Probably my favorite of the 3floyds tap offerings at the DL release blow out. Again a bit hoppy with nice caramel notes. Appearence was darker and a bit cloudy.

Sampled at FFF during the dark lord release. Aroma is grapefruit, strawberry, caramel malts, floral, and hoppy. Smells wicked, unfortunately, the taste let me down. Appearance is clear reddish color with an offwhite head with decent lacing. The flavor is piney/sprucy/grassy with sweet malts. Very English in taste. Very bitter. Palate is VERY bitter. A hint of acedicness with a sweetness that sticks to the mouth.

UPDATED: NOV 6, 2005 On tap at the brewery at the Dark Lord release party: Looks good. Smells good. Tastes good. I should probably add that it was a hazy copper color with a decent head, a sweel caramel aroma bursting with herbal, earthy hops, a nicely balance of the tastes in the flavor, and a lingering herbal bitter finish. I like this brew. It should be in bottles

UPDATED: JUL 3, 2008 Draft, at the Dark Lord release party as "Thulza Doom." Hmm. An IPA from 3 Floyds. Bet we haven’t had of those before. But seriously, this does distinguish itself from the other "Alpha K" beers in the Floyds arsenal. Color is cloudy copper. Smell is not as grassy as previously, but the big hop bite is there, and much more spicy, too. Malts are a bit dry and mild, but then I think about orange Tootsie Pops. Noticeable alcohol, but not in the way. I’ll like to see this at the brewpub when it finally opens, arranged thematically between Precious and Dark Lord.

Mangino (1027) - Mississippi, USA - APR 29, 2005
On Tap sampled outside of 3F’s on the back of a truck. Pours a hazy amber color. Aroma is full of fruit, strawberry and kiwi. Delicious. Flavor is astringent and piney hops. The flavor and aroma are very contrasting. Very interesting

This has the 3floyd signature hop aroma and taste. The color is a dark brown with a hint of red and a thin head on my glass. Taste is full of hops, malt, and spice. The spice will leave an aftertaste that will stay with you for a while. Great addition to the 3floyd family.
