Although the wack jobs at Three Floyds don't come out and say it, what we have here is a bona fide wheat IPA. It pours pale and cloudy like any true bottle-conditioned wheat brew should, with a decent head. Now imagine this: a whiff—just a whiff, mind you—of the sweet cloves you'd expect from an American wheat, followed by a torrent of hop aroma. The sippin' is the same: light, refreshing, with a hint of fruitiness, followed by enough bittering hops to smack your ass and call you Sally. Plus the bottle sports a cig-smoking, bad-ass cat, the titular hero of the Gumballhead the Cat comic series. Here's to hoping that the gang at Three Floyds keeps oversampling their own wares.

Beer Dorks News

Want to know how healthy the craft beer industry is? As always, look to Portland. Craft pioneer Bridgeport announces sudden closure, adding to a growing list of PDX casualties.
Did Anheuser-Busch Chicago offer their shit beer to Cody Parkey before his missed field goal? Because that may explain why he "accidentally" biffed it.
Chicago now has the most breweries of any city in the country. Other things Chicago has the most of: murders, mobsters, and Ditkas.
Trying to spin it positive, BA releases end of year graphic. Only 5% growth in the craft sector when nearly 1000 new breweries opened? That's a collapse waiting to happen.
R.I.P. Tallgrass... another casualty as the regional/national craft beer market continues to get squeezed.
Wait... Constellation Brands cut all of the Ballast Point and Funky Buddha sales staff? They merged it with their Corona/Modelo staff?? We're SHOCKED!!!
Pizza Beer founder crying about failure of company, blames everyone else. Reminder, the beer tasted like vomit. Try having better ideas or making better products so you're not a failure.
It's Bud Light so doesn't really matter, but we expect this beer to be sitting around for awhile.
Indiana brewery to open with controversial beer names to "get the conversation going". Translation: taking advantage of serious issues for free publicity.
Hundreds of amazing beers in Wisconsin and the Cubs took back the one everyone drinks just because it exists and people have heard of it. How fitting...
