Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: mdm46410 on 11-23-2008

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.

Appearance: Clear medium amber. Head is bright-white, fluffy, and rocky. Drops to a tiny cap and decent clar after a couple minutes. Aggressively sticky lacing.

Smell: Huge hit of pine resin and citrus. Grapefruit, tangerine, pith and oily zest. Lactose sweetness runs right behind it. Mts are big and loaded with sweet bready, caramel, and mildly roasted aromas. Slight grassiness and earthiness as well. Almost pushes toward toffee. Oily hops.

Taste: Aggressively hoppy. Pine builds as an oily, resinous, strongly bitter component. Grapefruit rind in the mix. Huge malt sweetness augmented with the super sweetness of the lactose sugars. Bready and nicely roasted. Caramel malts add another layer of sweetness. Orange and touches of tangerine as it warms.

Mouthfeel: Moderate body that leans toward full. Moderate carbonation. A touch dry. A touch creamy.

Overall: Less aggressive than other Three Floyd's DIPAs. Huge flavor, but nicely balanced for what it is. Lactose adds some backing sweetness, but ultimately the hops crush it.
