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.

On tap at the 2014 Firestone Walker Invitational Beer Fest held at the Paso Robles Event Center in Paso Robles, CA.

Pours a clear orange with a foamy bone head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus zest, and floral aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus zest and earth flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is tasty but simple in my opinion.

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.

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!

Draft pint at Xoco.

Slightly hazed golden orange, lots of visible carbonation, two fingers of creamy parchment colored foam on top. Sticky concentric rings of lace form around the rim of the glass.

Aroma is somewhat hoppy, though I wouldn't call it "explosive" as the description does above. Floral, orange peel and or dried mango, though sort of mild and not over the top. Some pale malt comes through also.

Taste is similarly mild, plenty of pale malt to back up the citrus and floral hop notes. Doesn't really seem characteristic of FFF, but is definitely easy drinking and sessionable. Light bodied and smooth. Kind of sad to lose Pride & Joy for this, to be honest.

12 oz bottle.
Medium body and carbonation.
Unusual elements in both the aroma and the flavor.
Fruity and piney hops dominate. Near medium bitterness.

This one had a strange sweetness that I wasn't a fan of.
