look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

bottle poured into an imperial pint glass

this beer pours a deep amber/ruby color with an inch of fluffy white head that clings to the side of the glass as you drink. very nice looking brew.

the aroma is full of citrus hops plus a small pine aroma as well. ripe grapefruit and orange zest come to mind. there is a slight caramel smell from the malt, which comes out more as the beer warms and opens up.

taste is amazing with hops leading the way with just enough caramel malt to balance the citrusy bitterness. mouthfeel is medium and silky smooth w/ perfect dryness to leave you wanting another sip.

overall this APA is top notch. exactly what i like from the style and exactly what i expect from three floyds. pick some up if you can!
