Poured from a 12oz bottle into a Samuel Adams Perfect pint glass. Thanks to my buddy Todd for the Indiana > NY trade.
A: Beautiful, crystal clear, amber color. Mildly aggressive pour leads to a fluffy white two finger head that takes some time to go away and leaves a thick layer of lacing.
S: Woah - smells like an IPA. A really really nice IPA. Piney hops up front, caramel malt back end. This is a wonderfully smelling Pale Ale that really can't be understated.
T: Boom goes the hop dynamite. Hops up front, hops on the back end, hops hops hops. The malt is there to create some balance but holy wow is this the hop-heads wet dream of a Pale Ale.
M: Bitter back end, bitter aftertaste. The aftertaste doesn't linger but that's what makes this a great Pale Ale, not an IPA!!
O: Probably the best Pale Ale I've ever had. I'm a hop head and this is easily the hoppiest pale ale I've ever had. It's easy drinking, a perfect 6.5%. This beer is one I'll be getting a steady supply of as it's one of the best beers I've ever had.

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!
