12 oz bottle poured into pint glass.

This pours wonderfully, dark amber/copper color. Nice off white two finger head. Small lacing around the edges. Lots of orange peel in the aroma. Sweet dark malts hidden in their as well. Overall, the smell is very balanced.

The taste is more of an IPA then pale ale. Very well balanced hops and malts. Easy to drink. One of the best pale ales around. Needs to come to Ohio more.

On tap at Apex for Gigantic Beer Week.

A: Nearly red with a thin white head. Fairly translucent.

N: Good nose with a pure pineapple and pine nose. A hin tof mango, some earth, and plenty of malt shining through.

T: Well balanced while leaning towards the hoppy side. Lots of biscuit, and plenty more of the pine. Showcases the hops well.

M: Dry with a round mouthfeel. It's quite light and very easy to drink.

O: Cleans out the palate while remaining easy to put back. I would have this any time, and I'm really glad I was able to try it on tap. It's strange how good Three Floyds is with APA and yet their DIPAs are at best, average.
