ContemplateBeer (1542) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JAN 28, 2011
On tap at O’Shea’s, Louisville. Aroma of grapefruit, piney hops, white sugar and a little dustiness. Appearance is cloudy gold with 1/4 inch white head. Flavor matched the nose, starting out with fruit sweetness and terminating with high hop bitterness- hardly any malt presence to comment about. Palate is creamy. Another American hop bomb. So creative...

ChainGangGuy (4376) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JAN 28, 2011
Appearance: Pours a clouded, darkened yellow body with a small-sized, whitish head. Smell: Immediately, APW unapologetically stings the nostrils with condensced florals, distilled resins, powderized pith, and handmade soap. Taste: Simplistic cracker-accented malts, lacking sweetness, preclude the all-too fatiguing hop tastes of resinous pine sap, ground aspirin tabelts, and bitter white citrus pith. Harshly bitter. Small sip of plumeria-scented soap. The only thing left to oppose the bitterness is some numbing booze. Finishes dry, astringent. Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: Not particularly drinkable, no. Abrasive, grating, and unpleasant.

JoeTheYounger (1144) - Lake Arrowhead, California, USA - JAN 27, 2011
Bottle shared by DuffmanSW. Poured a hazy golden color with the tiniest head. Aroma was tons of grapefruit and sweet pineapple. Very fruity and malty. Taste was hoppy and malty with sweet backbone and a crisp mild bitterness.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - JAN 26, 2011
Pours gold with a rocky, white head. Smells of citrus, some floral notes, spicy. Tastes of resiny hops, bitter, spicy with an astringent finish.

It good as is everything from FFF. I felt the alcohol getting to me early and that was a nice surprise.

I really couldn’t taste anything after splitting this one with my buddy jcos. If you were to compare with dreadnaught, it has more hops (somehow) and they carry through a longer part of the palate...really decimating. I like it! As usual with 3floyds, great citrusy hop nose really starts you off well. This one then follows with hops, hops and hops. Resiny finish.

dcschiller (2207) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JAN 22, 2011
(22oz bottle fromjc!) Pours golden with big white head. Active carbonation. Aroma of hopfunk, citrus and pine. Taste is sweet malt with light grapefruit bitterness. Fizzy on the tongue with a bitter finish. Excellent DIPA.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JAN 17, 2011
Bomber, relatively fresh I assume. Pours a hazy to downright cloudy, glowing, golden-orange color. A small, fluffy head of off-white foam slowly fades away to a gentile, swirly wisp with a thin edge. Wet, soapy arches break apart into thin, random flares and small spots of lacing. The nose is, as most Three Floyds concoctions are, quite bold, showing the requisite monster, dripping, resinous citrus hops. Tangerine, orange, and grapefruit all burst from the glass, quite fresh and crisp, with high alpha and citric acids. Despite the aggressive hopping, there is also a fairly delicate, pilsner-like malt base, suggesting of sweet bread dough, cracker, and a touch of dry honey. Unfortunately, it’s a bit overly alcoholic as well. Flavors largely follow suit, though the forward orange, bitter grapefruit, and sticky pine tend to dominate the underlying sweet pils and bread dough malts a bit more than the nose lets on. Some pithy lemon nips at the roof of the mouth, ramping up the bitter tendencies as the substantial palate moves into moderately astringent territory. Fine, active carbonation fights through a dense, unfiltered, yet feathery body. Alcohol makes its presence felt, warming the mouth up quite a bit and drying out the finish. Sugars tend to sit heavy in the stomach. Overall, I’d say that this beer smells and looks the part, but a bit of soapiness, a heavily sugared body, and some astringent alcoholic tendencies knock it down several notches in my book.

nimrod (73) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - JAN 17, 2011
22oz bottle pours hazy gold. Resinous hops, citrus, and apricot aroma. Taste is dry, bitter followed by some sweet malt. Less carbonation and aroma than expected. Solid beer, but I guess I was trying to compare it with Dreadnaught.

mattyb83 (737) - Minnesota, USA - JAN 16, 2011
22oz bottle. Pour is a pretty clear golden color. Light aroma that is slightly fruity orange, citrus, and a hint of malt. Taste is citrus up front, but quickly turns to caramel malt, and marmalade . Finish is slightly boozy. This bottle was slightly past its prime, but definitely enjoyable and drinkable. Would love to try a fresher bottle.
