Alright, ...am I going to get a real IPA with dark tendencies or am I going to get another hoppy Porter? It seems that most brewers are simply incapable of getting this right. But with 3 Floyds, I have high expectations.

Looking nothing like IPA at all, its ominously dark color is even more intense than those porters- its very stout-like, even as its arid and fluffy, sandy-white foam builds a tall column inside the glass. With tremendous retention and intricately splattering the glass with lace.

Sharp aromas of hops and char tilt toward more citrusy and resinous notions. White grapefruit, fresh orange peels, broken pine needles and the scent of a freshly mowed lawn all come to mind as the scent shifts from hops to malt. Its heavy toast character adds an acute character to the ale along with dry cocoa, campfire and burnt caramel.

Its taste is robust with the over-cooked caramels cocoa and coffee to start. But all that is quickly thrown to the wayside as the char and hops work in tandem across the middle. Tangy white grapefruit juicy, burnt citrus peels, and light sourish fructose gives the ale a decisive zesty quality. Finishing with resinous pine and burnt spruce- a whimsy of Christmas trees come to mind. The lingering char gives a coffee-like bitterness and seems to elevate the piney bitterness from hops.

Medium-bodied, the ale's high carbonation gives a lift to its tepid sweetness, giving the ale an airy effect. Forgivably, its dryness is also its curse as it opens up to ashy and roast-derived astringent textures as the ale closes. Lingering pine-type bitterness and char extend well into the next taste.

There's no doubt that this is and IPA first and the charred grains act in support. Another well-done ale by the hop experts at Three Floyds.
