American pale ale
6.66% ABV 68 IBU

APPEARANCE: Poured out a vibrant rust color. Star bright clear no haziness at all. Great big pillowy egg shell white head. Great retention and lacing.

AROMA: Strong pine and citrus right away. Smells like breakfast of fresh squeezed orange juice and warm toast. Malty sweetness and carmel.

TASTE: Another 3 Floyds APA that drinks like an IPA to me. Very piney and citrus right up front. Hops hit in the middle and rounds out with that great maltiness I got on the nose. Literally taste so good makes you want to slap yo mama!

MOUTHFEEL: Medium to light body along with the carbonation. Dry snappy finish that almost leaves you thirsty.

OVERALL: Once again very impressed with a 3 Floyds brew. Still can't believe this is an APA reminds me of a wonderful low key west coast IPA. Would for sure try and get more of this goodness.

RATING: 4.4/5 Zombie Heads!
