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 didnít think the the price fit the beer and not up to the dreadnaught level.

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.

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 Johnís 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 arenít 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.

22oz. Bottle: Aroma of hops, pine, citrus, tropical fruit, tangerine, pineapple, light peach, and slight crystal malt. Poured amber in color with a medium-sized, creamy, white head that greatly diminished but lasted throughout as a film on top of the beer, as well as around the edges. Cloudy. Sparkling. Full of tiny and small particles throughout. Flavor is medium sweet and heavily bitter. Tastes of hops, citrus, pine, tangerine, slight peach, slight resin, and a hint of malt. Medium body. Tingly, then dry texture. Average to lively carbonation. Medium sweet, heavily bitter, hop, citrus, pine, tangerine, finish is dry. 9%ABV is completely hidden throughout.

First of all, love the label. This beer is metal to the core. Now, while I suspect that this beer will be a blunt instrument, what Conan the Barbarian might drink were he a 21st century craft beer enthusiast, rather than a Cimmerian warrior, it is, in fact, not nearly as bluntly assertive as I expected. This beer isnít a roided out warrior. Itís a slow moving river, powerful and lovely. Pours a nice, medium copper orange. Nose is a nice combination of the more bitter grapefruit hops flavors and the sweeter orange notes. Flavors coincide with the nose, with a long, slow fading of the hoppy goodness.

Bottle shared at a recent BA/RB tasting... Poured clear orange with a smallish head. Very sweet and fruity. Notes of citrus, passionfruit and bubblegum. Sweet malts, yeast esters, mild bitterness, and a barley-cereal grain tone.

Pours hazy orange with lasting stark white head, on tap at Sugar Maple. Aroma has big citrus and tropical fruit, noteably orange, grapefruit, pineapple, touch of mango, along with some pine and a hint of caramel. Taste is a perfect DIPA in concept, notes of big orange, grapefruit, pineapple mixing with pine and resin, some sweet caramel, and a nicely bitter finish. Not a tongue bruiser, even a touch sweet for me, but a delicious and hoppy IPA.

Iíve yet to have an Imperial IPA that has so much tropical fruit in it. The mouth feel is thick and finishes dry. This is an incredible IPA. Aroma is floral and simple. Smells of sweet ripe fruits and floral pine. Starts of thick and sweet with a perfect ending....dry, fresh and bitter. FFF is unrivaled in the way they balance these brews they are putting out. It pours a gold yellow, slightly hazy with a nice head that fades into a lace.

Bottle split with dbarnold. One of my favorite DIPAs around, with usual 3 Floyds hop flavor that is marvelous.
