Aroma: lots of floral hops, tropical fruits (mango), citrus. Also some subtle malt character in the nose hiding behind the hops. Appearance: golden-orange with some haze, nice white head with low-moderate retention, dissipates to a ring fairly quickly. Flavor: follows the nose with citrus and tropical fruits, crystal malts, a bit toasty. Goes down way too easy for a 9% beer, dangerously tasty. Palate: medium body, slightly sticky, medium carbonation, very smooth. Overall: easy to forget the alcohol content and get carried away with the taste, great brew.

BMan1113VR (7897) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAR 13, 2011
Bottle via ba: billschmeinke. Pours with a hazed golden body with a white head. Aromas are hoppy: pine, citrus, gooseberry, papaya, guava and alfalfa. Flavors are bitter, grassy, citrus, hay, marmalade and guava. Lively bubbles. Dry finish. Enjoyable. Lingering bitterness.

Skinnyviking (7523) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 13, 2011
Bottle. Medium high fluffy white head. Slightly hazy yellow body. Apple pear mild aroma. Lovely bitter flavor with fruity notes of peaches apæples and oranges and a dusty dry note of notes based on an acidic lemon grape fruit on a fair amount of hops and a long bitter aftertaste. Low carbonation.

Defreni (2771) - Husum, DENMARK - MAR 13, 2011
Flaske: Klassisk amerikansk IIPA. Især i Danmark mister de lidt på rejsen, men stadig en dejlig øl. Masser af maltsødme på denne orange øl med et fint skumhoved. Bitterheden er fin opbakning til den massive sødme. Ikke så god som den anden IIPA jeg har fået fra three floyds men bestemt drikbar.

queenholly (3092) - South Whitley, Indiana, USA - MAR 8, 2011
22 oz bottle. Light hazy orange with a small white head. Aroma is pronounced grapefruit hops and some caramel malt. Tastes like is smells.. grapefruit balanced by a malty sweetness, lingering hop finish. Medium bodied. Another nice 3Fs brew.

Bomber. Alot of citrus and hops. More than the Dreadnaught. ABV very well hidden. Another absolute winner of a brew by Three Floyds, but I still prefer the Dreadnaught. Can’t go wrong with this, though.

hombrepalo (1916) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 7, 2011
22oz bottle from Whole Foods. Been wanting to try this for a while. Pricey son of a bitch. Pours hazy dark yellow with white head. Big grapefruit rind aroma with cramel. Lightly sweet grapefruit flavor with lots of bitterness. Medium body with moderate carbontion and a resinous mouthfeel. Very nice but didn’t think the the price fit the beer and not up to the dreadnaught level.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAR 6, 2011
22oz from West Lakeview Liquors. Nice early 80s power metal label. Handsome pour of hazy pale orange, with a cloudy swirl and a big foamy head. Nose initially suggests faded Dreadnaught, complex malts to the fore. Body is moderately creamy, with substantial carbonation and a pleasant dry finish. Flavors are initially very dry and tealike, interestingly enough, with more citrus rind and floral hops as you get into it. I actually found it much more subtle than FFF itself seems to. Quirky and enjoyable.

crossovert (8680) - Illinois, USA - MAR 6, 2011
22 oz bomber. It pours a light clear orangeish gold. The head is foamy and white. It dissipates fairly quickly and leaves a nice ring of lacing. This one smells pretty good. It is pretty much citrus through and through. There is a thin layer of sweetness but it is merely accentuating the citrus. There is predominant citrus rind in the flavor. There is a good amount of tropical fruit in here too. The hops are very vegetal and acidic, not exactly super-bitter. The mouthfeel is pretty thick and a bit syrupy. The sweetness mixed with the acidity is a bit much it creates an almost tingly cloying sensation. It just seems like something is missing from this DIPA, i suspect the use of Summit hops which imo are not one of my favorites due to the high acidity levels, but FFF pulled it off much nicer than Oskar Blues did. Overall it is solid, but if you want an amazing FFF DIPA go with the Dreadnaught edit: Had another bottle, this time with a bowl of Chili John’s chili and it was freakin awesome, the tropical acid flavor is gone and it is just a bitter hop bomb.

otakuden (1783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 6, 2011
Appearance: slightly hazy orange and yellow with more orange. Swirls whitish, leaving a bubbly head thick along the edges.
Nose: hoppy with pine and the zesty oils of citrus skins. Pine sap without the needles; sticky fingers. White and pink grapefruit. Mandarins and nectarines underneath.
Palate: clean, dry, resinous. Skins, pith, and oils of citrus fruit. Lingering awesome bitterness which sucks the moisture from my mouth. White grapefruit and pure pine sap mingle wonderfully. White grapefruit in the middle. Orange and nectarines aren’t there as were in the nose.
Final Thoughts: another easy winner from Three Floyds out of Munster, Indiana. Maybe a bit more orange in the palate but otherwise a tasty imperial IPA.
