Had on tap @ DLD 2013 (early enough in the day to remeber).

A: Gold to copper clear with a finger and a half of white head that laced my plastic cup throughout the life span of the pour.

S: Dank, pungeant, reasony weed... Also notes of citrus and passion fruit in there. A great example of Galaxy hops.

T: Big citrus/grapefruit with notes of passion fruit/mango. Not overly bitter and balanced with an slight underlying breadiness from the malt.

M: Light to moderate mouthfeel with a medium level of carbonation.

O: An excellent example of the american IPA. If i remember correctly this was sngle hopped with galaxy (I could be wrong). Think Zombie Dust with Galaxy hops. I hope they brew this one again!

Poured into an imperial pint from the tap at the Three Floyd's brewpub.

What a wonderful surprise from FFF I stumbled upon on a whim with a buddy for lunch. Saw it on the menu and hadn't heard of it so thought I'd give it a try.

Pours a yellow amber with an inch of white head. Good bit of lacing on the glass.

Smells absolutely DELICIOUS. Orange, lemon, tropical mango, pineapple and an interesting tartness in the nose. I could sit and smell this beer all day.

Taste is incredible as well. Follows the nose almost perfectly with just a touch of malt to keep it grounded. The tartness melds with the bitterness from the hops really well. Not too bitter at all. Finishes with tartness and fruitiness inviting you to take another sip.

Mouthfeel is moderate carbonation and a medium body. Extremely satisfying going down.

An absolutely amazing to drink. Sits right there with Zombie Dust maybe even better honestly. Wish I could have taken a growler (or two or three...) If you're a Three Floyd's fan and you live near the pub do yourself a favor and make a trip to try this beer. Hopefully this'll become a regular production beer.

Wow.

This is on tap-- not listed on the menu yet, so I filled out the abv based on bartender's guess. (Alex-- please fix if he was wrong!)

Bright clear deep golden body with a shiny white head. Intense lacing and retention.

Smells of little malt-- the hops dominate. And what a glorious domination it is; tangerines, nectarines, and apricots. Bright and fresh, juicy and citrusy. The flavor adds a little bit of maltiness with a touch of sweetness that is just enogh to make me say "candied apricots." The citrusy fruit character is perfect, delicious, and highly appreciated.
The finish is dry and bitter.

No booziness. Medium bodied beer with just the right amount of carbonation.
This is as good as Zombie Dust. No doubt. This has all the characteristics of a perfect pale ale.

Let's all push hard to force FFF to make it year round bottle this one!
