Skunky, gummy, and malty in the worst of levels and combination. Could not finish it.

Deep yellow in color with just a touch of haze. Poured with a moderate, bright white foam with good retention. Medium citrus and fresh grapefruit aromas with a medium malty base and light earthy notes. Medium bodied with medium light carbonation, and creamy smooth feel. Malty flavors with citrus and mellow herbal flavors with minty notes beneath. Medium light bitterness in the middle followed by minty notes and malt. Finished smoothly with tapering herbal mint flavors and light a light citrussy bitterness.  Great hop character that is well balanced by the sweet malty backbone. Pleasantly smooth feel and easy finish. Very fresh, tasty and drinkable.

Bottled 10/12/15; drank 10/28/15 @ the Yarchives.

See-through yellow appearance; champagne bubbles throughout.

HUGE bright white head; strong, frothy lace.

Lemon zest, pineapple & honey notes in the nose.

Medium thin mouthfeel.

Pineapple & honey flavors up front; lemon zest notes on the finish.

A nice, mild session ale that would suit a summer day well.

My first Three Floyds.

Poured from a bottle into a tulip glass. Slightly cloudy yellow color with a decent head and good lacing. Slightly lemony grassy smell. Very dry taste, pleasant hoppy bitterness. The beer is crisp and clean tasting. Good beer, but I think I might like Little Sumpin’ better.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a hazy golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is like a bowl of fruity pebbles. Taste is of citrus, melons, light pine and wheat. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a solid beer, and a interesting take on this style, but I was hoping for a bit more.
