This was my first beer from 3 Floyds and I was quite impressed. Fantastic pale ale, great blend of hops and malts made this incredible easy to drink. This and Lizard King are my top pale ales for sure.

Got my hands on a couple fresh bottles (1/23/16), and they are to die for. Yes, pun intended. World class Pale no doubt

Finally got to try a beer I have wanted for a long time.

Def not disappointed.

Look- crystal clear with small white head. Great lacing on the glass
Smell- this is a pale ale, so I did not expect IPA aroma, but it was damn close. Perfect for style.
Taste- Smooth all around. Great lingering citrus taste. Very sessionable beer.
Feel- Creamy mouthfeel. Really goes down nice and easy.
Overall- Usually not a a big Pale Ale guy, but this one is really exceptional. Could pound 5-6 of these consecutively very easily. Worth the hype

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a deep gold color with a thin white head that fades quickly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains a very nice blend of floral hops, fruity citrus and caramelized malts.

T: The taste starts out with a nice burst of grassy hops bitterness that is quickly followed by sweet flavors of caramel and citrus. The malt character is a bit on the thin side for the style but it works quite well in this beer and provides an excellent balance. The after-taste is slightly hoppy and slightly sweet.

M: Very crisp and very smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is quite clean.

O: Very tasty, goes down extremely easily, not too filling, decent kick, very good representation of style, this is an excellent beer to drink for a long time.
