4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at the Brewpub, October 21, 2011.
Hazy yellow golden with a small white head. Aroma of fruit, hops and some soap. The taste had also a lot of hops and fruit. Very good beer but not the best DIPA that I have tried.

Pours clear gold in color. Aroma is grassy with a touch of citrus. Taste is very hoppy, mostly pine. Very enjoyable without an alcohol bit. I could drink several of these. Another awesome brew from three floyds.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. Thanks dEnk for sharing. The aroma has citrus, pine mostly. Hazy, orange coloured beer with a white head. The taste is very bitter, very citric and massive piney, has some malts in the body. Dry harsh mouthfeel. Very dry. Sahel like dry.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from a bomber into a tulip glass. Appearance is a hazy copper to yellow color with a nice head of crisp white foam. Aroma is sweet with notes of grapefruit and caramel. This beer is fairly sweet, but not overly so. The grapefruit taste overpowers the sweetness from the malts. Long, sweet yet bitter finish.

Pours hazy orange with white head, aroma of dtrong pine and citrus hops, prange and grapefruit rind. As others have stated, sharp bitterness, a slight caramel sweetness if tpyou really seek it out, but overall it is straight bitter, orange rind flavor.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at tasting. Hazy light golden pour, thick foamy white head. Aroma is spicy citrus, coriander, blue cheese. Flavor is sharp bitter hops, grassy, somewhat rough and intense. Quite off-balance.

1. Look - A pale gold IPA with a big long lasting white head.
2. Sniff – There is a big citrusy hop aroma.
3. Sip – This IPA is medium bodied ale that is bitter start to finish. It has a very bitter dry taste. There is a slight orange flavor also.
4. Another Look – The beer looks average and very good lacing and a small head.
5. Evaluate – Overall, this is a big Imperial IPA. It has a very pleasant dry bitter finish. I would only recommend this Imperial IPA to serious IPA fans. In my opinion, this ale is overpriced, but a treat nonetheless.
