Pours a beautiful orange hazy amber stone with sticky white head.

Smell is floral tropical fruits of papaya, guava, mango and grapefruit. Lingering pine and a sweet maltiness.

Tastes is very tropical with the malt balancing this act. A taste like no other that really transcends all others.

Mouthfeel is creamy and quenching. Tropical fruits linger.

Masterfully crafted by one of the best. Really stands alone in quality. A tremendously tremendous craft!

Pours golden orange with a nice white head. Aroma of sweet tropical and citrus fruits with bit of a sweet bready malt underbelly. A very nice sweet and juicy flavor of some tropical and citric fruits, less malt presence in the flavor than was in the aroma. A nice, medium, active body. Overall, awesome, awesome, awesome, awesome beer. Tops the list of APA's for me, wish I had consistent access to this.

Thank you, myersk27!

12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass.

A: A very golden, clear color. The head is a light tan, which pours thick and lessens to a lingering half-inch.

S: As I was pouring it the smell hit me in the face. Lemon grass, citrus, and some tropical fruit notes including some definite pineapple.

T: Lemon, grapefruit, pineapple. Pretty bitter, which forces me to sip it. Prefer it that way because I want to savor it.

M: Light, mildly carbonated.

Overall: This was well worth the hype. Had a friend ship me two bottles and he advised I drink them quick. The citrus hops are awesome and this beer really makes me wish I could just go to Indiana and taste it off tap.

12 oz. bottle into a Three Floyds pint

A- Orange lemon in appearance. Slight haze. Head lasts a long time.

S - Citrus ... all grapefruit citrus with a little malt sweetness and cut grass .to the smell. Overall, it makes the mouth water and anticipate the beer to come.

T - Starts out malt sweet, but citrus and hops rush the taste buds. All I can say about this is mmmm.

M - Juicy mouthfeel, perfect carbonation.

O - An excellent beer and example of the APA style. Three Floyds has nailed it.

12oz bottle no date marking, just awesomeness on this label.

A- pours a very slight amber golden that's almost clear but not just quite. A very light touch of tan that pours two fingers deep that lingers.

S- best smelling beer I've ever put my nose in. Big time pineapple, grapefruit, light lemon grass. It's like shoving your nose into a fresh ripe just picked hop cone.

T- Grapefruit pineapple, and grassy notes make this beer very refreshing. The bitterness is present but just flows across the mouth prefectly with the beer.

M- light/medium body with a great medium carbonation that just barely sears the taste buds leaving them aching for more.

O- This beer is just simply great, I would really like to experience another American pale ale that can battle up to the zombie dust. Prefectly balance very American flavor forward craft beer.
