Had it out of a bomber from the brewery. Pours a clear copper hue and a thick head with a wonderful bouquet of hop citrus and apricot aromas. Tastes silky smooth with hops and mango apricot flavors.

Pours a dark orange with a finger length head that goes away pretty quickly and leaves a blanket of lacing. Lots of carbonation coming off the glass. Smells of tons of mango, tropical fruit, stone fruit, pine, and carmel. Tastes pretty much like it smells. Starts of with lots of mango and tropical fruits. Then the middle brings a malty doughy quality that melds with the hop flavors and somewhat balances it. The finish is the best part of this beer in my opinion. Just a cornucopia of fruit flavors. You could argue six or seven different fruits. Definitely more mango and tropical fruits, but also stone fruit and pine resin. Tastes like a bitter, yet sweet fruit salad. There is a sweetness that builds along with the hop intensity. High medium body with an oily and creamy mouthfeel that is perfect for this beer. This is the best showcase of the mosaic hop Iíve had yet. Really complex, juicy fruit flavors. A very well-done IPA that lived up to my high expectations given the two breweries and their knowledge of hops.

22 oz bomber into a teku glass. Thanks sleuthdog! Pours a clear reddish amber color with two fingers of light khaki foam. Killer lacing and retention. S - Huge tropical notes of papaya, mango, and nectarine clash up against some savory almost Simcoe cat pee/onion like savoryness. Dank, dank bud with a tropical fruit glaze. Canít imagine it being great in a few weeks but right now its really awesome and intense. A little caramel malt and booze to round it out. Very large and complex. T - Nectarines, papaya, mango, and orange juice. Less savory then the nose but it still has some dank resin towards the end. Bready malts and some caramel with a lasting peach fruitiness and bitterness. Very tasty stuff. Mouth feel is medium bodied but could use a bit more carbonation. O - Damn good single hopper. Huge tropical fruit notes with some really nice resinous and malt notes to keep it in check. Really awesome collaboration beer and worth checking out for sure.

(9/9/13) Pours a very nice orange copper with lots of carb forming a decent cream colored head. The nose is rather unique. Itís dank herbal hops (almost a bit antiseptic) with a bit of a peppery quality mixed with juicy tropical sweetness - mango & pineapple - and a ton of grapefruit citrus. It even has that sour grapefruit bitterness to it. The nose on this is ridiculously complex. The taste is less complex than the nose would let on. Itís mostly bitter astringent, grassy hops. The bitterness comes across as really complex, but I cannot pinpoint what those complexities are - itís just a shifting, complex bitterness that I can only describe as extremely pleasant and refreshing. The mouthfeel is medium-bodied and creamy. I figured it would be sticky and oily, but ended up being quite smooth. Overall this is a very enjoyable brew. The nose is ridiculously unique and I just wish the taste had followed suit. Not to say the taste was bad or lacking, but the nose wrote checks the taste failed to cash. However, I would drink this brew again in a heartbeat. Something about the bitterness within the taste really just worked for me despite not following the nose. This is a unique brew from two phenomenal breweries and I think it stands out as something different in the current sea of quality IPAs that currently exist in the craft world.

Hoppy citrius aroma, grapefruit, pineapple and orange. Nice balance of hoppiness, maltiness, and sweetness. Another delicious ipa from 3 floyds.

Grapefruit is right, smack, pow, right in the kisser! Insanely amount of citrus hops overwhelm this delicious beverage. Awesome.

22 oz bottle from the brewery (Munster, IN). Stopped by to pick up a couple new rates before swinging by the homestead. Pours a deep copper hue, good mellow haze with deeper sunset and amber glow throughout. Striking color, a touch dulled with a cakey offwhite head. Stays as a firm layer, laces ok. Aromas are richly fruit, mosaic hop offers some good life. Tropical fruit, melon, and citrus. Oranges and gumball, gentle sweetness grows. Decent florals, a touch resiny. Grapefruit, a good juicy quality as it settles. Initial is lighter end of medium bodied, a gentle carbonation meets a rich fruity medium to firm bitter front end. Some tropical fruit, oranges and melon, grapefruit and tropical elements. Not as sweet as I remember the Half Acre version. This one seems to preach a stronger hop melange, lots of fruit with melon, tropical fruit, oranges and grapefruit. Medium to firm bitterness, a bit stronger into the backend. Touches of bready malt, biscuit is subtle. Floral and grassy bitterness, some good fruit elements. Tropical, some grapefruit, melon and gentle mango. Decent to firm dryness. Some gentle spiciness, medium to firm bitterness. A richer fruit melange but not as sweet as the Half Acre version. Pretty nice beer, nose is rich but not overpowering. Great flavors, good firm bitterness without being overpowering. A touch sweeter, but richer fruit melange and complex. Tasty. A bit better than the HA version.

kermis (5068) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - OCT 16, 2013
Draft at Three Floydís Brewpub. Pours hazy amber with an off white head. Aroma of grapefruit, pine, resinous hops, citrus and orange peel. Flavour is light moderate sweet and heavy bitter, the hop character from the nose coming out even stronger and almost seeping out of your skin with resiney hop juiciness. Full bodied with soft carbonation.
