This is a beer I have had regular access to for years, but always passed at $10 @ 22oz. It's in 12 oz bottles now.
3 Floyds Space Station Middle Finger 6% 50 IBU pale ale bottled 2/14/17. Yellow/gold in color with little head but great lacing. Smells good with a vague fruit aroma. Tastes great. 3 Floyds always gets the malt & hop package right on their pales. Perfect balance. Citrus rind, earthy flavors, and tropical fruit all come out in this. Mouthfeel is full but not sweet. Overall, this is an outstanding pale and in a much more economical package to buy or trade. Recommend

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a Three Floyds pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a bright and clear amber orange. Moderate amount of bubbles and about a finger of off white head which settles into a thin creamy patch.

Smell: A juicy and earthy aroma with a scent of citrus fruit and pine. Upfront citrus hop scent of orange, grapefruit, papaya, passion fruit, lemon, and mango with some pineapple. Earthy hop hints of pine and grass. Also some hints of tea. Malt hints of caramel, grains, and cracker with yeast. A very good juicy aroma.

Taste: Like it smells, a juicy and earthy hop driven taste with notes of citrus fruit and pine. Juicy citrus hop notes of orange, grapefruit, mango, passion fruit, papaya, and lemon with pineapple. Earthy hop notes of pine and grass. Background malt notes of caramel, grains, and cracker along with yeast. Also some light notes of tea. A very nice taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Juicy, crisp, and very smooth.

Overall: A very good Pale Ale. Nice citrus hop flavor with a moderate smooth body.
