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.

12oz bottle poured into a tulip.
Appearance- Dark amber. Crisp, white head.
Aroma- Strong malts up front with a distinct pine smell towards the middle with citrus notes that linger throughout.
Flavor- A pleasant bitter taste that is immediately followed with the pine up front. The citrus notes come through towards the finish balancing the beer off nicely.
Mouthfeel- Bitterness throughout, medium body, high carbonation. Wonderful finish.
Overall- This is one loaded pale ale - not for the faint of heart. Full of wonderful hop notes and a distinct malt profile. Very bitter for a pale ale, but not unpleasant. Certainly one of the better pales out there. Highly recommended.

Poured from tap into nonic pint at the brewery. Deep caramel color with a nice foamy head. Piney hop and sweet caramel aroma. taste is bitter hops with some sweet caramel finish. For me the bitterness is just too much. Its actually way too bitter for my likes; which is the norm for FFF. Huge malt and bitter profile - and lots of people like that, just not me. Good brew for sure, I just don't get the hype on this one.
