received in a trade from tpd975 and poured from a bottle into my samuel adams glass...

great copper color with a thin fluffy white head...smelled of floral hops, slightly piney...great mouthfeel, slightly oily with perfect carbonation...taste was great as well, with the underlying floral hop taste with a slight bite at the end...wonderful beer

From 6/2/10 notes. Had at a Three Floyds tasting at the Brickskeller in DC.

a - Pours a reddish amber color with one inch white head and light carbonation

s - Smells of citrus hops, grapefruit, pale bready malts, and some piney hops.

t - Tastes citrus hops, and smooth bready malts. Little bit of bitterness but not too much.

m - Medium body and low carbonation.

d - A good pale ale and another strong beer from FFF. Would try again.
