop profile derived from a new blend of proprietary hops. Cheers.

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 out of the brand new released 12 oz bottles on September 18, 2014 at home.
For a refreshing Pale Ale, this beer packs a hoppy citrus punch that is not overly abusive. The mouthfeel is light and crisp with a hop-thirst quenching bitterness that's hard to beat. This isn't Zombie Dust, but it is definitely worth a try.

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!

this is a truly amazing pale ale. a friend of mine went for a hike near golden and found some hops growing wild. being the prolific homebrewer he is, he brewed a number of beers with the hops, but neither of us could identify them. they has a chili pepper nose, a cantaloupe melon character, and a pineapple even peanutty vibe. its so weird that all his beers got tasted this week, and this thing fell into my lap. i swear the hops are the same. maybe its not a new varietal at all, but a rediscovered old wild vine, thats sure what it feels like. brassy hazy beer, killer carbonation and head, and a nose that does absolutely no justice to how interesting these hops are. its juicy and has note of melon and lemon cream and indeed that faint chili pepper character. i dont know what this hops is, but i need more of it. my only critique of this beer is its label calling it a session ale. i mean, it is, i would drink ten of these if i had them tonight, but i consider a session ale under 5% abv, thats my line, self declared, but i stand by it. its just a pale ale, but its not just a pale ale. as vibrant and unique as any hoppy beer going right now, this is absolutely brilliant. thanks to claystation for giving me this, but im afraid he doesnt realize what he has given up. this is killer, really really good. someone tell me more about the hops!

I thought this was one of my favorite offerings from FFF. I think if you are a fan of the unique fruity character in the aroma and tase, you will love it. It was all fruit through and through and I thought there was just enough malt to let it stay present but over not overpower. Reminded me of a fruit stripe stick of gum...but in a good way

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.
