Very nice pale ale. I had one at the local Tap House Grill last night. The beer is pretty much a showcase platform for Citra hops, but there's nothing wrong with that! Where may I ask did you get a sixer? I live about 40 minutes from 3F brewery in Illinois and the only sixers we can get around here are Alpha King, Pride & Joy, Robert The Bruce, and occasionally Gumballhead pops up. I've only had this on tap a couple of times, never in a bottle.

DonnieZ - I got a case from my Bro-in law, he's just getting into brewing and my inlaws live in the same town as 3 Floyds. He got two cases at the brewery/brewpub last weekend. They were selling them in cases...apparently it was a made house. I believe they are going to be making it a staple soon so it hopefully will be on the shelfs next to the other 3F brews.

Xsists - I would appreciate it if you could PM or share the recipe for the clone you made. I'd be interested to see it and try to make it. Did you do all grain or extract/PM?

If you do a search on here or on just bing/goggle for the recipe there are a bunch out there and you better get alot of Citra hops...I'm buying a few pounds now. =)

Yeah, the artwork is nice. Apparently its by a Marvel comic artist. The story I heard was he was in the brewpub one day and started sketching up a few things and the bartender let the boss man now and then it was all history. Much different then the other 3F labels.
