4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours slightly hazy gold with some head and decent retention. Aroma is the DANKEST IPA I’ve every laid nose to. Pine, cedar, cheesy hop cones, some mango and honey but mostly smells like some medicinal chronic. Taste piney parmesean cheese, some grapefruit and tangerine, big cedar finish. Body is medium, creamy/dense, low carbonation, super long complex bitter cheesy hop finish, surprisingly balanced though. Overall, easily the best double IPA from the Floyds and certainly the best being brewed in the Midwest right now!
650 mL bottle. Pours a rusty orange. Smells of grapefruit, resin, alcohol, caramel malt. Strong aroma. Tastes just as strong. This is abrasive in many ways. Grapefruit, sweet caramel malt, intense resin and accompanying bitterness. It’s so bitter that I can tolerate the sweetness. Alcoholic, though, which I don’t like. Medium heavy. As I said, it’s abrasive. Not easy to drink, but it’s got a good ratio of over the top flavors. arminjewell (9670) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - FEB 26, 2017
Pour on tap at the brewery, hazy dark orange-red pour with off white head, aroma brought notes of grapefruit, peach, orange, some pine into a bit of caramel, toffee, touch of booze. Taste was a mix of caramel, toffee, orange, sweet peach into some slight pine, touch of spice, finishing bitter. jgb9348 (6259) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - FEB 20, 2017
Super hazy amber and copper coloured body with a thinnish, fast-dying tan head, about a centimetre tall. Aroma of rich resinous and piney hops showing some perfume and a good deal of both alcohol and a big malt backbone. Medium to Full-bodied; Strong rich malty flavours show first with a nice metallic and astringent quality that shows well, along with some grassy and perfumey hoppy flavours near the end, along with a steady stream of sugars from apricots, pears and a touch of caster sugar. Aftertaste is rich and strong and hits hard up front with the metal and malt strongest along with the alcohol warmth and the pungent hops that shows all the way to the bitter end. Overall, a nice beer, but hardly a stellar Imperial IPA or beer worth searching out for. Peel off the label before sampling this and you’ll rate it the correct way. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from King Richard’s Wine & Spirits in Michigan City, Indiana on 09-September-2015 for US$10,99 sampled at home in Washington on 20-February-2017. Bottled on 24-March-2015.

Bottle poured murky blood orange with a medium white head and nice lacing. Aromas of citrus, mango, dark fruit, and spruce tips. Flavor is medium bitter. Tasty. DialSquare (5031) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 30, 2016
UPDATED: MAY 24, 2017 Draft at Daily Growler: Amber gold thin bright white. Aroma of fresh hops.
Tastes are moderate even bitter, floral bitter, background caramel malts, great balance - very drinkable. Yeasty tangy citrus vibe. Herbal, grassy, pine, only slight oniony (thankfully). very nice.

Yum, great stuff. Lots of grapefruit, some malt in the aroma. Flavor’s similar to nose, balanced bittersweet with a little resin in the Finish. willisread (3349) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 27, 2016
Crowler from J’s. Pours a deep gold to pale orange with a finger of foam that lingers. Huge orange nose with pineapple, mango and resin notes. Clean and hides the abv fairly well. Crisp carbonation. Lighter in body than some other 3F beers, feels more west coast in body. More citrus and resin. Bitter finish that lingers, orange marmalade. Awesome.

Bottle. The pour is vibrant orange with a think head. The aroma is a hop bomb, sweet and piney. The taste is a mouthful of hops. Very nice profile.
