4.23/5 rDev -0.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5
Appearance: It has a nice cloudy deep golden/orange color to it. It has a nice thick off-white head that dies down moderately and leaves nice lacing.
Smell: The aromas definitly give out hints of pine, citrus, pineapple, sweet caramel, lactose and bubble gum.
Taste: Like the aromas, it has a nice citrus/pineapple/tropical hop character to it with lots of pine, some spices and a sweet caramel and bready malt balance.
Mouthfeel: It has a low/medium carbonation with a nice creamy overall balance and feel.
Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied with great flavors and aromas. Not as hoppy as I usually like my DIPA's but still very good considering the different approach.
Serving type: bottle

4.08/5 rDev -4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 5 | overall: 4
650ml bottle, date 6.27.2014, poured into a Three Floyds Eye pint glass.
The beer pours nicely clear copper color, hues of amber and orange, light chill haze with a nice amount of bubbles rising to the top of the glass where a thick, frothy, white head appears, about 2 fingers high, with very nice retention that yields nice swatches of soapy lace. The aroma is bitter, plenty of juicy hops, resinous, fruity, citrusy, with loads of rich malt, with ample sweetness to counteract the hops ever so slightly. The flavors are nice, plenty of juicy citrus and mango, amply bitter with loads of pine as well, the malts are sweeter, but not overly so, they do provide some nice bitterness and some assertive richness. The mouthfeel is nice, super rich, full bodied, nice and juicy with a lovely, silky feel, carbonation is perfect with a soft, lightly dry finish. The lactose sugar really does the trick for the body, so smooth and easy.
Verdict: A very nice IIPA from Three Floyds, fitting of their "not normal" mantra with the lactose sugar addition. The mouthfeel is perfect, the hop flavors are a little darker than I like, but the balance is nice, loads of bitter goodness.

4.88/5 rDev +14.8%
look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.75
Appearance: Saffron/sunglow body with an ivory/snow head.
Aroma: Lemon, mango, papaya, and floral hops.
Taste: Papaya, grapefruit, sweet/bready malts, and floral hops.
Mouthfeel: Smooth, but with a slightly dry finish.
Overall: Another success from 3F, despite it leaving your mouth a bit dry (I like my IPAs nice and wet). Nevertheless, I enjoyed this immensely.
