My favorite Three Floyds beer to date and one deserving of its high rating and lavish praise. Pours deep gold with good clarity and a small, cream colored head that settles fairly quickly. Clingy patches of lace stick to the sides of the glass.
Huge, hoppy citra aroma and flavor; very little sweetness; dry finish; lots of lingering bitterness. Fresh pine, citrus, pineapple, mild oniony, catty note beneath, super juicy. Minimal malt presence, just the slightest dry, bready backbone.
Medium body, medium, somewhat lively carbonation but retains a level of creamy smoothness as well. Terrific mouthfeel and simply terrific overall; does a lovely job of balancing intricate hoppy flavor with just the right amount of bitterness; the latter never overwhelms the tastiest aspects of the beer. Thanks to Mjmoser for a handful of ridiculously fresh bottles!

Poured into a tulip glass. The liquid is a hazy orange with plenty of bubbles rising slowly to the surface. The pour kicks up a huge off-white frothy head that makes pouring the entire bottle at once difficult, and leaves sheets of lace until the beer is completely gone.
Aroma is wonderful dank hops - pine, grapefruit, oranges, hints of weed. Hints of sugar-cookie malts complement the hops while still allowing the hops to dominate. Exactly the type of aromas I love from hops.
The taste follows up on all the hop flavors from the nose. Even though it's technically only a pale ale, there is no doubt that this is a tongue-scraping hop assault - but just done at the perfect volume. It's bitter and drying, but not too much, and there's just enough of a kiss of smooth malt flavor to keep it in check. Aftertaste is dank hops and a bit of caramel and resin.
Mouthfeel is smooth and silky. Medium- to light-bodied, with a moderate amount of carbonation. Perfect for the style.
Overall, a really great pale ale - totally lives up to the hype. Nice hop profile, even if a bit one-dimensional, nice malt balance, nice mouthfeel, nice everything. Thanks to batfireman for the trade!
