While the assertive Three Floyds brewers are happy to venture into seldom-seen styles of English, Belgian and German roots but rest assured that they will do them the "by-God" American way! ...and that means with hops.

Bright golden in its vivid sheen, heavy streams of effervescence bring out bold and perfumy aromatics that lace with white pepper, citrus, light clove, tropical fruit, estery banana, melon and papaya. Its honey-dipped taste is sweet and rounds out the tangy taste of fruit to near perfection.

Fruity and spice battle out in exquisite balance on the middle palate. With the firm backbone of honey, faint caramel and angel food cake, each give the fruit flavors an excited display. Tropical, citrus and orchard fruit have a bright and vibrant character that's met only with the earth and spice that's brought to life by expressive carbonation. And the hop bitterness gains prominence as the taste concludes to give the beer a Belgian IPA character.

As the fruit and sweetness lifts, carried away by bold effervescence, the body lightens and the hops project. Freshly torn pine needles, fragrant spruce, and softly muddled citrus peels release bitter oils and frame the character of hops in a deep and lasting afterglow
