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

Poured from a bomber into a New Belgium snifter. The pour is a hazy apricot color with a thin white head and a little lacing. The nose is spectacular. Like many FFF IPAs, you get a smorgasbord of ripe tropical fruits. I get peaches, oranges, grapefruit, and some lemon. I just love the way FFF IPAs smell.

The flavor is also wonderful here. I get fresh bread and marmalade up front, then a nearly perfectly balanced rush of hops that provide flavors of lemon, orange, and some pineapple. All the while, there's a nice caramel-like sweetness lingering in the background (must be the lactose). This is NOT a hop bomb, but the hops are certainly there. Mouthfeel is firm and a bit creamy. The finish is superb. Dry and just a little sweet. Despite the ABV, there isn't a trace of booziness.

In my opinion, nobody makes IPAs quite like Three Floyds. The bitterness levels are spot on and the hop blends provide aromas like nothing else. This one is like a slightly sweeter version of Dreadnaught. Fans of that beer, as well as Bells Hopslam (and who isn't a fan of that?) should feel at home here.

Pours an opaque golden orange with a very velvety head.

Smells of citrus, flowers, and sugar.

Citrus and floral hops are pleasantly accompanied by a sweet sugary balance.

Mouthfeel is smooth, silky, and lush all the way down.

Overall another fantastic IPA from 3F, they really can't go wrong with this style.
