Appearance - Dark amber. One finger of white, spongy head leaves thin, spotty lacing. Quite alluring.

Smell - Bready with some citrus mixed in.

Taste - A little bitter, a little hoppy, a little malty, a little toasty. Traces of citrus fruit and pine linger in the background. A very attractive blend of flavors.

Mouthfeel - Medium body, med/high carbonation, clean finish.

Overall - A nice bitter ale that goes down extremely smooth. Another winner for FFF! Looking forward to having more of this. Can't go wrong with an $8 bomber of this if you like a nice bitter ale.

On tap at Three Floyds, served in a nonic pint.

Pour: Mostly clear, deep rusty orange. About a finger of rusty head forms, and recedes rather quickly. Not a lot of lace here.

Smell: Lots of grapefruit, and some other darker fruits come in. Plum? Some dark breadyness, and a touch of caramel malt step in through the end of the nose.

Taste: Follows the nose with a bitter citrus up front, and a certain chewiness. Lots of bready malt follows, and some caramel. Finishes bitter and malty.

Mouthfeel: Rather light, but at the same time not very drinkable. A bit confusing.

Overall: Solid, but I don't really think this is my style, even with a nice citrusy hop profile.
