A American Pale Ale with slight caramel sweetness balanced by aggressive citrus Hoppiness, this is the kind of beer you find yourself not Able to put down because the flavors become more complex as you drink the beer! My first beer from 3 floyds, and I can always tell I will now be apart of their cult following!
