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.

Had it on tap at Kuma's in Chicago. Not impressed. Bizarre, malty, bread-like aftertaste takes away from the hop profile. Almost tasted like it came from a bad tap line. Not the best offering from the usually stellar 3 Floyds. I have a feeling you'll be able to find this one in stores easily. Not so much everything else they make.

Felt like this was the best grain bill in a FFF's hoppy beer. Not as hoppy or with the body of ZD but a great pale ale. Nice levels on this one.

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.

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

Appearance - The is golden with a bubbly whie head.

Smell - The smell is a weakly citrus.

Taste - The taste begins with a modest citrus as a defining hop profile. Notes of butterscotch and sweet malts hide in the back. The aftertaste is dry and biscuity, largely erasing the sweet hops.

Mouthfeel - The carbonation was potent enough to brush away the sweetness of the citrus.

Overall - The overall profile is that of a weakened APA. I will take regular over unleaded.

Went to the brewery yesterday and people were carrying out cases of this at a time so I figured I would give it a try.

A - Golden Color. Very cloudy with medium bright white head and strong lacing.

S - Nice hop nose with a mixture of fruit, citrus, and a very pleasant herbal character. Definitely full of dry hops giving it a very fresh hop aroma. There is also a significant amount of malt graininess and a full ale fruity character.

T - Has a balanced hop profile just like the smell with about 65% hops and 45% ale in flavor. It's a nice session IPA that has a great "homebrew" character that you don't really get with most craft beer. Subtle malt and a yeast character that make this a good drinking beer. Nice soft bitter finish that helps to clear the palate.

M - Lighter mouth-feel. Has some bitterness and a softer finish making this a great drinking beer. Light to moderate carbonation.

Overall, a solid session IPA. I did really enjoy the less "clean" aspect since it reminds me of a great homebrew pale ale. It's not offensive from any angle and could be a nice drinking beer. It's basically a hoppy pale ale. I'd recommend trying it but don't expect it to blow your socks off.

A very fruity APA. Lots of tropical notes here within a fairly light bodied pale. Nice golden hue on the profile with a juicy, hop forward feel.

Not bad. A little bit light for my high ABV taste buds, but on a hot summer day, this would be alright. Everything is inline, just not for winter drinking. Especially drinking right after a On the Wings of Armageddon.

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

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.

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.

4.03/5  rDev +0.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

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.
