Style | ABV
American Double / Imperial IPA |  11.00% ABV

Availability: Summer

Notes/Commercial Description:
9.5-11.0% ABV, 100 IBUs - This complex double India pale ale has an intense citrus and floral hop aroma balanced by a velvety malt body which has been augmented with lactose milk sugar. With this different take on an IPA we have brewed an ale that is both pleasing to drink and, once again, “not normal.” Cheers! June release.

4.1/5  rDev -3.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a hazy golden, good head and lacing.

Caramel malt and grapefruit in the nose.

I pick up orange zest, pine, caramel, a buttery note, grapefruit, lemon.

Medium-high carbonation, full mouthfeel.

This was nice, but not in my upper tier of DIPAs. Buttery/sweet note in there overpowers the balance for my taste.

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.

Serving type: on-tap

O- Another great beer from 3 Floyds. Very happy I got to try this.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Bomber into 3 Floyds pint glass

A- Hazy orange with nice, tall white head. Lacing clings to glass
S- Citrusy hops in the nose (Orange/Limon). Then a milder sweetness like fresh milk
T- Orange on the back end...peel. Front is piney/limon hops. Very complex
M- This steals the show. Every sip wows my with the feel before I can even think about taste. This beer is CREAMY. Yeah... a creamy pale ale. Very nice.

O- Great beer. Still blows my mind that a citrusy pale ale can be this creamy. The milk sugars do magic in this one!

4.39/5  rDev +3.3%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Pours an orange-tinged gold capped by a clean white two finger fluffy white head. Excellent retention with sticky lacing all over the inside of the glass. Plenty of citrus and tropical fruit on on the nose, mandarin orange, pineapple, and mango, especially. Opens with tangerines and pineapple, the lactose sweetness joins in midpalate and a"dreamsicle-like" taste carries through the finish. Finishes with a slight citrus rind bitterness. Wonderful mouthfeel, creamy, velvety, and smooth, average level of carbonation. One of the more original brews out there in the DIPA/IIPA style. Very highly recommended.
