Got a couple of these from my friend Rudi out in Michigan.

First one poured into a Weyerbacher tulip glass. A karate kick of tropical fruit right to the nose, amazing. Orange, pineapple, And mango. The taste brings the same.. orange peel, mango, pineapple. Some spice and a little bit of a malt back bone. Tangy, sweet, slightly bitter and delicious. Three Floyds always comes correct, handled the Citra hops just perfectly with this one. Thanks Rudi.

Big thanks to Ryan for bringing some back for me. Served into a Allagash 40cl glass.

A- Pours a nice amber gold color with a foamy one finger head. Retention is good and lacing is sticky.

S- Hops , hops and more hops. Love the smell of Citra hops. Some sweet notes of malt but seems well balanced. One of the best smelling Pale ales just not very strong aroma.

T- Fresh hops with a little sweet malt backbone flavor. They really profile this hop and all it's charectoristics very well. A little heavy for a pale but I love that most!!

M- Perfect. Very drinkable with medium body and carbonation. I truly could find myself easily drinking a few or more before I became hopped out.

O- One of the best made with the best by one of the best.

Aroma is quite citrusy, with a tropical component to it as well. Very hoppy for a pale ale, it really smells a lot like a citrusy IPA would. Clearly this one is going to be aggressive, not that I'd expect less from FFF.

Taste is immediately very juicy, with grapefruit and tropical notes just exploding from the Citra hops. There isn't much of a doubt where this pale ale's hop character lies. Besides this, there's a small spicy biscuit malt that struggles to poke through near the finish. Despite how flavorful the hops are however, the interesting thing is that it isn't really a very bitter one. This shows on the finish, which is dry but with very little astringency at all. Very clean, and leaves you wanting more without any grimacing. Good stuff.

I'm definitely impressed! One of the most flavorful pale ales you'll ever have, but done in a clean and easy to drink way.

Got this in a trade from HopsMatt. Thanks!

The beer was a pale golden color. Big three finger and fluffy head and had an off-white color. The head lasted for days and left some decent sticky lacing along the glass. It deflated down in to some mounds of pillowy foam.

A nose full of citrus and tropical fruit. Orange peel, lemon grass, mango, pineapple. Some floral tones road underneath. Faint sweet malt backbone.

Tons of fruity and juicy hops, followed by some earthy and floral notes. There was a pretty consistant bitterness and a minor sweetness.

Very bubbly and medium-light bodied. Kind of oily with a mild acidity.

Another awesome beer by Three Floyds. I'll have to work out some more trades for this stuff.

A - Pours an orange hue, just off from amber. Pillowy white, 2 finger head. Great lacing.

S - Grapefruit, orange peel, bitter hops... Just tons of citrus.

T - Pine, moving into a sweet citrus followed by a somewhat bitter, crisp finish.

M - On point! Has a dry finish that leaves you wanting more.

O - The best pale ale I've ever had. It's hard not hard to brew a pale ale, but they're made a truly great pale ale.
