I had this one many times. Its about time I reviewed it.

Appearance- The beer was a deep copper color with the head to match.

Aroma- Thus is the pretty standard fff hoppy aroma. You know who brewed this.

Taste- The hops do not overwhelm, but leave there mark. Notes of cinnamon, apple, and lime come to mind. The sweetness gives a peculiar profile to the hops. The aftertaste is dry with the hops fading.

Mouthfeel- The carbonation is mellow which allows the hops to linger. Nice!

Overalll- Three Floyds makes a lot of great beers. People forget about this one.
