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.

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
