Wlow!!! This thing is a hop assault. Beer pours lightly cloudy golden color with a big, off white head. There is lots of lacing produced by the head. Aroma is BIG hops with massive citrus and more citrus. Maybe just a tad of alcohol. Taste is big Bitter. A big, hoppy imperial IPA. Delicous!!!

Pretty solid DIPA, good aroma, reasonably fruity flavor. More tropical than anything else.

I got this one in a recent trade with spycow. Decided I would bring it to our IPA day celebration.

A - Pours golden orange with a nice one finger tall white head leaving small wisps of lace down the glass.

S - Smells of grassy hops, tropical fruits; mostly grapefruit and mango; lightly toasted caramel malt, some day old bread, and the faintest hint of warming booze.

T - Starts off with a nice grassy hop bite quickly giving way to a mix of grapefruit, mango, sweet caramel malt, chewy bread, and some warming alcohol. The finish is a mix of light sweetness and hop bitterness, lingering for a short period of time.

M - Medium body and flavor with moderate carbonation. Sweet, hoppy, feel that lingers on the pallet for some time after finish.

O - I liked this one. It wasnít as good as the Dreadnaught I opened right before it but it was still pretty good. Another winner from FFF in my book.

Super complex hoppy aroma. Get tropical fruits, peach, grapefruit and a hint of pine and some sweet malt. Really well balanced and a great example of style. Clear golden color. Flavour is equally delicious, a great mix of tropical hop juice flavors and not much bitterness in the finish. Again stone fruit, citrus come through predominantly in the flavor, finishes slightly piney. Less sweet malt than would have been expected in the aroma. For 100IBU imperial IPA, this is super drinkable and hits all the right hop notes for my palate. Average carbonation and medium/heavy bodied.

Bottle pour thanks to Fitz, fresh from Indy. Pours a golden orange color with thick white head. Intoxicating aroma of apricot, orange peel, caramel and earthiness. Wow. Pulls you in. Sweet pungent citrus caramel taste with a nice hop hit and frothy mouthfeel. Itís a keeper. Too bad Fitz only brought me one bottle.

From a 22 oz bomber to a tulip glass, about a week old from the brewery. Aroma: a mild hop nose with notes of dried fruit, particularly apricot and orange peel, along with a little bready malt Appearance: pale orange, with a little cloudiness and a white head that recedes into lacing as you drink Taste: Loads of orange/tangerine jelly & dried apricot, and a caramel malt backbone that balances nicely for such a huge IPA. Pleasant lingering bitterness that isnít overwhelming. Palate: A medium body with average carbonation that leaves a resinous finish behind as mentioned above. Overall: Another excellent IPA from Three Floyds, and overall more unique to me. Almost tastes like a fruity trail mix blend. Good stuff.

taster on tap @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear medium amber, full off-white head cover, dots of lace. Taste is caramel malt that gives in to strong hops early in the palate. Sweet malt hangs on at the finish along with the bittering. Strong brew with overtones of alcohol, very drinkable.

Bomber. Pours a gorgeous Orange with a nice head. Smells of big time fruit and floral. Huge fruity taste. Big and hoppy just like an imperial should be. One of the best imperial ipaís out there.

A big want of mine since I got into craft beer. Pours a beautiful orange marmalade color. Aromas are over ripe tropical fruit, citrus. Flavors are pineapple and mango with a sweet caramel undertone. Finishes smooth. Dangerous. Delicious.

Light hazy orange straw body. Citrus smell. Very hoppy. Just finished an Apocalypse Cow, and this is much lighter, but still happier tasting. Grapefruit and citrus taste. Good stuff

Orangey color with a white head. Nice citrusy and piney aroma with a slight sweetnes. Taste is citrus and piney with a well balanced bitterness. Alcohol is well masked by the hops. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
