4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours slightly hazy gold with some head and decent retention. Aroma is the DANKEST IPA I’ve every laid nose to. Pine, cedar, cheesy hop cones, some mango and honey but mostly smells like some medicinal chronic. Taste piney parmesean cheese, some grapefruit and tangerine, big cedar finish. Body is medium, creamy/dense, low carbonation, super long complex bitter cheesy hop finish, surprisingly balanced though. Overall, easily the best double IPA from the Floyds and certainly the best being brewed in the Midwest right now!

Decent. Poured in a 10oz. glass at the brewery. Strong, but not overpowering as I expected. Pretty nice, nothing too special.

On tap at DLD 2014. Pour is hazy orange with a medium white head. Aroma and flavor of mango, orange, pineapple, bready dough, and caramel malt. Body and finish is heavy on the honey with some added hop bitterness.

Aroma of Citra. Or is it Amarillo? Either way a nice hoppy aroma over sweet malt. Well balanced brew which hides the alcohol well.

Draft at brewery - flowery nose. Sip ruined it. Whatever are the main hops in here, I don’t like it. Bitter.

Aroma is a sweet grassy straw and citrus. Apearance is a clear golden honey. Taste is smooth sweet and citrus goodness. Palate is just the right viscosity. Overall fantastic.

Putting down some old ratings of stuff that appears gone, On tap taphouse grill 3/29/12. Very hoppy IPA, Lots of pine, with some citrius. Signature 3 floyds hoppiness. Very close to dreadnaught.

Had on tap at Three Floyds during our Zombie Dust excursion. Served in a penta glass.
A: Pours a perfect amber body with solid golden edges. A half finger, pillowy white head forms on the pour and has some nice retention. As it recedes a thick collar and thin film it leaves nice cascades of lace down the glass.
S: I first get some dank and resinous hops and then it slowly molds to a tropical fruit and light pine needle. There is some sweet bread malts in for good measure.
T: The taste is even danker than the nose. Nice combination of pine and dank weed. Mild tropical fruits burst up in the middle and the finish is a semi-bitter pine needle and lemon grass. There is a malty caramel backbone throughout.
M: Medium bodied with a slight sticky mouthfeel. Solid carbonation and it goes down very smooth.
O: There are a ton of different hop variations and they each play a wonderful part. While this wasn’t a bitter bomb, it certainly attacked the palate. Well done.
Serving type: on-tap
