Growler from Main Brew, poured into my large Gulden Draak tulip, Armored Fist is Black with a tan head leaving light lace.
Smell is a big blast of pungent hops, lots of tropical fruit, citrus. Sweet and intense.
Taste is fantastic. This is by far the best CDA I've had. The massive, fruity hop load really complements the slight charred notes from the dark malt. Often times I find this style clashes, but the dark malt and hops really come together into a delicious elixir here. There's just a touch of some piney hops as well, but they are a subtle back-current behind the dank citrus, tangerine. There's a modest bitterness. I'm shocked at the ABV, there's not a trace in the taste, very clean.
Mouthfeel is dry, slippery, medium light bodied.
Drinkability is dangerously high. This is a fantastic beer.

on tap at APEX, Portland
Amber brown with sandstone film.
A bit of ash and lemon but lots of tropical fruit hops.
Char, sweet coffee, a bit of brown sugar, then big lemon, pine, and mango hops.
Waxy lemon finish and bittersweet linger.
Medium, chewy, round.
Grapefruit and fruit salad CDA, not so much “D”. Lots of Simcoe passionfruit, if I had to guess. Black bits are very secondary, but lovely just the same.

02/28/14 - Half Pint glass
Listed as a 10%ABV Double Black IPA 3Floyds/Boneyard Collab
A: Pour is more of a rusted reddish brown color. All ruddy and murky looking. I think they may have missed the SRM mark here. Thin wisp of khaki bubbles forms on top slipping out to just a thin crown. A few splotchy dots of stick noted. Not the most attractive looking brew I must say.
S: The nose is bursting with super Citra hop aromatics. Bright and floral with orange, tangerine, and grapefruit mostly. I am not getting much else here to be honest. Some subtle malt sweetness in the form of candied citrus really and a hint of chalky cocoa powder. Quite fragrant with the citrus hops really.
T: Taste is an orange crush with loads of citrusy hop flavors and an abrasive hop bitterness that scrubs across the palate. Tangerine and grapefruit combined. Malt is practically absent minus some faint toasted cracker bits and some mild coffee roast on the finish. Dash of cocoa powder and there is something lightly herbaceous. It’s a little bit of an odd mixture with the coffee. Very light on the sweetness and dry with a resinous linger. Alcohol is deceptively well hidden for a 10% ABV brew this drinks more like a single IPA would. Crazy brew although enjoyable I would say.
M: The beer maintains a light body for such big ABV. Medium fullness overall. Upper level of constricting bitterness. Finishes out very dry with a long lasting linger.
D: This beer is Beast Mode! Big citrus blast of flavor with a scarce malt presence. Super bitter and dry with the alcohol incredibly well masked at 10%. What a great tick to find here.
