With the same grim determination and American innovation that President Jack Kennedy showed when propelling us to victory in the space race, we at Three Floyds bring you Space Station Middle Finger. Both bright and citrusy this pale ale deserves to be in orbit.

Light, sweet, mild pale ale with excellent candied-citric notes. Clean, highly-drinkable pale orange-brown brew that barely deteriorates in quality as it warms to room-temperature. Nose has a 3F-typical candied-hop complexity: sweet, sharp, and buoyant. Another great APA that demonstrates Three Floyds may be even better at that style than bigger, bolder IPA and IIPA for which they are so often lauded.

From notes on 6/18/14

Poured a dark hazy amber color. One Inch white head. Dank earthy smell. Citrus aroma. Taste is light. Little bit of caramel flavor with a bunch of bitterness on the tongue.

Thanks bstyle for this!
22 oz bottle dated 9/17/14 poured into a pint glass

A- A clear golden orange with a white finger white head.

S- Fruity, kind of reminds fruity loops, dank, some wet grass, pine, nice malt backbone.

T- Bright, crisp, citrus, some tropical fruits, slightly dank, pine, nicely balanced with the malt backbone.

M- Smooth, crisp, light to medium body, great carbonation

O- Another solid beer from FFF, very happy I was able to try this. Also love the bottle art.

Melon rind and lime zest on the nose and the flavor. More like an IPA in terms of balance and mouthfeel to me. ABV backs that up. Pretty dark blonde/amber colored, so there's plenty of malt bill there. Prickly bitterness throughout. Smooth pale ale that is very sessionable.
