Bottled on 6/30/16 so 3 weeks old (awesome). Beautiful cloudy orange and well carbonated and 2 finger head. Nice floral hop aroma and sweet bready malts. Taste is similar. Nice floral and bready combination. Finishes a little metallic on the tongue which is a little bit of a ding on taste rating. Nice full bodied mouthfeel. Overall this a very nicely made pale ale. Not a hop bomb, but sweet, hoppy, bready and refreshing all dialed in well and solid for the style.

Bought a six pack from a local store in Indiana and drank them from the bottles. Great taste almost like an IPA but not as bitter. Smooth all the way from beginning to end. Definitely a keeper.

YumYum brewed by 3 Floyds Brewing Co., with an ABV of 5.50% This American Pale Ale pours out a nice deep amber color with a nice full white head. The smell of YumYum is rich with hops bitterness grains and malts. There is also a nice sweetness to the smell of this brew. The look and smell of this brew is really inviting, noting bad so far. Now for the taste it is bold with flavors. You pick up a nice amount of hop bitterness with a nice sweet smoothness at the end. There is also some nice notes of grains and malts in the taste of this brew. This one of the better American Pale Ale's I have had. I can't get over how smooth this brew is. YumYum has a nice nice balance to it, there is overpowering about this brew. The mouthfeel of YumYum is Bold, Rich, Clean, Smooth and refreshing. Overall I'm giving YumYum Brewed 3 Floyds Brewing Co., a 4.25 out of 5. I would buy this brew again. 3 Floyds Brewing Co., did a real nice job with this one.

YumYum | 3 Floyds Brewing Co. Poured from the bottle into a pint glass, this beer's head is three fingers thick and just slightly off-white, with sheen lacing, and a clear medium golden amber body.

Smells like very frickin juicy West Coast style of hops, with even juicier "tropical" citrus and melon all working together to make a very awesome session ale.

I taste a very masterfully balanced blend of a biscuity, buttery malt base accented by (again) those oh-so juicy hops of citrus, mango, pineapple, papaya, etc with a not-too-bitter pine note at the end to finish with a zing.

The mouthfeel is medium-light with mild carbonation. Clean and quenching.

Overall, I'll give YumYum | 3 Floyds Brewing Co. a rating of 4.5. I'm reviewing this jjjuuust under a month of the bottling date & can only imagine the splendor and glory that a super-fresh pint could behold. This also has some phenomenal gateway potential IMO.

Interesting beer. Sits in the middle of juicy and sprucy. A slightly floral nose and a gentle bitterness make it very interesting. All in all, a very pleasant beer.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 4/4/2016. Pours hazy golden orange color with a 2 finger dense and rocky off white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Dense soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, mango, melon, lemon/orange peel, light pine, cracker, biscuit, light honey, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus/tropical hops and moderate bready malt notes; with solid strength. Taste of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, mango, melon, lemon/orange peel, pine, cracker, biscuit, light honey, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Moderate pine/citrus rind/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, mango, melon, lemon/orange rind, pine, biscuit, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/tropical/pine hops and moderate bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance with minimal lingering hop astringency after the finish. Light-moderate dryness from bitterness, that increases through the glass. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately sticky/resinous, and grainy/creamy balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Zero alcohol warming as expected of 5.5%. Overall this is a very nice American pale ale. All around nice complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/tropical/pine hops and moderate bready malt flavors; very smooth and easy to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

Buddy was in IN trying - unsuccessfully - to pick up some Zombie Dust. When I got his text that ZD was not to be found I suggested he look for some other 3 Floyds brews and he found some Yum Yum. While not on ZD's level it is a tasty brew. Pours a golden color and very smooth and drinkable. Nothing overly special about but enjoyable. Could def drink a few of these in an afternoon. Cheers

Bottled 4/28/16

Look: medium golden hue with a thin white head & faint lacing
Smell: very mild scent; pine, lemon, hops
Taste: juicy lemon & grapefruit, hops, pine
Feel: medium light body, medium carbonation

Overall: very good pale ale. Not as good as other Three Floyd's beers I've had, but still solid. Wouldn't mind getting this again.

Less bitter than Zombie Dust and Alpha King. With less alcohol and IBUs than those two other 3 Floyds' APAs , the flavors standout more.

I had it on tap at Local Option and found it to be one of my favorites by 3 Floyds.

Very tasty.

12 oz

Pours mostly clear wheat gold, quarter inch of eggshell head is firm and retains very well.

Smells of bready malts, citrus, chamomile and fresh floral hops.

Flavor is of buttered bread malts, chamomile, lemongrass, barley, and herbal tea hops.

Medium to full body, tingly carbonation on the tongue.

Pretty tasty ale, flavorful but mild and drinkable. Good in warm weather, good session candidate. Definitely worth trying.

Hazy amber color with a large head that slowly settled to a finger cap. Heavy lacing is left down the glass. Aroma of citrus and some floral notes. Pretty much tastes like hop water. Astringent with harsh bitterness. Nothing else to try and balance out the hop. One of the more poor attempts at the "session" IPA. Notes of dank citrus and tropical fruit. Light body and appropriately carbonated.

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

Appearance: Arrives with the amber liquid covered by a reasonably impressive head; strands of lacing linger

Smell: Tropical fruit, citrus and a hint of caramel malt

Taste: A hint of caramel to provide some balance and then the juicy tropical flavors arrive, bringing mango, pineapple and kiwi with some grapefruit and passion fruit adding some bite; hints of herbal elements, after the swallow followed by a juicy finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: A really nice APA from 3 Floyds, bringing on the modern style of juicy, tropical flavors

Draft: Poured pale golden color ale with a nice large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of citrusy and bitter hops with light cereal notes is pleasant. Taste is also a mix of light cereal notes with some citrusy and bitter hops notes with a solid malt backbone with a dry finish with light bitter notes. Body is about average with good carbonation. Interesting and refreshing but doesn’t stand out from standard APA as much as I was expecting.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.75

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a chalice.

Appearance: Pours a hazy golden orange with a moderate amount of bubbles. Solid finger of white head that settles into a thin creamy layer.

Smell: A very juicy hop forward aroma with a scent of citrus fruit and pine. Big upfront presence of citrus hops with a scent of grapefruit, mango, orange peel, lemon, melon, and pineapple. Also some hop hints of pine and grass. Malt hints of caramel, grains, and cracker with some yeast. A very solid aroma.

Taste: Like it smells, a really juicy hop driven taste with notes of citrus fruit and pine. Upfront juicy citrus hop notes of mango, grapefruit, orange peel, melon, lemon, and pineapple. Earthy hop notes of pine and grass. Background pale malt notes of caramel, grains, and cracker along with yeast. A very good juicy taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Juicy and fairly oily with drying finish.

Overall: A very good Pale Ale. Great tropical fruit hop flavor for a "session" beer.

One of the easier beers to find by 3 Floyds. Pours a Citrus or orange color. Lacing is thick from bottle. Taste of mild citrus, lemon, and hops. Overall an excellent beer.

From a 12-ounce bottle into a pint glass. Cloudy orange color with no visible sediment. Thick white clumpy head great retention and lacing. Hop forward citrus nose. On the palate hops present but well-balanced. Very drinkable. Would have another.

12 FL OZ bottle
Served in a 3 Floyds teku glass

This beer pours amber in color with golden highlights and has a slightly hazy appearance. It is topped with three inches of beige head that leaves some nice lacing.

I get notes of melon, grapefruit, and lemon zest.

The taste starts out fruity with citrus. Through the middle and in the finish I get bitter grapefruit and pine.

Medium mouthfeel

I tried this beer on tap and did not like it at all. I decided to give it another try. It is a flavorful pale ale. I like it better than my previous experience but will probably not be trying it again in the future.

First had Yum Yum at Finch's Brasserie, Bloomington, Indiana, on draft into pint tumbler. The brewery's categorizing this beer as an American Session Ale is a bit disappointingly opportunistic (and misleading), but the beer is not. 3 Floyds is second to none in producing American Pale Ales.

3 Floyds Brewing Co. - YumYum. 5.5% ABV. 12oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Bottled on 2/16/16.

Look: Settled an attractive translucent gold in the glass with an impressive three finger head that leaves sticky lacing as it dissipates.

Smell: Dank, bitter hops and some other citrus and tropical fruits.

Feel: very light bodied and smooth with some carbonation.

Taste: Bitter hop bite up front, and remains bitter throughout, backing some grapefruit, mango, and other citrus and tropical fruits.

Overall: I've definitely had more IPAs than APAs, and generally like them better, however some like this one stand out. Light bodied, smooth, and a crisp finish make this very sessionable.

Good beer!
Light, perfect summer brew! Something weird(not bad)about it though, the aftertaste I get iced tea and lemon like an Arnold Palmer! It's a good flavor makes me keep drinking it just for that!

I know! Fucked up, right?

Maybe it can be chalked up to the fact that I don't have a honed palate just yet?

Stupid name !!

Pours a light yellow, looks like a pale, barely toasted pale malts giving it the color, soft tiny bubbled white head.

Definitely a tropical fruit hop vibe, all those mango and pineapple. Super light malt bill allows the hops to shine. Unbalanced and better for it. There's some tangerine flavors as well, 50~ibu feels so good here, barely bitter, too much lush fruit kind of hop flavors to let bitterness weigh it down.

This is like a Zombie Dust with less amarillo I'd say, but less malt as well. A truer pale ale.
