4.45/5 rDev +4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Poured from 12oz bottle to pint glass.
A: Looks great. I love the crimson that's flowing with bubbles, some hanging to the side while others support a huge off-white head, which ends up leaving pretty nice lacing.
S: Lots of fruit with a solid hop background and some slight pine.
T: Perfect balance between the fruitiness and the hop bitterness, which becomes most prominent in the finish. Fruits include a little bit of citrus, melon, and maybe some berries. Very impressive.
M&D: Mouthfeel was good, medium body with solid carbonation makes for a nice drink. The drinkability is pretty high for this beer. I could sit and have a few of these and not get bored of overwhelmed.
Overall: What most impressed me about this beer is that it's one of the few top 100-borderline top100 beers that's simply enjoyable. This beer has no amazing qualities you can't find in other beers, it's just a well-balanced delightful beer with no weak points. One of the best I've had in a while...glad to be on the Wisc. border.

American pale ale
6.66% ABV 68 IBU
APPEARANCE: Poured out a vibrant rust color. Star bright clear no haziness at all. Great big pillowy egg shell white head. Great retention and lacing.
AROMA: Strong pine and citrus right away. Smells like breakfast of fresh squeezed orange juice and warm toast. Malty sweetness and carmel.
TASTE: Another 3 Floyds APA that drinks like an IPA to me. Very piney and citrus right up front. Hops hit in the middle and rounds out with that great maltiness I got on the nose. Literally taste so good makes you want to slap yo mama!
MOUTHFEEL: Medium to light body along with the carbonation. Dry snappy finish that almost leaves you thirsty.
OVERALL: Once again very impressed with a 3 Floyds brew. Still can't believe this is an APA reminds me of a wonderful low key west coast IPA. Would for sure try and get more of this goodness.
RATING: 4.4/5 Zombie Heads!
