Drinking notes from GTM 05: Wow lots of different hop notes. Beer is much better once it warms up. Hop notes blend a lot nicer.

"a unique take on an english style ipa for sure, with lots of malt, biscuity character, toasty, but with a strong bitter hop finish and toasted oak undertones. very well done. no way i thought it was 9%."

22 ounce bottle poured into a tulip. Thanks to my friend Daniel for the trade! Bottle date is a bit smudged but looks like either March or May 2014. Clear golden orange with 3 fingers of off-white head. Nice webby lacing. Aromas of toasty notes, wood, coconut, citrus, a bit of alcohol, light oak. Tastes of citrus, oak, coconut, slight vanilla, floral notes, some alcohol. Medium body with a dry finish. Medium-low carbonation. Oak aging adds some nice flavors and works fairly well. More of an oak aged DIPA to me than an English Style IPA as the label says.

EyeAmBaldman (270) - Illinois, USA - AUG 16, 2014
Pours a clear golden color with a thick white head. Aroma is sweet with a citrus hop bitterness on the nose. Taste is real fruity (apricots?) and light bodied. This was my first Three Floyd’s beer and I’m sure others taste better. This was an interesting start.

teemoney (77) - Wisconsin, USA - AUG 16, 2014
Poured into tall lager/ pilsner glass (what I had available). Yellowish gold with decent white head. Smell has some fruit, some malt, and maybe some vinegar(?). Taste is english malts and fruit hops, with an interesting bitter/ sour finish. Feel is full. Not bad, unique flavor with the unaccostomed-to ingredients.

On tap at local gastropub. Pours a light copper color. Nice balance between malt and hop. A solid English style IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TXBadger (1421) - Dallas, Texas, USA - AUG 4, 2014
Pours a clear amber color with white head. Citrus, oak, butterscotch, and some pine on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a slightly bittersweet note. Reminds me of Cigar City’s White Oak Aged Jai Alai. Stunningly similar.

pinkzambia (1505) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 22, 2014
Bottle: Clear gold with not much head. Musty leather aroma with some funky sweetness in there as well. Bitter, yeasty flavors with a watery feel but still leaving a slight film on the tongue. I also picked up a little butterscotch in the aftertaste as well.

It’s about as perfect of beer as you can find. I will warn you drink this one quickly it will give you a buzz with one pint. I would expect a bitter flavor with something with this high of abv level. But it has a great flavor and aroma.

Love this brewery. Not my favorite from them. Get a black licorice flavor at the end which ruins it for me. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
