This complex double India pale ale has an intense citrus and floral hop aroma balanced by a velvety malt body which has been augmented with lactose milk sugar. With this different take on an IPA we have brewed an ale that is both pleasing to drink and, once again, “not normal.” Cheers! 100 IBU 11.0%ABV (used to be 9.5%)

Last beer of the night. Big citrus, pine aroma and flavor with a nice head and lacing and tangy finish. Thanks Bill! Good stuff.

From bomber. Pours a golden color with medium head. Aromas of vanilla, pine nuts, and subtle fruit. Flavor absolutely explodes with demerara sugars, tropical fruits, and earthy. Just incredible. A+++++

fraternie (909) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 16, 2015
Very floral and creamy body, showing crisp melon and grapefruit and an underbelly of chalky mineral flavors. Not quite up to the level of the Dreadnaught or Permanent Funeral in terms of either fruit or hop balance, but well done nonetheless.

Bottle. Pours an opaque apricot color with a modest white head. Aromas of cirtus, grapefruit, a malt sweetness, slight alcohol after it warms. Taste is moderately sweet with ample fruity hops up front; a slight bitterness creeps in towards the finish. Certainly not a bitter dipa. The alcohol is undetectable in the taste. A bit sweet for my tastes; makes it come across as a bit sticky.

22 oz bottle shared at Pinsky’s, 6/26/15. It has a nice tropical hop aroma with some floral notes as well. Cloudy pour with a nice head/lace. Nice flavor as well. Fruity and hoppy. You get a nice, clean, and smooth feel, which seems to be the intended product from the lactose. Rather enjoyable.

mambossa (91) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - JUN 24, 2015
Pour from bomber to snifter. Hazy gold pour with delicate yet still nice head retention. Bright and deep citrus aroma, sharp floral with a sticky resiny pine, light boozy scent. Flavor starts off smooth and chewy-sweet with some pine, and rises to a huge floral bitter burst, lemony Amarillo coming through on the palate noticeably. Low carbonation, booze not too present in flavor. Allegedly this 2015 batch being 11% abv, hidden skillfully. Smooth, sticky, no shortage of flavor. Nice.

Brentv (486) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 22, 2015
On tap at the Pearl Street Pizzeria and Pub in Indianapolis. Yellow orange with small white head. Aroma and taste of citrus and floral hops with a significant but not overpowering malt caramel backbone.

22oz from the brewery. Huge pine nose. Cloudy yellow with some hay. Big head which dissipates somewhat quickly. Citrus on the front with no aftertaste. This is pretty amazing for an 11%. No burn. Reminds me of a fresher hopslam.

Bottle. Hazy yellow golden pour. Big floral citrus and sweetness on the nose. Sweet citrus fruit taste good bitter finish. Solid beer.

Dorkenstein (116) - - JUN 16, 2015
Aroma of fresh cut grass, grapefruit, candied orange, and booze. Taste is mineral water initially, then sweet candied oranges. Next bitter hops and alcohol. Finally, a warming sensation in the chest.

Look - Mainly orange with yellow tint. Thick, small bubbled, slightly off white head. Good lacing. The body is hazy. Smell - There is that strong dankness. Vanilla. Caramel. Pine. Pineapple. Taste - The only difference in the taste is the bitterness and alcohol. A little orange and extra citrus thrown in there too. Feel - Creamy. Milky. Small burst of carbonation but not too much. Overall - 4.5s across the board. I need this side by side with Cimmerian to see which is my favorite Floyds DIPA (so far). I really like this beer’s balance.
