Smallish white head quickly settles to a 1/4" froth above a clear honey golden colored beer.

Light citrus light aroma that leans slightly towards sour lemons, but really not much aroma at all.

Light citrus taste, the lemon seems to be gone that was in the aroma, with what I think is a slight maltiness coming through as well.

A very light dryishness to the aftertaste of this medium bodied beer.

This pale ale is on the lighter side but it's still a pretty decent beer to be drinking during Sunday football.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

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.

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 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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Mildly hazy yellow-gold, ok head.

Smell: Mild citrus aroma.

Taste: Cracker-like breadiness into moderate lemony citrus. Finishes quite dry.

Feel: Lighter feel, dry finish makes me want another drink.

Overall: This is a pretty solid pale ale. It stands out somewhat with the lemony citrus and dryness, which remind me more of a wheat beer than a pale ale. A decent choice in a sea of pale ales.
