650ml bottle poured into a Three Floyds Teku glass.
The beer pours a nice copper color, clear complexion with a few bubbles rising to the top of the glass. A nice, soft, cloudy white head rises out of the glass, nearly 2 fingers high that has nice retention and leaves behind a nice amount of soapy lacing. The aroma is very fruit forward, notes of mango, pineapple and tart grapefruit with earthy pine behind it, very resinous, some caramel malt character provides some sweetness and alcohol lingers behind. The flavors are very nice, tropical mango, tart grapefruit and lemon, tangerine sweetness brings out some pineapple flavors as well. There are some floral undertones that sneak out as well before the caramel malt and alcohol sweetness take over the finish of this beer. The body is very nice and full, coats the mouth well with a fairly dry bitter finish.
Verdict: A very nice Double IPA from Three Floyds, but hardly a 'not normal' beer. The sweetness and high octane alcohol hinder this beer a bit and make it harder for the bright citrus and fruit flavors to really shine. Still, this is a very worthy brew that is very much worth trying.
