I have heard a ton of hype for this one, but is it justified?

Pours out a beautiful golden orange with a 2 finger, white head.

The aroma is intense! There is a ton of an orange, orange peel type of note right away followed by grapefruit, some pine and sweeter tropical fruits.

The taste is exactly like the aroma. There is a huge amount of sweeter orange, a decent amount of grapefruit, sweeter tropical fruits like mango and apricot, some pine and just a hint of some bready malt at the end.

The body is medium and the mouthfeel is crisp. It's a very easy drinking beer with a decent amount of bitterness for an APA. This drinks more like an IPA than a Pale Ale!

I can actually see what all the hype is about and I'm glad I got to try it. No, it's not a perfect beer, but it's the best Pale Ale I have ever tried! Believe the hype. Another winner from Three Floyds.

On tap at 3F brewpub. I'm not a huge fan of the style, but this was a pretty spectacular beer. Beautiful texture, balance and taste. Not at all the hopbomb i expected, like most 3 floyds stuff. So much so, that I brought a case home with me. I'll be having a couple this weekend.

12oz bottle from Rainblows (awesome surprise package, thank you so much!). No bottling date. Served in a Dogfish Head snifter.

Pours a near translucent orange hued gold with a finger and a half of fluffy white head. The head remains for quite a while and leaves a good bit of lacing.

Smells of orange, citrus peel and piney hop goodnes.

Taste follows the nose. Plenty of bitter sweet citrus hops. Orange, grapefruit, mango, pine and a little pepper with a sweet malty cracker and faint caramel back. Good stuff.

Crisp but oily medium feel with a nice carbonated pop. Super easy to drink with those tasty citrus hops lingering in the finish.

I'm not typically a pale ale fan but I'd choose this hands down over any other pale ale I've ever tried and many IPAs too. This is a smooth, hoppy treat that is very easy to drink. A must try for sure and I will most certainly request a bottle or two from any traders that can get it for me.
