Served in Chimay chalice.

Appearance-
Deep orange with a hint of red.

Smell-
Delightful light hop aroma, bubblegum and pine.

Taste-
A great entry, and interesting for Three Floyds. The use of the bitter hops enhance the light but present buttery malt.

Mouthfeel-
Good standard carbonation, nice and refreshing.

Overall-
Great beer, glad I tried it. Good if you are in the mood for a bitter hit, but not a full blown Stone beer.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance - Dark amber. One finger of white, spongy head leaves thin, spotty lacing. Quite alluring.

Smell - Bready with some citrus mixed in.

Taste - A little bitter, a little hoppy, a little malty, a little toasty. Traces of citrus fruit and pine linger in the background. A very attractive blend of flavors.

Mouthfeel - Medium body, med/high carbonation, clean finish.

Overall - A nice bitter ale that goes down extremely smooth. Another winner for FFF! Looking forward to having more of this. Can't go wrong with an $8 bomber of this if you like a nice bitter ale.
