Light gold, thin white head. Nose is bright, light citrus and orange. Sharp grapefruit, orange, and caramel flavor, overly sweet with a grapefruit linger in finish. A bit sweet and murky, as if not quite fresh.

UPDATED: MAY 27, 2013 Rerate on tap at Firkin. Pours orangey with a white head. Aroma has fresh fruit, pine and grass, with caramel. Taste is of fresh fruit, citrus and solid caramel back. Far better fresh on tap than originally. Original rating: Bomber from Discount in Waukesha. Pours a hazy orange-yellow with floaties. Aroma is peaches, sweet honey and hops. Taste is strongly sugar peach with great bitterness at the end, muted alcohol. A nice solid double ipa, however a bit disappointing, as I always expect something distinctive from 3 Floyds. 8-3-8-4-15 originally

Had on draft at FFF brewpub. Not too bad for a double, but fairly cookie-cutter in my opinion. There was nothing that really jumped out at me. Having said that, a good brew, but have had better.

Pretty good IPA, though falls just short of the pantheon currently occupied by Dreadnaught, White Knuckle, and Pliny the Elder. The aroma is just about perfect, with a heavy dose of hops and swirls of fruit and pinecombs. The taste doesnt quite live up to the aroma and there is a little too much bite on the lips. (Note: I drank this in November, about five months after this was bottled. Maybe a fresher bottle would have pushed this IPA into immortality.)

22oz bottle in a shaker. Nice hoppy aroma and flavor. Similar notes as the Dreadnaught by Three Floyds, but the texture isnt the same. The hoppiness is very good though.

JulienHuxley (5737) - Trois-Rivires, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 21, 2010
Bottle thanks to 12many. Hazy yellow pour, thin veil of white foam. Potent mango-pine aroma, classic strong IPA aromas but really on the fruity side. The flavors blend very well, you can certainly feel the bitterness, but there is also a lot of strong sweet fruity flavors to compensate, I got practically no alcohol flavors. Palate is good, a bit slick but very enjoyable nonetheless. Definitely one of the better IIPAs Ive had.

wedgie9 (2687) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 19, 2010
Tasted from a bomber bottle purchased at Lush Roscoe. Pours hazy yellow orange with a thick white head that leaves thick lace. The nose is pine resin hops with orange oil, and a cardamom-like spice. The flavor is pine and earthy hops with orange oil, and that same cardamom-like spice. The body is medium with average carbonation and a long bitter and orange oil finish.

beernbourbon (1582) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - NOV 19, 2010
Bottle thanks to a buddy in milwaukee. Pour is lightly hazy golden yellow with a small white head. Aroma is mostly resinous hop with a light citrus component as well. Also light pineapple and floral notes with a very subtle malt profile. Flavor is pine and resinous hop with a light malty sweetness that keeps it reasonable. For me, the flavor is cohesive despite the rather bitter hop profile, however it is a bit one dimensional. Solid, but not exceptional.

illinismitty (2271) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 17, 2010
Bottle at Duncans Pub. Pours amber with an off white head. Aroma of citrusy hops and honey. Medium bodied with average carbonation, and a very slight syrupy texture. Pale malt and honey backbone, with piney and citrus hops in the forefront. There is definitely some distracting phenols approaching the finish, which is grassy, green, and peppery. This was supposedly a fresh bottle, but this tasted like a 6 month old DIPA. Not really all that great. Nothing close to a fresh Dreadnaught.
