I grabbed this at the Trion in New Haven, IN near Fort Wayne. It was on draft and they offer takeout growlers. I heard about it from a couple friends who couldn't say enough about it. I would definitely agree it is a great beer and was a nice surprise (that's a biased statement, I'm a big 3f supporter). It is a very clear light golden color. The smell is great with a very fresh hops dominance. The taste is good, and very light on the malt presence. I was expecting something closer to alpha king, but it doesn't have the richness. It's unusually smooth, light and refreshing. Definitely has a potent hops presence, with lots of citrus spice. Seems like a great session beer and would be great with some spicy food. I hope it becomes a regular.

(on tap at Three Floyds, this past Monday - served in a 20oz pint)
A: light amber liquid, clear... creamy head, killer silken lace
S: first impression: b.o.... then: wildflowers, citrus zest and oily mist... fairly fragrant, earthy, but not explosive (the glass)
T: aggressively citrus-bitter... smooth malt... mostly spicy, resiny hops... fair amount of fruity-sweet resins... delicate grainy toast (NOT toasty grain) in the aftertaste
M: lightly gritty but clean, smooth flow, compact body... bit of a numbing sensation from the alcohol and bitterness in tandem
O: basically an IPA - the fact that they're calling it a pale ale, while it may be true relative to their hoppy beers, is a bit silly... it's an IPA... nothing out of the ordinary, flavor-wise, but it has a nice crisp attack and is undeniably, notably, solidly made

4.7/5 rDev +1.7%

Enjoyed at the brewery in Munster. It was served with a light yellow color and a medium head that had fair retention. The smell was largely fruit, and especially tropical fruit. The taste, as others have said, more resembles that of an IPA as there isn't a whole lot of malt to balance it, but the fruit flavors are great, and it starts off sweet (but not too sweet) and does finish with some bitterness. It's moderately carbonated and goes down very easy. It's very, very similar to White Rajah (which is an IPA) in both smell and taste, but the mouthfeel and color are slightly different. Overall, this is excellent. Yes, it is definitely overhyped as it is not by any means earth shattering, but it is worth seeking.

Stopped in this beerwery on the way back to Detroit from Chi-Town. Bought several cases of different 3 Floyds. This IPA presents a Gold color with a nice head and a super hoppy flavor and finish. Full bouquet aroma and sweet citrusy after-taste. Perfect hoppiness. They should call this brew hoppy rabbit as it doesn't turn one into a zombie.. very nice brew.
