Long Island, NY - 22 oz. bottle courtesy of Valpobeerclub. It poured a glories orange color with white fluffy head. Aroma was intense of citrus and hops. Taste was initially sweet and very hoppy. I really like the extra hoppiness of this india pale ale. There is a layer of earthiness that is present as well. It seems like there was a quick essence added towards the end of the brewing process. This by far was the best Imperial IPA that I’ve had to date. Good job Three Floyds, very good job! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a nice looking golden orange, with thin off white head. Has a citrus, orange, peach, and mango aroma. There’s a citrus, peach, mango, grapefruit, and slight caramel taste. Overall very smooth, and the abv hidden nicely.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at Jester King Zwanze Day. Golden pour with a white head. The aroma and flavor have some very nice tropical fruit and orange citrus notes. The juicy orange notes really stand out, but are complemented by some sweet malty character. I also get some nice alcohol and bitterness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

22oz bomber shared at tasting. Tastes better than I remembered from when I had it before(?). Garlic,green onion overload. A little hairspray. very bold and intense. A touch harsh. One for the hardcore.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle in trade from Joe. Thanks buddy! Been wanting to try this one for a while now. Bottle dated 8/20/14 poured 9/11/14. Pours very slightly hazy golden orange colored with a huge creamy and fluffy white head. Aroma is big time juicy citrus hops, mango, pineapple, grapefruit, grass, sweet malt and very reminiscent of Dreadnaught (though it's been a while since I had that one). Flavor is big on the dry pine bitterness with sweet mango and grapefruits, some sweet malt backing but this is much lighter than expected. Lingering dry bitterness on the tongue. This seems to bridge the gap of the super bitter and the sweet tropical malty DIPA extremes and comes off very nicely. Medium plus bodied, very resinous, dry finish, with medium carbonation. This is excellent.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A most excellent gift. Pours a hazy golden toward orange-ish with a fair off-white cap that hangs out at a low level and leaves some touches of spotty lace. Nose involves a stone fruit perfume riding above a robust gym-socky yeast along with some crackery, biscuity and lightly caramelized malts. Pretty sweet, decently but not insanely bitter. Big body, oily, soft yet active, with a lingering tingly piney bitterness. Perhaps Dreadnaught and Panzer Wolf had a love child, and they named it Permanent Funeral? Whatever the familial background, this is definitely tasty, and definitely worth a shot even if you are a 3 Floyds h8r (like I may or may not be). Would be fun to smoke a green bowl with. I think there may be some Illuminati symbolism in the art-work, but there is also Illuminati symbolism in the mock-up I did for Dogfish Head Saison du Buff (blank 4-pack holders, wtf???), so, I think the feds finally found out about craft beer. Now we can all burn in hell in peace. (p.s. I set aside a 2 oz portion in the sun for like 7 minutes and, yeah, skunked. Science is kool!).
