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.
