On tap at Three Floyds over Christmas. Reviewed from notes.

Pours a moderately-dark golden color with a hefty white head and good lacing on the way down. The nose carries loads of tropical fruits, apricots, and citrus. Fantastic mixture of hop fruits going on here. The flavor keeps it going. Great blend with just a touch of malt in the background. Light body with good carbonation and a nice hop bitterness and dryness. Super easy-drinking and fantastically-sessionable. FFF really nails the APA category. Awesome.

On tap at the FFF brewpub.
Served in an imperial nonic.

Little darker than I would have expected, but a nice coppery orange. Clear body, nice bright white head. Great thick rings of lacing. Decent retention.
Smells piney. Really piney. Dry bready/biscuit malt with a piney hop note leading the charge. Light citrusy notes hiding inthere too. Dry, bitter finish with a lingering oily resin vibe.

Medium body, a hair over-carbonated, but I'll forgive it this once.

Overall-- a good beer. Pale Ale is my favorite style, so I tend to rate them pretty tough-- this one is good, but no where near a Zombie Dust replacement!

A: Light orange in the light. Gorgeous full-bodied head. I'm kind of excited.

S: citra hoppy goodness, and a whole lotta sweet backing it up. Never experienced this before.

T: really interesting. Starts out with a kiss of hops, ends with a load of sweet malts, & citrus tones throughout. Its not very strong in any particular sense, just soft enough for a great session beer.

M: no complaints here. Same good stuff FfF always puts out. Just enough carbonation, and the taste lingers just enough to entice you for morel

O: ya know what, I think this is one of the better beers I've had to eat with food. A fantastic session beer, and will probably order one with food every time - at least a half pint.

On tap at Three Floyds Brewpub, served in a nonic pint.

Pour: Clear golden body with a finger and a half of white head. Leaves a really nice lacing.

Smell: Huge burst of citrus (oranges, grapefruits). A light biscuit in the background. This beer is all about the hops on the nose. Very inviting.

Taste: Oranges and grapefruit abound, just as the nose. A light peppercorn mixes in with a light honey sweetness. I honestly get a tinge of mint on the finish.

Mouthfeel: Okay... so I've claimed Gumballhead as the most drinkable beer of all time. I was wrong. THIS is the most drinkable beer of all time. Light, but substantial in taste. Wow.

Overall: If this were bottled, I would get this all the time, every time. I really, really enjoyed this beer.

On tap at the brewpub.

Pours a clear golden fluid with white lacing. Decent retention keeps a thin ring atop the beer.
The smell is quite awesome. Powerful pungent hops with notes of grapefruit peel, apricot, and a cannabis floral nature.
The beer is super drinkable with a smooth malty backbone accompanying a resiny hop flavor over the top. Lovely stuff!
The beer is as smooth as 'the Fonz', seriously. No burs, just straight balance with little bitterness and low carbonation.
Overall this is a great pale ale. Very interesting.
