3 Floyds Harvest Ale
Poured from the 22oz bottle into a Belgian goblet. Relatively fresh, was bought in March this year.
Appearance- Beer pours cloudy and amber golden with a finger of creamy white head, and ample lacing on the sides of the glass. Beer appears to be a bit red when held to the light, the cloudiness is something of a surprise as there is likely no wheat to be found. It may be unfiltered I guess.
Smell- Oh Bobby. This sweet hop nectar comes leaping from the glass straight into my nose. Grapefruit and pear upfront. So rich, the comments on the bottle call it the finest American malts which I pawned off as a catch phrase, but it actually smells like they are using fine quality malt here, maybe not 2 row, maybe maris otter for this one. The grapefruit here smells fresh and I think this beer would be fine for breakfast.
Taste- Now here is our cream filled crumpet. The citrus is upfront quickly followed by a pine and grapefruit chaser with a wonderful smoothness that coats the tongue and mouth instantly. Malt is very even and balanced, slightly buttery. The finish is smooth and slightly sweet with an excellent hop bitterness.
Mouthfeel- Spicy, creamy, medium high in carbonation (it tried to gush but we were quick on the pour), medium full bodied, very tasty.
Drinkability- Very smooth and drinkable, the hop bitterness is amazingly balanced and 3 floyds is living up to their great expectations that everyone knows that they deliver with.

A: Creamy 2 finger head. Very hazy medium dark amber. Some spotty lacing. Head dissipates to a fine dusting.
S: Sweet candy, very bright and lively floral hops with citrus. This hop smell reminds me that hops and marijuana are close relatives.
T: I have to tell you that this is a trip for a porter/stout guy. It's a big hop taste that feels green, fresh and lively. I thought it would overwhelm me but it didn't. It has that IPA quality which is a sort of revitalizing and zingy. The floral and citrus bitter aftertaste is really intense.
M: Medium/light body. Clean and crisp.
D: Hop lovers should check this out. For such an aggressive brew, it is amazingly drinkable. I am not a huge fan of IPA's but I thoroughly enjoyed this drink and it gives me another reason to try the other 3F's offerings.

22oz bottle picked up at the brewery for $7. Pours into my glass a clear copper orange hue with a half inch of bubbly, sticky white head on top of the brew. Harvest colors for a harvest ale! Aromas blast out of the glass with huge tropical, citric dank hop resins. It literally smells like rubbing a hop cone between your fingers. Wow, it's hard to stop smelling this one. Some slightly sweet caramel in the background, but this is all about the hops.
First sip brings a caramel, lightly toasted grain malt quickly run over by a rush of hops. Citrus and tropical fruit flavors along with green oily hop resins. There's a big bitterness but it never becomes too much. Sorta spicy. A hop lover's dream, this is one tasty brew.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied, smooth and creamy. Perfect carbonation, this brew is incredibly easy to drink and a bomber goes down without the blink of an eye. Another triumph in hoppy goodness from Three Floyds, this time in a lower abv beer. Pick this one up at all costs and drink it fresh. My favorite wet hopped harvest ale I've sampled this year. I need more.

Bomber pours a clear amber orange body with a healthy offwhite head that has some staying power. Lots of clingy patch lace left behind on the glass.
Aroma is fresh and leafy hops. Lots of pine and grassiness here with hints of citrus and toasted caramel.
Mouthfeel is light medium to medium in body with a pleasant carbonation that enlivens. There is an herbal feel on the palate.
Taste opens with citrusy orange hops, quickly seguing into grapefruit rind and pine cone hop bitterness. Caramel malt toastiness is present throughout but never intrudes.
Very endearing and highly drinkable. An excellent harvest ale whose drinkability is limited only by price and availability.

From memory while on our beercation.
Served in a pint glass with two fingers worth of thick and creamy white head, slightly hazy golden body. Good retention and lacing.
Smells amazing, citrus and floral hops with some piney notes mixed in. Carmel sweetness shows through as it warms up.
Tastes like orange juice mixed with piney hops. Wow! Very oily and dank. Some sweet malts are present but not enough to keep it balanced, it is an IPA after all made by FFF, yum.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. A very sticky, oily, piney resinous finish.
Overall I enjoyed this one quite. Very complex and flavorful.
$5 or 6 can't remember.

Darker yellow with an off-white head. Huge aromas of pineapple, pine, mango, and other citrus. Just beautiful. In the taste I got pineapple, grapefruit, lemon, and peach; so much citrus and excellently balanced. Medium carbonation and a little less than medium bodied. Best wet hop beer I've had. Another great FFF's beer!

Thanks to Exiled for sharing this beer.
The beer pours a hazy yellow-brown color with a white head. The aroma is orange citrus and pine with a tad bit of malt. There is no doubt this beer is an American IPA. The flavor is resiny, piney and orange citrus hops with some bready malt. I also get some earthy hops. The citrus characteristics taste like orange juice. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
