This beer is right in my wheelhouse. Hoppy, but not over the top with a milder malt bill. Even a novice can smell the grapefruit in this one. Three Floyds always delivers the best in quality.

On tap in Madison. Darker pale body. Huge wonderful floral aroma. Taste is similar. Like eating fresh pineapples and tropical fruit salad. Very delicious. Can totally tell Half Acre helped design this beer. Seems actually more like a Half Acre beer to me with a zing of Zombie Dust.

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.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

Very clean finish, very much hops forward, but less than other three floyds like Berzerker. It's a delicious, easy drinking beer. I didn't get any malty ipa in the back end. Clean, crisp, and tart. I'll definitely buy again if I can find it again.

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.
