Great Session Ale for hop lovers. Doesn't taste or feel the same as it smells because If it did the ABV would need to be 8 plus. Overall it nails the session apa classification. Looking forward to lots of these next summer.

Poured smoothly into a clear pint glass. Has a dark, hazy opaque golden appearance. Moderate carbonation and head dissipates quickly.

The smell obviously gives off grapefruit, along with orange and lime peels, other citrus aromas.

Tastes very piney and earthy, has herbal elements to it. Light hints of grapefruit, orange juice, and a biscuit malt. Also a peppery sort of hops. Grapefruit aftertaste. Oddly it all tastes quite light on the mouth but tastes like nothing when it's swallowed. Does feel smooth and rich going down however.

Overall it's a light assortment of things despite the smell.

$ 14.43 (Including tax)/six pack of 12 ozers ($ 0.200/oz) at Chalet Party Shoppe, Middlebury, IN.
Bottled 8-21-17. In reefer at shop, stored at 42 degrees in my reefer. Served at 42 degrees in a hand washed and dried Jester King snifter.
Aroma – Citrus with a splash of pine, fades.
Head – Large (Maximum 5.7 cm, aggressive pour), off white, medium density froth, average retention, diminishing to two mm ring and a heaped partial layer. Head retraction leaves thin partial rings of tiny bubbles.
Lacing – Fair. Partial rings which resemble the writing on the label.
Body – Medium yellow, hazy.
Flavor – Actually, not much. It’s cold and wet and maybe a bit bitter. Well balanced nothingness. If you really concentrate, then the malt and hops can be detected. No alcohol, no diacetyl. Allowing it to warm in my mouth only makes it warmer and produces a chalky finish, absent in the cold swallows.
Palate – light, watery, lively carbonation.
Impression: Flavor is a let-down after the promise of the nose. Even a little diacetyl would have been welcomed to establish a flavor profile. You could certainly drink several of these since there is nothing in the flavor profile to offend.

Appearance 3.75, Aroma 4, Flavor 3.5, Palate 4, Overall 3.5.

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.
