4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: JAN 5, 2014 Pours a bright, opaque sunset orange color with decent carbonation and about a finger length head that dissipates to a thin lacing. Smells of pretty bright, juicy tropical fruits like papaya, guava, and pineapple. Also get some resinous citrus fruits like orange and a slight grapefruit. Nice candied sweetness as well. Smells like a big, sweet, citrusy double ipa. Taste is amazing. Starts with bright, clean citrus fruits like orange and grapefruit with some resinous pine that adds quite a bit of abrasive bitterness. Then melds into a nice carmel/candied sweetness, somewhat bready malt backbone. This gives the fruity hop qualities a more juicy-like flavor. Finish brings a slight abrasive bitterness back, but its subdued compared to some of their other dipas. Along with this comes more of the tropical fruit variety. Pineapple, papaya, and mango stand out as well as a great candied sweetness. Also get just a hint of pine. Just the slightest alcohol burn on the end, but no alcohol to smell or taste, which is impressive for 10.5%. A crisp and somewhat clean, refreshing finish that really makes this beer awesome. High medium body with a creamy and slightly oily mouthfeel from the hops, but still very clean compared to other dipas at this strength. I have very high expectations when it comes to three floyds dipas and this one meets it and then some. Outstanding beer.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Rated on 8-04-2016 at 6 Autumns Food & Spirits, Angola, IN. The appearance of this draft beer served in a snifter is a small white head that is fully lasting, golden body, very little carbonation observed, and a fair amount of lacing. The aroma presents citrus hops, tropical fruit, sweet, and caramel malt. The flavor presents light bitterness, citrus hops, fruity, sweet, and caramel malt. The mouthfeel is moderate carbonation and this beer is medium bodied. A very quaffable beer with a good hop, bitter taste. It is a nice sipping beer that I enjoyed with my steak meal. It is worth trying and a beer that I would definitely partake in again.

This draft brew from a restaurant poured a very small sized head of foamy white colored bubbles that were very quickly diminishing and left behind a uncarbonated transparent light orange brown colored body and a good lacing. . The mild citrus crisp mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start mediumly tingly at the finish with a lingering hoppy aftertaste. The nice flavor contained notes of bitter wood mild citrus mildly vinous candy burnt malt and hops. Delicious and one I would certainly like to have again.
