16oz draft pour into a pint glass shows a dark/dirty orangish, almost amber, colored body and floats a 1/4in medium sized bubbles of head and leaves lacing that begins smaller and begins extending into longer soapy strands as the glass empties.
Aroma is fresh malty goodness that is almost floral. It's similar to the freshness of bedsheets allowed to dry outside on the line.
Flavor is similar but takes that classic Three Floyd's bitter hop turn to close.
Mouthfeel is medium and clean.
Overall a very well done APA, despite the name.

On tap at the brewpub. Clear deep orange. Smells of very bright tangerine hops. Tastes of tangerine also. Very bright citrus. Biscuit malt. Aggressive bitterness cuts a little bit of sweetness. Medium light. Very good.

Pours a cloudy maize color. 2/3 inch head of an off-white color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of floral hops, slight citrus hops, spicy hops, alcohol, sweet malt, and a hint of grass. Fits the style of an American Pale Ale. Mouth feel is smooth and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of floral hops, slight citrus hops, spicy hops, alcohol, sweet malt, slight yeast, and a hint of grass. Overall, good appearance, aroma, blend, body, and complexity.
