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.

I bought this in a trip to a small liquor store in Blue Island, Il.

Pours into a nice golden yellow-ish orange color. The smell is great, slightly piney with some floral notes.

This brew starts kinda bitter up from, but then has a nice hoppy middle and finish.

A great brew. i have had a couple of the Three Flods that didn't live up to the hype, but this is a great brew.

I think this is my favorite beer that I have had from Three Floyd's. It's kinda like a kicked up, sweeter Zombie Dust IMO. Has some citrus notes to it and its kinda sweet, but not over powering sweet. I paired this with the pulled pork sandwhich from the brew pub (I recommend this too).
This is one that I would have to be careful with though. It drinks easy and has a fairly high alcohol content.

Served on tap at the brew pub in a snifter 8/2012

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A - Pours a hazy golden-orange color with a finger of frothy white head. The head fades down at a normal pace leaving behind some nice lacing.

S - Aroma is full of grapefruit, orange, pine, and floral hops with some sweet caramel malts and a hint of booze.

T - Starts off full of grapefruit, orange, and citrus hops with some bitterness and some sweet caramel malts. Through the middle, some pine and floral hops come through with some more bitterness and some biscuit malts. The finish is a mix of grapefruit and pine hops with some resiny bitterness, sweet caramel malts, and touch of booze.

M - Medium-full bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a dry, bitter, and warming finish.

D - Very drinkable. Nice big DIPA. Good overall balance with a nice hop profile and bitterness throughout.
