Poured from the 12oz bottle with psychadelic green and pink cap which indicates it was brewed and bottled at the actual Three Floyd's Brewery in Munster, IN.

Smells beautiful of hop fruity juiciness.

Big hops up front with citrus flavors, very floral, and is also backed up with some nice balancing malt. Very sweet, fruity, but the finish is dry and bitter and clean.

One awesome American Pale Ale, the flavors are great the smell is intoxicating on its own, and the body is full and heavy enough without being too heavy.

I highly recommend this one, I've had it bottled as well as on tap. If you're ever out one night and see this on tap, yeah, order it up.

I got this brew from SirSketch, Thanks Zach!

12oz bottle served in a standard pint glass.

L - murky orange/amber color with a huge beige head of glass sticking foam.

S - pine and citrus hops fill the nose.

T - the hops steal the show here, citrus bitterness bites hard with just enough malt to balance things out before one more bitter bite on the finish.

F - medium bodied with a mild carbonation feel.

D - smooth, tasty and very easy to drink.

A - Pours a light copper with a thin off white head and sticky lacing.

S - Pine and citrus hops with a little caramel toffee in the background.

T - Pine, citrus and grapefruit hops with caramel in the background. Slightly on the bitter side throughout.

M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation and a dry hoppy finish. Slightly creamy.

D - It tastes and drinks more like an IPA but I am not complaining. A bold hoppy pale ale.
