22 oz bomber into my giant snifter...label art has changed since last year's release.
Not as bright of a body as their other big IPAs, appropriate for the English style. Big frothy and lacy white head that pools on the surface of the body with its bigness. Body is darker than their other DIPAs, also appropriate for the English style. Aroma has a lot of hops, but still a bit subdued. Hard to decide if it's right on for the style of if it's a little on the subdued side even. Well balanced aroma. Probably less hoppy in the nose than Alpha King (which is pretty dang hoppy), without that typical 3F's hop zing, but you can tell there were massive hops in the boil to balance the huge malt. Some complexity on the tongue, for sure. Mouthfeel is great, and overall I'd recommend trying this beer for a very big example of the style that hides the alcohol well, although for my part I'd rather be drinking a Dreadnaught or Artic Panzer Wolf right now for the price.
