look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A: In the 3Floyd's teku, Man O Awe poured a tall two+ finger tall head with off white soapy looking bubbles. Great retention, it took 2mins? For it to fall. The beer is a blood orange color, slightly darker with a mild haze. Not really see through because of the darker complection.

S: Fresh pine (christmas tree like) and sweet tarts are moderate, tropical melons that seem under ripe. Very unique. A grassy woods, kind of vibe. Very earthy overall in the hop department. Not really picking up any malt character or yeast esters.

T: Clean hop flavor with fresh oranges, melons and undertones of pine. Not what I expected from the aroma. A significant amount of malt character comes through in the way of bread crust, toast, crackers, very bread focused without the caramel and toffee sweetness. The balance on this beer is spot on in the center, I love it. Clean fermentation character and a fairly clean finish with just a hint of bread and orangey hops.

M: Crisp and refreshing moderate body with moderate carbonation. No harshness or astringency. Extremely drinkable.

O: By far the most balanced and session-able 3Floyd's I've had. A distinct hop character I've never had with a nice flavor that doesn't get boring. 3Floyd's hit the nail with this one, but this babby in 6-Packs!

Pours a brilliant copper color in my imperial pint glass, big thicket of cream colored head forms very nicely. Aroma is definitely malt forward hints of caramel and bready grains, with dank earthy citric Michigan hops...really clean smelling APA. Flavor has a sweet malt character, again caramel and full on grain assault with fruit forward ale character balancing dank hops, earthy, citrus peel well made complex APA not in line with some of their other heavy hitting IPAs or pale ales this is definitely less hoppy but still full flavored across the board. Mouthfeel is medium bodied slightly sticky sugars with a resinous oily hop texture going on even flowing carbonation very smooth not abrasive if anything just a bit too sweet for my pale ales. Overall, pretty solid well brewed I'm not in awe of it but I enjoyed it.

Cloudy dark side honeyed pour. One and a half inch white head with staggered lacing.

I smell nothing but wet glass.

Unpleasant metallic bitter hop leaf and that doesn't even last long. Malt is there in simple form.

Carbonation is playful and lighter bodied.

Whaaa Whaaa?!? Got this "fresh?" off the shelf last week. As I'm reviewing this I can't help but to think FFF is better than this. Sorry boys but this is a stinker, juz saying. Bad bottle-maybe. Man-o-yawn.
