received this from a trade(Likathahops) in a pint bottle. thanks
A- POurs a straw yellow with small hints of orange. two finger white fluffy head that slowly brings down some lacing. cloudy! reminds me of a hefeweisen
S- Aromas sweet apricot and stone fruits. Honey also dominates the aromas. honey suckle comes to mind. really enjoy the smells.
T- I dont know how old this bottle was but it starts off with some passion fruit and small hints of pear ans peach. some undeline tones of sweet honey. not over powering and balanced.
D- drinks very well. this is one of my favorite beers by far. i need to seek this out more often.

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.
