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!

I haven't been disappointed by a three floyds brew yet. Great flagship brew. I love the citrus hops that FFFs uses. The hops are similar to that of zombie dust and gumballhead, but this one has more notes of pine. This one doesn't have quite as crisp of a finish as those two. Still an awesome beer and will drink it anywhere it's available.
