Bottle purchased 8/15/17 at brewery. Poured into Teku glass.

L: 2F head with good retention, lots of lacing, and cap and ring. Beer is a clear medium amber. Quite nice.

S: Grapefruit, lime peel, Light malt. Earthiness.

T: Tends to follow nose. Light citrus, light malt, earthy finish but pretty neutral.

F: Light body, mediumish carbonation. Construction and balance are good.

O: Compatible with the better of commercial session ales.

An unremarkable pale ale from the oft-unremarkable Three Floyds. Very little aroma, some citrusy flavor and orange juice on the back... dry finish, some prickly hop bite... boring. On tap at Lone Wolf in Chicago.

Pours a hazy blonde color with a substantive head of fine, white froth. Aroma smells of honeyed, biscuity malt with grapefruit and a hint of bubblegum.

Herbal, grassy hops hit hard up front, complimented by mildly sweet, bready malt. The peppery bite of the hops lingers from front to back, while a vague fruitiness adds a touch of flair in a not-so-obvious sort of way. The mouthfeel is perfection--just the right heft and vitality, and unrelentingly so.

I'm not much for pale ales, but this is pretty good as far as those go, even if the hop content is bordering on IPA.

Bottled 5-22-2017. CBF Tulip.

A: pours a hazy golden orange with 1 finger of frothy just off-white head. Tons of visible carb. Retains a pretty solid cap, and the lacing is worthy of extended letters home. A ring for every sip!

S: sweet tropical, citrus, hints of pine.

T: my, that is hoppy. On a reduced beer diet lately, and this is a treat. Arrives crisp and refreshing, some dry malt across the middle with a touch of citrus sweetness, then a big grapefruit rind finish rounding things out. Not very sweet on the palate, in contrast to the nose.

M: medium bodied, frothy texture with what seems like moderately low carbonation.

O: this bottle has been sitting around a while, so it may be lacking a little of the punch I recall, but this is certainly an above average hoppy APA with a solid malt body to back it up. Really bitey, but not overwhelming. An IPA on xanax? At 5.5%, this could be a regular drinker.

On tap at the brewpub. Clear golden. Smells of surprisingly sweet malt. Candy hop aroma that makes me think Azacca. Tastes of that same Jolly rancher sweet fruitiness. A little bit of caramel malt. Slight bitterness. Medium body. Seems a hefty pale ale and not what I expected based on the description.
