Poured on tap at Pizza Paradiso Dupont into a sampler flight.

Dull peach amber body, thin top with a tan head leaving a little white collar. Body has some nice yellow hues to it also with opaque and glowing consistency.

Hop profile is very noticeable but controlled. Fruity peach and tropics, with a little bit of hinting pine perhaps. Seems juicy as well and inviting.

Palate matches with a good peach hop angle, but more tropical accents come out. Pineapple, maybe some mango with a very juicy sweet profile. White sugar is a bit evident mixing with a subdued malt backbone. Fussel heat in flavor and feel is a little bit evident, but luckily not too overpowering or distracting. Slightly spritzy mouthfeel but with juicy flavors that shine first and force your palate away from some of the wetness.

Overall still very enjoyable for what it is.

New imperial IPA from the folks at 3 Stars

Centennial, Cascade, and Citra hops

Appearance: Pours very cloudy, obviously unfiltered. Solid band of white head that fades pretty quickly.

Aroma: Really, really good. Big orange and tropical fruit notes from the citra. Big, anchoring malt presence.

Taste: Follows the nose. Total citra bomb of a beer. Very balanced with a big, sweet malt presence that leans more toward pale than caramel. Really flavorful, good stuff.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Maybe a touch undercarbed. Could use a touch more lift off of the palate. A bit sticky. Still drinks pretty easily for what it is.

Overall: The best beer yet from 3 Stars? Drinks like a maltier Surly Abrasive, which is a huge, huge compliment. Nice work guys.

The color is an extremely hazy but bright rusty orange color with a tall fluffy light beige head. From the look of the head I was expecting some nice lacing, but there was none.

It smells more malty than hoppy with a heavy dose of caramel squares. The hops are a muted orange and flowers.

Thankfully, the hops come through more in the taste with tangerine and lilac. The sweet malt adds a heavy balance. The finish is long but a little astringent.

Mouthfeel has a nice heavy body with good carbonation and is sticky.

This is the first beer I've had from 3 stars and had never heard of them to this point. It was a very nice beer and I'm glad to have tried it. It was a good use of citra but could just use a bit more in the aroma.

3.78/5  rDev +0.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Appearance:
The beer pours a decent fluffy offwhite head that dissipates quickly but leaves some very nice lacing. The beer itself is a dark orange color that resembles a peach color. The beer is hazy and obscure.

Smell:
The beer has a strong tropical fruit smell that has a strong underlying pine smell. The tropical fruit smell appears to be mango with orange. The underlying hop smell appears to be pine and citrus.

Taste:
HOP EXPLOSION!!!! BOOM!! BOOM!! The beer has a very strong resin and citrus taste that is completely unbalanced. No malt taste is detected.

Mouthfeel:
Heavy bodied with biting carbonation. However, the beer itself feels a little thin for what is usually a more velvety feel than anything else.

Overall:
An okay DIPA and one that might come back but I personally find it to be a little too hoppy and unbalanced for my taste.
