Bottle pour thanks to Fitz, fresh from Indy. Pours a golden orange color with thick white head. Intoxicating aroma of apricot, orange peel, caramel and earthiness. Wow. Pulls you in. Sweet pungent citrus caramel taste with a nice hop hit and frothy mouthfeel. Itís a keeper. Too bad Fitz only brought me one bottle.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
From a 22 oz bomber to a tulip glass, about a week old from the brewery.
Aroma: a mild hop nose with notes of dried fruit, particularly apricot and orange peel, along with a little bready malt
Appearance: pale orange, with a little cloudiness and a white head that recedes into lacing as you drink
Taste: Loads of orange/tangerine jelly & dried apricot, and a caramel malt backbone that balances nicely for such a huge IPA. Pleasant lingering bitterness that isnít overwhelming.
Palate: A medium body with average carbonation that leaves a resinous finish behind as mentioned above.
Overall: Another excellent IPA from Three Floyds, and overall more unique to me. Almost tastes like a fruity trail mix blend. Good stuff.

taster on tap @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear medium amber, full off-white head cover, dots of lace. Taste is caramel malt that gives in to strong hops early in the palate. Sweet malt hangs on at the finish along with the bittering. Strong brew with overtones of alcohol, very drinkable.

Bomber. Pours a gorgeous Orange with a nice head. Smells of big time fruit and floral. Huge fruity taste. Big and hoppy just like an imperial should be. One of the best imperial ipaís out there.

A big want of mine since I got into craft beer. Pours a beautiful orange marmalade color. Aromas are over ripe tropical fruit, citrus. Flavors are pineapple and mango with a sweet caramel undertone. Finishes smooth. Dangerous. Delicious.

Light hazy orange straw body. Citrus smell. Very hoppy. Just finished an Apocalypse Cow, and this is much lighter, but still happier tasting. Grapefruit and citrus taste. Good stuff
