I think the first thing that needs to be said about this beer, is the amazing label, a trademark of Three Floyds, but this one might be my favorite. The beer pours a great hazy honey color, hints of oranges, yellows and gold when held to the light. A nice finger and a half of soapy white head sits atop the beer that has mild retention but leaves really nice sticky webbed and spotted lacing. The nose is incredible, a big blast of citrus, heavy on grapefruit and sweeter tangerines or lemons. Some tropical notes come forward as well, mangos or pineapples that add additional sweetness but also some tartness. There is also a nice grassy, dank floral element from the hops that transitions nicely into the malt notes, that while faint, still come forward with some nice light breadiness. The flavors are great, big citrus elements, some flavors that, like Gumballhead, reminds me of cat pee, but in a oddly good way, with some nice sappy and sticky pine flavors. The breadiness is also apparent, which is a bit stronger than the nose leads on and finishes with a very dry, bitter and tart apple-y flavor that is oh so nice. The body is great, super full for a pale ale, but not overbearing in any way, extremely palatable.
Verdict: Massive triumph from Three Floyds. I don’t think there is a better pale ale in the world, it has all of the flavors and aromas of a strong double IPA while having almost none of the bitterness or alcohol and remains exceptionally drinkable. This is one to stock up on whenever it gets released, which is not often enough.
