Was really looking forward to this one. This is the 4th of a group of three floyds that my brother brought home from Indiana. Saved it for the 4th of July. Was very pleased with the other 3. Poured a golden/orange color with considerable chill haze and minimum head. The chill haze dissipates as the beer warms which confirmed that it was chill haze and not floaters from being bottle conditioned. Leaves nice lacing. Smell is all hops and lives up to what i was hoping for. Taste however just didn't deliver. Overly sweet caramel flavor that overpowers the hops. Alchohol is well hidden. Overall just did not live up to what i was hoping for. I have another one in the cellar and will re-review if my opinion changes.

Served on tap at Spinoza's in Beavercreek, Ohio. The appearance is unremarkable, but with a solid head and fairly sticky lacing. The smell is tropical fruit--not as pronounced and appealing as, say, White Rajah, but still quite good. The taste consists of mango, orange, and lemon flavors, and the bitterness from the hops just isn't here--imagine, a DIPA without bitterness--instead is sweetness from the citrus hops. The mouthfeel is unusual, but not bad at all--this beer is on the thin side (it could pass for a session beer if not for the high ABV) and moderate carbonation. Overall, this is a DIPA well worth trying.

Great beer! There is a serious complexity to this beer. While it has the hop forward properties of any other DIPA's its smooth, and without a lingering bitter finish. There is a bitterness to it, but there is a malt complexity that changes the finish to make it smooth with a hint of sweetness. This beverage got better with every sip.
