5.5% ABV, 63 IBU per the website. No specs per the website or bottle. Nose of tropical fruit hops, pineapple, grapefruit, a little pine. Pours out to a cloudy medium gold, forming a nice off white head with good retention and lacing. Carbonation is moderate, ~2.5 carbs or so. Mouthfeel is soft initially, then finishing dry with a hop astringency and a medium body. Tastes like a session IPA, lots of good up front hop flavor, a little spicy which is a nice touch, a little pepper. Again, finishing dry overall due to the ho astringency. Medium firm bitterness.

A nice session IPA, worth trying.

Smell is citrus, lemongrass, a hint of grapefruit, and wheat. Taste is herbal tea-like, sweet malt, and sweet pineapple, with just a hint of a bitter finish. The description notes proprietary hops, and I did find the taste to be fairly unique among other APAs.

Served in a pint glass At local specialty burger joint. I have heard lots about this brewer and jumped on it when I saw it on tap here. Very favorable taste and body. I am on the hunt for others from this brewer.

Bottle shared by Nick, thanks man.

This one pours a dark-ish orange color, with a small head, and lots of sticky lacing.

Smells like orange and grapefruit zest, a hint of bready malt, and heavy pine. It smells pretty delectable.

The name doesn't lie- this is yummy. It's a straightforward and delicious pale ale, with zesty orange and grapefruit, and a sturdy malt backbone. It just does down super easily. Can't say much more about it.

This is lighter bodied, with a very crisp mouthfeel, and a good level of carbonation.

A no nonsense, no frills pale ale here. This is nice.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a snifter. Bottle date is smudged but I think it was 4/28/16.

A: Pours a hazy, orange color with a one inch, white, foamy head with fair retention. Small amounts of thin white lacing.

S: Mostly aromas of sweet, cracker, and biscuity malts with mild citrus hop notes.

T: Mostly flavors of grapefruit, orange rind, and citrus with a nice hoppy bitterness. Fairly good hop character for a session.

F: Light-medium bodied, smooth, somewhat crisp and slightly dry at the end of each sip.

O: Overall, a fairly good session ale. Not normally a fan of sessionable brews, but this one is pretty good with fairly decent hop character.

A - golden clear beer with white head that dissipates and doesn't leave much lacing
S - lemon, orange, grapefruit, light white pepper
T - lemon, grapefruit, citrus rind, white pepper
M - light, alcohol is covered, aftertaste is bitter grapefruit and bready malts
O - overall a half assed beer from three floyds, they were obviously going for the bud light drinkers with this one and they could have gotten them without doing something this flavorless, that said this is a good l8 f htn session beer, but I would normally drink Milwaukees Best if I really wanted a light session beer

12oz bottle, bottled on 6-6-16. Served in a tulip glass.

Appearance: Hazy (chill haze) gold with a bit of a glow to it. Thin off white head. Fine strands of persistent lacing noted.

Smell: Tropical fruit, citrus, maybe just a hint of berry and peaches.

Taste: Hoppy (mostly citrus) with some tropical fruit notes. Nicely balanced with a bready malt that has a bit of extra sweetness to it - just a bit of caramel.

Mouthfeel: Nicely thick with light carbonation. A bit sticky on the teeth.

Overall / Drinkability: A bit high in ABV for a session IPA, but quite tasty and very drinkable. Went very well with chicken, peppers, and rice, and I think this would pair well with a lot of other food as well. Yumyum indeed.

Served to me on-tap in a sort of tulip glass, this beer draws a mostly clear lifjtbtomedi copper/amber color with a bit of an orange hue. Has a white head that was about 2-4 of an inch thick when first served to me that settles to a thick ring lining the inside of the glass along with big cluster swirls of foam that cover miatvifvthe beer's surface. Excellent lacing here too. Aromas of some bready caramel malt sweetness along with floral, citrusy, piney hop notes. The taste is pretty much the same, with somewhat bready, somewhat sweet, caramel malt notes with a mild to moderate floral, piney, and citrusy hop bitterness to balance it out. Has a crisp, yet smooth, slightly prickly, medium bodied mouthfeel with moderate carbonation. Has a clean finish with a slightly dry aftertaste. Very drinkable in the food way well crafted beer ought to be.
