3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewery Dark Lord Weekend.
This lightly golden IPA throws up a long lasting white head.
The aroma is malty and the flavor is hoppy. A big hop bitterness builds into the finish, but a sweet malt balance descibes this one.

Slightly hazed straw yellow with not much of a white head. Big sweet fruity gummy bear nose. Tropical fruit sort of hops. A big wonderful sweet juiciness to the hop character rather than an over the top bitterness. I would argue this isnít balanced, but thatís not a bad thing at all. Full creamy mouth with nice smooth relatively subdued bubbles. Fruity full succulent hops. A bit of a wheaty estery character perhaps? A creamy finish, with those gummy bears certainly returning.

$4 glass from FFF. my first beer at the brewery 2 nights ago. good starter beer, and i could have more if i wasnít at FFF trying as many different beers as i could. Decent IPA, lower IBU (taste at least) than some, but a good session beer.

Nice cleanly hoppy IPA (made by robots according to the brewery :)). Had this beer after Dreadnot so it was difficult to determine the hop varieties used but it seems complex and spicy. Enjoyed it much but not my favorite from the brewery visit.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured a golden color. Aroma was citrus and hops. Taste was fairly straight forward. Hops abound, fairly balanced, pine and citrus in the finish. Nice IPA, but isnít the best work from Three Floyds.
