4.2/5 rDev -1.6%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
Appearance - The beer was a deep copper color, which left a significant amount of lacing on the sides of the glass.
Smell - Grapefruit is very apparent in the aroma. Overall, I would suggest the aroma is Earthy grapefruit.
Taste - My first impression is the beer is like a shot of straight grapefruit juice in its most sour form. There is a high level of carbonation with notes of grass, other citrus notes, and a resiny after. The citrus is so intense, I have difficulty detecting the Belgian yeast.
Mouthfeel - The thickness allows the citrus to assault the tastebuds with citrus in a manner of shock and awe.
Overall - This is a very solid effort by Three Floyds.

4.53/5 rDev +6.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5
My purposely vigorous pour gets me an inch and a half of wavy yellow bread head. Tons of sticky lace is left behind as the head recedes oh so slowly. Body is a murky amber orange. Very appropriate for the style in terms of looks.
Nose is a fragrant mix of bready sweet malts supported buy fruity and citrus surrounded hops. Really nice and well presented from a smell standpoint. Very appetizing.
The first sip brings a pillowy soft body that really hugs the palate. Such a nice balance of hops and malts are a perfect marriage of drinkability. Starts with fruit bread sweetness that is light and crisp. This is made to be not to heavy by the balance of hops. These hops dry out the sweetness and add a very well needed bitterness that hangs on through the finish of this brew.
The flavors really ride a roller coaster on the taste buds and it is a fun ride.
Mouthfeel is dry and crisp with a sweet cracker finish. This is a wonderful beer that I wish I had more easy access to. I still think this is a bit of a misunderstood style for most of the hop heads out there.
