Solid Pale Ale, great balance of malts and hops. Well rounded and balanced all the way. Nice balance of toast and hoppy goodness. Makes an excellent session beer!

Fantastic! Of all the three floyds pales this really stands out. Balanced, restrained, yet full and satisfying. Its a little dark for a pale, but that's where any criticism ends. bright tropical and citrus notes on the nose, sweet and sharp on the tongue. light-medium and effervescent mouth feel. its really one of the best pale ales out there.

Pours a dark copper golden yellow with a thin layer of white foam.

Grapefruit and orangey citrus dominate the nose with a subtle sweetness.

Caramel and toffee like malt sweetness, grapefruit and orange.

Light-bodied, medium carbonation, crisp, balanced.

Overall, a solid APA, wish the price tag was a bit more reasonable.
