Poured into a pint glass out of a 22oz bomber.

Pours a nearly clear medium gold with a thick one finger white head. Awesome head retention and really good lacing left on the sides of the glass.

Great hop aroma full of tropical fruit. Orange and mango along with some pineapple and tangerine. No malt at all with hops providing all of the aroma. Truly outstanding.

This hop dominance carries over into the taste. A huge rush of juicy tropical citrus that never really goes away. Orange and tangerine along with a touch of pineapple. A very light touch of bread in the background from the malt but it remains restrained and allows the hops to shine. A moderate bitterness and a slight warming in the back of the throat from the alcohol. Finish a pretty crisp and dry considering the abv.

Overall, what an amazing IIPA. The drinkability on this is incredible. I had no idea what the abv was before seeing it on here and guessed it was around 7.5% That's how well it is hidden. Truly a beer to pick up should you come across it.

A - Hazy deep orange with a thin white head. Good amount of lacing.

S - Lots of citrus(grapefruit and orange rind) and pine.

T - Opens with big citrus notes followed by a nice sweetness. Bitter piney hops come through very nicely at the end.

M - Somewhat thin creamy mouthfeel. Very easy drinking for a 9.5% alcohol.

O - My first Three Floyd's experience and i'am very satisfied. Awesome DIPA that is a very eBay drinker.
