On tap at Comet Cafe Store. Hop aromas.Tasty dipa. Very good hop blend, right there in bitterness, lots of malt. Peachy looking body. A little acidic after a few sips. Very enjoyable citrus orange and tropical fruit, although I would most be pleased by better balance.

UPDATED: SEP 3, 2011 Tap. Gold pour with a clingy white head. Awesome huge citrus hop nose. Monster citrus hop flavor with huge hop bite but well contained with malt late. This is killer.

This is another winner from FFF. The hop character is the star and is really well balanced for a 9% beer. Some IIPAs have too much sweetness and malt in comparison to the hop schedule but not the IIPAs by three floyds. Aroma and taste of tangerines, spruce, mango, and grass clippings. Crisp refreshing and amazing.

Orange pour, big citrus nose. This is a big ipa. Perfect blend of pine and citrus flavor hops. Longing bitter finish. Malts play a minor role here.

Pours hazy orange with a thin white head and no lacing. Fresh hoppy aroma with notes of grapefruit and lemon. Taste is lots of hops and citrus. Long finish.

22 oz Bomber poured into a tulip at home. Aroma of pine right off the bat. Slight head faded quickly. Bitterness takes over each drink. Super slick in your mouth. This was kind of spicy. Big alcohol burn. Overall this was pretty solid. There was a TON of sediment in the bottle I had, so watch out when you pour.

Doesn’t look like a monster in the glass, but still really nice color. Hazy yellow gold. Smells soapy. Pine. Lemon pepper. Sticky looking, tasting, and smelling. Nice resinous notes. Easily achieves balance for me. Delicious. Maybe as good as Dreadnaught.

Pour is a nice orange color with a small khaki color head which quickly turns into a ring. Nose is extremely fruity from the hops. Taste is so sweet, with robust mango flavors, fading into a nice hoppy finish.

My favorite from 3F’s, and a massive DIPA chock full of mango and citrus in the nose and mouth. Ridiuclous amount of hops (not a bad thing). Pours a bright orange-gold with decent head retention. A warmth from the alcohol, but not unpleasant, complex throughout and worth every penny. Buyer beware though: this is definitely not one for the faint of heart.
