look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Gorgeous ruby color, clear, and a firm cap of foam. Leaves thick lacing. Head formation is maintaining throughout.

Smell is big for style...could be mistaken for an IPA. Apricot-like fruit notes as well as some doughy malt and maybe a bit of piney hop.

Taste isn't as big as aroma but certainly on par for style. Carbonation yields a full-ish feel but it finishes light enough for an APA. Finish has a nice bitterness that complements those fruity hops in the beginning. Seems like a lot of malt for pale ale, but it's not heavy, and I'm sure they're needed for all those IBUs. Seems right in between a pale and an IPA. The more I drink, the more it seems like an IPA though!

It really is a solid pale ale, and at 6% it is on the heftier end, but I'm not complaining. I'm really enjoying this and happy I have 5 more! Would love to try more from Los Tres Floyds.
