4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: NOV 23, 2013 Have had plenty of times, but have never reviewed it. Pours a hazy sunset orange color with a finger length head that goes away quickly. All their double ipas look the same, but thatís not a bad thing. Nice carbonation coming off the glass. Smells of resinous pine, fresh cut grass, apricot, little sweetness, breadiness quality to it, little orange. Very dry. Interesting smell. Taste starts with a smack in the face of abrasive bitterness. Get some apricot, orange, tons of grapefruit, pine, some grass in the front. Then the breadiness from the malts kick in in the middle and somewhat cut the bitterness. The sweetness from the dextrose sugar also comes in and somewhat balances it. Then on the back end, just loads of more abrasive bitterness, but accompanied with flavors of grapefruit, apricot, mango, pine, some grass, some floral notes as well. The sweetness lingers through the back end. The carbonation does wonders for this beer to at least try to clean the palate from the resinous hop qualities. Very dry finish. No detection of the 9% alcohol content, which has never been a problem for them. High medium body with a creamy and oily texture from the hop oils. If you are a hop head, you will love this beer. Very intense, yet complex.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: DEC 17, 2013 One of my favorites. Tons of grapefruit/tangerine in aroma and taste. Super bitter, but with enough tropical fruit to easily even it out. Definitely not west coast, but easily one of the most complex and best IPAs Iíve ever had.

Poured at the Three Floyds Brew Pub. Beautiful pour with a medium two finger head. Aroma is fresh and crisp. Hops, pine, citrus, grass all hit the nose. Taste is balanced and refreshing. Just the right amount of carbonation. Hides the ABV well. Nice hop balance on the palate. Mouth feel is good with a nice amount of hop with a thin malt finish. Another fantastic brew from Three Floyds.
