COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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%)

Nice hazy orange body with a thick last white head. Wonderful fruity citrus aroma. Taste is lots of citrus, some earthy pine notes. Very velvety mouth feel. Awesome beer.

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.

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 (476) - 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.

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.

Fad. Orange let diset øl med et stort skumhoved. Ekstrem sød duft med en tand lidt gammel humle. Smagen er meget sød, også for sød, men den er stadig drikbar. Ikke oppe at ringe.

UPDATED: JAN 11, 2015 På Fat. Svag doft troligen då Mikkeler glasen de små som serveras till denna öl utvecklar inte doften. Smakar fruktigt krämigt komplext. Tydliga inslag av apelsin å äpple. Riktig god Men hade nog blivit betydligt godare med IPA glas. Faan va dyr ölen är!?.

Fat på Mikkeller Bar, STHLM. Grumlig bärnsten. Doftar karamellmalt och övermogen frukt. Smakar röda bär, tropisk frukt. Lite spritig, inget speciellt. Three Floyds har en tendens att bli överrejtade pga gott rykte känns det som. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
