This stuff is hop-heroin for the hophead. The aroma comes at you miles away from the glass, a perfect floral and citrus delight. The flavor is fantastic, just the right amount of malt and a shovelful of hops. Between this and Dreadnaught, Three Floyds really know how to do it right when it comes to big hoppy brews. Cheers!

Pours a golden brown with an off-orange colored head. Thick head with nice lacing. Aroma is mostly pine hops with hints of citrus and malt. Taste is hoppy and bitter but not too much. After tast is sweet up front and bitter around the edges. Very good brew!

LePoopie (151) - Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 19, 2006
Has a nice orange amber color, with little head. Pleasant mild hoppy aroma to it. Flavor is excellent, nice and hoppy and a little bitter. Pretty good body, light on the carbonation. Overall, this is good.

Sombeast (151) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 30, 2007
Served in a Duvel glass. Clear, bright red with dense 1-finger white head, which is both sustaining and able to leave a nice lace. Aroma and flavor are intensly hoppy. Mouthfeel is surprisingly rich. Finish is long and bitter. Holds true to its name.

I really was not overly impressed on the first try,(I was spoiled by the Floyds bottle conditioned masterpieces when they were available). On second approach I found it refreshing and well rounded. The hops character has it all down to that dry, bitter finish.

Overall a very nicely done and very hoppy ale. This beer is what it is, but what it is, is a bit too much of a good thing.

Poured an amber brown with two fingers of head that did not have very good retention. The aroma is of citrus and hops. The taste begins with sweet malts and then transitions into a bitter grapefruit hop flavor. This is a very well balanced beer.

pours golden red brown with mild off-white head. nose is sweet with grapefruit and brown sugar with a hint of raisens. taste is sweet, like gumballs soaked in grapefruit juice. makes me happy to drink this and wish three floyds was sold in ice cold MN.

Golden orange with a two finger head. Aroma of sweet onion and malt. More of a sweet malty taste than hoppy. Medium mouthfeel. Very good, but I like Zombie Dust more than this one. I think most others do as well. Kind of reminds me of a more muted Dogfish Head 90 Minute IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The Floyds are making life a lot more pleasant for all of us. This is almost like grapefruit juice.
