look: 4.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Look - Hazy in appearance, golden in color
Smell - Lovely aroma of citrus, herbaceous notes, grapefruit, pine
Taste - Follows the nose. Huge herbaceous notes, grapefruit, pine, citrus, dank, pithy

Overall - Been waiting for this one for a while now. Its great but I've had better. And personally don't even think it's 3 Floyds best pale ale. I'd pick Space Station Middle Finger over this any day.

Bottled 1/25/16 as fresh as it gets here in Delaware. Pine and malts in balance, wow it builds to a resinous finish and the wonderful aftertaste of rich pine.

Beautiful golden hazy appearance with about 2 fingers of white head. Smells like apricots and hops. This beer is so smooth with a great fruity flavor and a slight bitterness at the end. It coats your mouth leaving you with a juicy hop feeling. At first I thought this beer is good but over-hyped, but once you take a few more drinks you really begin to appreciate this beer and the hype becomes real!

L - Golden, hazy with a thinner than expected white head.

S - Amazingly delicious aroma. Citrus and....cotton candy. Very sweet and tropical.

T - Citrusy on the front end followed by a dry, bitter taste. The hops are the main reason for the bitterness but it felt a little over-carbed.

F - Speaking of, this beer is heavily carbed. Medium body with a lot of bubbles.

Overall - This was my first "hard to find" beer (at least in my mind). Given the hype I was disappointed. This is a very solid pale ale, with a fantastic aroma and good hop flavoring but when you're expecting a mind blowing beer...nope. Put this in a blind lineup with some other good, but not great pale ales/IPAs and I think this might blend in with the rest. Pseudo Sue is my measuring stick for top notch pale ales and this isn't in the same category. Again, a solid pale ale - but not worth the hype.
