3.59/5 rDev -1.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Pours a brilliant dark copper brown with a foamy one inch cream head that dissipates slowly, leaving spotty lacing.
Amber malt, grain, and floral hops form the initial aroma. There's a bit of toasted bread character, along with a hint of lemon and rose petals.
The fruity, slightly citrusy character begins the flavor profile, which turns extremely bready, nutty, and toasted mid palate. When mixed with floral hops, the citrus character becomes cherry-like. There's a hint of grapefruit that carries throughout, into the slightly dry finish.
Body is moderate to a touch full, with moderate carbonation and a grain astringency bite.
Good malt character, albeit somewhat overly toasted. Darker than expected. The fruity character was unexpected and offputting. I had this on tap a while back and remember it being much lighter in color...

I was pleasantly surprised to see this on tap in Columbus (Champps Restaurant). It's obviously not as popular as Gumballhead/ZD/Alpha King, but I'm willing to take any offering from 3Floyds.
The initial taste follows the nose. Can't escape FFF hops here and the finish is more bitter than I expected.

Pours a nice mellow yellow complexion, with substantial head of foamy white bubbles. Very fine tree-line lace.
Nose is creamy malts with ample hop presence, though, too. Nice.
Taste is very much akin to a traditional lager, with a dialed-up citrus hops tone. Very flavorful, while remaining true to the lager style. Well tasty and worthy of repeat purchase.
