Let’s just start this off by saying that I’ve been having a “Craving” for some Three Floyds of late. The beer angels must have heard this inner “yearning” and worked their magic vicariously through my friend Rob, who just “happened” to give me a call to let me know he just got some Dreadnaught and Gumballhead in this morning. Wow, this “think it, get it” thing works! Thank you “The Secret”!! I never doubted your teachings….
I wanted to start off with the “lighter” of the beers and since I already reviewed the Dreadnaught, I’m looking especially forward to Gumballhead. I’ve heard great things about this beer.
Now for the Beer Review!
Pours a nice golden pear color Beautiful head of white, nice stickiness to the glass. Very light carbonation.
Smell is hops up front, followed by a big citrus/tangerine. Smells like a nice juicy ipa!
The taste is on cue with the smell. Hops up front, followed by a big citrus/tangerine sweetness (short lived). Has a clean/refreshing taste to it like that of a hefeweizen, with a nice lemon zing. Very light and crisp. This would be a great summer beer which just screams “refreshing”!
I’m keeping this review short and sweet. Would I recommend “Gumballhead“? Hell yes. This beer is great. Very light but extremely well balanced: A perfect “in-between” beer. Three Floyds is one solid brewer. I have yet had a beer they put out that I have not liked. I’m considering an Indiana trip!
