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%)

Pours a nearly clear gold with a tin, soapy white head. Aroma is citrus, cereal, caramel, sweet crystal-like malt and a little booze. Flavor is citrus, pine, light tree fruit, spicy hops, more crystal malt, toast nice alcohol and some yeasty fruitiness. Creamy palate, medium carbonation and creamy entry to off dry finish. Tasty stuff.

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

Draught @ Mikkeller Bar. Strange grainy, alcoholic aroma. Taste is awfully sweet with notes of flowers and honey. What sent wrong here?

Keg. Unclear reddish orange with a small off white head. Sweet tropical fruits, sugary malt, red candy, resin. Full body, oily texture, medium sweet and bitter. The alcohol challenges the sweetness and gives some balance. Long warming finish. Barley wine/ipa.

Bottle from unknown via Kyler B. Pours a hazy orange, decent amount of head. Aroma crisp and citrusy, with a slightly yeast/floor malt backing. Body thick and rich, finish very crisp with a slight spicy/resin character. Wow. Exceptional!

2011 bottle, courtesy of a kind soul... shared in a location remote of my dining room.
Pours a hazy yellow with a decent sized head and good lacing on the glass.

The aroma is lightly sweet with plenty of grassy and herbal hops. It’s also got fruity elements, most particularly citrus rind.

The flavor is lightlysweet with piety of honey and citrus. The beer is moderately bitter and far boozier than I’d prefer it to be.


Fun, not really my bag, but fun.
