A: Hazy orange with a slight white head. Some carbonation coming up from the bottom.

S: WOW! Sweet pineapple, mango, apricot, very intense juicy tropical fruit. A cascade of hops. Some caramel malt comes through followed by citrus, grapefruit,fresh oranges and a grilled pineapple quality. Biscuits bring the the rear in this amazing smelling beer.

T: Huge orange right at the front of the tongue. Citrus, sweet pineapple intermingle perfectly with an acidic kick. A dry pine forward finish. A nice hop bite at the end but nothing overpowering. Caramel malt is there and balanced perfectly with the endless amounts of hops.

M: A good clean and crisp mouthfeel. Medium carbonation makes this sucker easy to drink!

O: Fantastic stuff. The hops just shine and make my mouth water for more. I could easily sit and geek out and enjoy one or i could go through a whole six pack in a sitting. "Lives" up to the hype. /97

On-tap at Hopleaf in Chicago.

A: Golden color with some haze. Nice head and retention with some excellent lacing as I drink more.

S: Citra bomb. Tropical fruits exploding in the glass.

T: This is it for me. Hoppy as hell, but incredibly balanced. A superb example of a single hop beer that I would love to drink everyday

M: Light-medium bodied with nice levels of carbonation. Some stickiness from the hops.

O: This is up there for me. A damned near perfect beer.

Acquired in a via Hombrepalo, cheers!

Pour is hazy, somewhere between amber and golden. Good carbonation, but the head goes away pretty fast.

Smell is hoppy, good citrus flavors. Maybe a bit bready.

Taste is almost limey, good hop presence but not overpowering in the least bit. Great balance. Bit of bread. Crisp, dry finish.

Smooth and refreshing. Almost a bit smokey. Lingering aftertaste is great. Very well done, and I’m very glad I got to try this.

Great beer. I guess I am lucky that one of the first good beers I tried is so high on the best beers list. Fantastic beer. It is very smooth when drinking even though it has an IBU score of 60. I will always purchase when it is available, but it is hard to find even though I live in Indiana.

12 FL OZ bottle
Served in a tulip glass

A - It is a hazy orange color with gold highlights. An aggressive pour yielded several inches of orange tinged, beige head.

S - It smells like fresh grapefruit. I even detect a little malt.

T - It starts out with a mild citrus flavor with an increasing bitterness on the finish. The more I drink the more the flavor builds on my palate. Towards the end of the beer the grapefruit bitterness is very pronounced.

M - Medium with plenty of carbonation. I get some chalkiness on my tongue.

O - This is another flavorful APA from Three Floyds. I have missed this beer a couple times by one day at local bars. I have the generosity of a stranger at Brewery Vivant to thank for the opportunity to try this beer. I like this beer, but it seems overhyped. Although, it makes a great session beer. After having this beer I did crave another. Sadly, I will have to wait until August when I visit the brewpub.
