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.

Large capped bottle poured into a pint glass.
In a very difficult month, finally a nice break, so I had to go for a treat. A new FFF seemed to fit the bill.

Dark golde, light tan head with good retention and some lacing.
Aroma is mostly hops, more floral than herbal or fruity. Caramel has a role in there to pretend there is a balance.
Medium to full bodied, hoppy, fruity with a slight caramel present.
A quite nice DIPA from Three Floyds, but not as good as Dreadnaught, in my opinion. Definitely worthwhile like everything they do, regardless.
