Label is great, for what that is worth. Sort of a cross between an Imperial IPA and American Strong. Over the top sweet malt flavor with a healthy supply of Hops.

superspak (3236) - Michigan, USA - MAY 29, 2015
22 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 5/4/2015. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy bright orange/amber color with a 2 finger dense and rocky off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big lemon, orange, pineapple, apricot, pear, apple, pepper, pine, light oak, caramel, toasted bread, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of earthy hops, fruity yeast, and bready malt notes; with good strength. Taste of big lemon, orange, pineapple, apricot, pear, apple, pepper, pine, light oak, caramel, toasted bread, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Good amount of earthy spicy/piney bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, orange, pineapple, apricot, pear, apple, pepper, pine, light oak, caramel, toasted bread, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a while. Damn nice complexity, robustness, and balance of earthy hops, fruity yeast, and bready malt flavors; with a crisp malt/yeast/hop balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, fairly crisp/sticky, and slightly creamy mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with a light warmth lingering after the finish. Overall this is an excellent English IPA. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of earthy hops, fruity yeast, and bready malt flavors; and very smooth to drink for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering

Aroma of spicey hops, oak, and orange/tangerine and caramel. Taste is sweet creamy orange on the tip of the tongue, sweet corn malts and caramel in the middle; then lastly a powerful surge of spicey, earthy hops and oak. I am really digging these less hop forward beers from Three Floyd’s.

umich03jm (2577) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - MAY 20, 2015
Bottle. Murky dark orange pour with a huge, pillowy head that fades very slowly to a thick film. Leaves soapy lacing. Aroma is super sweet candied citrus and caramel. Tastes the same but also a bit stale and old. Hard to describe but I know I don’t like it. Not good.

madelfonatree (49) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 13, 2015
Look - Foamy amber orange. Off white head. Not too thick. Lacing is good. Bubbles are small. Smell - Orange and citrus. Faintly dank. There is a caramel and toast aroma as well. Taste - Toast. Caramel. Bitter. Faint dank hops. Bubblegum before the finish. Feel - Creamy and not too much carbonation. Really nice. Overall - I am glad I got to try this beer. It baffle me how each Floyds is distinctly different, but amazing.

jeremyh70 (866) - Missouri, USA - MAY 8, 2015
Light copper hazy little head. Honey biscuit caramel. Sweet caramel oaky moderate bitter herbal hops. Semi dry finish. Good but oak may be too much for style.

DocJitsu (1183) - Florida, USA - FEB 18, 2015
Pours an extraordinarily murky orange-golden with a long lasting tan-beige head. Aroma is akin to a wee heavy with a bit of citrus. Chewy. A lot of sweet and rich caramel with citrusy overtones.

Leighton (13620) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 4, 2015
Bottle shared during HamTech Reunion 2014. Thanks to the Duke, I think. Pours mostly clear gold with a foamy, white head. Pretty sweet overall, with some sugary berries, bread, mild bitterness. Medium to full bodied with fine to average carbonation. Sweet and lightly warming to finish, with more bready malts and ripening fruits. OK.

Rando7 (775) - Iowa, USA - JAN 1, 2015
Bottle pours deep yellow with generous shaving cream type head and good lacing. Aroma malts and spicy hops. Taste sweet malts, bready, biscuit with some oak spiciness. Finish hops, somewhat bitter but really more spicy and citric. I’m not a huge hop fan but the hops were not overdone here. Thick palate.

Unique enjoyable flavor.

Cloudy golden pour. Medium sized cream head. Lacing. Malty aroma with some notes of peach. Taste is fruity with some hop aroma coming through in the mouth as well. Sweet finish.
