On tap at FFF brewpub. This was actually listed as their english style Double IPA. It was 8% alcohol with 80 IBUs I believe. It was an american spin on an english style, with nice hoppy notes and resins, full of flavorful citrus and grapefruit, but also offered the traditional english IPA mouthfeel and flavor profile. It was extremely malty, and rounded, as expected. The unique thing is that they incorporated the not so bitter english hops, with a blend of american hops, which worked out well.

On tap at Three Floyds Brewpub, and served in a bowtie. This brew poured a dark copper color with a good sized, foamy, beige head that had decent retention. Some nice, sticky, thick lacing was left around the glass. The aroma of the beer was made up of sweet citrus notes, toffee, and also some spicy pine. The flavor was sticky and sweet with notes of orange, caramel, toffee, and finished up with a short lived piney bitterness. The mouthfeel was slightly resiny and medium to full-bodied with decent carbonation. Yet another excellent, highly hopped pale ale from the Floyds!!! I would love to see this bottled.

Drinking notes from GTM 05: Wow lots of different hop notes. Beer is much better once it warms up. Hop notes blend a lot nicer.

Very, very bitter with hints of floral goodness. The bitterness seems to over power everything though. This stuff isnt too bad, but I wouldnt go breaking down any doors for it.

draft at the brewery. big hop aroma with some scent of pine. Reddish orange in color with a frothy white head. Nice flavor of spice and sweetness. Good body with sweet flavor that dries out at the end. I enjoyed this beer.

On tap at the brewpub. Light copper with oranges and yellows. Light ring of off white foam. Fruity esters, piney hops, and a touch of caramel in the nose. Huge amounts of hop flavor (Fuggles). Very nice. Starts out sweet and dries out at the end. Very nice beer. Id love a case.

grapefruit-copper body, hazy, soft white head; a little spice, some earthiness, and citrus--apricot, says the menu; an ipa, but WHAM#$! what i will never forget is that every gulp ended with a massive dry and bitter hop decapitation attack--awesome.

Really, really bitter. Nutty, walnut, almond flavors -- like a roasted chestnut. Floral dominates the nose. Pale malts. Fairly good.

brownish in color thick off white head well laced.. smells very piney hints of gin like aroma some light sweetness too. Full oily thick palate. Very piney flavor reminded me of some gin touch of malt.. brought thoughts of pine sol to my head.
