Got in a trade with David Eddie.
Nice head that has good retention. I poured this beer into a pint glass.
Smell of glorious hops. MMM. Hoppier than most pale ales. Hoppier than certain IPAs. Very nice hoppy taste, but not one dimensional at all. Pale malts come into balance. A little bit of caramel, but not as much as other pale ales. Brewed more like an ipa, but it's not. It's just a stronger pa. Tastes like centennial hops rather than cascade, however different than westcoast brewers like stone and alesmith's cascades.
Decent mouthfeel. A nice sessionable beer. MMM.

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!
