3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: DEC 9, 2013 Bottle: murky amber and copper, so hazy and cloudy that it blocks all light. Foamy, soapy eggshell head. Aroma is perfume and floral hops, light tropical fruits and some sweet caramel malt. Taste starts with a strong malty caramel base thatís pretty sweet. Hops come in quick, pungent, floral, and strong like perfume. Heavy bitterness fades into finish with more buttery malt sweetness. Pretty thick and sticky mouth feel with rolling carbonation. Not my favorite, too sweet and too much caramel malt. Decent at best... very overrated in my opinion.

An unbelievably good imperial ipa. Smells super tasty Nd is really bitter and hoppy. Like all three Floyd beers it is excellent.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: Hazy amber to orange bodied, thin light tan head.
Aroma: Orange juice and light floral notes.
Taste: Moderately bitter, lots of orange juice presence. Very one-note.
Palate: Medium bodied, moderately bitter.
Overall: Pretty good, but very simple. No layered hop complexity, just a straight forward citrus IIPA.

På mikkeller & friends. Först tog den slut i shopen någon timme före vi hinner dit och vi börjar grina. MEN då visar det sig att den finns i baren! Doftar maltsötma. Mycket härlig smak. Väldigt maltig. Datum? Framgår ej och kapsylen är kastad. Men troligen är den färsk då den levereras direkt utan mellanhänder och dom fick den för några dagar sedan. Kul att vi fick tag på den tillslut. Pröjsade ca 200 danska

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
#2450. Courtesy of tderoeck. Thx! 650 ml. bottle sampled @ RBBSG II. Bottled during 04/2013. Bright orange with a white head. Nose is sweet grapefruit, passion fruit, touch exotic fruits, light malt backbone & slightly starting to fade. Taste is bitter grapefruit, very dry, spices, bitter citrus, herbs, light sweet malts, quite heavily bitter. Substantial body. Solid IIPA, I enjoyed it but I donít really get the hype. The profile is not unique, just standard USA IIPA and it is not the best made example I have had.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured from a bomber into a tulip glass. Aromas of peach and citrusy hops. Pours a golden-amber, with a fluffy white head. Flavors of caramel and citrusy hops. For as hoppy as this beer is, itís very well-balanced. Damn, this is good.

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours out of the 22 oz bomber a cloudy golden orange with a thick, three finger eggshell colored head. Nice retention with soapy lacing throughout my Spiegelau IPA glass. The aroma is heavy on hops - lots of citrus, hint of pine, with some grassy/floral notes. in addition to the wonderful hop aromas, one can also detect sweet malt and some biscuity notes. On the front of the tongue there's sweet citrus, toffee, and bread. Dreadnaught finishes with nice bitterness with hints of tropical fruit, rose, grass and sweet malts. Full bodies with a thick mouthfeel and effervescent carbonation. Overall, if this isn't the best DIPA on the market, it's pretty close. Another homerun FFF.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sampled from bottle @ RBBSG II. One of my big time wants thanks to tderoeck. Huge thanks Tim! Clear orange color, small to medium sized white to off - white head. Smell malts, oranges, lightly grapefruit and hops. Taste malts, hops, moderately grapefruit, medium to heavy bitter. Long lingering bitterness in the finish with a touch of fruityness. Medium to full body and carbonation. Well, itís a very nice beer, but (maybe because of huge expectations) itís not the gigantic 4+ I had hoped it would be. Still, I would drink this everyday if I had the chance.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a nice golden amber color with a frothy white head that lasts an average while and leaves great lacing. Aroma is fruit, citrus and sweet mostly with some pine notes. Flavor is bittersweet but still smooth with citrus and pine notes. Finish is minimal but a little bitter. Mouth feel is astringent carbonation is average. I love the aroma but the flavor does not seem to match its complexity.
