22oz bottle poured into a tulip.

Appearance- mellow orange, crisp white head.

Aroma- Strong hop characteristics up front that are accompanied by noticeable citrus notes. (peach, orange)

Flavor- An incredibly complex beer that many would assuming would be overwhelming to the palate, but to an experience beer drinker this is a delightful imperial IPA. The hop profile is not overpowering, and the citrus infusion is quite wonderful. This is arguably the most citrus I've had in an IIPA that didn't come off as sweet or gimmicky.

Mouthfeel- Lingering bitterness throughout, medium body, medium carbonation. Wonderful finish.

Overall- Three Floyds does it again. Outstanding beer that must be tried - a description does not do it justice. It is a strong beer that experienced beer drinkers will love. So happy that I'm now in the Midwest and get to purchase this beer on a regular basis.
