Acquired this from gratefulbeerhead so a big THANK YOU goes out to him!
A: This beer pours a rich deep rust/burnt orange to amberish color. A two finger of rocky, creamy, off white head caps this brew. Head recedes at a slower pace leaving heaps of sticky lacing on the glass.
S: Nose has a healthy dose of caramel malts, citrus hops, and some slight floral hops.
T: Taste starts with citrus hops - lots of lemon and grapefruit with some minor orange peel. The middle has just a light touch of floral hops and some caramel malt sweetness. Finish has a bit of piney hops and a lingering malt sweetness.
M: Lighter side of medium body, medium carbonation, slick and oily on the tongue the whole way through.
D: Goes down nicely, well balanced - at first seems like a hop bomb, but then the malts even out nicely. Great drinkability and another fine brew from Three Floyd's.
