Had this on 2017-01-23 in Warrenville, IL from a 12oz bottle dated 2016-11-14

A - pretty clear gold with a 2-finger head and good lace

S - Citrus, caramel, light tropical and light dank

T - Citrus flesh and rind, biscuit, mild caramel, pine, herbal spice, pepper, moderately bitter finish.

M - Light-medium body and carbonation. Smooth at first then dry with light prickle.

O - The bottle says this is an American Session Ale but it tastes like a well made APA to me.

12oz brown bottle, sample from the brewery.

A bold yet very drinkable Pale Ale from 3 Floyds, love the clarity and dense white head on top. Smells orangey with earthy undertone, bread crust and some more fruitiness in the nose. Smooth and very crisp, moderate sized body. Refreshingly aggressive bitterness lends some pungent rind-like flavors, a bit more juicy in the finish. While it is quite bitter there is a good amount of balance. I could easily see pounding back a bunch of these.

A: pours an opaque orange, one-inch head that soon dissipates
S: initial Melba toast, juicy pineapple, lemon cake
T: tropical fruit, balanced malt backing
F: light carbonation, smooth feel
O: sessionable, but think I would find myself a bit bored after two

Pours a clear, amber-gold colour. Smells like bready-yeast, sweet, slightly fruity, marmalade sticky, and not much else. Tastes hoppier than expected, tropical fruits, marmalade, a tea-leaf bitterness that lasts throughout, and slightly sweet and fruity.

Bottled 5/21/15; drank 7/9/15 @ the Yarchives.

Poured from the bottle into a glass.

Semi-opaque bright orange appearance.

HUGE white head; strong, frothy lace.

White grape, pine & grapefruit notes in the nose.

Thin mouthfeel.

White grape & mild malted grain flavors up front; a mild grapefruit finish. Extremely easy to drink but not boring; a successful session ale.

Pours a clear, gold color. 2/3 inch head of an off-white color. Good retention and decent lacing. Smells of piney hops, hint of spicy hops, slight sweet malt, and a hint of citrus hops. Fits the style of an American Pale Ale. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. There is a noticeable bitterness, but not overpowering. Tastes of citrus hops, piney hops, slight spicy hops, hint of sweet malt, hint of alcohol, and tea. Overall, refreshing, simple, well balanced, but a little too bitter for my tastes in a session beer.
