APPEARANCE: Bright orange and crystal clear. The head is nearly perfectly white and lingers for about 30 seconds. When it falls a few wisps cover the surface while a patchy lacing clings to the back of the glass.

SMELL: I could smell this one as soon as I popped the top. Unsurprisingly, this reeks of hoppy deliciousness; pine, flowers, a touch of grass, lemon, orange, grapefruit and a little tropical fruit. Basically everything good hops might smell like are showcased here.

TASTE: Apparently there is a lot of grass on the Space Station, cause it’s all over this one. A little orange, pine and tropical fruit provide just enough sweetness to balance out all that bitter grass, grapefruit and lemon.

MOUTHFEEL: Given the complexity of this beer I expected something much more balanced, but this has just barely enough sweetness to keep it from tipping over the edge. It remains dry and almost puckeringly bitter through and through. Medium to slightly bigger in body, this drinks a lot bigger than it is.

OVERALL: Like I just said, this drinks like a much bigger beer than it actually is. I would be very happy if every 6%, hoppy beer felt and tasted like this.

This beer pours a crystal clear copper body with a thick beige creamy head that last and last. There is a full herbal unripe citrus aroma even during the pour. The taste has more spicy hop flavor with some nice big green herbal flavor and a green citrus pith finish, although it is not bitter or even pungent for the most part. There is some tropical fruit notes as it opens and a lime hop flavor in the finish. The creamy mouthfeel has a hop boosting crisp fizz. This has nice full hops that are big but not punishing. Very easy to drink many of these. delicious.

Golden orange with a nice creamy head. Wonderful hoppy smell. Extremely well balanced between the hops and the malt. Great finish. Three Floyds beers seem to have a dance between the hops and malt tastes and neither is overbearing, but work well together. Great beer!
