I haven't been disappointed by a three floyds brew yet. Great flagship brew. I love the citrus hops that FFFs uses. The hops are similar to that of zombie dust and gumballhead, but this one has more notes of pine. This one doesn't have quite as crisp of a finish as those two. Still an awesome beer and will drink it anywhere it's available.
