3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz Bottle. Appearance is slightly hazy, orange color with medium, off-white head. Aroma is heavy citrus with notes of orange sweetness, grapefruit, and mango. Taste is well-balanced with nice moderate sweetness overlaid with a smooth citra hop bitterness. Some resinous piney notes also present. Palate is light- to medium-bodied, slightly thin texture, light but lively carbonation, and a dry finish. I was a little disappointed at first but the complexity came out as the beer warmed up. Well-crafted brew.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from a six pack of bottles, nice looking glass of beer. Taste was tropical fruit, some fresh hops, very little bitter, went down smooth and quickly. Could have been stronger for the price.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Tap-House Munich. Hazy, dirty golden with a healthy offwhite foam. Hoppy passion fruit aroma. Exotic fruits hop bitterness, dwarfing the hints of toffee. No compromise hop bitterness!

Aroma was almost all citrus. Appearance orange. Taste was a very well balanced citrus without the harsh bitterness you would expect for this style. Outstanding IPA.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Eminently drinkable considering the octane. Well balanced was the first thought that came to mind, hops, citrus in the grapefruit direction. Not overly hopped like some Three Floyds manifestations. The aroma did not register with me as much as other reviewers, perhaps they had it on draught.
