Light 5.2 ABV, borderline session beer. Citrus notes, clear ,smooth clean tasting. It has the signature Third Street flavor and taste that I enjoy. Pouring this delightful beer into a cup will give you the full delicious flavor. Out of all the the Third Steet beers I have tried, it is not going to let you down.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a Sam Adams "Perfect Pint" glass.

Appearance: Pours a somewhat hazy copper golden orange with a lot of bubbles. About two fingers of off white head with decent retention. Leaves a good amount of lacing.

Smell: A well balanced aroma of floral and citrus hops with bready caramel malts. Hoppy upfront with floral, herbal, and earthy hop hints with some grass. Light hints of piney hops. Hints of citrus orange, grapefruit, and lemon. Bready malt balance with hints of biscuit, grains, caramel, toffee, yeast, and cracker. A fairly typical and solid American Pale Ale aroma. Good balance.

Taste: Taste follows the nose, a well balanced mix of earthy and citrus hop flavors with bready malts. Hops upfront with tasting notes of earthy grass along with floral and herbal resin notes. Citrus hop notes of orange peel, grapefruit, and lemon. Bready toasted malts with notes of grains, biscuit, caramel, toffee, crackers, and yeast. Juicy and a very balanced taste. Solid for the style.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Fairly juicy, creamy, and very smooth. Finishes dry.

Overall: A solid take on the APA style. Has the balanced hop and malt presence you expect from the style.

Prying off the cap releases an earthy hop nose with traces of light fruit, biscuit and faint caramel. The beer pours hazy gold under a ½” off-white quickly dissipating foam cap that produces delicate lace. The attack starts malty, fruity and nutty. Orange and lemon flavors grow by mid-palate leading to a citrusy hop finish with a touch of herbal dryness that is almost astringent. Medium body and carbonation.

Bottled on 3/21, very fresh, picked up because price for a 6 was right and I am always looking for a APA to stand in my fridge with Moon Man and Hopalicious....

Clearish golden orange, half finger of white head...

Smell is light citrus, grainy, mango, rather lite in the aroma department, lets see where the tastes lands.

Taste is very, very balanced lemon, malts, oranges, grassy hops, a strange lager type feel with it.

Mouthfeel is medium, cabonation is average.

Grabbed a 6, will drink all of them with no problem, A nice session beer, liked it more and more as I drank. Really nice job here! Might have to grab some more of there offerings.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

doughy malt aroma with hops blended in for a balanced aroma. Seems a blend of Am. style hops with no one strong character.
Semi-cloudy darker golden/yellow with firm white cap.
Hop presence noticeable right away. Nothing overpowering or even close to excess, it's just the first impression of hop flavors and moving towards a streak of bitterness that finishes the drink off. Malt is more background, but still balanced with largely a pale malt character and little about any specialty grains (that i can pick up).
Fuller body, esp. considering only 5.2% abv. Feels bigger than that. Creamy quality too.
A more balanced drink than the most popular local APA. Bitterness, yes, but no excess or sharpness. Easy to kick back a couple with this recipe.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass

A: Deep golden, slightly hazy. Medium caronation

S: Hops; mostly citrus, a small amount of pine. A little thin on the nose but pleasant.

T: Grapefruit, some malt after a second or two. Finishes with some pine and a little bit of lingering bitterness.

M: Medium bodied, maybe a little more carbonation than some would like in an APA but since I don't mind a little fizz, it worked for me.

Overall: I've had a few better APA's but I've definitely had worse. With a 5.2 ABV and a full but not demanding flavor, this is definitely sessionable. A good example of the style and a good offering from Third Street.

Clear golden color with just over one finger of head that had decent retention before settling to a thin cap. Moderate amount of lacing is left down the glass.

Weak aroma but is pleasant with hops giving off notes of tropical fruit and citrus. Also some grainy malt.

Good flavor as well but it is not going to blow anyone away. Tropical fruit and citrus hop flavor with a nice dry malt base. Bitterness seems high for an APA but manageable. Finishes slightly bitter and dry.

Solid body and carbonation.

Pretty good drinker. Especially for a $7 six pack. I will definitely drink more of it.

From Third Street:

"Three Way is a sessionable pale ale with a deep golden hue and a flavor characterized by floral and citrus-like hops. The selection of three traditional and unique hops combined with three select malts creates a pleasing and balanced beer; described best by having a medium maltiness, a tropic hop character and a moderate fruitiness with hints of grapefruit, pear and a subtle spiciness. The result is a beer that is sure to be desired by many anytime, anywhere.

MALTS:Marris Otter, Munich and Caramel

DRY HOPS:Cascade, Calypso, Zythos"

Slightly hazed pale gold color with a short white head of foam that leaves a bit of lacing.

A very light nose overall. Hints of citrus and tropical fruit with some grainy malt, but again, very light as a whole.

Okay, now this is much better than the nose. Hops with light notes of citrus and tropical fruits, floral, grapefruit bitterness, clean and light malt presence and overall refreshing taste.

Refreshing and somewhat crisp. Light-medium body with a dry finish.

Aside from the nose, this is a terrific pale ale. The hops add a unique IPA type flavor to a pale ale. I could drink a few of these with ease. Really like this one. Thumbs up to Third Street.
