Thanks for the growler Chris!

Poured into a Half Acre pint glass. Clear, light-orange body with about a fingers worth of white foamy head. Good lacing all the way down to the bottom of the glass.

Could smell this one right away as I cracked the cap on the growler. Juicy, fresh, hops, lots of citrus and some sweet malts lingering in the background of the aroma. Piny, grassy, hops and dry orange wedge.

Orange-lemon citrus on the tongue with a good helping of grassy hops. Malty-bready notes beneath. Has a good hop kick to it for an APA, but the base beer keeps it true to the style. Touch of pepper from the hops on the finish. Very easy to drink.

Mouthfeel is smooth and chewy up front, but still manages to finish crisp and clean on the finish. Nice weight to the body. No sign of the 6.2% ABV.

Overall, this is an excellent APA. Definitely one the best I've had. Right up there with Hill Farmstead's Edward. Really easy to drink with lots of flavor. A great summer beer. Highly recommended for the style!

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured into a pint glass, revealing a finger of head over a rich-looking amber body. Some bubbles. Smells light with floral hops and a hint of lemon. Smells refreshing.

Tastes very bitter up front in a tongue-tingling way. Tons of flavor in every sip. Decent citrus rind character, not zesty but solid. Bitterness gives way to a nutty, malty and slightly meaty finish. Carbonation is small, tingly and comes in waves. Medium-bodied with a silky, voluminous mouthfeel. Slightly dry, just slightly. Pretty drinkable.

Overall a really nice APA. An easy one for sure to enjoy pint after pint of on a relaxing day.

Growler courtesy of Iain. Thanks!

A: The beer pours a hazed golden orange color with a huge off-white/khaki head and nice sticky lacing.

S: Great hop nose to this beer. Big pine and citrus peel. Tons of grapefruit with a little bit of bready malts and a hint of toast and caramel. Mildly grassy on the back end.

T: Mildly sweet malts of bread and toffee. Big citrus peel, pine, and grass hop flavor. A moderate level of bitterness to it and a hint of fruitiness. Nice solid flavors to the beer.

M: Medium in body with a medium level of carbonation.

O: Really easy to drink and a great flavor and aroma.

64 oz growler into a pint glass. Huge thanks go to Stakem for grabbing this for me on a recent trip out to the brewery for Dark Lord Day.

Pours a clear copper in the glass, topped with a couple fingers of eggshell-white head. This retains with a soapy ½ finger, which drenches the sides of the glass with rich sticky lacing. The aroma pops in the nose, with a fresh and floral feel that carries a sticky mix of ripe tropical fruit, sweet grains, and more bitter smelling grapefruit notes which cut through the center of the nose. Maybe just a smidge of alcohol warmth hangs on the edges here but it mostly serves to give this some presence in the nostrils.

The taste mirrors the aroma, with a fresh and biting grapefruit character that controls this with a zesty bitterness that spreads out into the mouth. This is balanced along the back by a sticky sweet blend of tropical fruitiness and sweet malts. This finishes with lingering dry notes of pine and bitter pith, which while aggressive, still manages a fresh and bright feeling itself that hangs in the mouth. The mouthfeel is medium bodied, with a firm prickly creaminess that blows up in the mouth but then gets slicker on the sides as this heads towards the swallow. That 6% ABV feels spot on in the mouth, giving this a touch of assertiveness on the palate but without any warming alcohol flavors to speak of.

This is a just another in a long line of awesome hoppy beers from Three Floyds, as this stands right up there along such other fantastic APAs from them as the Alpha King and Pride & Joy. There is a LOT of fruity sweetness to this from those Citra hops, which took me a bit to wrap my palate round, but once more of that balancing grapefruit bitterness came out to play, I was fully on board. I hope rumors of the eventual bottling of this come to fruition.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Deep orange color, mercy and dense looking. A one finger white fluffy head, based on the tap pour I think the growler is a touch flatter than the tap version. Very nice lacing is starting to form as well.

Just straight up citrus grape fruit from the second the growler is opened.

Sharp citrus opening, blast of grape fruit with perhaps a bit of lemon zest. The malt here adds weight at the start, but perhaps the least impact I’ve ever noticed. I just can’t describe any flavor from the malt, just the sugary weight of it. At the same time there is a decent amount of weight from the malt the finish is surprisingly watery. Warmer the watery flavor is less noticeable and the malt/hops just linger longer. Still no real complexity.

The mouth feel and the taste go hand in hand. A bit more weight than some of the cleaner IPAs out there, but a surprisingly void of flavor finish leaves me almost thinking I just finished a glass of water. The hops then come back to linger, but this is an odd mix. The carbonation is a touch low, but I think again this is an impact of the growler and not the beer itself.

This would make an amazing 6 pack style regular release IPA for three floyds. It isn’t over powering or overly intense, but it has that wonderful grape fruit kick. I’m torn on this one unlike any beer I’ve had in a while. The flavors are amazing, but they lack the intense notes I want. The finish doesn’t excite me and the carbonation doesn’t add anything helpful.

Since this is called a pale ale, I'm not sure what to say there. In many ways it is more pale ale than IPA but the hops are just so in your face....

Growler thanks to Captinredbeard, you da man Corey! Poured into my CCB tulip.

A: Deep burnt orange color. The pour dropped a finger and a half of cream colored head that left great sticky lace.

A: Intense sticky hop nose. Notes of pine sap, grapefruit, orange, and pineapple. There is a hefty malt backbone to balance out the hoppy nose. Also get some candi sugar for sweetness.

T: I obviously get the hops up front, the citrus and pine sap are prevalent. This is followed by a carmel malt backbone. It finishes dry, bitter, and creamy.

M: Rather thick for an APA. Creamy, but good carbonation.

O: Really nice. I don't think this is an APA, way more of an IPA, but nonetheless, very nice brew. I hope they bottle this. Skal.

A- Pours mid golden with a small white head. Decent head retentiona dn some lacing left.

S- Floral aroma.

T- Sweet at first the the hops hit you like a ton of bricks (you know, for a pale ale). Clean, crisp. Yum.

M- Crisp carbonation.

D/O- Bottom line, this is the best pale ale I've ever had. Drinkability is through the roof. Three Floyds nailed it once again.

Style: American Pale Ale
Brewery: 3 Floyds
Package: Growler into pint glass
ABV: 6.2%
Gravity: Unknown
IBU: 50
Location: 3 Floyd's Brew Pub

Aroma: Big floral hop aroma and citrus

Appearance: Nice hazy golden color with a foamy white head that dissipates quickly leaving sticky lace clinging to the side of the glass

Taste: Citrus, Tangerine, great hop flavor and just the right amount of bitterness, balanced slightly with sweet malt

Mouthfeel: Medium carbonation and body

Drinkability: This brew is extremely good, at 6.2% ABV, it's not meant to be a session beer, but it is so delicious that I don't care, I'll drink the entire growler in one sitting

Notes: Zombie Dust is a single hop (Citra hops from Yakima Valley) American Pale Ale, one of my favorite styles. Rumor has it that 3 Floyds is going to start bottling Zombie Dust within the next few months, a move that I fully embrace. This brewery was already in my top 3 before; Zombie Dust makes them #1 in my book. I can't say enough about this beer... drop what you are doing, drive to Munster and get some. If they don't have it on tap when you get there, camp out until they do.

Grade: A+ (Yeah, it really is that good.)

The beer pours a slightly hazy golden color with a slight orange hue. There are two finger of white foam that recedes and leaves a small ring on the glass.

The smell is tropical citrus, Orange, Tangerine, and notes of floral sweetness. I could smell the citrus as soon as the growler was opened, very entoxicating and wonderfull.

The taste is much the same as the smell. Tropical fruit and orange, followed by bitter pine. The malt backbone is very smooth and really lets the hops do their magic. The finish is slightly dry, crisp, and very refreshing.

The mouthfeel is clean and crisp. Carbonation is spot on, just right.

Overall this is one fantastic beer. The more I drink of it, the more I love it, and I thought it was fanastic to start with.

Thanks to Wadsey for the growler.

A - Deep orange hue with a beautiful fluffy white head and very nice lacing

S - Grapefruits, oranges, citrusy and piney hop notes. Not as floral as KRBC Citra, but that's an unfair comparison.

T - citrus and pine, light body Bitter, resinous after-taste (but in a positive way).

M - medium-high carbonation. great mouth-feel. As expected from a APA, IPA

D - Let's say the growler was pretty much dusted solo. Very quaffable and refreshing. I wish it was a warmer evening in LA.

much love going out to cadaugherty for this awesome beer. 64oz growler into snifter/tulip hybrid.

Review # 600. Boo yah!

A- Nice snowdrift-white head on an orangey, glowing body. Pretty good pour here, sticky head with moderately heavy lacing.

S- Big sticky hop goodness. Nose is full of citrus fruit, sweet and inviting.

T- Citra! Oranges and tangerines. Very fruity. It's amazing how tasty these hops are.. def. one of my favorite varieties. Like biting into an orange. Malt is indistinguishable, this one's all about the hops. Not terribly complex... but I'm OK with it.

M- Spectacular carbonation, perfect balance, no off-notes, nothing out of place. Pretty damn impressive.

D- Very high... killed the growler and still wanted more. I think this beer would be better with a few more hop varieties to round out the citra, but as a single-hop beer it's pretty stunning.

I have been infected with the zombie dust and I am now craving CITRA... MMM CITRA... CCIIITRAAA....

Chilled growler into a glass. A surprise toss-in from lurchingbeast. Thanks, Frank!

A: Pours an opaque orange/marigold body. It pours with 1" of off-white foam, with excellent retention, great lace, and a good cap on the beer.

S: Orange pith, tangerine, apricot. It has a beautiful variety of citrus flesh, with very little rind / pine. The malt character is a simple biscuit note. It doesn't have as much tropical variety as Citra (kind of my gold standard for Citra-hopped beers -- and yes, I realize I'm comparing a DIPA to an APA, but dry-hop pickup should be relatively comparable, no?).

T: This is good. As mentioned above, it has no tropical citrus flavors, but rather straight 'continental' varieties, if that's a distinction that makes sense. There isn't much malt flavor, though there is some heft to the body. There's a little rind-like bitterness in the aftertaste.

M: Medium-bodied. There's a very light burn / astringency at the finish.

D: This is very drinkable, and very tasty. I think I put away most of the growler on my own. Fantastic stuff.

T: This beer is made with a single hop (citra hop). When it hits the lips so good.

M: Very fresh and light.

D: Refreshing pale ale could drink for hours on end. Light and smooth.

The appearance wasn't anything mind blowing but I loved the smell, the grapefruit, the floral aroma, oh man, I could sit with my nose deep into a glass of this for awhile. The taste reminded me of Double Trouble from Founders which is a bit random, but it's what immediately came to mind. Maybe not as complex a taste but still really strong. Great hops presence, good sweetness but not to cloying. This is extremely drinkable and the growler flew by. I hope 3F's makes this a regular, I would love to have this to drink during the summer months. Just when you start to wonder if 3F's can bring something new to the party, they drop this delightful treasure.

Growler shared by Dan with friends, poured into a Cigar City snifter

It pours a a pretty standard APA looking light orange, slightly hazy and a medium bone colored head. Minimal lace coats the side of the glass.

The hop presence is big and beautiful. Huge orange, grapefruit and pineapple fill my nose. It's just a tropical party of hop aromas, geared exactly to my preference. I am absolutely in love Citra hops and don't mind at all the surging popularity of them.

The flavor keeps almost the same hop intensity and adds just a touch of a malt sweetness at the end to counteract the hop bitterness.

The mouthfeel is pretty light making this APA very approachable and drinkable.

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.

I love growlers and side by sides and this was an awesome thing to do, served out of a growler side by side with Citra IPA from Hillfarmstead. Citra FIGHT!

Beer is hazy and dark yellow with a nice head of medium and large bubbles that leaves some lacing on the glass. Carbonation is moderate to low.

Aroma is a little weaker than I had hoped but I can totally smell the tropical fruit bomb that awaits me.

Beer is relatively light in body with a very mild sweetness lead off and an explosion of hop character in the midpalate. The finish of the beer is mildly bitter but it is a wonderfully rounded beer with so much hop flavor. It's lighter than I expected and not quite as bitter but I suppose this is an APA and not an IPA, I would have more of this anytime.

T: Fabulous taste, with a healthy dose of citrus, à la Citra hops. Extremely delicious and hop forward.

M: The feel was nice, with a decent showing of hop bitterness in the finish.

shared between myself, calton, rich, scott, zack, and cameron at gbx while stocking shelves. great company and great beer.

pour was a nice light amber with a smooth capping of white foam on the top that went over quite nicely. reached around an inch in height before setting back down and leaving great streaking on the glass. aroma was one of the best i have ever come across. tons of grapefruit, so ripe and fresh with the perfect amount of sweetness to balance it, no lie i was in heaven here. sublime flavor. rich, sweet, mouth watering bitter and juicy hops dash across the tongue and just really open up as it starts to warm. just incredibly impressed here by the entire profile. light dryness and an effortless flavor. quite simply one of the best beers i have ever had by anyone, and possibly the best pale ever.

overall the opinion was shared by all, this was better then most anything i have had in a long, long time.

A - Light colored beer with a small white head that left some pretty fine lacing behind.

S - Citra hops, there really isn't a whole lot else to say other than that. Smells pretty good though.

T - This is a citra beer, it tastes like what I just learned is citra hops. I like it but it is pretty one dimensional. Zero malt presence.

M - Crisp, light, fairly dry, leaves the mouth a little bit wanting.

D - I found this not the easiest 6.2% to drink. It's pretty good, wouldn't mind it again.

Poured from a super fresh growler into a pint glass-

Appearance- Rich gold color with a nice 2 finger head. Decent lacing.

Aroma- Pure Citra hops goodness. Loads of citrus jumping out of the glass.

Taste- Fresh hop taste. Not much malt balance here but for me that is okay when the beer is fresh. Honestly reminds me a bit of Surly Wet in this regard.

Mouthfeel- A little thin, but overall pretty avg for a APA.

Drink- I plan on finishing this growler watching the Eagles v Giants game today.

Picked up an extremely fresh growler of this at Three Floyds. Served in a Sam Adams perfect pint glass.

A - Pours with two fingers of creamy white foam that settles to a solid cap, leaving behind great intricate lacework. Transparent golden body, with a few stray bubbles.

S - Citra hops. Just pure unadulterated Citra hops - huge citrus zest, light cat pee and pine. Negligible malt character.

T - Bit citrus hop flavor, yeasty mid-palate, and a bitter finish. This is one of the few times I think a hoppy beer could use more malt character.

M - Light body, slightly gritty texture, lower carbonation. Finishes extremely dry. Was surprised to see this was 6.2% - thought it was a percent or two lower.

D - It'd be pretty easy to crush a growler of this while watching a football game, but the weak body and flavor has me reaching for Daisy Cutter instead.

Shared with me by my generous trading buddy Glazeman. Thanks a ton Scott for an awesome extra!

Poured from growler into DFH pint glass. Dark golden in color with bright off white head about a half finger thick... noticable lacing but not heavy. This beer bursts with citrus aroma including my favorites such as grapefruit and orange.. and the piney notes balance well.

At first taste the hops hit the palate fairly square. The taste is of course fantastic with tangerine, pineapple and grapefruit being the most prominent (they call them citrahops for a reason...). Again, the tastes also reveals the pine quite nicely....

Great beer here. The carbonation is perfect, and I could sit and drink way too many of these if 3F were down the street. As much as I enjoy Alpha King, I would rate this one even higher with better drinkability. The common trait they share in my opinion is that neither really drinks like an APA, but a great IPA. Well done 3F... what an impressive brewery!

poured into a pint glass from growler filled a couple hours ago

A.

A basic looking beer. A nice light orange color. Small eggshell colored head. A decent amount of lacing left in glass.

S.

Incredible citrus smell. I'm getting grapefruit, peach, mango, orange, etc. It reminds me of a combo of Gumballhead and Dreadnaught.

T.

Citrus hops, with a subtle bitterness. Like my previous example, almost like a cousin of Gumballhead. I could use a little bit more bitterness and malt in there, but still a decent tasting beer.

M.

About medium bodied but a little on the thin side. From the growler there could've been more carbonation. (Had this on tap earlier today which had a great amount of carbonation). Beer has a great finish however.

D.

Extremely high. Might be the most sessionable beer from FFF. Hopefully they have this on tap for awhile.

5 hour old growler provided by Alex...Pours a brilliant clear orange, a light white head good retention...Citra aroma, what else do you expect. Not much different than any other citra beer. Nice, just doesn't stand out from the others, but I like it...The taste is more citra hops, a little orange, and yeast, not bad but I'm not feeling this as much as the citra's Its not meaty enough to stand up to the flavors, needs a strong backbone.
