Had on draft in Milwaukee

A - a copper body and very thin white head.

S - Grapefruit, grass, floral notes, and spice.

T - A very unique hop flavor - grapefruit, earth, resin, and spice. Malt is biscuity and fairly hearty. A sustained bitterness on the finish.

M - Medium bodied and well carbonated.

O - A great pale ale. Like Sierra Nevada on steroids.

Usually I drink IPAs/ double pales, but this was a nice change! Cool look, the only thing was a weird feel, but I think I feel that for most Three Floyds Beers. Good stuff!

I wish I could get this one on a regular basis rather than having to beg for a trade!
