A hazy gold beer with a foamy off white head that leaves lacing everywhere. Smells like oranges, flowers and pine. The taste is pleasantly sweet, floral and has a lot of orange and pine. This is a really tasty beer.

Three Floyds

I believe the tap list at the brewery had this at 7%+ abv. Broodoo pours a slightly tarnished copper. There's a small amount of chill haze with a few streams of carbonation rising to the surface. The head is impressive. Three fingers of white fluffiness appeared on the pour and ever so slowly fell a one finger at it's smallest point. Left big chunky lacing all over the glass.

Another Three Floyds creation with an incredible hop character. There is a solid dose of caramel that stays where it belongs, in the background, but hops are the showcase. Start off with pineapple and sweetened grapefruit. Then along comes subtle pine a mild grassy/earthy hoppiness. Last but not least is some sweet fruit that brings to mind strawberries.

Caramel presents itself as a solid malt base. There's also a touch of biscuity pale malts. Hops come across the palate much more grassy than the aroma. The grassiness is accompanied by a sturdy bitterness. The sweet fruitiness is still there but not near as prevelant as in the nose. Subtle pine on the swallow.

Medium body that becomes creamy as it works over the tongue. The carbonation is on the gentle side and lets this beer work at it's own pace. Great bitterness on the swallow that lingers.

This is one of those beers that's refreshing with each sip but the bitterness on the swallow leaves you wanting another drink immediatly.

Three Floyds brewers are magicians with hops. Although the flavors of this beer aren't as complex as the aroma would suggest, it is wet hopped, it's still great. The aromas they can pull off with their hop selections are amazing (and flavors as well).

A-Pours a clear amber with ruby highlights, a thin white head and decent lacing.

S-Caramel malts with an undertone of citrus and earthy hops.

T-Medium caramel malt with a light citrus hop finish.

M-Medium bodied and dry.

D-Nicely drinkable. This probably has lost some hop character but it's still a fine beer.

poured from a 22oz into imp pint glass

poured hazy yellow with a hint of amber. smell was quite hoppy with tons of citrus notes, grapfruit comes to mind. The taste was very balanced with the wet hops dominating. slight biscuit flavor from the malts. slightly carbonated and left beautiful head retention. with the lower ABV, this is one sessionable ipa. I drank this way quicker than I wanted to so I had to get some more. I wish this was available year round.

poured 22oz bottle into Teku.

A - A bright honey orange color with a 2 finger white head. Fades to a thin ring and leaves behind some lacing.

S - A pleasant tropical and hoppy aroma with some fresh sweet floral, grass like notes.

T - Tangerine, mango, kiwi, and pineapple all play into the sweet tropical hoppiness. Some floral, grass like notes with a touch of light malt and honey sweetness. A moderately bitter finish.

M - A light to medium feel with a good amount of carbonation. More slick that sticky.

O - As good as every year. If it weren't $9 a bomber I would enjoy more of it.

Received from by buddy Scott out in IL.
A-Pours a slightly hazy orange w/ a nice finger or so of head; excellent lacing and carbonation.
S-Extremely fresh, hoppy aroma w/ strong notes of sweet pineapple and underlying pine, hint of malts and floral.
T-Flavor has grapefruit, light hops and sweet crystal malts, moderate bitterness, and dry pine on the backside.
M-Medium bodied, ending slightly dry and remarkably clean.
O-Very nice! It stuck to my mouth and left a very nice aftertaste. It did finish a bit bitter then expected; a very nice IPA by the Floyds!

This beer pours a burnt cloudy orange with a one finger of off white head. Head recedes quickly but leaves nice wispy streaks of lacing. Nose is of major floral hops, some hints of grains and caramel malts underline the nose. Taste is of grassy hops up front, though somewhat muted, burnt malts fill the middle with a major floral hop burst in the finish. Medium body, medium carbonation, nice crisp feel with a slightly sticky finish. This is a great sessionable beer.

22oz bottle thanks to thebigredone. Poured into FFF pint glass. Weird label for a beer, but I don't judge a beer by it's label.

A- Pours a nice slightly brown yellowish golden with about a finger's worth of frothy white head. Nice carbonation of consistently rising small bubbles.

S- Very fresh greeny hops dominate the aroma profile mixed with some pine, floral accents, and light caramel malts lurking in the background. A little bit above average aroma strength.

T- Again greeny hops that have a little bit of a pine taste balanced nicely with light caramel/toffee malts. Finishes with a light bitterness and even more greeny hops that linger as an aftertaste for awhile.

M- Very smooth and drinkable, nice carbonation, goes down very easily.

O- This was a fantastic wet hop and one of my favorite beers from Three Floyds. This is exactly what a wet hop should taste like. Very fresh green hops like they were just picked, very nice aroma, awesome taste, and very easy to drink. If you like very fresh greeny hops then I highly recommend this beer.

Bottle from trade with Holdenn
Glowing, gorgeous multi shaded amber pour with a creamy lasting beige head, and some lacing. Smell is rich, fruity hops, a bit spicy, and sweet. Very nice big bold, spicy, biting, sharp, hop flavor and some pine and lots of green fresh character as well. Crisp carbonation and rich creamy body. Citrusy flavors and a bittersweet grapefruit flavor lingers on into the finish. Probably my new favorite fresh hop beer. Very nicely done and another awesome beer by Three Floyds. Can't thank you enough for this one, Matt!

Bright golden colored body, slightly hazy, and tons of frothy white head. The lacing is some of the best I've seen and webs the glass down to the last drop.

This has a nice bright citrus and floral hop smell. Malts are sweet. There's some pine lurking in there , too.

Very juicy and sweet. The hops are citrus and sticky resinous pine.

Mouthfeel is fresh and good carbonation. Very clean.

Lower abv and a flat out delicious brew give this bonus points in drinkability.

Well done in typical FFF fashion.

Had on tap at 3 floyds. Pours the color of apricots with flecks of golden sunshine. Had a 2 finger head that left great lacing on the glass. The fresh hops were right there in smell and taste. Exceptionally well balanced. Would drink this daily if I could.

I had this one on tap today at the FFF brewpub in Munster, IN.

A= This ale poured a slightly hazy dark orange copper color with a 1/2" tan head that quickly dropped to a thin cap. Lots of lace down my glass.

S= Truly and incredible aromatic experience. This ale was truly bursting with aromas of fresh hops, grass, pine, and citrus. That green "freshness" is hard to describe, but this beer is swimming in it.

T= Compared to the smell, quite a disappointment. There was a decent malt base underneath some solid hop bitterness, but there were some unpleasant features as well. I detected a moderately strong bitter taste that was neither pleasant nor was it normal for an IPA. I just could not find the words to describe the flavor of this bitterness, other that it was bad as opposed to good hop head bitterness.

MF= Medium bodied with a nice crisp carbonation feel.

D= I absolutely loved the aromas of this beer, so much that they practically carried the beer for me. The taste was 90% good and 10% off for me. Couldn't put my finger on quite what was wrong though. Overall, the good outweighs the bad on this one, its just not where it ought to be.
