This beer has a nice, burnt orange body. Slick white head. An aroma of light tangerine. A taste of tangerine and background perfume. The feel is okay.

Overall, it is a very nice APA. This would be good on a hot summer day/night.

Pours a golden hue in color with a firm white head that stays in hand for the first few sips. This is unmistakably a Three Floyds APA - has that often present blend of a smooth mouthfeel with medium body, good maltiness on the back end and a full hop flavor with tropical fruit on the nose. Excellent blend of bitterness with the fruitiness of the hops and a slight sweetness to balance. Everything goes right with this beer, and at 6% I feel it would be no stretch to enjoy a 22oz of this one too.

Looked at this beer a few times and I figured I would give it a try. I was hoping it would be as good as Permanent Funeral.

A - Nice orange color with course small white head. Light lacing.

S - Very hoppy in the nose. Full of citrus, pineapple, and lighter tropical notes that are quite pleasant.

T - Has the hops from the smell with the tropical fruits on the front. Light complimenting malt flavor but definitely hops. Mild hop bitterness definitely not the typical palate killer that Three F's usually produces.

M - Light to moderate mouth-feel. Has some bitterness and mostly clean on the finish. Mild carbonation.

Overall, a very delicious and flavorful APA from 3F's. Definitely not as strong as most Three Floyd's but great flavor and balance making this beer well worth a try. It's not going to be my go-to beer at $12 for 22 oz, but I did enjoy it quite a lot.

Poured from a bomber into a tulip

A. Pours an amber mostly transparent beer with a 1 finger head.

S. Tropical hops with a bready malt characteristics.

T. Backing up the nose tropical hop flavors with a nice malt balance. Very nice flavors and balance. Great grassy aftertaste.

M. Medium body. Nice carbonation. Finishes slightly dry.

O. Very nice beer. Not permanent funeral. But very awesome. Tastes great. Smells nice. Looks good. Good mouthfeel. Like it and will get it again.

Delicous. Never would have guessed ABV was only 6.0%. Drinks much more like a heavy-bodied IPA?

Just a fairly average pale ale. Nothing remarkably good or bad about it.
