Three Floyds Gumballhead
Three Floyds Gumballhead is an American Pale Wheat Ale. I am used to my palate being assaulted by HUGE flavor so it took a few sips for me to taste what makes this so loved. Brewed with red wheat and a ton of Amarillo hops this has lots of grapefruit, lemon zest, and some mild tropical fruit flavors. A bit of cracker malt is there in the background giving this a hint of “wheat ale”. The grapefruit returns on the finish along with a bit of bitterness tingle. This is really an outstanding session ale for you hop heads out there, so much flavor for a 4.5% ABV beer. Much like Lagunitas A Little Sumpin’ Sumpin’ Ale this is all about re-defining what a wheat beer can be.
