12oz bottle into a tulip.

Pours a rich copper color with a half inch white head. The smell is big on citrusy hops, wow, impressive. The taste...just blows me away. This is so complex and such a rush of flavors. piney, citrusy, sweet, bitter, malty. everything combined into one. i can't describe them all. Every sip is something new, and i find myself taking continuous sips to try and pinpoint all that my mouth is experiencing. Great feel as well, medium bodied with medium carbonation. superbly easy to drink.

Overall this is a world class beer that lives up to the hype, and may even exceed it. I've never tasted another beer quite like this one. I wish i could have it all the time.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.25

Appearance - Pours a clear golden orange with an off-white 2-finger head. Good retention leads to a solid layer of microbubbles across the top. Fair lacing all-around the glass with good stick. I don't usually count bottle artwork into the appearance score, but this bottle is too baddass not to add another half point.

Smell - Moderate orange pith aroma. Generic malt sweetness; hard to pinpoint the driving character.

Taste - Mild orange character upfront and throughout. Juicy. Malt sweetness that doesn't quite hit caramel, nor is it quite bready either; somewhere in between, or a touch of both, however you'd word it. Flavors don't overwhelm, but hit their stride at the finish with harmony and that great balance. Lingers with a very mild orange pith bitterness.

Mouthfeel - Medium in body with moderate carbonation. Silky smooth feel. Goes down with such amazing ease, it's basically chuggable.

Overall - Another well-balanced pale from 3 Floyds. This one didn't blow me away as the scores have suggested, but I found it rather enjoyable all the same. Definitely trade worthy, but don't overvalue on your end to get your hands on it.
