On-tap at Three Floyds. Served in an imperial pint glass.

A - A finger of white foam settles to a thin cap and thick collar, leaving behind splotchy fingers of lace. Transparent golden body.

S - Smells like a blend of Amarillo and Nelson Sauvin hops? Definite citrus character, verging on the lemony side of things with some light tropical tangerine notes too. Plenty of grassy flavors, but slightly earthy as well. Malt character is fairly minimal, with some light honey and crackery malt presence.

T - The taste is a bit more mild in flavor. The malt character has more bread and less sweetness, and the hops flavors are a little less intense but instead yield more bitterness. Finish is extremely clean - almost lager-esque.

M - Medium-light body, pleasant active carbonation, a dry finish, and plenty of lingering resinous hop oils. Pretty much what you'd expect from a pale ale.

D - A highly enjoyable and 'crushable' pale ale from 3 Floyds. It lacks the flavor depth and punch of something like Zombie Dust, but otherwise it's a great beer for multiple pints...or growlers if they would actually do fills of this beer. This seems like it would be a fantastic summer seasonal.
