Bottled on 2/14/14. 22oz bottle poured into a tulip. Pours black with a fluffy khaki head that sticks around and leaves great lacing and retention. Smells great. The aromas have a nice blend of citrus and tropical goodness. Lots of grapefruit and pineapple. Some orange zest in the mix. Slightly roasty. There's some subtle chocolate aromas, but the chocolate notes are much more present in the flavors. It has that typical Three Floyds aroma that you find in alot of their hoppy beers. Tastes very good. The hops really shine. Lots of citrus. More orange and grapefruit. Some fresh pine needles. Some black pepper. There's a very subtle spiciness to it. Cocoa malts are there. There's a nice roastiness going on. Alcohol is well hidden and it's dangerously drinkable. Mouthfeel is great. It's full-bodied and simply smooth. There's moderate carbonation and it's slightly velvety. Good stuff.
This is a great collaboration. It's up there with some of the best Black IPAs out there. They really nailed it. It ultimately feels like an amped up/imperial version of Alpha Klaus. Well crafted.
