4.46/5 rDev +4.7%
Nonic pint served up at the brewery - my first 3F.
Pours deep amber with a 1-2F off white head. Great lacing!
Good balance in the aromas - nice mix of earth, caramel malts, and citrusy hops.
Flavors are virtually all hop-forward. Grapefruit skin leads the way, with some orange pith, and kiss lemon zest. Could've used a touch more sweetness for my taste, but he'll, I'm a sweet tooth. MF is awesome ... Clean, and crisp as hell for the ABV.
Killer APA, no doubt

Dark honey color with a thick head. Kingly lace and retention.
Immersive grapefruit and wet grass aroma. So good.
Tastes like grapefruit juice. Lots and lots of hoppy grapefruit goodness with very little bitterness. Nice carmelized malt background. Sometimes I wonder why I love grapefruity beers but don't drink regular grapefruit juice. It has no alcohol, vitamin C, and it's cheaper. Beer is beer.
My first ever Three Floyds on tap. It's not something you forget.
