I live in MA and had this mailed to me. So $42 for a six pack.... I love a good pale ale. This was fantastic to me. Nothing crazy going on, just a really nice solid beer. Great nose to it. If this was closer to me, it would be my "go-to"

Expected more. Didn't blow me off my feet like a top 50 beer should. Very generic taste and mouth feel. Other Half superior IPAs to this. Probably getting by on its reputation at this point

Overall good beer. Not worth the hype in my opinion. Personally I think Alpha King is better...and easier to find. Super cool, bottle decal

It's a pale ale. There's not much more that can be said beyond that. Totally drinkable, but nothing special, if I'm honest. One might be better served by a proper IPA like Stone's or, if you're in the Midwest, a Two-Hearted.

Copper colored with moderate haziness and a fingernail of off white resting on top. Heavy lacing. Aroma is a blend of citrus hops and cracker like light malt. I taste plenty of light malt upfront and the citrus hops in the back of the palate. This is a very balanced and flavorful pale ale. The mouth provides a gentle but deep hop burn.

Very hoppy for a Pale Ale but so smooth. Best beer from 3 Floyd's and best Pale Ale I've ever tasted. They can't keep this stuff in the bar or liquor store for more than a day or two. I buy it straight from the brewery about 60 Miles from my house.

The beer had a good thick head and was golden and cloudy. The beer smelled citrusy and lemony. The taste was of hoppy grapefruit. The feel of the beer was refreshing and it lingers as you drink it. Overall this beer is phenomenal!
