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!

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!

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.

Appearance: Semi-clear golden with prodigious head of fine white carbonation. Perfect, detailed, dense lace.

Aroma: Perfumed, deeply floral hops. Beautiful!

Taste: Tangy grapefruit and citrus hops, with a spicy, bitter feel. I also get some toffee malts clinging on underneath, but this one’s really all about the hops. “Proprietary” hops here mean a new strain maybe? It’s definitely a unique take on an “American Session Ale” or “American Pale Ale”. Hops fiends rejoice, here is another winner from 3F.

Pours a somewhat hazy golden yellow with a slight orange hue, plenty of frothy white that provides gentle lacing down the glass.

Mango, kiwi, apricot, and pineapple notes burst up the nostrils, deserves a snifter pour.

Juicy and tropical hops galore, kiwi, pineapple, and passionfruit are swell.

Mouthfeel is a tropical blast.

Overall, another damn good APA from 3F.
