Great beer!

But it is not an American Pale Ale. Too hoppy for style classification. Disqualified.

Really, people. Pay attention to style. Styles have meanings and characteristics for the purpose of judging. Three floyds calls this an APA when it is an IPA based on the IBU and other criteria. Judging this to be a 100 in the world of American Pale Ales is like saying the best type of apple in the world is a banana. If you don't pay attention to style parameters you shouldn't be judging any beers at all, because otherwise all we're doing here is telling the world what your OPINION is of a specific beer, and frankly, I don't care about your opinion if you can't even compare a beer against its supposed style guidelines.

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
