look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Bottle from the brewery, 650ml into a tulip.

Copper brown, offwhite head with dense, creamy retention and webbed lace. Nose has an abundance of caramel, sweet and bready. A good dose of citrus hops, but some earthier and spicier notes too. Light on the palate, citrusy and rind-y. Still an abundace of caramel and toasty biscuit. Medium feel, quite low carb. This is very drinkable - cask treatment would be awesome.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A: pours a deep gold to medium brown with a finger and a half of off white head
S: smelled of delicious hops when I cracked the bottle open but in the glass the nose brings caramel and toffee with some of that nice juicy hop aroma
T: slightly toasty with some caramel a little bit of pine and floral hop flavor and a back and forth battle across the palate for dominance. aftertaste is a bit of oily hop and some residual sweetness from the malt
M: medium body with slightly prickly carbonation
O: very flavorful and great balance. this is my first beer from three Floyd's and it is very good.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured bomber into Duvel tulip.

LAN pours a deep reddish brown, with an inch of eggshell head. The nose is rather tame for a 3F brew: subdued hops, with some bready malts coming through. The taste follows the nose here: the malts come through, with a hint of lingering bitterness.

Overall: decent, but not particularly memorable. Glad that I tried it, but not rushing out to pick itup agin. Tastes like an IPA past its prime.
