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.

Thanks bstyle for this
22 oz bottle, dated 6/27/14, poured into a snifter.

A- A hazy orange/copper color with a two finger white head.

S- Citrus, tropical fruits, floral hops, nice sweet malt backbone.

T- Cotrus, tropical fruits, earthy floral hops, piney hops in the finish, some sweet caramel malts, hints of the lactose sugar, nice balance.

M- Smooth, fully body, creamy.

O- Another great beer from 3 Floyds. Very happy I got to try this.

Bomber into 3 Floyds pint glass

A- Hazy orange with nice, tall white head. Lacing clings to glass
S- Citrusy hops in the nose (Orange/Limon). Then a milder sweetness like fresh milk
T- Orange on the back end...peel. Front is piney/limon hops. Very complex
M- This steals the show. Every sip wows my with the feel before I can even think about taste. This beer is CREAMY. Yeah... a creamy pale ale. Very nice.

O- Great beer. Still blows my mind that a citrusy pale ale can be this creamy. The milk sugars do magic in this one!

Pours an orange-tinged gold capped by a clean white two finger fluffy white head. Excellent retention with sticky lacing all over the inside of the glass. Plenty of citrus and tropical fruit on on the nose, mandarin orange, pineapple, and mango, especially. Opens with tangerines and pineapple, the lactose sweetness joins in midpalate and a"dreamsicle-like" taste carries through the finish. Finishes with a slight citrus rind bitterness. Wonderful mouthfeel, creamy, velvety, and smooth, average level of carbonation. One of the more original brews out there in the DIPA/IIPA style. Very highly recommended.
