I really liked this beer. I'm a big fan of Zombie Dust and other hoppy APAs, and this, to me, is right there.
I think they nailed it.
A very good session beer for the hop-lovers.

Fantastic brew. This was an unexpected gem! Absolutely sessionable. Well balanced a juicy. If you see it defiantly pick it up you won't be dissapointed

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.

A- poured golden yellow with 2 fingers of creamy head.

S - sweet cookie like malt is followed bysweet candied citrus

T - sweet biscuit and nut. If you were just tasting the malt, you'd think this was a nut brown ale. That isn't the case though and the citrus hops shine through. I'm reminded of a citrusy, hopped up Fat Tire when I drink this, but not in a bad way.

M - smooth and very drinkable. Very sessionable.

O - I really like this beer, but not quite as much as zombie dust or alpha king

My favorite from the brewery. Mouthwatering session ale that pours light, drinks light, but has excellent flavor, mouthfeel, and a wonderful nose--slightly complex for the style but still straightforward.

Golden colored pour, creamy white head with nice retention. Nicely balanced citrus hoppy notes. Another strong addition to the Three Floyds lineup. Will definitely be going back for more.

My only complaint about this beer company is it's so damn hard to find. 3Floyds brewery is definitely worth searching for though... on the hunt again for their Dreadnaught IPA.

Poured from a 12oz bottle with a hazy orange color into a chilled pint glass and left nice lacing down the sides. At first this brew came at my pallate with lots of fresh fruit flavors like apircot, peach, and orange. On the back end there's flavors of baked goods taste like sweet bread, cake batter and buttercream icing which is what makes this unique beer one of my favorites! It's on the lighter side for a 3 Floyds brew, but it's got a great sweet/bitter mix of hop flavor. This is a new addition to the 3 Floyds lineup and it really hits the spot for me as probably my new fav from their brewery.

Poured from the bottle into a nonic pint glass.

Clear, bright, and golden body color. Shiny and brass colored orange with a big crystal appearance. Head is controlled but large, fistfull big, soapy white, good retention, with a bit of island puck formation, and soapy sudsy appearance.

Aroma is fantastic. Biscuits and floral, hints of mild citrus and a bit of mint. Some weedy to grass notes kick in a bit as well, slightly sticky, with a nice sweetness that comes in following. Excellent smelling brew.

Palate just brings solid goods. Sticky mild honey, with a biscuit rich malt depth. Sweetness of the hop really hits in with a nice bitterness following and juicy light full body. Mix of honey and caramel but nowhere as sweet and thick coating in the palate. Mild weed and soft cookie cracker like dough round out some of the textures and flavors. Juicy, light and full.

The beer goes down so easily and drinkable. Excellent brew.

Pours a clear gold with a thin head.
Smells a light hop with a slight fruit. A malt presence as well.
Tastes a a very juicy citrus hop. It has a slight piney bitter hop as well. A fruity taste is also present. The malt provides for a very balanced taste
Feel much balance for an APA.
Overall another great FFF product. Not as overly hoppy as most FFF, but great balance and the suprise fruitiness sets apart.

One of the easier beers to find by 3 Floyds. Pours a Citrus or orange color. Lacing is thick from bottle. Taste of mild citrus, lemon, and hops. Overall an excellent beer.

12 oz bottle poured into snifter dated 4/1

A: nice inch or so head that sticks around for a bit, Crystal clear orangish red hued in color beer laces the glass like crazy

S: overripe fruit with some sweet candy smell a little grass sweet Citra hops maybe

T: a lot of the hops smell translates but with a wallop of malts that bring the brew up short the malts on this one really shine nicely bready caramel to add to the nice overripe melon taste

M: Creamy very nice on an IPA

O: This is pretty damn good very nice flavors not a ton of alcohol the malts are very interesting on this a Daisy Cutter reminiscent. You'll enjoy this beer if you ever see it try it

12 oz. bottle poured into a 3 Floyd's pint.

Look: Hazy orange Serious lacing along the sides of the glass as you drink. Even the head left lacing.
Smell : Citrus
Taste: More citrus with rind bitter finish.
Feel: Light, crisp, refreshing.
Overall: Tasted like a "lighter" version of Space Station Middle Finger. I could drink quite a few of these in one sitting. Another solid beer from these guys.

About as good as a pale ale gets. Aroma is straight tangerine. Rich layers of citrus flavor with a nice malt backbone. Only picked up a single... probably should have broke down and taken the last $15 sixer.

DELICIOUS! This stuff is like juicy fruit in your mouth. Mildly bitter. Little malty. But so easy drinking. This is now my favorite session. Can't think of anything I would change. Just an excellent beer!

Served on tap at Mikkeller Bar Bangkok.
The aroma is incredible. Beautiful apricot, soft sweetness, beautiful hops. Lovely. So much fruit; sour fruit. This is also the taste. Sweet, lightly sour apricot. A little dry with a brief aftertaste. Incredible pale ale.

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

Aroma - orange, white grape, honeydew melon, floral, British yeast esters, light smooth dank, faint malt.

Taste - just like the aroma with some lemon and lime in the finish. Potent hop flavor with light bitterness. Excellent!

Overall - Zombie Dust is an IPA even though they call it a Pale Ale. This is a legit modern Pale Ale with big hop flavor, moderate aroma and light bitterness. Very good.

Excellent example of the style. Nice citrus/pine aroma which is borne out in the taste. Though the hops are very forward, this beer has an excellent malty body that balances the beer beautifully. No excessive bitterness, just a delicious very drinkable beer. If this was available where I live, it would be in the regular rotation.

Pours a light yellow, looks like a pale, barely toasted pale malts giving it the color, soft tiny bubbled white head.

Definitely a tropical fruit hop vibe, all those mango and pineapple. Super light malt bill allows the hops to shine. Unbalanced and better for it. There's some tangerine flavors as well, 50~ibu feels so good here, barely bitter, too much lush fruit kind of hop flavors to let bitterness weigh it down.

This is like a Zombie Dust with less amarillo I'd say, but less malt as well. A truer pale ale.

Not quite to the caliber of ZD but a solid pale. Much easier to come by than ZD. Would have no qualms about drinking this one every day. Bright and citrus-y without an over-abundance of bitterness.

It's an overused term these days, perhaps, but this beer's hop-payload really deserves the word: juicy. This beautifully-hued copper-gold session ale isn't quite as redolent as one might expect from a 3F ale, but it really packs a fairly refreshing punch on the palate: sticky, bright, classically-Three-Floyds candy-hop floral elements meet a surprisingly passion-fruity undercurrent, with none of those components feeling at all off-kilter or unbalanced. It really is both a NOT NORMAL session-ale—arguably the most day-drinkable six-pack outside of Gumballhead and Jink Proof—but its hoppy heft is closer to, say, Broo Doo or even Zombie Dust than it is to most of its fellow lighter fare from Muenster.

It's good—great, if I weren't judging it against Three Floyds illustrious lineup—but I am still not sure it justifies removing the very underrated Pride & Joy from the regular rotation. We'll see: I've got three more sixes in my case, so there's ample volume to further ascertain.

12 ounce bottle served in a flute

Appearance is vibrant with a deep golden hue and it is completely see through when held up to the light, nice lacing on side of glass, great head retention, fluffy and creamy

Smell is strong citrus up front with a big pineapple presence, also oranges and lemons, pine really comes out the more it warms, huge hop profile which is quite aggressive for a session ale

Taste did not have excessive bitterness as aroma suggested, instead malt body balanced nicely with a piney flavor, hints of biscuit and honey coated bread shine through, hop profile does not back seat but is not too forward either, large caramel hints round out dryness well, very impressed with how the taste of the grains is not overwhelmed even though it is a hop centric pale ale

Mouthfeel is a bit prickly with just the right amount of carbonation, quite refreshing, seems a bit thin at times especially considering how malty it was at times

If this beer was accessible in California, I could imagine drinking this regularly, especially in the summer months light on the palate without compromising flavor, no cloying sweetness or heaviness, just a crisp drinkable ale from 3 Floyds
