Picked up a single from The Keg, New Albany IN. Bottled 1/17/05

A: Damn, this is a pretty beer. First thing I notice is the huge three finger head. So frothy, so inviting. Pours a copper gold. Not too dark. It's just a pretty beer. Laces the glass the whole way down as I drink it.

S: Citrus, strong melon even after almost 4 months. I think I catch a whiff of sour dough bread. Maybe I just want some sour dour bread, who knows. But this is a good smell, doesn't assault you with strong hops.

T: I am not getting the stronger bitter as some other reviews. Maybe it is because it is four months old? Blood orange, light grapefruit, melon, apricot, some light rind on the finish. Not too much resin, clean, dry. Light malt and biscuit, just the right amount. Refreshing.

F: Light carbonation. Clean finish, not very oily at all. Dry on the end. Isn't bombing out my tastebuds.

O: I was wanting to give 4.25, but then I thought as a session this really is better than that, a 4.50. Balanced yet complex with nuance, satisfying verses some of the competition. Another strong offering from FFF.

Semi-opaque gold, nice fluffy cap. Aroma is classic pale ale - wheat malt, grassy hops, a little orange rind. Taste follows suit, malt backbone is pretty dry and crisp like a German, hops are a bit citrusy (Amarillo / mosaic) with a little chalky yeast. Good session beer

Pours a slightly hazy yellow gold color with about a finger of white head. Smells of tropical fruit, citrus, and caramel, just enough aroma to be noticed but not overly strong. Tastes tart and juicy, kind of like pink grapefruit juice, moderately bitter which lasts throughout and lingers for a little while. A little note of tropical fruit towards the end. Medium body. Easy drinker, flavorful for the abv range. If it was regularly available here (I picked it up on a trip out west) I'd probably regularly pick it up as a late spring till early fall beer.

Bottled on 1/12/17

A: Pours a hazy yellow orange. Fairly light. Two finger of head with big bubbles. Head is near bleach white. Carbonation is moderate, with a few medium sized bubbles racing to the surface.

S: Slightly faded hops. Mild fruit, tropics, etc. Not much pine. Breadiness is apparent, with a touch of baking spice?

T: Tart. Some of the raw hop edge has dropped off. Floral and fruit rind. Grapefruit, mint/herb, some tropical fruitiness. Picks up a softer tone on the mid palate. Hops are muted, but not faded/oxidized. Finish picks up fruit rind/herbal notes.

M: Light. Easy drinking. Carbonation is mild in the mouth.

O: Not bad. Hop forward pale ale with good flavors. Would like to try a fresher batch.

Another solid offering by THREE FLOYDS brewery. Among their India Pale Ales it's the least notable. But still beats the crap out of most of the IPA's out there, no question about it. You should try any of their stuff if you can get it!

First 3 Floyds beer...a fresh bottle found in Ohio during a visit. Pours almost gold and a little hazy with a good sized white head that leaves spotting. Nose is not as big as I'd hoped, but very much straight up orange zest and maybe some melon. Flavor is much bigger. Really juicy with that same orange zest. Bitter for a 5.5% pale ale, but still balanced. Wish there were more beers that went all out at this ABV level. Very good.
